When looking for a cheap Bluetooth headset, you have to dismiss good quality brands such as Sony, Creative, Sennheiser, Microsoft, or anyone else you can think of. You don’t, however, have to compromise completely on brand. Both Motorola and Samsung offer cheap Bluetooth headset deals.
If you really want a really cheap Bluetooth headset, there are “designer’s” headsets which are even cheaper than some regular earphones or headphones.
There are a lot of compromises that you will have to make when buying a good cheap Bluetooth headset. The main ones are comfort and quality. You won’t have to compromise on everything though. All headsets come with the standard warranty and work pretty much the same as any other Bluetooth headset. The reason why you would get a cheap Bluetooth headset is because regular ones cost quite a bit.
Compatibility is very good when you find the best cheap Bluetooth headset for you. Only if you go for really dodgy brands could you maybe stumble across a Bluetooth headset that doesn’t work with your Bluetooth-compliant device. Anyway, it’s pretty unlikely. You will be able to find devices that work with your PS3, laptop, some desktops, and whatever other kind of Bluetooth device you need.
You can go for the absolute cheapest, or only slightly less cheap. We can begin with the cheapest, with the least amount of features, comfort and notoriety. So, depending on how much you’re willing to spend, you can actually just spend a little bit more than the cheapest Bluetooth headset to get the right headset for you.
There’s no point in spending a tiny amount and getting a terrible product, so think about spending a bit more than the lowest price. Look for features you may want, and look for headsets that look relatively comfortable and that won’t break as easy.
It really all depends on your definition of “cheap”. In my opinion, if you go for the cheapest Bluetooth headset of reputable brands such as Sony and Creative, it’s still nice and cheap, but you have the additional benefits of reliability, comfort and features. The microphone is in a more comfortable place and the headband can be more suited for your ears and your head. Additionally, you could even buy some with hi-fi sound, if you’re lucky.
So, in short, depending on how much money you have, pay a bit more money than the cheaper option, in order to ensure a more personalised and appropriate purchase.
