Recently I decided I needed a new headset. recommended two Bluetooth headsets for people that wanted something similar to Apple AirPods, but without paying the Apple premium.

The first was the Pasonomi Bluetooth IPX7 Wireless Headphones – $50.

The other was the Funcl AI True Wireless Headphones – $90.

Both of these have great reviews, except when it comes to the most important use case for me: Making calls in the wind.

In other words, a noisy area.

I know the Apple AirPods are trendy, but many users have reported bad experiences with the wind. So paying a more doesn’t get you more. What I was really looking for was a headset that excelled at “noise cancellation.”

After a lot of research, I decided on the Plantronics Voyager Legend Wireless Bluetooth Headset.

For the past week, I have been calling people while out and asking if they hear any extra noise while I have been talking. So far people have thought that I was in a room and not out talking while walking my dog.

This headset is under $60 and the battery lasts somewhere between 6 and 7 hours.

Being that this headset is larger than something like the AirPods, it gave Plantronics the opportunity to add actual buttons to the device. I know a lot of makers choose to create one button with lots of sequences that you need to remember to initiate different features. For example, there is an on/off button, call accept/cancel button, as well as a volume up/down button. All easy to locate and use.

If you need a great headset that will work well in noisy conditions, give this one a try:
