All About Wireless Headsets

bluetooth wireless headsets

Wireless headsets normally consist of headphones or one headphone and a microphone. Some wireless headsets also have a speaker for each ear but the norm is only one speaker driver. Those with a single-piece headset are known as monaural wireless headsets. The microphone of wireless headsets can either be of the external type or of the voicetube type. Voicetube wireless headsets designs are also called internal microphone design.

The microphone of wireless headsets can also be omni-directional or noise-cancelling. The noise-canceling microphone wireless headsets use a bi-directional microphone. What this means is that the wireless headsets microphone has two angles only, limiting its receptive field to the front and direct opposite back of the microphone. Noise-canceling microphone wireless headsets are great for picking up sounds in a close proximity to the user while Omni-directional wireless headset microphones pick up the complete 360 degree field, including the background noise.

Wireless headsets allow you to make phone calls completely handsfree. This is of a great advantage to drivers especially since the cellphone ban law was passed a few years ago. Wireless headsets can either be worn over the head, over the back of the neck or over the ear. In terms of specifications, there are three main classifications of wireless headsets.

The first is Direct Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications wireless headsets and it is one of the most common for cordless telephones. DECT wireless headsets use Generic access profiling to ensure communication between the wireless headset and its base station, regardless of manufacturer.

The second classification of wireless headsets is 2.4 GHz wireless headsets. This uses the 2.4 GHz Radio frequency as opposed to the 1.88/1.9 for DECT wireless headsets. This is because most countries have the 2.4 GHz band open for wireless audio transmission, making wireless headsets with this RF more sellable in most markets. 2.4 GHz wireless headsets normally come with a wireless headset and a wireless base-station. You can connect this wireless base-station to your original telephone unit using the handset jack. Some wireless headsets also offer an automatic handset lifter allowing the user to wirelessly lift the handset off the telephone by pushing a button on the wireless headset.

The final and most popular type of wireless headset amongst cellphone users are Bluetooth wireless headsets. They are normally used for short-range voice transmission, due to the fact that Bluetooth wireless headsets use low power to reduce battery drain. Bluetooth wireless headsets can either be 1.0/1.1 or Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). Bluetooth wireless headsets 1.0/1.1 either does not play music or plays it at a very low quality while A2DP wireless headsets can play music at an acceptable quality.

Wireless headsets have changed the way we communicate on the phone, offering us more range, freedom of movement and flexibility.
