Do you spend most of your time talking on the phone at your desk in the office (or home) or pacing around? With many of us now working from home choosing a quality Bluetooth headset is crucial as it allows you to make and receive hands-free phone calls easily, no matter if you're in a car or at your desk.
Selecting the right Bluetooth headset depends not only on how it fits and feels but also the sound quality, design, style, and battery life.
Wireless headsets work by pairing or connecting with the device you want to use such as a phone or computer through a radio or infrared signal. Many devices use Bluetooth technology to make connecting easier for the user. Devices with Bluetooth technology can connect and exchange data over very short distances using radio transmissions.
Since Bluetooth is a standardized wireless specification, a high level of compatibility among devices is guaranteed.
Battery life is important for any Bluetooth headset. The frequency and short-range nature of the Bluetooth signal, however, requires very little power to operate. But, the signals low-power requirements also limit the range allowed between the headset and the paired device. However, Bluetooth technology is constantly evolving, increasing the distance between the connected devices to around 100m (Bluetooth V2.1) and 400m (Bluetooth V5 LE).
