BlackBerrySource.com Reviews Bluetooth Headsets
One of the fastest-growing communications technologies on the market today is Bluetooth. This short-range system allows mobile phones, computers, PDAs and other devices to be easily linked, using a wireless connection. Users can completely coordinate all their mobile and fixed computer devices—while eliminating the cables that usually connect portable and/or fixed electronic devices. The availability of a host of accessories makes this cutting-edge technology even more appealing.
Online retailer BlackBerrySource.com, a division of mobile device retailer eAccess Solutions, sells Bluetooth accessories for Blackberry. Consumers rely on the company to not only offer the widest selection of Bluetooth accessories, but to offer quality and functional accessories that are truly useful every day.
That’s why BlackBerrySource.com’s engineers reviewed two wireless headsets—the Plantronics Voyager 510 Bluetooth Headset and the Scala 500 Bluetooth Headset—for power, performance and quality. The following describes what they found.
The Plantronics Voyager 510
“The Plantronics Voyager 510 Bluetooth headset is simply one of the best Bluetooth headsets that we’ve come across,” says Jennifer Bean, IS Director of eCommerce for eAccess. “It’s comfortable to wear all day, and it offers superior sound quality from both the speaker and the mini-boom noise canceling microphones.”
In addition to coming with a removable wind screen that actually works, even outside, the engineers found that the unit offers three different sized ear-buds to assure a comfortable fit.
In addition to long battery life, another unique feature of the Voyager is the optional base unit (510S/SL). The headset can seamlessly switch between your desk phone and your handheld device.
Other features of the device include:
Reliability, comfort and light-weight for extended use
Adjustable swivel boom for positioning on either ear
Simple to use—dedicated buttons for volume, on/off, mulit-function
Scala 500 Bluetooth Headset
Calling the Scala 500 “an excellent value in a light-weight, comfortable and effective Bluetooth headset,” BlackBerrySource.com engineers find that it has easy-to-use controls that include noise cancelling and wind resistant technology.
“The Scala 500 is also one of our top sellers because it pairs easily, offers several different wearing options,” says Bean. “And it comes with a number of accessories such as a carry sleeve, neckband, belt clip and Versa clip for eye/sun glass attachment.”
Under the “truly functional” category, the device’s manufacturer, Cardo, offers a Bluetooth adapter that uses the same quality technology to adapt non-Bluetooth enabled devices to work with any Bluetooth headset.
The engineers found that the adapter is small enough to easily attach to the phone device. They also found the Scala 500 to:
Be compact, economical and light-weight for extended use
Have superior battery life with noise canceling/ wind resistant microphone
Have an adjustable clip for positioning on either ear
Have an extensive list of accessories
Be easy to use controls with job dial
“Other than these two outstanding Bluetooth headsets, there are many more exciting, functional and revolutionary Bluetooth-enabled accessories to make your Blackberry highly functional.” Such accessories include speakerphones, adapters, keyboards and SmartCard readers. All can be purchased from BlackBerrySource.com.
