Best Bluetooth Headset

Article Contents

When it comes to Bluetooth headsets, fans of hands-free mobile or VOIP (voice over internet protocol) have a lot of choices. They range from headsets priced at well over $100 to much more affordable choices for $20 or $30. But like many things in life, a $130 headset doesn't always mean it's better than a cheaper headset and a cheap headset may cause more problems than its worth. Whether your needs are a headset that can be used by your laptop and your mobile device, or a headset that allows you to carry on a clear conversation, there's a Bluetooth headset for you.

What we have here are five of the best designs offered today, each with some form of noise cancellation technology to ensure maximum call quality no matter where you are.
