    I want to put aside my Pre in the corner and be able to walk around (30 FT) the gym listening to Pandora and/or Podcasts on my Headset.
    Any suggestions?

    i have plantronics voyager 855 (stereo) bluetooth. for music to stream whatever headset you use has to allow a2dp bluetooth connection

    works fine, but sound is tinny and you have to manually press call button on headset to answer calls (buzz is that this will/can be fixed ins updates).inexpensive tho..think i paid $35 on web. has detachable 2ndearpiece for stereo that helps sound quality.

    I gone through a bunch of Moto and Plantronic headsets and find the Motos have had better range.

    From that alone I'd say grab some Motos. Problem being from what I've read the S9s don't work to well in a gym environment from sweat.
    I have some HT820's and they work well, I sit the phone on a shelf about 15 feet away while working out.
    I haven't done a range test of them with the Pre but with a MotoQ9c and a T-Pro I could get 75feet away with obsticals(sp?) before it started breaking up losing the signal completely a few paces more.

    I use the Motorola S9. Works great for me at the gym.

    Motorola S9 (or the newer S9-HDs)

    As for walking around 30ft range, that might be tough. Another suggestion is to wear the Pre on an armband. Paired with the S9s you'll have the luxury of no wires while you workout.
