Aiaiai Capital Headphone review

on Monday, November 12th, 2012

A while back, I reviewed Aiaiai’s TMA-1 headphones, which I quite liked because they sounded really good, were very comfortable and were built to take abuse. After all, they were designed to be DJ headphones. But at $200, they were not cheap. Then came the $80 Tracks portable headphones. These were even more comfortable, but didn’t Read More…

VXi BlueParrott Xpress Bluetooth Noise-Canceling Wireless Headset Review

on Thursday, July 5th, 2012

For years I have been a Bluetooth headset evangelist.  I have reviewed many Bluetooth headsets for The Gadgeteer (see related links for some of my reviews).  I have long since gotten over any self-conscious feelings about looking like an employee in the McDonald’s drive-thru, and I have embraced my inner, and outer, geekness.  Then along Read More…

AntLion Audio ModMic Detachable Boom Microphone Review

on Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Can’t find a headset/mic combination you like?  Do you have a favorite pair of headphones but no mic?  Wouldn’t it be great to just add a microphone to your own headphones anytime you like?  You may remember my own attempts at using a hot glue gun to attach a microphone to my own comfy headphones… Read More…

Jabra Extreme Bluetooth Headset Review

on Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

I recently reviewed the Jabra Wave Bluetooth headset, which I totally love.  But before that, Jabra had sent me the Jabra Extreme by accident.  The Jabra Extreme has great features and works just as well as the Jabra Wave.  Let’s give it a look, too.

PureGear PureBeats Premium In-Ear Headset Review

By: Jeff Hollaway
on Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Whenever I am reviewing headsets, I am always looking for thought in the design as well as function and comfort. PureGear’s PureBeats certainly has a fresh look.  But do they deliver quality sound or are they just another cheap in-ear headset that is over priced?

Clean, neat, and functional. What more would you want in a Bluetooth earpiece?

Eco Sound Bluetooth Headset Review

on Thursday, April 14th, 2011
Posted in: Bluetooth Gear, Reviews

I’ve tried Bluetooth headsets before. Some I’ve liked, and some I’ve lost. Often, the same one met both fates. I quit buying them because they are usually fairly expensive to replace. Enter the EcoSound Bluetooth Headset from WirelessGround which is selling this headset for less than $10. This is insane for a Bluetooth headset! Must Read More…

Posted in: Bluetooth Gear, News

Jawbone has just launched the first Bluetooth headset with a built in accelerometer that enables the wearer to shake the headset to initiate pairing with a mobile phone, and tap tap the headset to answer or end a call. In addition to the new motion sensing technology, the Jawbone ERA also has a 25% larger Read More…

MEElectronics M9P Hi-Fi Sound-Isolating In-Ear Headphones with Microphone Review

on Saturday, January 15th, 2011

I’m one of those people who have ears that just don’t work with the Apple earbud headsets. I really prefer the in-ear style, which is why I was eager to review the MEElectronics M9Ps. They’re priced just above the bulk earbud prices, have an interesting style, and looked like they’d be a good solution for Read More…

Logitech H760 Wireless USB Headset Review

on Thursday, November 4th, 2010

If you much prefer the over-the-head type of headset, skip this review.  I’m one of those people.  I wear glasses and I never found the behind-the-ear style compelling enough to try.  But try I did.

Sound ID 510 Bluetooth Headset Review

By: Andy Simmons
on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

There comes a point in the life of any given technology where it has matured enough that the quality of the basic features starts to plateau, and new entries into the market necessarily rely on style or unique features.  Bluetooth headsets have started to reach this plateau, with each being able to provide — at Read More…

Sound ID 510 – iPhone App Controlled Bluetooth Headset

on Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

The new Sound ID 510 Bluetooth headset performs like most headsets except for one unique feature – it can be controlled by an iPhone app. When using the Sound ID 510, an iPhone and the free EarPrint App, you can do sound preference tuning while on a call by moving your finger over the face Read More…

Plantronics .Audio 476 DSP USB Headset Review

on Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

When it comes to headsets, I’m really picky.  In 2004 when I started playing on-line co-op games with my younger brothers in-law, I shopped around for various stereo headsets with microphones for gaming.  They were all either too uncomfortable, or had poor outgoing audio.  Eventually, I took drastic measures and made my own, and I’ve Read More…

SmallTalk Mini Bluetooth Headset Review

on Wednesday, April 28th, 2010
Posted in: Bluetooth Gear, Reviews

Since Bluetooth was developed way back in 1994, its specifications have changed dramatically, and so have the devices that utilize it. However, in my opinion, the vast majority of people who use mobile phones still prefer not to use Bluetooth headsets, even though their ease is quite straight forward.  People that I’ve spoken too in the past have always Read More…

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is the company’s newest reasonably priced bluetooth headset.  Now before I go any further, to put this review into full perspective, I’m also the Moderator at HowardForums for all things Bluetooth.  I sadly own more headsets that I have holes in my head, and every new headset that comes out gets Read More…

The BlueKlip is a simple accessory that sticks on your car’s dash, your mobile phone’s case or any other handy location. Its purpose is to hold your Bluetooth headset when you’re not using it. The$6.99 price seems pretty reasonable considering you get 2.

on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010
Posted in: Bluetooth Gear, Reviews

The Plantronics Voyager Pro UC raises the bar for Bluetooth headsets and is well-deserved for all the accolades that it has received.  If you have been a Bluetooth headset user from the dawn of Bluetooth as I have, you’ll quickly realize that with the Plantronics Voyager Pro UC, this ain’t your daddy’s Bluetooth!

Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset Review

on Wednesday, December 9th, 2009
Posted in: Reviews, Wireless

I reviewed the Plantronics Discovery 925 last year and loved its stylish look, great fit, and superior performance. I have been using it regularly ever since. So, the day Plantronics released the, as some say, even more fashionable Discovery 975, I emailed Julie asking if I could review their latest bluetooth headset.

iPhone case that holds a folded Bluetooth headset – MoGo Talk

on Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Remember the MoGo Mouse from Newton Peripherals? It was a Bluetooth mouse that could fit entirely into a PC Card slot. Now the same company has just announced the release of a series of Bluetooth headsets that are stored and recharged within plastic cases for cellular handsets. They remind me of the LG Decoy phone.

Sony Ericsson Stereo Bluetooth HBH-IS800 Headset Review

Like many people, I own quite a few headphones.  These days all handheld devices we purchase come with a free corded headphone which most of the time are of crappy sound quality.   But what if I want great quality sound but without the mess of a snaking cable dangling down to my Bluetooth enabled media Read More…

Aliph Jawbone Prime and Earcandy Edition Review

By: Andy Simmons
on Monday, November 2nd, 2009
Posted in: Wireless

For a long time, I flatly refused to own a Bluetooth headset. They were expensive, the sound quality was mediocre, and the available designs were unattractive, ranging from “wannabe telemarketer” to “hey, I’ve got a Happy Meal toy stuck in my ear!” But for every product category, a standout product always emerges and becomes the Read More…

I know what a lot of you are thinking… “oh great, another Bluetooth ear piece. And I have to be honest, I thought the same thing when I saw this. Boy was I wrong! First of all, it is an actual Research In Motion Blackberry branded device, not some third party off brand. RIM is Read More…

Posted in: News, Wireless

The iTech Dynamic SolarVoice 908 Bluetooth headset has all the typical features one would expect from a headset. It has A2DP, multipoint, and noise reduction features. But, it has one feature that no other headsets have (yet)… It has a built in solar panel that will allow you to recharge its batteries via sunlight. Pretty Read More…
