I'm working on a custom PCB for my makerproject which contains several sensors, and a Teensy. In previous versions of the PCB I've included a connector where I've plugged in a HC-05 bluetooth module to give my board bluetooth capability.

In the next revision I'd like to solder on a bluetooth module, so that it doesn't have the big, flimsy, HC-05 module sticking out.

I've been looking around various sites, like Sparkfun, Adafruit, and Farnell, but it's hard to determine which bluetooth module I should use.

Can anyone recommend a bluetooth module that is easy to work with, kinda small, and which can be soldered onto my custom PCB? Any tips would be highly appreciated.
