More and more business people are looking for a Bluetooth headset with a microphone that can be used not only for business communication but also for casual listening.
If you're in the market for a new Bluetooth headset, there are a few things you should consider before venturing into the murky waters of Bluetooth headset shopping.
You want to make sure you get the right Bluetooth headset for you and your needs. With that in mind, here are some ideas for you to ponder when looking for the perfect Bluetooth earphones.
A cell phone? tablet? a computer? Landline? Multiple devices?
It's important to know what you're using your Bluetooth headset for or connecting it to.
Why? Because bluetooth headphones have different functions. Some are Bluetooth wireless only, while others may include a USB adapter so you can use it with your computer.
Now you might think that if your computer has Bluetooth enabled, you don't need a USB adapter to use it with your computer. It does, and yes, you can use most Bluetooth wireless headphones with a Bluetooth-enabled computer. Will it work? yes.
A Bluetooth headset connected to your computer via a USB adapter will give you greater wireless range than a Bluetooth headset connected via a Bluetooth wireless signal. So if having greater wireless range is important to you, then skip the idea of a wireless Bluetooth connection.
If good sound quality is important to you, give it up. The idea of connecting a Bluetooth headset to a Bluetooth-enabled computer via a wireless Bluetooth connection might not be ideal. In short, you'll get inconsistent sound quality, which isn't what anyone wants when making business calls.
Most people really appreciate the ability to leave their desk, knowing that if someone comes in while they're away, they can answer the phone. If you are connected via Bluetooth, remote call answering is not available.
Something to consider, especially if you consider the usefulness and popularity of the feature. With it, you can always access and never miss an important call. As an added bonus, you also don't have to listen to voice messages and get into the familiar phone tag game.
Connecting a Bluetooth headset to a computer is not always successful. In other words, you may have great intentions to make this connection, but the computer may think differently. Unrecognized devices come to mind.
The point is that you need to be clear about the device you plan to connect to, and then make sure that the Bluetooth headset you choose will not only connect to it, but connect to it in the way it offers to give you the best experience.
