Hands Free Laws - Comply With Bluetooth Headsets

Aug 7, 2008
Bluetooth headsets are quickly becoming the most popular cell phone accessory on the market today. Headsets are the second largest Bluetooth application after the cell phone and are the biggest cell phone accessory. The potential and market for Bluetooth Headsets are expected to increase significantly from 2006 to 2011.

Bluetooth Headsets are truly hands-free and thus comply with the new state laws that require drivers to use hands-free communications while driving. (The new California State Cell Phone law has received national attention since it went into force on July 1st 2008) Since there are no wires to get tangled up in, you will drive more comfortably and safely. Bluetooth headsets are the new stylish way to talk hands-free and most of the newer models eliminate background noise. Many models allow users to have clear phone conversations in dynamic noise environments because two microphones separate the user's voice from background and wind noise to enhance his or her voice for a natural-sounding conversation. Many of them include voice recognition so that you can give basic commands like "call someone" or "Pair mode" These basic commands allow you to connect to your phone or make a call without ever picking up your phone or dialing manually. They are a real convenience, especially in the car.

Bluetooth headsets are designed to be very lightweight and comfortable. They are typically worn over one ear and wearing these headsets are so much more comfortable to than having to hold your phone up to your ear. (Not to mention using a headset could help prevent your cell phone from giving you brain cancer.) The designs of the headsets are quickly becoming a fashion accessory and are available in a number of interesting styles and colors. Many are being tailored to fit your fashionable needs. Design pioneers have turned headset technology into fashion accessories -- emphasizing fun, fashion, glitz and glamour. It's this combination of form-and-function, style-and-substance that proves Bluetooth headsets go way beyond trendy technology; they make life. Today's typical Bluetooth headset is small and elegant and weighs only about 7.9 grams.

Battery Life

The battery life and talk time on Bluetooth headsets are excellent. Many models are able to achieve talk times of 4 hours or more before needing a recharge.

Wireless Connectivity

Wireless connection is the most important advantage of Bluetooth headsets. This connection offers true freedom and convenience. There are many benefits and advantages to using wireless devices. Along with improving safety as a result of eliminating wires, wireless also offers you plenty of other advantages. Wireless headsets help in a big way in allowing you to do your work uninterrupted, thereby saving time. Most Bluetooth headsets allow communication up to a range of about 30 feet, the technology does allow further communications beyond 30 feet but generally in the headset market the distance is limited to 30 feet.

Noise Canceling Features

A huge benefit of buying a high-end headset is the noise cancellation features they offer. Many of the new Jawbone headsets use Noise Assassin, Noise Assassin's filtering is active by default on these headsets. Noise Assassin is probably one of the best noise suppression technologies I've ever tested on a Bluetooth device. I went from sitting in a quiet room to sitting next to the A/C while using the Jawbone 2 and the caller couldn't even tell the difference. Callers stated that my voice was very clear and that they couldn't tell I was on a headset.

My personal favorite is the Motorola H700, I use it daily and I love its' capabilities. Many days I forget I am even wearing it. In the past few years Motorola products have no doubt become closer to life and more practical by nature. The new H620 & H560 have been designed and developed to help you use it while jogging or driving. Motorola has also joined the fashion game with its headsets, which are mostly designed to match the company's phones. The Motorola RAZR H3 headset, for example, is obviously meant to match the RAZR range of phones, while the Motorola H500 comes in four different colors to match the many colors of the PERL and the RAZR.

Pairing

In order to connect your headset to your cell phone you must do something called pairing. Pairing allows your Bluetooth headset connect to another Bluetooth device, such as your cell phone. On most models, pairing is a snap - just put the headset into pairing mode and have your phone search for it and then put in the pass code. (the default pairing code for most Bluetooth devices is 0000) A nice feature to have is a headset that can switch on the fly between multiple devices.
