    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to buy a new "sports headphone" to be used at the gym. Unfortunately, where I am, I only either have bluetooth 2.0 + NFC or Bluetooth 4.0 (only 1 or 2 options) without NFC.

    I am really keen on NFC, as I have a S4 and really keen to try NFC, would really appreciate any feedback on this? Is BT2.0 with NFC a better option in terms of easy of use or a simple BT3.0 or BT4.0 without NFC be a safer bet?

    I am not too sure how stable the NFC technology now is, so thats my only concern.

    Would appreciate some feedback on this.

    Thanks

    Since NFC only works up to a few inches, it must be used just for the setup. The Bluetooth would then be used as the link between the headphones and phone.

    Hi,

    Thanks. I was aware of that, I feel the ease of set-up is a big plus. The NFC one comes with BT 2.0, so what I am trying to figure out is which is a better deal out of the 2 below:

    1. NFC & BT2 2.0
    2. BT4.0 without NFC.

    Would really appreciate your input on this. Thanks.

    Since I don't remember having a problem pairing up Bluetooth devices, I'd prefer the BT4.0. <shrug>
