The following are a few things to keep in mind as you search for a viable hands free headset:

When looking for the best hands free headset, you will need to be able to find something that uses Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth gives you the ability to send data within a very short distance, such as from your phone to your headset while in the car. The headset uses Bluetooth to sync with your smartphone.

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. Will you be talking on your phone a lot, or just occasionally? Do you plan to use it outside of the car, or just while driving? What is your budget? 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.

A hands free headset makes it possible to chat on your phone, while leaving your hands free for driving. There are quite a few factors to keep in mind while shopping.
