Best Bluetooth Headset
1. Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Headset
The Voyager Legend bluetooth headset by Plantronics features Smart Sensor technology, which intuitively directs calls to your phone or headset, pauses music for incoming calls, and allows you to automatically answer by simply placing the headset on your ear.
One cool feature that really made me enjoy using this headset is the Plantronics exclusive Vocalyst service, which lets you manage e-mail, check weather, or update Facebook. Also, Voyager Legend comes with high grade moisture protection, allowing it to withstand rain, sweat and the inevitable coffee spill.
This headset incorporates 3 fine-tuned microphones which separate your speech from up to 80dB’s of background noise while enhanced Windsmart technology provides three layers of wind protection for clear calls regardless of your environment.

2. Jawbone ERA Bluetooth Headset
Due to it’s innovative and impressive features you’ll always find the Jawbone ERA headset at the top of best-of lists everywhere. The headset also features NoiseAssasin 3.0 noise and wind canceling technology for clear communication and a 25 percent larger wideband speaker that brings Hi-Definition audio as you talk on the phone, listen to music, and more.
The Jawbone Era is the first Bluetooth headset to have an accelerometer along with a motion technology called MotionX. As an alternative to using the talk button, you can shake or tap the headset to perform a variety of tasks. For instance, you can double-tap the outer surface of the headset to answer, end, or switch calls. You can also shake the headset twice to answer calls when the headset is not in the ear.

3. Jabra SUPREME UC Bluetooth Headset
The Jabra Supreme headset comes with a Nano Bluetooth USB adapter which allows you to quickly and easily connect to your PC by plugging it into the USB port. Once connected you can take calls on your PC using the latest internet call software.
The headset features active noise canceling, making it the first Bluetooth mono headset to offer this feature which enhances your listening experience, so that you hear the conversation clearly and without disruptions from your surrounding environment.
Jabra Supreme incorporates Voice Control which allows the user to answer or ignore calls by using simple voice commands. But that’s not all, by saying “Phone commands” the headset activates a menu for conducting primary phone functions like “Call Name” and “Dial 555-3489”. You even can tell it to pull up your calendar or tell you how much battery life is left. If you forget what commands are possible, asking “What can I say?” gives you all spoken word options.
