How to Wear a Bluetooth Headset

How to Wear a Bluetooth Headset. A Bluetooth headset is fast becoming a mandatory accessory for any cell phone user. The market for Bluetooth headsets, which are capable of providing hands-free calling, has gone through the roof. Once considered a high-end luxury, quality Bluetooth headsets are now available at all price points. There are several different designs available, and choosing one depends on what's most comfortable for you to wear.

Choose a Bluetooth Headset that Fits Comfortably

Step

Choose a Bluetooth design that fits into your ear with an ear bud. The ear bud is covered by contoured soft gel inserts that come with the unit in varying sizes. Test different sizes to find one that fits snugly enough to block out ambient sound but isn't too uncomfortable when worn for several hours.

Step

Select a Bluetooth headset designed to be hooked around your ear. The ear hooks stabilize the unit and should be molded to match the contours of your ear for comfort. These types of Bluetooth headsets tend to be more comfortable than ear bud designs, but can be less secure on your ear.

Step

Pick the Bluetooth headset design that features the bulk of the unit hugging the ear. Usually featuring a microphone that extends towards the mouth, these units are flexible enough to adjust to the size of your ear for comfort.

Step

Consider a Bluetooth headset with ear buds that wrap around both ears and join at the nape of your neck. If you plan on using your headset to listen to music in addition to talking on the phone, this will allow you to hear sound in stereo and is a sturdy design.

Step

Use a Bluetooth headset that looks like headphones when working on the computer for long periods of time. You'll get all the cord-free benefits of Bluetooth, but the comfort of ordinary headphones.

Step

Consider a necklace Bluetooth headset if you find it uncomfortable to wear the on-the-ear design. Featuring retractable ear buds, these units hang around the neck like a pendant.
