Many of us are no big fans of cords. They tend to clutter up everywhere and this why wireless devices are so useful. When it comes to wired headsets, some of us are not able to take very good care of these toys because the wires get tangled and before you know it, wires begin to rip apart and only a single speaker works. The best way to combat this problem is to use Bluetooth headsets. They might not be able to compare with some of the top-of-the-line wired headsets when it comes to sound quality, but some of them do a pretty fine job.
To help you get around all the problems of seeking out a good Bluetooth headset, we're going to list our top 5 Stereo Bluetooth headsets for all you music junkies and whatever else you do with a wireless headset, we probably don't want to know.
1. Motorola MotoRokr S305
Motorola is known for making great accessories, and the MotoRokr S305 is no exception. This is one of the best Bluetooth headset devices out there. It has reliable sound quality and the price is very attractive at around $40. We also like the comfortable earpad, not many Bluetooth headset device is able to pull off a comfortable earpad so small. The main problem users may come across is the not so easy to access controls, but then again, most Bluetooth headsets tend to have this problem.
2. Nokia BH-905i
We love Nokia, we love this Bluetooth headset from the Finnish giant, but we don't love the price. Take it from us, the Nokia BH-905i is a beast with so many features its crazy. Hate background noise? This beast of a headset packs 8 microphones for canceling background noise, which helps to provide high quality music enjoyment. Some Bluetooth headsets have problems when it comes to voice call, the other party tends to have problems hearing what the user is saying. But you won't have that problem with the Nokia BH-905i. There are two microphones for capturing speech; this enables clear communication between the user and the person on the other end.
Along with all those cool features, the device can also act as a wired headset, which is not what we are after but it could come in handy.
3. Platronics BackBeat 903+
We reviewed this headset a while back; it is one of the best Bluetooth stereo headsets out there. The design is the first thing that will catch your attention, especially how Platronics designed the in earbuds which really doesn't go all the way in. That's not a problem however, because the device is so loud, you would go deaf with this all the way in and the volume all the way up. There's a bass booster, but we wouldn't recommend using it as it will tarnish the quality of the music playback, it's just far from useful.
Like the MotoRokr, the music controls are not easily accessible, but like we said, such is the case for most Bluetooth headsets.
4. Jabra Halo
When it comes to Bluetooth headsets, Jabra is one of the leading brands, and for a good reason. The Jabra Halo is no pushover Bluetooth headset. It can more than hold its own among the best and with its sleek design, this beauty will draw stares for all the right reasons. When it comes to music quality, the Halo works wonderfully. However, voice calls are not up to par. So if you want a Bluetooth Stereo headset to make voice calls, Jabra Halo won't do you any good.
Finally, music and volume controls as we've mentioned above for others, is not placed well enough for easy access.
5. LG HBS-700
This is one of our favorite Bluetooth Stereo headsets that we can't eyes off it. Like the Platronics BackBeat 903+, the first thing you will notice when you see this device for the very first time is its design. The whole thing is very unusual looking. Despite that, we love the design and the features it brings. LG really did a great job with the HBS-700. When the earbuds are removed from the ear, they are then attached to the orange pockets at each end via magnet; this is quite slick and unique.
Sound quality here is good, but the bass leaves much to be desired which is very disappointing, considering the $70 cost of this thing.
