Bluetooth headsets aren’t for everyone, but they are essential for many multitaskers who need reliable audio while focusing on different tasks. They allow drivers to talk hands free and give busy people more freedom to move around — making day-to-day life easier, safer and more productive. And these products differ from Bluetooth earbuds, which are designed like traditional headphones. Bluetooth headsets are built for talking and listening. They’re essential for making calls but can also double as headphones in a pinch, making business seamless, smooth and safe.
Here are 4 Bluetooth headsets and the features that set them apart:
The LG Tone Active has a cozy around-the-neck design and the retractable earbuds are cushioned for extra comfort. It’s sweat and water-resistant, for those who need to make calls at the gym or at muggy worksites. And users won’t have to live in constant fear of low battery warning — they have 13 hours of talk time on a full charge.
The Voyager is all about clear sound. It’s equipped with three microphones to help eliminate background noise, wind and unwanted distractions — from high-traffic areas to construction zones. it sports audio caller ID, which allows users to turn down calls audibly. And though it’s not ready for scuba diving it’s designed to handle sweat on the jobsite, the occasional spill and a surprise downpour.
Think of the M70 as a command center in your ear. It allows users to listen to directions, make calls and control music. Calls are automatically answered when the headset is placed on the ear. The battery is powered with 11 hours of talk time, but it’ll also notify users when the battery is low with a whisper. And for those who are juggling between phones, the M70 can be paired with two devices.
Jabra’s dual microphones and Advanced Blackout Noise technology help reduce unwanted background noise. The Storm offers 10 hours of talk time and promises clear calls, even on windy days. It can be paired with up to 8 devices and offers simple and effective talk prompts, like “answer call” or “reject call.” The lightweight headset fits comfortably behind the ear for those who need to take long calls or wear the headset all day.
