In the past few years, Bluetooth headsets have become must-have accessories for cell phone fanatics. The benefits of these hands-free, wireless devices are obvious, particularly in the wake of state and local laws that require the use of a headset while driving. And just as the number of headsets has exploded, the number of Bluetooth cell phones has increased as well. Integrated Bluetooth is now present in a broad range of cell phones--from high-end smartphones to low-end functional models. Of course, cell phone Bluetooth usage is not limited to just headsets--you can also use Bluetooth to stream music wirelessly, connect to the Web, transfer files, and more.
Sound Quality. Clear and strong sound quality is a must, as is volume control, to help with a weak connection. One key feature to look for with a Bluetooth headset is Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Technology. DSP allows headset speakers to compensate for background noise by increasing the listening volume level automatically.
Comfort. If the device has an earhook, make sure that it fits comfortably around your ear. If it has a boom, some of them have a size-option that can make them more suitable to fit. The least comfortable option is the "in the ear" headset, but its higher sound quality and clarity can make it a good option if you don¡¯t mind the positioning.
Pairing. Device pairing is the ability of a Bluetooth headset to search for and recognize another device, like you phone, printer or music device. A Bluetooth headset should be able to find and function with up to seven devices.
Range of Use. The headset should have an unobstructed range of at least 10 meters (about thirty feet) ¨C which is standard for Bluetooth Class 2 devices. You can verify this range by using the headset in obstructed and unobstructed distances from the phone or wireless device so you are sure of its capabilities.
Ease of Use. Is there voice-activation for hands-free use? Can all or most of the functions be managed this way? Making sure that the device can be used hands-free keeps you out of danger of many states no-cell-phone laws while driving.
Battery. A common complaint among Bluetooth headset users is lack of battery life.* Look for 8 hours of talk or play-time, up to 100 hours when idle.
Compatibility. Should comply with at least Bluetooth 1.1 technology.* 1.2 is becoming more common. This version helps to eliminate radio frequency interference with a frequency hopping option for better security.
Functionality. Functions should be accessible through either voice ¨Cactivation or hands-on-maintenance.
Some functions to look for are:* Last number redial
Style. Last but not at all least is the style of the device. There are two major categories for current Bluetooth headsets ¨C boom or no boom. A boom is a mouth-piece attachment that looks like something an operator would wear.* Boom options ¨C While they can be heavier and bulky, they offer higher clarity.
