headsets are now pretty commonplace with most cell phones coming
equipped with the technology. One limitation to most of these
headsets is the working range. The standard effective range of most
BT devices is 10 meters (32 feet). Callpod a company known for their
various mobile technologies have released the Callpod
Dragon v2 Bluetooth Headset which has a
supposed range of 100 meters (328 feet) when used with a class 1
enabled Bluetooth device. Sounds pretty impressive.
their proprietary noise mitigation system known as dual-mic noise
suppression. This technology activates when a call comes through and
helps reduce background noise while enhancing and optimizing the
sound quality of the conversation.
In addition to
this ten fold increase in range, the Dragon V2 Bluetooth Headset also
features eight hours of talk time, 300 hours of standby time, Skype
functionality, multi-device pairing and Dragon to Dragon communications for walkie talkie like
capability. The Dragon has a different shape than most standard

There’s a plethora of choices when I
comes to bluetooth headsets, with more being added on a monthly basis
to those choices. The new laws in many areas that have been enacted
have forced consumers to go handsfree and that means big money for
headset makers so it seems everyone is jumping on the bandwagon for
their piece of the pie. Is this a good or bad thing though? That
depends on how you look at it, in some it’s good for the consumer as
it brings rise to competition and therefore lower prices in the long
run, but th bad part about it is with so many of them, not all of
them are good and worth your money.
Today for review I’ve got the BlueAnt
X3 Micro Bluetooth headset, and it’s from our friends at The Wireless
Boys. The X3 micro has a few nice features, including and most
importantly, it is lightweight, for me that’s a very important
factor. It also has a 7 hour talk time, along with a 180 hour standby
time and it includes both an AC adapter and a car charger. Being
lightweight and looking good are not much if the headset doesn’t
perform though, so continue on to learn more…

The original Jawbone from Aliph was one
of the most highly regarded Bluetooth headsets released. Recently,
Aliph released the successor to the Jawbone, aptly named the New
Jawbone. Aliph refers to it as the New Jawbone on their website
while others call it the Jawbone 2. Today we will look at what
differentiates the Jawbone 2 from all other Bluetoooth headsets and
whether it should be the only headset paired with your cell phone.
The reputation of the Jawbone is one of
superior sound quality and stylishness. Aliph took the original
version and slimmed it down while keeping many of the features of the
original. It still includes the military grade noise reduction
technology known as NoiseAssassin. Plus, it keeps its minimalistic
stylish appearance, which looks more like some fashion item for your
ear than a blinking blue LED lit piece of plastic.
So let’s take a closer look at
whether the New Jawbone is worth the investment.

Bluetooth technology is becoming more prevalent everyday. With Bluetooth’s inclusion in most newer cell phones, the adoption of this technology has exploded. Although most people associate Bluetooth with cell phone headsets, the technology has many other applications.
One of the more exciting uses for Bluetooth is for wireless stereo headphones. Wires can be a hassle, whether it is wire management or worry about snagging them on the surrounding environment. Being free from the tether of a stereo headphone wires is truly priceless.
Today, we will be looking at the Genius BT-03A Bluetooth headset. This headphone is marketed as the smallest Bluetooth set in the world. Using BT 1.2 technology, it features a range of 30 feet and a battery life of 6.5 hours. During the past few weeks, I had a chance to put these headphones to the test. Let’s see how they did.

Music is everywhere, the Ipod, the Zune, and on any other Mp3 player out there. You’ll find these devices in use by an extremely diverse group of peoples, from children to construction workers and up to the executive levels of corporations. It seems everyone is plugged in these days in one way or another. One thing I quite never figured out though is why most people settle for the blah stock earbuds or headphones that come with these devices, you like your music enough to take it with you so why not really enjoy it with a quality set of headphones, and why be wired to your device? This is where Logitech comes in with the introduction of their FreePulse wireless headphones, which of course is what I have for review today. I love my music, and it is enhanced even more with the excellent quality of the FreePulse. Read on to learn more about these excellent headphones…
