Who uses BT earbuds and how well do they work?

I've been using wired speakers and they work great. One problem, I had to solder the connections and the part that goes into the amp as failed several times. I have to disconnect each time I get off the bike, so it gets pulled around a bit.

I'm thinking of some ear pods, earbuds, etc...

Not looking to spend a lot and some soft foam would probably be best for long term comfort.

One thing I noticed was that some wired earbuds is that if they are positioned exactly right (iPod Original) they lose their sound.

I see some that look like iPhone clones, but don't know how comfortable those would be under a helmet.

Is there a universal charging for these so I can carry a charger on the bike?

I've been using ifrogz plugz wireless bluetooth earbuds and find they work quite well. Not very expensive and fit comfortably under my helmet.
I have also used ifrogz ear pollution wired earbuds with a Griffin itrip clip bluetooth dongle I purchased separately.

Missed your last question.
I mounted a usb charger to my handle bars.
