What all best bluetooth headsets have in common?

Updated on March 13, 2012

Plantronics Voyager 510

If you're like me and every penny is needed than you always choose the best price/performance ratio product you can afford. In this case is best to know what to look for in a product if you intend to buy one.

Research is very important in this case and thank God the Internet provides us with everything we need in order to choose wisely.

In this hub I intend to teach you what to look for when choosing the best bluetooth headset on market without breaking your wallet.

Things to search for on a bluetooth headset

General size: it should always match your ear profile, so pick up a bluetooth headset that matches your body, so you might be better off with one of these huge bluetooth headsets that make you look like a telemarketer. And don't despair, as in this case probably the microphone will be able to pick up your voice perfectly

Left or right ear use: think of what you need and then decide what format to look for. Some headsets come with the ability to work on both left and right ears, but as with many ambidextrous designs (think of an office mouse), you won't be satisfied, so pick one with an ergonomic shape.

Weight: think how long will you be using daily the bluetooth headset. If you're wearing if for longer periods then it's best to get a low weight one. Protect your ears by getting a smaller bluetooth headset. You won't regret it if you work a lot on the road and use your wireless headset daily. Spending an extra dollar or two won't seem as a bad idea, you'll see.

Compatibility: verify that it's compatible with your current cell phone and other gadgets you're planning to pair it with. Probably there won't be any problems here anyway, but you have to check especially if you spend close to a few dozen dollars for a bluetooth wireless headset.

Additional buttons: it's always best to be able to play music, pause, skip, fast forward, redial, voice dial and such things are only possible via integrated buttons. Make sure there aren't too many buttons so you won't get overwhelmed when trying to answer/reject a call, or switch between callers.
