A great many Bluetooth headsets are on the market, so it can be difficult to decide which one to purchase. Popular models combine style and functionality with comfort over long periods of time, which is crucial in the design of a device that fits around your ear. A few models stand out from the crowd.
Jabra FreeSpeak BT250
The Jabra FreeSpeak is rated as one of the most comfortable boom-style Bluetooth headsets around. It has a unique, behind-the-ear, rotating design that fits snugly against the shape of the ear and remains in place even as you move your head.
Logitech Mobile Freedom
The Mobile Freedom headset has a slightly different design to most on the market but achieves a very comfortable fit. The earpiece is padded and flexible. This headset feels light, secure and inconspicuous.
Aliph Jawbone Icon
The Aliph Jawbone Icon is a high-end, designer headset that is comfortable, compact and highly reviewed. Released in early 2010, the Jawbone Icon is a step forward from its predecessor, with hidden flashing lights, a comfort-enhancing ear loop and different-sized earbuds to fit all ears comfortably. Incoming sounds are attenuated to reduce unwanted noise.
The Motorola Oasis, released in October 2010, is an elegant gadget with exceptional wind and external noise cancellation. It features customizable ear cushions, an easy-swivel boom-mic and interchangeable ear gels to fit any ear.
Altec Lansing BackBeat 903
Designed for joggers and drivers, this is a comfortable, stereo, wireless headset with an emphasis on reduced weight at only 34 grams.
Plantronics Voyager Pro
The Plantronics Voyager Pro is even lighter at 17.5 grams. It is a behind-the-ear design with noise- and echo-canceling microphones. Its wind reduction technology features a specialized “vent” fabric that makes it more comfortable to wear and potentially less damaging to your ears.
