In our constantly connected world, being without your cell phone is like going to work naked. But constantly having to put your phone to your ear can get annoying real fast. Thankfully, that's why Bluetooth headsets were invented, but which is the best for lawyers on the go?
There are a lot of options in today's market and the price range for these devices is just as wide. Costs can vary from free with purchase to ridiculous.
But don't fret, here are three Bluetooth headset choices fit for any attorney's budget.
Best Mono Headset: Aliph Jawbone Era
Aliph Bluetooth headsets are perennial favorites for a reason. The sound and voice quality in the company's products are always top-notch. The Jawbone Era is no exception.
The latest revision to the Jawbone line comes with a slew of improvements. It now sports a built-in accelerometer that allows users to sync, answer calls, and do other functions by shaking the device. While it lacks a dedicated volume rocker, its sleek design will make you the envy of your office. And of course, like all Jawbones, the Era still features the same Voice Activity sensor that sits on your jaw bone to deliver great audio quality.
Best Stereo Headset: Samsung Modus HM6450
Lawyers who don't like being away from their cell phones can either see a shrink or get a stereo headset. Those who opt for the unhealthy work-immersive latter should look no further than the Samsung Modus HM6450. This headset actually has a mono/stereo design. So perhaps it's more fitting for indecisive attorneys.
The device boasts above average audio quality and has text-to-speech capabilities for Android. While its noise suppression isn't the best in the world, it makes up for it with good battery life.
Best Budget Headset: BlueAnt Q2
Not everyone can or is willing to spend a hundred bucks on a headset. For those money-conscience attorneys, the BlueAnt Q2 is your answer. While it normally can retail for more, this device can regularly be found for about $60 or less.
While it doesn't have the Jawbone Era's bells and whistles, its sound quality is still amazing enough to make it one of the best Bluetooth headsets for lawyers.
