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 […]
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 […]
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… […]
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.
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?
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 […]
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 […]
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.
The new M100 Bluetooth headset from Plantronics features dual micrphones for better wind noise reduction, auto volume adjustment and several color choices, in an ultra slim design. It also has an actual sliding on/off button so you will easily know if the headset is powered up and ready for use. It’s available now for $79.99
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Including their signature high-quality audio and is designed for the new or casual BT headset user, the new Plantronics Explorer 395 universally compatible Bluetooth headset is attractively styled and easy to use with separate buttons for volume, power on/off, and call answer/end. It’s reasonably priced at $49.95.
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.
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!
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.
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 […]
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 […]
We reviewed the Plantronics Voyager PRO Bluetooth headset back in July. Now Plantronics has just announced a new model called the PRO UC. This headset that works seamlessly with both mobile phones and unified communication applications/softphones like Google Talk and Skype. It comes with a USB dongle to use with your PC and works like […]
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 […]
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 […]
