Looking for decent bluetooth over-ear headphones ranging between $100-$200.
Any suggestions?

Anyone know where I can find a good quality pair of the old-style earphones with the foam covers that don't intrude all the way into your ears like all the current "noise cancelling" silicone ones?
All of the current types fall out of my ears. I had enough of trying to get them to stay in my ears.
I don't need all that "noise cancelling" stupidity. I just need decent quality earphones that stay for heavens sake stay in my ears, and have a mic.
A thick wire is a nice plus.

Any recommendations?

TIA!

I'm not questioning your experiences on the matter, but unless you're using tips that are completely the wrong size for you, the 'current' types will always stay in your ear better than the old school, foam over hard plastic types.

I would however recommend that you try a pair with foam tips. Think of it like earplugs. You still have to use the right size, but the idea is that you squeeze it into a smaller form, put it in your ear, and it expands to fill the space. Those will not fall out by themselves, that I guarantee.

I have the same problem. From the slightest pull of the wire it slips out. Although this one stays in nicely for me. http://amazon.com/dp/B003EM8008/?tag=cl03f-20

Recommendations for decent on or over the ear headphones in the $150-$200 range?  Mostly for general use and little bit of traveling.  I wan't impressed with my Bose HT speakers so got rid of them, are the headphones better?

Are these your first noise reducing pair of headphones?

Adorama has Sennheiser MM 30G Noise Isolating Earbuds & Headset on sale $19.95. Shipping is free. You will only see sale price once in cart.

Amazon has it for $29.99 with a 3.9 star review.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
