VXi BlueParrott Xpress Bluetooth Noise-Canceling Wireless Headset Review

vxi xpress 1 big

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 …

antlion modmic 08

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… …

Eco Sound Bluetooth Headset Review

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

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 …

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

meelectronics m9p review 01

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 …

IMG 0332

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 …

Plantronics .Audio 476 DSP USB Headset Review

plantronics 476 01a

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 …

SmallTalk Mini Bluetooth Headset Review

SmallTalk Mini Review1

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 …
