Headset

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 [...]

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. The Discovery 975 [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Celltronix VR1 looks like an ordinary headset, but it is the first Bluetooth headset that can record up to 8 minutes of incoming and outgoing calls. You can also use it to record voice memos. I'm not convinced that this product really solves a problem, but I suppose the voice memo feature could be [...]

I have used other Bluetooth headsets such as the Motorola H700(A/B) and found that many sound tinny or canned and can even  have an echo-y sound coming from the microphone and/or the earpiece from time to time.  I would rather just hold my phone to my ear until my arm got tired then struggle with [...]
