Bluetooth Headset Reviews 2013
For many cell phone users, a Bluetooth headset is a must, particularly when driving. But the latest Bluetooth technology provides users with much more than hands-free driving. It also allows them access to streaming music and the internet. They can even transmit files.
As Bluetooth’s versatility has increased, so have the number of headsets that support it. I have selected a few of the best new bluetooth headsets and shortly reviewed them in Bluetooth headset reviews 2013.

H17tx comes with three unique features: RapidConnect, which allows you to answer and end calls with the flip of a switch; CrystalTalk, which automatically adjusts audio settings to reduce background noise; and MotoSpeak, which lets you to hear texts, send automatic replies, get travel advice, and listen to music.
The H17txt’s voice prompts are another handy feature, providing a variety of information, including how to connect the headset to your phone. It also alerts users when the battery is low, which happens after approximately five hours of use.
