Dell has a 48-hour sale, and there's a Sony bluetooth headset that's half-off. They are not the earbud types, but they are not overly big either. The obvious draw here is the lack of a cord. I was thinking of getting this for my kid's birthday. So, some quick questions:
- does the iPod support bluetooth devices? (he could also use it with his laptop, but it would be nice to use it with the iPod)
- has anyone her ever used bluetooth headsets with their iPod/iPhone and, if so, any comments?
- 50% off is nice and all, but even at the full list price this set is at the low-end of the price range: should I be concerned?

Here's the link:

Cool, so it supports it! And it will also support AVRCP (pause/play/skip -- perhaps volume control?)

Edit: The volume control and pause/play work, but not the skip forward/back. At least according to this review (it may have changed since then):
