Wireless headphones

Numerous accessories have been produced by manufacturers to further enhance the experience of using the cellular phone. Some of it was made for aesthetics purposes but most accessories are made to further enhance the phone's capability. One of the most important peripheral for the phone is the headset. It allows hands free operation of the phone where the user needs to use both hands for something else like driving. The headset includes an earpiece to hear all incoming voice calls and a microphone that the user can speak into. A button is affixed in the headset to act as the receive button whenever a call is being done. The user can freely control the voice call operation from the headset via this button. With the introduction of new phones with numerous options for data connections, the wireless headset was released. Without the wires, the headset gives the user the liberty to move anywhere he wishes to. The only limitation with the wireless headset is that you need to keep it close to the cellular phone for it to work well. Check the documentation that comes in with wireless headset to see how far from the unit must the headset be in order to maintain the connection. Same with the wired version, there are special buttons in the unit for specific operations like receiving and ending a voice call. It also gives the user an audio alert for sms, mms and other data calls.

The most common connection used by wireless headset is Bluetooth. Not only it is used for data transfer, but audio streaming is also possible with this technology. Phone manufacturers and even third party developers have released their different versions of the Bluetooth headset. Jabra, one of the world's largest third party manufacturers of wireless communication tools, has a very good lineup of Bluetooth headsets which are compatible with major brands such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorolla. Designed to be lightweight, users will hardly feel that they are wearing the unit. Here are some things to consider when choosing a wireless headset. The design of the headset actually affects its overall performance. Look for the position of the microphone and how far it is from your mouth. The clarity of outgoing calls is affected by this. Also consider weight and comfort. Remember that the wireless headset will always be heavier than the wired one because it includes independent controls and power source.
