Smartphones are becoming more and more prevalent, and so are
state laws banning handheld cell phones in cars. That’s where Bluetooth
headsets come in. These hands-free mobile companions allow you to carry
out a safer conversation while driving, or any other time you need to
keep both hands free. And Bluetooth headsets are better than ever, with
improved designs, stronger performance, better battery life, and more
compelling features than you’d find just a couple of years ago. Since
there isn’t much of an opportunity to try before you buy, it’s important
to pay attention to reviews and understand what factors matter most to
you in a Bluetooth headset before buying.
Some features to consider in a headset: call quality, noise
cancellation, battery life, style and design, comfort, range, bonus
features, mono vs. stereo sound, and price. Our list below is comprised
of headsets that excel in all of these areas.
We broke it down into sections, since Bluetooth headsets primarily
fall into three major categories. There are the traditional, mono,
single-ear headsets; these are the ones that most people think about
when they hear the word Bluetooth. Then there are stereo headsets, which
use both of your ears; these are good if you’re want to make calls, but
they also double as earphones or headphones for listening to music in
stereo. Finally, there are speakerphones, which don’t connect to your
ear, but instead project voices so you can hear without a device
attached to your head.
Our top 10 highest-rated headsets below span all three categories.
The first thing you’ll need to figure out is which type works best for
your needs, then go from there. But rest assured, each one will serve
you well for its intended purpose: Freeing your hands while you’re on
