Six of the best Bluetooth headsets

Get your hands on these Bluetooth wonders

We at T3 are the first to admit that, in the past, the Bluetooth headset hasn't been the top of our most wanted list. However, our ever-growing need for these wireless wonders has forced us to look upon the world of hands-free kit, and finally, we are starting to like what we see.

So fish your credit card out of your wallet/pocket/down the side of the sofa, and feast your eyes on our selection of six of the best stylish Bluetooth headsets.


Best for... Noise Cancelling


reviewJawbone Prime Noise Assassin
£80

This discreet yet garish ’piece touts Noise Assassin 2.0 tech to separate your voice from the surrounding hubbub, even in wind speeds of up to 10mph. Call quality is allegedly “improved five-fold,” and although it’s not clear how that exact figure is reached, results are impressive. It’s available in a range of colours to match your tie – relax, most are less brash than this one.

Best for... Overall Features


reviewPlantronics Voyager Pro
£TBC

Plantronics’ inclusion of not one but two noise-cancelling mics means that your voice comes through loud and clear no matter what’s occurring around you. There’s also three layers of wind smart technology to protect your calls from the elements, voice control for switching to mute, hanging-up or checking battery status, and an ergonomic clip to fit anyone’s ears.

Best for... Connectivity


reviewJabra BT2080
£99

An all-new status display on the BT2080 allows you to check connectivity and battery life at a glance, and the sizeable, well-positioned on/off button allows you to answer calls swiftly without looking like an elderly relative adjusting their hearing aid. Thanks to Bluetooth 2.1, it also now links to your mobile phone quicker than you can say, “I’m sorry, I have to wear this for work.”

Best for... Appearance

reviewMotorola Pure H12
£70

Here, retro stylishness – this looks a bit like you have a tiny, shrunken 1950s transistor radio clamped to your ear – meets modern tech, with CrystalTalk technology ensuring fi ne call clarity. You get a matching charging cradle and case and the H12 will work at up to 33 feet, which is handy if you habitually stride about whilst talking on the phone, leaving your mobile in its charging cradle.

Best for... Innovation


reviewTag Heuer Bluetooth Headset
£TBC

Tag Heuer has banished wires. Instead its headset comes with a removable, USB-charging battery pack that gives four hours use per charge and doubles as a 4GB USB drive. It’s also small enough to fit in any suit pocket and weighs just 40g. A USB stick and a Bluetooth headset in one... The ultimate businessman’s companion? Pricing is certain to be quite “ultimate”.

Best for... Bikers

reviewParrot SK4000
£170

Designed for the more loquacious easy rider, this headset attaches to your helmet. Call volume adjusts to match your speed, so you can be heard above the guttural roar of your 50cc moped and text-to-speech functionality and voice control are built in. The SK4000 means you can enjoy tunes on the move too, as it includes an FM radio and a line-in to connect your MP3 player.
