Best Bluetooth Earphones for less than R1000

For use in the gym for a few hours a week.

Sometimes when I get the urge to exercise, I lay down and wait for it to go away it does not take long...

Use whatever  headphone you have already and get a Fiio BTR1. You can clip the Fiio directly to the cans.

Failing that, the MPOW Bluetooth Receivers are incredible for the money.

I've had two pairs of these and I am satisfied. The first pair broke after about two years of use and I've had the current pair for about one and a half years with no issues thus far.

The other, sub R1000 ones, that I've tried had a receiver that was too heavy and large. This made them uncomfortable to wear due to the asymmetrical weight.
