Bluetooth Headset Wireless Enjoying Music and Games

 All wireless headphones are technically wireless, but none of wireless headphones are truly Bluetooth. Confused yet more? Let me explain; when you shop for headphones, you will come across both wireless and Bluetooth. But which one is right for you? Well, once again, don t be confused; I will discuss the wireless or Bluetooth headphone comparison in great detail below.

So, what is Bluetooth? Bluetooth is a standard that was first developed by the two companies Sony and Motorola. Basically, it is a standard that allows devices to communicate with each other wirelessly, using short signals (hence the term 'wireless') that must travel between the devices in question. The wireless headphone, you need to look out for is the type that supports the Bluetooth standard.

In order for Bluetooth to work, the Bluetooth devices from this page must both accept and send the same kind of signal, namely radio frequency. This radio frequency needs to travel from the transmitter of the wireless headphones to the receiver on the other end, so that there can be a complete communication process. The Bluetooth headset can only receive the radio frequency and not transmit it, therefore there is no point-to-point transfer of information between the transmitter and receiver of the wireless headphones - so it is essentially a wireless audio device. Now, as you can see, Bluetooth devices do not interfere with each other, which means they are perfect for use in applications where high signal quality is important.

So, what about battery life? Most wireless headphones make use of radio frequency to communicate with the computer, rather than the USB connection used for the headphones themselves. To this end, it is possible that the battery life of the headphones could suffer, as the signals are stronger than those coming from the computer, and thus require more power to get across. However, in most cases, battery life is not an issue, and the extra battery life comes in handy when you're using the headphones whilst travelling. 

As with most products, the price will usually come with a trade-off. The best wireless headsets are often quite a bit more expensive than their USB wireless alternatives, though you will often find that the extra price is justified by the extra features and capabilities offered. For example, if you don't want to have wires all over your body, either in the form of the wires connected to your computer or connecting your Bluetooth wireless headphones to your car stereo system, then a USB wireless set-up is generally your best option. You will also find that some wireless earbuds for television use can be moved around discretely without making any noticeable disturbance to the ambient environment.

The final point to consider is that, although Bluetooth wireless headphones generally operate much like their counterparts, there are some main differences. The majority of these differences centre around the ability to receive and transmit radio signals, and what the range is (or doesn't be). This has become more important with increasing battery life available with some sets, and makes a big difference when listening to music or watching movies (as well as offering a greater degree of comfort when using these types of headphones whilst engaging in active sports).
