Bluetooth headsets let you talk on the phone hands-free and use voice commands. It’s a huge convenience if you’re constantly talking on the go.
Throw on a wireless headset and go about accomplishing your goals with a little less stress. But before you buy a pair, be sure you’re buying the headset that best suits you.
Here are four of the best Bluetooth headsets, along with features that set them apart:
The B350-XT features a signature Parrott Button™, which can be programmed from your smartphone via the Blue Parrott mobile app, and then used to set your headset to mute, speed dial and more. Plus, a flexible gooseneck mic boom stays where you put it to ensure your calls and music come through loud and clear.
The Plantronics Voyager Legend has three microphones to help eliminate background noise so you sound clear in your noisy car, even through high-traffic areas and construction zones. You can even activate Siri or Google Now with the touch of a button on the headset.
Another great option that costs a little less, the Plantronics M70 will stay powered for up to 11 hours of talk time when it’s fully charged. The headset’s hibernation mode helps maximize battery life when it’s not being used, lasting up to 16 days. The universal fit eartip and optional earloop keep the headset comfortable and stable while you talk or listen to music.
A good middle-of-the-road option in terms of price, the Jabra Storm is super lightweight so it stays comfortable even when you wear it for hours. It also has a good battery that lasts for up to 10 hours when you’re making calls. It’s easy to pair with your devices and features Jabra’s “Noise Blackout” technology to help eliminate distractions from wind and other background noises.
