Bluetooth Headphones for Working Out

I bought a couple sets of Bluetooth Headphones from Amazon.ca but they do not stay on my head and want to find a set that will (the type I bought were behind the head, over the ears type). To me, music quality is not the main thing -staying on, fit, comfort and connectivity are. I am considering the Sport-Fi X6 found here
http://www.amazon.com/MEElectronics-Spo ... port-fi+x6

Please give me some feedback on wireless headphones that you have found great to use, especially if you are

1. Fairly small female. ( the headphones I bought they work for my husband but not me)
2. Work out like a fiend - usually at the gym 2 hours plus 5 days a week. Do a combination of running, weights, and tabata/bootcamp (active) workouts.

We are retired and I do not want to spend more then $100.00.

Of course if you know of a good Canadian deal out there, I would love to hear about it but I do have easy access to the border and mail pick-up over there.

Thanks everyone!

I've heard good things about JayBird Bluebuds X but they're almost twice your budget.

Yeah, too much - I know you get what you pay for but that is just way out of line with what I wanted to spend. Thanks though!

I wanted bluetooth earbuds for work, but sometimes I wear a headset and most of the bluetooth earbuds stuck out too far to put the headset on. This allows me to use my own earbuds or headphones. I got it on sale, but I think it's still a good deal at $40.

I need headphones as well so figure I may as well but both together.

They stay in the ear no problem? Price is right on them :)

The Backbeats? Yes - they come with 3 sizes of ear tips (s/m/l) so you can customize the fit.
They also have little stabilizers to ensure they stay in.
