Recently I decided I needed a new headset. BusinessInsider.com 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:
