Recommendations for Bluetooth earphones for iPhone 7?

The iPhone 7 only has one socket, shared for both charging and earphones. This means you can't charge it and make phone calls at the same time, except for short calls where you might not need both hands free. One of the few ways around this is to use Bluetooth earphones.

I bought two sets of Bluetooth earphones from eBay for under £10 each, and although the received audio was fantastic quality and even good enough for music, the sent audio was terrible and constantly breaking up, meaning that the other party couldn't hear me. Obviously they were designed for listening to music rather than two-way phone calls. I got refunds on both.

Therefore can anyone please recommend some reasonably-priced Bluetooth earphones for the iPhone 7?
