The Hype Over Bluetooth Headsets

Jul 30, 2008
Bluetooth headsets sales have been more than doubling on a global basis for the last several years. We are talking in the hundreds of millions sold. So what is the hype? Why are Bluetooth headsets so popular? For starters they are chosen not only for their functionality but also for their wearability. Bluetooth headsets are generally very lightweight, worn over one ear and achieve talk times from 1-4 hours before needing a recharge.

Bluetooth headsets are being tailored to fit your most fashionable needs. They are small, elegant headsets that usually weigh in at only 7.9 grams. These headsets truly are a state-of-the-art technological advancement and this technology is just out there waiting for you! Bluetooth headsets are the hands-free solution to communicating with friends and family while driving. With such a large and growing market it should be easy to find a bluetooth headset that will accommodate everyones needs and wants.

Some wireless headsets have a range of 100 metres (300 feet). Bluetooth headsets are only good for a range of about 1 meter (30 feet). So if you need to move a reasonable distance from your desk or away from your mobile phone you will need to have a wireless headset rather than a bluetooth.

Some Bluetooth models are available in stereo, which you might consider a plus if you listen to music on your cell. But this luxury comes with a price, and yes they're expensive. Bluetooth Headsets are truly hands-free and thus comply with the new state laws that require drivers to use hands-free communications while driving. Moreover there are no wires to get tangled up in. Bluetooth technology is now used by most major headset manufacturers and are becoming very popular because they are some of the best headsets that you can buy.

One headset manufacturer in particular is Samsung. Samsung has demonstrated its versatility in the mobile industry by targeting the rapidly-growing mobile accessory market with the launch of some new Bluetooth headsets. Their latest Bluetooth headsets are elegantly designed and have superb sound quality. Samsung produces some of the smallest and lightest Bluetooth headsets found in the world. Samsung even produces headsets with No Earhooks that stays put in your ear like the Samsung Wep200.

If you are looking for battery life, the Plantronics Voyager 510 provides up to 12 hours of wireless talk time over your PC and pairs to your phone at the same time. With one press of a button you can switch back and forth between your PC and phone. Plantronics Bluetooth headsets are extensively used in many Fortune 500 corporations. They have been featured in numerous films and also many high-profile events.

My personal choice for bluetooth is the Motorola H700, although mine is about a year old, I still love the lightweight and sound quality. It wasn't until I bought the motorola that my faith in bluetooth sound quality was revived. My previous bluetooth headsets were plagued with sound quality and severe echo problems. Motorola offers some very high quality bluetooth headsets with some sleek new designs.

No matter which bluetooth you choose, most well known manufacturers make a quality headset. Your choice will boil down to what features and options you want to have. Do your research and find which one offers the features you need and want at a price that meets your budget.
