We've already given you our take on Etymotic's forthcoming ety8 Bluetooth earbuds, and now the folks at Laptop mag have taken the chunky cans for a spin. The earbuds are connected to each other via a behind-the-head wire and can be paired with your iPod ($299 with adapter) or with any Bluetooth-enabled device ($199 without adapter). The adapter uses your iPod's battery for power and controls are embedded on the right earbud. A single charge should give the ety8s about 8 to 10 hours of battery life.
