    "My all time favorite bluetooth headphones are Bluephonic Wireless Sport. I jog or ride a bicycle every morning, and these are the best bluetooth headphones I've found yet. They never seem to lose connection when I'm running, which a lot of other headphones do, and they stay put without being uncomfortable. Definitely a must for any exercise regime."

If you looked at the cover you would not think to purchase this for a man. The book itself was complex and had a lot of mystery. It was hard to start but built depth as it progressed. They both enjoyed the book and are looking for others by this author"

This is just something you guess because it's a game and its cheap, when you can be mistakenly offering something the person isn't into to."
