lol, I have bought a half dozen Bluetooth headsets. I keep thinkin it would be nice in certain situations. Every one of them are stuffed in a drawer somewhere, lol. I charge it up, use it for a couple days then keep forgetting to charge it and it ends up disappearing somewhere. I am too forgetful to own a bluetoothI got one that plugs into my phone because I dont want to mess with charging the headset all the time.
I've been using that one for a couple of years. I really like it. I only use it in the vehicle. I found a 12 volt charger for it so I don't have to worry about keeping it charged all the time.But I am getting this Plantronics one this weekend...
So what bluetooth headset do you recommend?We sell a lot of bluetooth. We sell some that are anywhere from 29 bucks on up. The 29 version is pretty cool because it runs off of quad-A batteries so no recharging, just replace the battery. The quality isn't too bad either.
We seel some top end units with noise cancelling but from experiance I can say they only moderatly help driving a topless or doorless or even just the windows down on a vehicle.
I am thinking of moving back to a boom mic as those always seem to work best whether wired or bluetooth.
We just started carrying BlueAnt. Quality seems to be there but too soon to speak about over all useablility.
The Plantronics with the mini-boom is nice. I can wear those over the ear units all day as opposed to theose that stick in your ear as they irrated me after 8 hours or so. The mini-boom is a step in the right direction.
I may end up going back to non-bluetooth just to get a nice lightweight full boom headset.
Sadly you will have to get used to it. It is only a matter of time before the US is like California and the European nations where hands free is required or you get tickets, fines or ??? The alternative of course is to not talk on the cell phone while driving. :grinpimp:X2 :shaking:
For the customers that come into our stores, I suggest comfort as the first priority in choosing a headset. Everything else I can recommend by asking questions and seeing where it is they will use the headset.So what bluetooth headset do you recommend?
That is quite the PC answer. I guess you don't want to upset any of your suppliers who might be lurkingFor the customers that come into our stores, I suggest comfort as the first priority in choosing a headset. Everything else I can recommend by asking questions and seeing where it is they will use the headset.
In my experiance I haven't found any one particular unit head and shoulders more better than any other. At least not enough of a difference to say this is the one. Go for comfort that works best for you then you will actually wear the headset.
I have to agree...I admit, I see red when I see some scrote on the cell phone, slowly creeping up on your rear bumper at a stop 'cause he/she is totally NOT in control of his vehicle...same on the highway...the cut into the passing lane, and never pass the car in the slow lane 'cause they're on the freaking phone...I like the hands free device incase I have to answer a call so as to not be fumbling around for the phone...otherwise, cell phones are a nightmare on the road.I use bluetooth when I eat a blue popsicle or hard candy. As far as cell phones go I miss the good old days when people called each other (or maybe dropped by) to talk when they actually had something to say. All this cell phone use is getting annoying especially when the folks calling (or being called) have nothing better to say than What's up?, What you doing?, Where you at? I mean come on folks if I had wanted you to know what I was doing I would have called you (or dropped by) before hand and invited you to go with me. We have cut our cell phone useage to ONE phone and it gets turned off half the time. We do not miss any importiant calls because we do have voice mail on the home phone and it's funny how we have gotten less and less I'm bored let me call you and bug you calls.
That said more power to you who actually need them for work but the rest of you non-stop talkers need to get a grip on life and think real hard about why you need this stuff so you can talk to someone ALL the time.
