Bluetooth Heaven

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Despite the fact that we embraced the technology few years later Europe and Japan. The cell phone has nearly become a ubiquitous device in America. Because I made the decision to go strictly cellular, I abandoned my landline phone early last year. Hence, I happen to spend more time on the cell phone than the average person.

I also despise the idea of having wires restrict my movement. Especially, given the fact that much of my time is spent in front of a computer. Additionally, I also do a fair amount of driving. Using, cell phones while driving is against the law in some states. Yes, I typically have a few choice words for the knuckleheads, who drive bent over while talking on the phone.

Although, I too drive while talking on my cell, I have always used a headset. This guarantees that I have my eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel. On, the rare occasions where I must dial a number, I typically do so prior to starting the engine.

Unfortunately, the useful life of these 'wired' headsets vary drastically. Most only last for about 1.5 months. I have tried the $9.00 knock-offs and the more sophisticated devices that clip to the ear. None of them impressed me at all. I finally settled for Body Glove brand, as they send you lifetime replacements. Heck, it only cost me the price of shipping the defective unit back to the manufacturer. Eventually, I grew tired of this arrangement. I just wanted a device that works all the time.

Well, I discovered the Bluetooth technology. So, the idea of a quality wireless headset for my cell, was really exciting. I took the plunge and purchased the Jabra FreeSpeak BT250 Bluetooth headset. Thus, far I'm pretty happy with it. Granted, it really works much better with a Bluetooth enable phone, not the Samsung N400, which I own. Nonetheless, I have no tethers.
