Helmet headsets have come a long way in the last 10 years. They are still easy to use, but now they come with a variety of different accessories that can streamline things like work and keeping in touch with family and friends when you are out somewhere. It is important to know about the available accessories and how they may be helpful for you.
Headset bluetooth can add a wide variety of functions to your headset. Such functions can include steaming audio and music and voice alerts, such as volume, connection and talk time. These generally have a good battery life, offering an average of eight to 12 hours of power. Many smartphones can be used with these so you will also have the full talk functions that are associated with your phone. You can choose from a variety of earbuds and the bluetooth devices also come in different shapes and sizes.
Some of the newer headsets have a touchscreen feature that helps to free up your hands. The screen allows you to manage the calls that you receive, as well as multitask when you are working. You can answer your phone, including landlines and cell phones, from as far as 450 feet away from the devices. These usually have a noise blackout technology so that you do not have to deal with static and other types of interference.
A headset radio allows you to keep in contact with your partners and colleagues without having to use your hands. This is helpful for many different situations, such as security functions, when you are hunting, to stay in touch during games like paintball and even for things like staying in touch with your kids when you are all together at a place like the zoo, but have decided to separate for a short while.
