12 best bluetooth headsets

Without wires much more convenient!

Bluetooth technology was first introduced into mobile phones over a decade ago. Now it is supported by the vast majority of push-button devices and virtually any smartphone or tablet, not to mention laptops. But, if earlier the “blue tooth” was used by users mainly for transferring files, ringtones or photos, at the moment wireless communication capabilities are in demand for another reason. Namely - to organize the connection of various peripherals.

In this ranking are the best Bluetooth headsets of 2018-2019, which deserve good reviews from both experts and ordinary customers.

Best bluetooth headsets for music

Beyerdynamic Aventho Wireless
29 990

Based on T51i wired headphones that are already well-known to quality sound lovers, this year’s Beyerdynamic is undoubtedly a hot new product: the Aventho Wireless Bluetooth headset with Tesla speakers (recently used only in studio models) and the function of intelligent sound calibration for individual preferences. .

Dural cases, the overall style of aviation headphones seventy years ago - a great combination of retro themes and modern technologies, the designers here have worked no less than engineers. The chosen style does not spoil the extra “twists” and buttons: the entire control is touch-sensitive.

We just won't describe the sound. Believe me, it's better to hear it yourself - even without adjusting the “character” of the headphones for themselves, they give such a high-quality sound that you can only evaluate it yourself. If we add to this the impeccable style and as close as possible to the perfect ergonomics, then all that remains is to congratulate Beyerdynamic on the victory in the ranking of the best Bluetooth headsets. In 2018, they will become the undisputed favorites of music lovers who do not shun wireless technologies.

Main advantages:
  • The reference by the sense of style work designers
  • Top Tesla speakers
  • Capacious battery
  • High-quality microphone (it's Beyerdynamic!)
Minuses:
  • Average noise reduction

I would call this headset the opening of the year. No matter how I liked Bang & Olufsen, but I am ready to "change" them.
Bowers & Wilkins PX
26 990

“Product of the Year” according to “What Hi-Fi?” Version pleases both the eye and the ear. For Bowers & Wilkins, this model was the first where active noise cancellation is present - something that is just implemented, for example, in shooting headphones, in a headset that pretends to the highest class of sound, is definitely harder to do.

In addition to the noise reduction circuits, which allow the use of several algorithms to choose from, another element of hi-tech was built in here - proximity sensors in each cup. It is enough to lift any cup (the most natural gesture when you want to hear someone better) as the sound automatically pauses. A trifle, like, but it is really convenient.

As for the sound, neither we can find fault with detail or sensitivity. Headphones are especially good, of course, with a wired connection to a high-quality source and the disabled “denoiser” - one cannot say that the first pancake came out lumpy, but it still doesn’t meet the recognized quality masters of Bose. But with a Bluetooth connection, the sound loses a bit, and this is more a consequence of the specifics of the protocol itself than the lack of the digital part of the B & W audio path.

For what we removed part of the points in the rating? Visit the specific design of the headband. For the big-headed music lovers, these “ears” will not seem very comfortable, which is indecent for audio equipment of this level. If we consider how much more convenient Beyerdynamic is, and the price is absolutely the same ...

Main advantages:
  • Support AptX HD, AAC
  • Stylish design, quality materials
  • Highly sensitive speakers
Minuses:
  • Harsh headband
  • The work of noise cancellation does not interfere with the music, but is felt in the sound

Not only high-quality sound, but also a respected company, whose name says a lot to understanding people.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II
23 990

What has become synonymous with QuietComfort? That's right, the quality of active noise reduction is extremely close to ideal. In the updated model, Bose does not lower the set bar - even in the subway, which can hardly be called a suitable place to listen to your favorite music, extraneous sounds will be brought out beyond the boundaries of the “comfort sphere”.

This bluetooth headset will be the best choice for those who need music in any setting. Sophisticated ergonomics, effective “noise”, good autonomy - that is suitable for this purpose. The sound also corresponds to the prestige of the brand, although the lack of support for AptX still hints that the bundled audio cable is not just that. Rating points, however, we will subtract.

If, however, the QuietComfort 35 II is not treated as a “purely musical” headset, namely as a wireless headset, then a high-quality microphone and support for voice assistants (Siri, Google Assistant) are worth noting. If the leaders of the rating are bluetooth headsets, which are uniquely intended for those who appreciate true sound quality, then it’s rather a matter of the target audience of gadget lovers and, what’s more, the usual hipsters. Okay, Google, what is the final score to put Bose?

Main advantages:
  • Effective noise reduction
  • Energetic and well-detailed "bottom" - again curtsy towards the youth audience
  • Phone connection reliability
Minuses:
  • Limited quality audio transmission via Bluetooth

The best Bluetooth headset for your phone, in order to listen to music on the go. And the microphone when calling works fine.
Marshall Major II Bluetooth
7 299

The iconic (without exaggeration) firm from Milton Kings does not limit itself to just the top segment - this model of a Bluetooth headset is not so expensive. True, the author immediately mischievously recalled what is inside Marshall's low-end combo amplifiers - and the guitar technique for them has become a real “face” and, in theory, should always correspond to the volume of the name.

So you have to deal with these headphones, diligently struggling with prejudice. The “stuffing” is expectedly simple - for example, active noise cancellation, as in the novelty of 2018, Marshall Mid A.N.C., is not here, and even 40-millimeter speakers are simpler. Nevertheless, the headphones can boast excellent autonomy on a single charge, decent ergonomics and a proprietary sound perfectly suited for rock music. Are you going to listen to dubstep with Marshall headphones, really?

So, if you are not an advanced audiophile, the budget is limited by a reasonable framework, and Queensrÿche or Doro Pesch have long been settled in the playlist, then it is definitely worth asking the headphones.

Main advantages:
  • Good value for money
  • Autonomy
  • Wearing comfort
Minuses:
  • Slightly noisy Bluetooth module

In a dispute with competitors, they (personally for me) won at least because of the brand, but the sound here is not bad at all.
SVEN AP-B770MV
2 740

We would put the most advanced model of SVEN wireless headsets on a budget position in this category. Although her younger “sisters” can boast of working on a more modern protocol, as well as the possibility of an alternative wired connection, in terms of practicality and comfort from long wearing, they are noticeably inferior to AP-B770MV. But the convenience of the controls of our nominee a few pumped up - the narrow solid strips of keys on both cups do not exclude getting "not there". At least at first. Headset microphone is one, and it is highly sensitive and wide-directional. Therefore, it is not worth counting on the legible transmission of your speech on a noisy street. On the other hand, full-size headphones are more likely a home or office option, and in such conditions SVEN AP-B770MV performs its functions on a solid four.

Main advantages:
  • lack of glossy surfaces;
  • good duration of work on one charge;
  • comfortable fit.
Minuses:
  • no wired interface;
  • No active noise cancellation.

Very good Bluetooth headphones, have served faithfully for more than two years. They survived many falls, shots and throws. For such a sum - great sound and excellent vitality.

Best Bluetooth Headsets for Business People

Plantronics Explorer 110/115
3 290

If we evaluate this headset primarily for a complete set, then it is clearly focused on the use of motorists. By the way, they will have at their disposal not only charging from the “cigarette lighter” and a convenient holder, which can be hooked onto the blower grill, but also the ability to control the smartphone with the help of a voice assistant. Unfortunately, the corresponding component of the gadget is not Russified, so it will be necessary to communicate with Cortana, Siri or Google Now assistant in English, Spanish or French. It is this fact, as well as the need for preliminary manual unlocking of the smartphone before contacting the assistant, and did not allow us to rate Plantronics Explorer more highly, although the headset is very good in terms of sound transmission and noise-reduction system performance. It lasts one battery charge for about seven hours of continuous conversations, and the device can be in the “hibernation” mode for six months.

Main advantages:
  • the quality of sound transmission in both directions;
  • integration with voice assistants of the main operating systems;
  • excellent autonomy.
Minuses:
  • bad location of the main button;
  • non-russian voice interface

Nice bluetooth headset with a simple but elegant design and plenty of volume. The interlocutors hear me well, even when the noise level is active.
Jabra talk
1 999

Pick up a decent offer from Plantronics for a budget position in the ranking of the best Bluetooth-headsets (for example, model M75), but in this category our sympathies are on the side of Jabra Talk. Of course, expect miracles from a wireless headset worth a half thousand rubles is not necessary. Nevertheless, the quality of voice transmission is very decent here, and if your smartphone “can” work with VoLTE, then it will be even better, as long as the gadget supports HD Voice technology.

The weak side of the model can be considered its ergonomics, and specifically - the controls. Behind a stylish silver lining with the logo of the manufacturer is a multifunctional button. It is convenient in the "working" position of the headset, but to avoid accidental clicks, it is better to hide the device in a pocket or purse when it is turned off. In this case, the corresponding switch is located in a very inconvenient place, access to which is difficult - above the speaker's sound guide. On the other hand, having gotten along, you can answer calls by pressing the button with your shoulder.

Main advantages:
  • great sound for a budget headset;
  • affordable price.
Minuses:
  • bad power button layout;
  • Charger not included.

It works well with the iPhone, including seamlessly interacting with Siri. Calls takes a single click. Music is played cleanly, all sounds from the applications on the headset are transmitted. For its price - the best inexpensive Bluetooth headset.
Sony MBH22
1 920

Good-quality and lightweight Bluetooth headset amused by the support of the AAC codec - you have to agree, it is unlikely that listening to music will be in the priority of the owner of the mono headset-insert. The manufacturer decided to do without the control of a single multi-key (this is a plus for convenience), and without touch control (this is a plus for affordability): the owner has three buttons that are quite well placed. For example, the answer button can not be pressed accidentally - it works down, and not towards the head, so you have to use two fingers with a pinch.

The headset’s sound is legible and with a good volume margin, so you can speak with it in noisy places. Of course, there are not enough ear cushions of various sizes in the kit, a couple of functions like a quick call to the last number ... But, in the end, this is a budget model, and it justifies its money.

Main advantages:
  • Good sound
  • Autonomy
Minuses:
  • Average ergonomics without customization

Good bluetooth headset for your phone. The ear is not tiring, the connection with the smartphone is good, and the sound is clear and loud. That from the headset of such a plan and need.
Plantronics Voyager Legend
6 300

This headset is designed for those who like to talk while driving. It is conveniently attached to the ear, without distracting the user. The built-in battery with its full charge lasts for 7 hours - a pretty good result for such a tiny device. To achieve its creators managed by using technology Bluetooth 3.0. There is no NFC support here, so connection to the smartphone takes some time. The headset has at its disposal three microphones at once. Two of them are used to transmit speech, while the third is trying to save it from external noise. The case of the device is pleasant to the touch, which is important. He also has a moisture protection, so you can not remove the earpiece when leaving the car in rainy weather. The call is answered by touching the touch pad. When you remove the headset, the sensor turns off and the connection from smartphones is automatically interrupted. The use of all these technologies has affected the price tag - not to name a cheap headset.

Main advantages:
  • Moisture protection
  • Noise suppression
  • Convenient use
  • Good battery life
  • Good audibility
Minuses:
  • High price
  • A unique adapter is needed for recharging.

Top Bluetooth Headsets for Sports

AfterShokz Trekz Air
9 990

Trekz Air from AfterShokz is a Bluetooth headset, but not headphones. How so? If you are already familiar with this company, then do not be surprised, and if not, then we will explain: the brand's "trick" of the brand was the use of bone conduction for transmitting sound (directly to the middle ear), rather than traditional sound emitters. That is, we have one of the few headsets that provide zero sound insulation from the outside world: when jogging through the city streets and other “non-chamber” workouts, this ensures the highest degree of security.

Of course, audiophile doesn’t call such technology, and Trekz Air is first of all a headset for talking on the run or upside down. Although Beethoven managed to write music in an absolutely analogous way, in truth, instead of a high-tech headset, he had an ordinary wooden stick. And yes, people with hearing problems will be especially interested in Trekz Air: are there many wireless headsets suitable for them?

Main advantages:
  • Safety during street workouts
  • High-quality sweat protection
  • Ease and ergonomics
Minuses:
  • Specific sound
  • The inconvenience of talking in a noisy place
  • Music? What is music?

As a sports headset, the Trekz Air, in my opinion, has become the best model - not among analogs, but of all.
Plantronics BackBeat FIT
7 000

This bluetooth headset comes to the rescue during your morning run. The creators supplied earplugs with a hard headband, so that the headset does not fly off when performing any exercises. However, this imposes one limitation. The headband has a fixed size, which is why this model does not fit on each head. In this regard, ordering a Plantronics BackBeat FIT headset in an online store should be done with care, preferably providing all necessary parameters in advance to an online consultant. Otherwise, it is a wonderful specimen, outstanding sound of excellent quality. After playing sports, the headset can be put in the case supplied.The device is not afraid of any falls (due to the minimum weight and rubberized body), nor rain.

Main advantages:
  • Unique appearance
  • Great sound quality
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Minimum dimensions and weight (24 g)
  • Moisture protection
Minuses:
  • Mandatory fitting
  • High price

Monster iSport Achieve Wireless
3 990

Good build quality and sound, extremely intuitive tactile control are unambiguous assets of the Monster iSport Achieve Wireless bluetooth headset. The only thing we will inevitably find fault with is the eternal problem of wireless headphones with remotes hanging down, where the battery is hidden: this “suspension” starts to dangle on the run, unwittingly pulling the headset out of the ears. After all, it seems to be a plastic clip - this is a cheap detail, but the owner has nothing to fix the console on, you have to use fantasy.

This miscalculation is not so much sad, but funny, otherwise the headset is more than good for your money. Well, okay, we are not used to “modifying a file” ...

Main advantages:
  • Good sound
  • "Long-running" battery
  • Reliable fixation in the ears
Minuses:
  • No remote lock on clothing. Not at all.

For an inexpensive headset, the sound is good, even considering the lack of support for the new-fashioned AptX.

Freedom from wires at times increases comfort when using any technical device, and wireless headsets are a vivid example. Although not find a more diverse class of essentially related devices. But, you see, fans of an active lifestyle Bluetooth headset requires a light, not flying off from the head, and sometimes protected from the same moisture at the highest level. Motorists free hands and the ability to continuously monitor sound environments, even when they are in important business negotiations, are critical. For several reasons music lovers They may prefer a wired headset model, but none of them will provide simultaneous connection to two signal sources simultaneously.

Each task has its own solution, and we will be happy if this review helps you.
