Shopping for the perfect hands free headset can be a bit of a process. Before you even head to the store it’s a wise idea to think about how you plan to use the headset.

Are you looking for an actual headset or an ear bud/hook? And what is the range the headset supports?

There can be a pretty substantial difference in the sound quality between the inexpensive and more expensive options. You may want to aim for middle of the road if you only talk from time to time, and invest more money if you’ll be using it daily.
