Instead of offering specific models of Bluetooth headsets for prospective buyers, the following is a guide to identifying the model that is right for you.
The technological benefits that a Bluetooth device offers are redundant if the device it is being paired with is not compatible. In this case the purchased headset should be checked thoroughly for compatibility with the purchaser’s handset.
As with any purchase which is attached to the human body, comfort and practical ease is of paramount importance. Women, and some Men, should check that a Bluetooth headset doesn’t tangle with long hair. In addition to this it is worth remembering that the smaller the headset, the smaller the buttons.
Always look for Bluetooth headsets which carry high battery life. Talk-time and standby time must be taken into consideration. Also check whether the battery is replaceable when required and whether it can be charged with a car-kit or USB. Usually the bigger and weightier the headset, the longer the battery life.
Purpose of Bluetooth Mobile Phone Headsets
Simple, no wires. Thus, convenience. Some Bluetooth headsets have a boom microphone and some do not. A boom is an extended microphone that leans towards the mouth. Whilst the microphone’s proximity to the mouth can result in better audio clarity, boom Bluetooth headsets tend to be slightly larger. Whilst this may not be a factor for use in an office, it may be a factor for use with a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone.
The Bluetooth headset must have the ability to quest and be paired with up to seven such devices. By pairing, you are connecting the headset and your phone instantly, and the two will recall each other’s names and connect each time until you decide to break up the pairing. Multiple pairing is growing in importance as more of us use bluetooth headsets at work as well as on the road. For example, I use my headset with my mobile phone, laptop and office phone inconjunction with a base station and handset lifter.
Bluetooth headsets should have a range of around 10 metres, 33 feet, which is standard for most Bluetooth devices. One must verify this capability to ensure that there is no difficulty after the purchase.
Price of Bluetooth Headsets
This is an inevitable factor, and is also very important, as one should buy a Bluetooth headset which is based upon a budget defined by what the headset will be used for. The Price of headsets range from £10 to £150 and the features vary accordingly. Keeping a budget between £30 to £70 will allow you to gain value for money without compromising on the number of features it offers.
Bluetooth Mobile Phone Headset Features
Look for Bluetooth headsets that possess the features which you are looking for. These are important questions which you must ask yourself before buying a Bluetooth headset. The features of a headset need to match up to the reason it is being bought in the first place!
Headset Activation of Bluetooth
Bluetooth headset Functions should be accessible through either voice – activation or hands-on-maintenance. You should look for Voice dialling, last number redial, volume control and mute etc. in a good Bluetooth headset.
Style and Looks
Style is of course important to everyone and you must avoid purchasing a style that you are likely to go off and end up having to buy another Bluetooth headset 5 minutes later! Despite this it is crucial to remember that looks and practicality are important in equal measure!
The current range of Bluetooth headsets is really quite extensive, resulting in a wide variety of choice. Styles, features and compatibility all vary so give careful consideration and find the device that is right for you.
