Headset

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 [...]

The new Sound ID 400 Bluetooth Headset offers some features that no other headset current offers: PersonalSound - offers users 3 listening modes, tuned to the most common hearing preferences, to choose from in order to further enhance speech clarity without raising the volume. Environmental Mode - enables users to hear equally out of both [...]

Voyager 01

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 [...]

One of my main complaints about most Bluetooth headsets are the buttons that you use to control them. Fumbling around with your fingers trying to find the location of the button to answer a call or change the volume can be a pain - literally. Have you ever pressed a button on a headset and [...]

I have been riding motorcycles for over two decades; nearly twice as long as I have been a true tech-junkie. While I love putting around on my bike, I have always wanted to ride with music playing. I have attempted to make this happen many times over the years but nothing I have tried was [...]

bluetooth_retro_handset_new

Throughout my career I have focused upon features,  benefits and the value proposition to recommend tech products to my customers.  The ThinkGeek Bluetooth Retro Handset from  is a device that has limited features, very few benefits and is not cost effective,  BUT I like it anyway.  If you're curious how I came to this conclusion, [...]

iVoice sent a Baby-ai headset along with their R1 car kit. I've used a couple of different bluetooth headsets in the past and haven't been too impressed with them. I have small ears and wear glasses, so I've had a hard time finding a headset that would stay on my ear securely while walking around [...]

zivio-boom-1

I remember first seeing the Zivio Boom Bluetooth wireless headset at the 2008 Macworld Expo and thinking that it looked pretty sexy, but I wasn't sure about the practicality of the telescoping boom microphone. It's now one year later and they've sent me one to review. Let's take a closer look. Bluetooth Version 2.1 + [...]

Callpod has recently updated its uniquely shaped, ultra powerful bluetooth headset, the Dragon v2. While the shape, function, and battery life have remained more or less the same, Callpod has improved incoming and outgoing call quality, redesigned the earbud, and upgraded the earhook to a pivoting, more comfortable design.

I have not done a bluetooth headset review for a while now. It was my own fault, I had reviewed too many earpieces in a relatively short amount of time. The tech-rush was definitely gone..... That being said, the Plantronics Discovery 925's sleek & slim form factor drew me out of my bluetooth earpiece hiatus.

We can all agree that gadgets can be fun and exciting, but it's really great when a product can actually help someone work better while also being beneficial to your health. A couple months ago, a close family member was having severe neck and shoulder pain. Her one arm was even going numb. An MRI revealed that she had a ruptured disk in her neck. The solution was a surgical procedure to fuse the C5 and C6 vertebrae together with a titanium plate and several screws...

Aliph has recently updated their very popular noise reducing Jawbone headset with a newer version that addresses some of the complaints from the original. One of the main complaints was with size. I didn't find the size to be much of a problem when I reviewed the original, but let's see just how much this new version has improved things.

Seems like the number of Bluetooth devices increases weekly. BlueAnt
has created several noteworthy additions to the mix. The Z9
earpiece and Supertooth
Light
handsfree carkit are well designed and thought out. They are both simple, easy
to use, and produce a very nice call/conversation experience.

I have reviewed several bluetooth headsets over the past year (and used many others as well), including those by Apple, Southwest, Motorola, and Jabra. All of which had their pluses and minuses. The S-800 by Cardo has, by far, the most functions and capabilities of any bluetooth headset I have ever used.

As of July 1st, Washington State is mandating the use of hands-free devices
while driving. This law makes it illegal to have a cellphone up to your ear
while driving a vehicle. So Bluetooth cellphone accessories are becoming more
and more the rage (when little old ladies are wearing them at the shopping mall,
you know a technology has left geekdom and hit the mainstream). Southwing
has created several in-the-ear and hands-free speakerphone car kit options enabling
you to focus on driving while talking on your cellphone. In this article I will
be reviewing one of each type by Southwing, the SH505
Bluetooth headset
and the SC310
Bluetooth car kit
.

In today’s world, it seems that we are all trying to do three things at once, all while talking on our cell phones. I know that multi-tasking is part of my daily life, even though at times I wish it was not. Juggling multiple tasks at once is fine, except when one of those tasks is potential deadly if you are not paying attention, for example, driving a vehicle.

Some states, like California have even adopted laws against using a cell phone without a handsfree device. The Mvox Duo is an apparatus that allows users to communicate without holding their phones. Look ma’, no hands.

I have used many bluetooth headsets over the years; Motorola, Samsung, Plantronics to name a few. None of them have qualified as truly tech-worthy. They either did not fit my ear, the connection quality was poor, or operating the device was painful. One was actually so bad I had to decline finishing a review because I didn't have a single positive comment. All that being said, I have finally found bluetooth headset Zen.

I don’t know about you, but it seems that multi-tasking is becoming more important with each passing day. This is no truer, then in our professional environments where it seems that we are trying to do so much in so little time.

Plantronics is one of the most active communication products manufacturers in the market today. One of their latest Bluetooth headsets is the Voyager 520. They were kind enough to send one to me to review. Let's take a look.

Cardo Systems Inc. have long been known for their popular Scala line of Bluetooth headsets. I've reviewed both the scala-500 and scala-700 models and found them to be very capable. When the folks at Cardo contacted me about their S-2 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones, I was excited to try them as I'm always on the look out for a really good pair of wireless headphones.

What's better than listening to music on your iPod? How about listening to that music without the annoyance of earbud wires getting in your way? Or even better, how about listening to your iPod and having the music automatically pause whenever you get a call on your mobile phone so that you can answer the call without removing your headphones? Wi-Gear's iMuff Wireless Headphones will give you both of these features for iPods (and iPhones) that have a universal dock connector.

Mobile phones aren't just for placing calls these days. They have become full blown digital audio players for a lot of people. Heck, the advertising for the LG Chocolate phones is pretty much based on that very feature alone. Altec Lansing's T515 portable wireless speaker system is now available for those of you with mobile phones that have Bluetooth (it must have the A2DP profile though...) and music playing capabilities.
