Review: Bose Bluetooth Headset

I am one of those people that tend to talk and drive a lot, and I really hate in car bluetooth systems because they interrupt the music when it rings and that drives me nuts. So I have turned back to bluetooth headphones, I tried a few different ones over the years, the Jabra BT250 was my favorite back in the day, but looks like aliens attached something to the back of your ear. I didn’t car because it was comfortable, people could hear me, and it was loud enough but over the years I couldn’t find out that fit that worked just as well and they stopped making them. The jawbone was pretty good but it just didn’t fit my ear very well. Then Bose came out their own bluetooth headset, at long last they have adapted their amazing sound technology to a bluetooth headset. The moment I saw it available forsale I purchased and I never regreted it, now I feel weird talking on the phone and holding the phone. Even when I’m at home walking around, my phone is in my pocket and I’m using the headset.

Pros:

  • Crip Sound, very clear and loud(The other end can’t tell its a head set). You can’t hear the background
  • It only weighs 136 grams which is very light, and you don’t feel it while you are wearing it
  • It fits comfortably in your ear, same as the tri-port head phones
  • Works with bluetooth enabled devices to stream music to them, so you can listen to your iTunes
  • Very simple to use and intuitive, not a confusing headset
  • Battery lasts for about two days with heavy usage which is pretty good
  • Charges via micro-usb so its the same as the Blackberry and Android, so you don’t need a spare charger

Cons:

  • A bit on the expensive side but worth it since quality built headset from Bose
  • You can only use it on your right ear

Overall this is an excellent bluetooth headset, Bose have really done their homework when putting this product together, they knew what people wanted. If you don’t mind it being only a right side bluetooth then I highly recommend it to anyone, it 4.5 out 5 because of price but its an excellent product and does exactly what it promises.

Price: $149

Headset Fines

So the police have something new and useless to add to their fines such as using your phone while your driving. I don’t mind this law at all, since I have been using bluetooth for over 6 years now, before even Sony merged with Ericsson. They can’t seem to fix our lights, at least install sensor traffic light systems, stream line our fine payment process, fix our roads, or fix the 777 hotline so that someone answers the damn phone.

Just for everyone’s information, the police can fine you directly and indirectly, so it is up to the discretion of the police officer. If they see you talking, all they need is your plate number, car make, and color. So they can fine you if you are moving or if they stop you. I wonder how long this is going to last.

On another note, headset sales has gone through the roof, so much so that there is a current shortage in Kuwait for almost every kind of headset.
