Are Bluetooth headsets for cell phones cool? What’s a Bluetooth headset? It’s that doohicky you occasionally see sticking out of some dudes ear that kind of makes him look like a character from the movie Tron or a lost Star-trek fan. I’m just not sure – living in Eugene Oregon I don’t always have the best perspective on what’s in and what isn’t. Why do I ask? Because I bought one for my Bluetooth enabled Motorolla Razr and I can’t bring myself to wear it in public. Maybe it’s just because my ears are a little on the big side of Dumbo ears.
I bought the Motorola HS820 from Amazon for $25 – a good price considering I’ve seen the same headset for sale here in town and on-line for as much as $75. You need to buy it from the "used and new" section to get that price. The sound quality is excellent and establishing the connection with the Razr was straightforward. When I press the little button with the phone icon on it the Razr’s voice activation features come to life and I can make a call without even touching the phone. I love the headset and for $25 it’s a no-brainer add-on for your cell phone. Great for driving and talking in the car – I use mine while I commute on my bike.
