Top 8 Bluetooth Headsets iPhone

Everything about smartphones these days is hands free, from taking calls to checking emails and searching for things online. Voice activated software such as Siri means that you can easily check on stuff without lifting a finger, which is absolutely ideal when you are busy doing stuff. Driving, for example: so many of the auto accidents caused in the last year were related to drivers using their cellphone when driving, which is just about the most irresponsible thing you can do at the wheel of a car besides drinking alcohol before doing so. There is a burgeoning industry and market for Bluetooth headsets that embrace the idea of wearable tech, and allow you to do things like drive while keeping in touch with people for work. It never used to be the case, but finally we are getting to a point were these headsets are no longer intrusive. We tested out a bunch while researching for this particular list, and some products are so lightweight and subtle that you forget you are actually wearing them. Without further ado, here are our top Bluetooth headsets currently available for the iPhone.

8. Abco Tech Headset ($19.97)

The Abco Tech is definitely one of the more affordable Bluetooth headsets out there for iPhone users, but does it stand up to the competition. Well, I’d say after using this one for a day or so that the answer is a definitive YES. The Abco Tech does tend to stand out from the pack, rather than lag behind it. I love the way that it automatically wakes up, connects and answers at the sound of any incoming call. This is great for a number of reasons: first, that it sleeps in order to conserve battery power, and second that it connects and answers automatically, leaving your hands completel free to do other stuff such as driving or working. The magnetic charging dock also triggers this Sleep/Wake mode, and ensures that you are never out of battery for that important hands free call. – Buy from Amazon

7. HAVIT HV-H913BT ($23.79)

HAVIT offer a lot of different models of Bluetooth headset, but this one seems to stand out as one of the more popular, which is why we chose to try it. It’s actually simply down to time, but we weren’t able to try out any other of the HAVIT products, and kind of regret not having the time to do that since this one is so great. It’s an excellent affordable option if you aren’t willing to spent upwards of $50 on a headset, and contains DSP technology and Clear Voice Capture so as to get rid of outside noise and make sure your conversation is as clear as possible. The dock can be carried around to charge up the headset, and even when in sleep mode, it will wake up and connect and answer the call, which leaves your hands free for everything else! – Buy from Amazon

6. Plantronics M165 ($28.62)

The Plantronics M165, also known as the Marque 2, is one of a range of useful Bluetooth headsets produced by this particular company. We decided to pick the best one for this, but there is also the M55 that is worth checking out. It’s a great option, particularly if you’re on some kind of budget and are not too bothered about all the features that some headsets offer. The Marque 2 has about 7 hours of call time in its battery, which does pale in comparison to some but is good enough if you just use it to and from work in the car or whatever. – Buy from Amazon

5. Jawbone ERA ($64.00)

Out of all the ones we tried, the Jawbone ERA might be the smallest and subtlest Bluetooth headset of the lot! It really is tiny, and is perfect for those who would rather limit the size and weight of the device they are wearing. It fits snugly inside your ear, and isn’t the kind of headset that you have to constantly push away from your face, like someone swatting away some annoying insect. Like other headsets, this has built in technology (creatively known as NoiseAssassin) to detect vibrations in your skin and work out which noise is part of your conversation, then cancel out all the rest. – Buy from Amazon

4. Mpow Knight Pro ($29.99)

The Mpow Knight Pro is one of the slickets looking Bluetooth headsets out there for the iPhone, and is considered by many to be a step above the competition. The dock is small and you can easily clip it just about anywhere, to the edge of your monitor or on your car dashboard, and allows you to turn sleep mode on and charge the thing up on the go. The mic is noise cancelling, built with the latest CSR intelligent noise reduction chip, meaning that calls are clearer than they have ever been before. And as with others, this one allows you to pair up to two different devices at once, and even supports the use of SIRI voice commands. It’s slicker than other headsets, and also costs a lot less! – Buy from Amazon

3. Jabra WAVE ($69.99)

Jabra are great when it comes to sound quality, and their headsets definitely maintain this. As with many of these developers, Jabra have so many different models out there that it’s difficult to know which one is right for you. If that’s the case, I’d suggest picking the best one – even if at $65 this is one of the more expensive options out there currently. The Jabra WAVE is particularly great when it comes to muting all that annoying background noise, whether you are in a classroom or office or driving down the freeway. The DSP technology means that the sound quality is crystal clear, and you can connect up to 2 devices via Bluetooth and then switch between them. So if you have one cellphone for work and one for home, you don’t have to mess around pairing them each time! – Buy from Amazon

2. Jawbone ICON HD ($74.99)

The Jawbone ICON HD is another very small offering from the same line as the ERA mentioned above. These are the smallest and most subtle of the headsets you will find on the market these days, and are pretty much designed for comfort and weightlessness. If you’re not convinved on this one, the ERA is almost as good! – Buy from Amazon

1. JETech H0781 ($22.99)

As with many of the other Bluetooth headsets mentioned so far, the JETech H0781 uses Multipoint technology which bascially means that it can connect to two Bluetooth devices at once. This is great for those with multiple cellphones, or perhaps if you have an iPhone for calling and an iPad for voice calls over Skype or Viber. There is a built in noise cancelling mic that will cut out all background noise, which means you needn’t worry if you are in the middle of a shopping mall and weighed down with bags, or on a packed freeway surrounded by honking car horns. The LED light conveniently hints at the battery life left, and there is not only a sleep mode to conserve this power but also a DeepSleep mode that basically extends the life of the thing by 14 days or so. – Buy from Amazon
