The era of hands-free telecommunication has long arrived. People can now do better multitasking, for their hands can do more aside from holding a phone or using a microphone. With better microphones, newer bluetooth headphones have paved the way to even better and easier communication.
So many features have been introduced to this wondrous piece of technology. One of the basic features of bluetooth headphones is the microphone. The microphone found in a bluetooth headset can be either the boom type or the boomless type. In this post, you will read about the difference between the two and some of the different bluetooth headset models that contain either type of microphone.
The boom microphone is attached to the headset with a flexible joint that can be adjusted. The microphone is place near the mouth of the user and it can be arched near or away from the mouth. This type of microphone is usually seen in headsets used by telephone operators. Though, there are so many stylish headsets today that will make you look more like a business executive or a singer in a concert rather than a phone operator. Some bluetooth headset models that have a boom microphone with a not-so-traditional style include the Jabra FreeSpeak BT250, Jabra BT130, Motorola H8910 Bluetooth Wireless Headset, Solteras Halo BTH Headset, and Plantronics Voyager 510-USB Bluetooth Headset.
On the other hand, the boomless microphone has no flexible joint that arches towards the user's mouth. Instead, the microphone is placed on your earpiece. You will not look like an operator or a singer in a concert, but you may seem like you are talking to yourself from afar, since the microphone is not quite visible. The headset models that have this kind of mic are include the Epox BT-HS01, Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Headset HBH-65, Step 1150 Wireless Headset, Bluespoon Digital Bluetooth Headset, and Cardo Scala 500 Bluetooth Headset.
There are so many headphones with boom or boomless microphones aside from those mentioned above. When buying a headset, make sure that you buy a headset with a mic that is comfortable for you to use and whose style is in accordance with your tastes and style. Whether you want to look like an operator or a person who talks to himself or herself, it does not really matter as long as you are satisfied with the quality of your bluetooth headphones.
