Life is a balancing act – whether you're a working professional putting in long hours at the office who is barely squeezing in some recreation time each week, or you're busy driving your kids to their activities and in between that just trying to stay on top of daily chores. How can you do all this and stay in touch with friends and family, make plans and keep your connected life in tact?
Bluetooth wireless headsets were designed to help make the chaos of daily life a bit more manageable. They'll let you take and make calls while on the go with ease and convenience. Never "lose touch" with anyone in your life again.
Here's a guide to some of the latest and greatest Bluetooth headsets – pick up one for yourself; give one as a gift to a fellow hectic life leader.
Working out without checking out
You've finally put the kids down for a nap. Or you met the last deadline of the day. This is your chance to squeeze in that quick workout—whether it's running on the treadmill or popping in an exercise DVD.
Try the BlueAnt Pump HD Sportbuds or the Motorola S11-HD Wireless Stereo Headset. Not only do they deliver HD audio so that killer workout playlist sounds as crisp as it should, both designs keep moisture out while sweating out the stress. Their built-in microphone and controls also let you take and make calls hands-free and on the run… literally.
Being super busy means letting things slip through the cracks sometimes – hey, it happens. We've all been there. If you're the type of person who can never remember where you last put down the TV remote or find yourself wondering why you just walked into a certain room, check out the Plantronics Marque 2 Bluetooth Headset. The DeepSleep mode ensures that your headset won't run out of power should you leave it under the seat of your car and not find it again til next Tuesday.
The wireless technology allows the headset to stay charged for up to five months – never worry about keeping it plugged in when not in use.
Shop smart; communicate smarter
Grocery shopping is one of the most dreaded yet essential chores on the weekly to-do list. Plus, depending on the time of day, it can be a hectic, noisy and an even competitive ordeal (we're looking at you, bargain shoppers). If you want to take or make a phone call during your trip, you'll need something hands-free to maintain control of that shopping cart.
The Bose® Bluetooth Series 2 is created for people constantly on the go, and it works wonderfully in crowded playrooms, at busy grocery stores or amidst noisy traffic. The headset is engineered to react automatically as noise levels change, allowing you to hear your calls better. It also has a noise-rejecting microphone system that lets callers hear you in windy or rowdy environments.
Coordinate and plan
Your boss is on one line, the daycare is calling in and you're in the middle of cooking dinner. Now what?
The ERA™ by Jawbone® Bluetooth Headset has Simultaneous Multipoint technology, meaning you can manage two calls from two different phones at once. Easily flip back and forth between parties and coordinate all of your deadlines and your family's activities for the week, no matter what you're doing, thanks to this hands-free device.
Whistle—or talk—while you work
If your job takes up most of your free time, and you feel like you've got a phone permanently attached to your ear some days, you need a headset that's known for its comfort and style. Free up your hands without getting fatigued wearing the LG Tone Pro Bluetooth Stereo Headset. You can stay on top of your work, catch up with friends on the drive home and even make calls while performing a variety of tasks, such as cooking dinner.
This headset offers Around-The-Neck Wearing Style with Body-Contoured Fit for ultimate comfort, and the music and call controls are conveniently located on the sides of the device. Experience full, rich and authentic sound with the enhanced bass response and features such as HD Voice.
So no matter what tasks you need to accomplish while staying connected, there’s a Bluetooth headset that’s bound to make your life a little easier.
