Nothing beats a wireless headset. No cables to interfere with day to day business, and the ability to be many feet away from your device.
With so many on the market, how on earth do you get the best one thats suited to your needs without spending a boatload of money? One of the first steps is to ask friends that might have one how they would rate there model. Then do a few searches online to see if you can come up with a forum or group that talks about the model you are interested in, in depth. If you feel like traveling down to the local cell phone or electronics store, the sales reps pretty much live and breath bluetooth headsets that pair with mobile devices, so they could match one to your needs.
In talking about online reviews, Information Week has come up with a review of three cool bluetooth headsets. They feature the must have new feature, noise cancellation technology. This ensures that background noise is muted, without looking for a quite location to make calls.
In their reviews, they look at the Aliph Jawbone a 14 gram bulky headset with 6 hours talktime or 120 minute standby. The Gennum nX6000, the smallest of the three, and least obtrusive weighing in at 10.9 grams. Again with 6 hours talk time and 90 hours stand by. And last, the Plantronics Discovery 655 at 9grams, with simple controls and with a few different ways to recharge, either through USB, AC, or through AA batteries.
The best thing to do when looking at Bluetooth headsets is to actually try them on, and get a feel for them. They will last long, so you dont want to get stuck with a sub par one that doesnt suite your tastes. Check out stores that offer a 30 day refund if you arent happy with your purchase, return it, and try another bluetooth model.
