Bluetooth headsets are mostly associated - literally, in fact - with cellphones, but there are plenty of people looking to go wireless with their computers for VoIP. Plantronics' Voyager PRO UC looks like a regular headset but is designed to pair not only with your phone but your computer via a bundled USB dongle, and to maintain those connections simultaneously. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
Most of the Bluetooth headsets we see hit the market are very similar in design and style. They all tend to be black devices with designs leaning more to usability than how they look. Some users want a headset that looks good and suits their personality.
It's been a while since we've heard from BlueAnt, but the Bluetooth headset company are back with their latest headset. They reckon the BlueAnt T1 is not only rugged but provides the best wind noise reduction you'll find on the market; that's also paired with text-to-speech with voice control and A2DP compatibility for (mono) streaming of audio and GPS directions.
Aliph's last premium Bluetooth headset, the Jawbone PRIME, hit the market back in April 2009 with a mixture of decent sound quality and distinctive looks, and quickly grabbed a place as our favorite mainstream hands-free kit. Now the company is back with a new, smaller version, the Aliph Jawbone ICON; check out our review after the cut.
There are gobs of Bluetooth headsets for drivers and there are more than a few for motorcyclists as well. For some reason talking on the phone while riding a motorcycle seems more dangerous to me than driving and talking. BlueAnt has announced a new Bluetooth headset called the Stereo F4 interphone motorcycle kit.
One of the best things that a company can do to make customers happy is to add new features to the products that we own via firmware updates. To really make us happy those firmware updates should be free. BlueAnt has made us really happy with a new firmware update for its slick Q1 Bluetooth headset.
Bluetooth headsets are generally dull, but slap a "spy!" label on them and they become instantly appealing. Well, maybe not instantly, but when you're looking at a headset that fits invisibly into your ear canal then we're pretty darned impressed; BrickHouseSecurity are offering the covert earpiece, which promises to make you look even crazier as you apparently argue with yourself while walking down the road.

Up until now, choosing a Bluetooth headset has demanded you pick between outright style and audio performance. Devices like the Plantronics Discovery 975 and the Jawbone PRIME have gone some way in disguising their boom microphones and preserving sound quality, but there's still no mistaking that you're wearing a Bluetooth headset. Into the fray steps the Jabra Stone, distinctive both for its curvaceous styling and its promises of boomless natural-sounding audio. Is your next Bluetooth headset a Stone's throw away? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
