Once you've successfully chosen a good cell phone from the seemingly endless supply of cell phones, the choice of a headset can be just as overwhelming. To narrow down the choices, a Bluetooth headset may be the perfect option for those looking for a hands-free solution.Why?


Bluetooth headsets offer a convenient wireless connection between your Bluetooth headset and your Bluetooth-enabled phone. But before you pick up the first Bluetooth headset you see in stores, there are a few things you should know about the integration of Bluetooth technology in modern mobile headsets.


1. Bluetooth is considered the most misunderstood technology of the wireless era because many people are unfamiliar with how it works. However, technology experts estimate that by the end of 2007, more than 50 million Bluetooth devices will have been launched. 

2. Bluetooth technology works in a simple way. It allows two devices (e.g. headset and cell phone) to communicate with each other by sending data via low-cost, short-range radio waves. 

3. With Bluetooth technology, both devices do not need wires or cables; neither do they need to be in line of sight. The only requirement for this technology to work is that both the cell phone and the headset must be Bluetooth compatible.

4. Bluetooth technology does not cost a penny, beyond the initial investment with the cell phone and headset.

5. Bluetooth has a range of 10 meters and it is possible to make up to seven connections at a speed of 1 Mbps at a time.

6. There are several versions of Bluetooth, so consider your cell phone technology when choosing a headset. Make sure your two devices work together seamlessly. Most devices on the market work with Bluetooth 1.1, but Bluetooth 2.0 is now available with improvements in technology that allow for faster connection speeds and more devices.

7. Bluetooth headsets come in two styles: boom and non-boom models. The boom is an extended microphone designed to curve toward the mouth. Note that Bluetooth headsets with boom are typically bulkier than non-boom models. However, they are designed to rest behind your ears, giving you a more comfortable experience.

8. Today, boomless Bluetooth headsets have become more popular because they are compact and offer more design options. Some models of headphones are designed to fit directly in the ear, rather than resting on the ear. To make sure you're comfortable with a particular model, check out several styles to find the one that suits you best.

9. Some Bluetooth headsets available on the market have various functions, such as caller ID display. Even if your cell phone has caller ID, this feature is a great help when your phone is out of range. Just look at the headset's LCD screen to see who is on the line.

10. When you find a headset that is compatible with your phone, don't buy them all at once. Make sure you get the best sound quality when making and receiving a call. Say goodbye to all their impressive features if the sound quality suffers too much.


Choosing a Bluetooth headset from the endless supply of features and models can be an overwhelming task. However, as long as you understand how this technology works, which features are important and which models provide you with comfort, you can be sure to buy the best headset suitable for your cell phone.
