No, it is not really that fast for music transfer.

Wireless stereo audio headsets AND remote control of the player (volume, track skip) from the headset.

Yes, most headphones including the Insignia BT headphones will pair with both. When you pick-up a call with the headphones, it stops the player, and automatically switches the headphones into headset mode. When you hang up, the player will automatically restart and the headphone go back into stereo mode.

Thanks

You Best Buy should have a selection of headphones which have been tested to work with the Insignia players and support Cellphone operation.

Thanks

We don't have a Best Buy in my city

And I don't like shopping for things like that until I physically touch them...

Fry's/Outpost? I'd imagine Wal-Mart would have a limited selection as well.

Usually cell phone stores have some because many mobile phones now have a2dp. I know ATT has some in their stores, I don't remember what kind though. I would image Verizon and other have some too. Also, if you have a Sony outlet store, they have some.

Look for the 'Spider' Bluetooth headset at Radio Shack...these were on clearance for a while for under $50, and they are very similar to the Insignia model. I have never seen BT stereo headphones at those other stores you listed.

Default BT Stereo Headphones

I purchased a set of Logitech "FreePulse" BT headphones six months ago. They been very reliable, and includes a small transmitter module that plugs into ANY 1/8" jack. The phones are not cellular capable in that there is no mic, but the sound quality is very good with a little bias towards bass. They will play for 5 to 6 hrs continuously at 3/4 volume. Very compact and light weight and comfortable. They pair up nicely with my Sony Vaio Laptop(built in A2DP BT). When I bought them they were $100 US.

Edit>> I got mine at BestBuy but I think you can get them directly from Logitech.

Default Bluetooth Headphones I've used

Here is my experience with bluetooth headphones. These aren't recommendations, just my observations on a few of the budget-priced bluetooth headphones. Love the Pilot - fantastic value!

Insignia headphones - returned:
Pros
1. Most affordable -great value for the money
2. Can change songs
Cons
1. Not real comfortable
2. Lowest volume is still quite loud
3. Volume control is hard to reach

Cardo S-2 - returned:
Pros
1. Very affordable ~$65.
2. Foldable
3. Comfortable
Cons
1. Lowest volume is still quite loud
2. Weak Bass
3. Stopped working after two weeks

Freepulse - still using after a couple of months:
Pros
1. Can lower volume to very low level
2. Better Bass
3. Volume control easy to use
Cons
1. No ability to change songs

I have to agree, I like the Logitechs. Shame they don't pair with phones, but I would be afraid to wear them in the car anyway, probably get pulled over.

Wow, too bad you weren't apprehensive about wearing phones in the car because it would impair you ability to drive... I've actually seen people driving with headphones on. Scary.
