What Bluetooth hands-free kit is right for you?

CAC Admin |

In the modern age being contactable in all circumstances is seen as essential and this includes when you’re on the move. While it’s against the law to use a handheld mobile phone while driving, using a Bluetooth headset can enable you to use your device while being safe in the process.

It means there’s no need to bypass the law and you can keep all personal and work issues under control with relative ease. There are a number of hands-free kits out there and all offer a variety of features to keep you connected, while also coming in all shapes and sizes.

From devices that fit into your ear such as the RAC Voice Port to the Mr Handsfree headsets that fit around your head, there are plenty of styles to match your requirements. Clear sound quality is vital as you want to ensure that those you are connected with can hear everything you’re saying without missing anything out.

There’s also devices that can plug into the car’s cigarette lighter socket that enable contact on the go, with controls and buttons appearing on screen in front of the driver.

What about the extras?

Some features include echo cancellation and noise suppression so the clarity of the call is never impeded. Therefore all those key details won’t be missed and you’ll never have a reason to miss an important call.

Additional perks of some devices can be voice recognition and the potential for no contact at all with the machine – enabling your eyes to remain on the road at all times. For instance, the Parrot Minikit Slim recognises any name in your phonebook and can call any desired contact based solely on what you ask – ideal for a completely hands-free experience.

When it comes to picking a hands-free kit, it’s all about individual preference and what sort of device may suit your needs. Fundamentally, all do the same task, but the operating processes and connections will all be different. The key will be that it is easy to pair with your device and that it is capable of meeting your individual needs.

There are a number of different hands free kits available, but finding the right one for you will depend on how much you intend to use it and what functionality you require.
