A Bluetooth® device works by using radio waves instead of wires or cables to connect with your cell phone, smartphone or computer. Bluetooth is a wireless short-range communications technology standard found in millions of products we use every day – including headsets, smartphones, laptops and portable speakers.
Bluetooth headsets connect via a specialized type of wireless network to your telephone. Using technology developed specifically for the purpose of eliminating the need for the unsightly and ungainly wires that once needed to be used to connect a headset to a telephone, Bluetooth headsets enable you to speak and hear through an earpiece while leaving your hands free. The technology involved in a headset helps ensure that their use is safe and high-quality, all while maintaining the security of your telephone.
The most important thing to look for in a pair of Bluetooth headphones is battery life. Most devices have an expected battery life, or the number of hours the company says the device can last on a charge. Most wireless earbuds are rated for 6 to 8 hours, while Bluetooth headphones can last about 25 hours.
