Phone Headset Makes Driving Safer
There are many communities, which have made using your cell phone while driving your car illegal. Punishments for this crime may vary from city-to-city and state-to-state but when you can pick up a phone headset for every type of cell phone; there is no reason to put yourself, or others, at risk.
In addition, very few people are appreciative of having their movie, conversation or dinner at a restaurant interrupted by someone's cell phone ringing. Many have the attitudes that if you are that important, stay home. While cell phones can be a great asset in case of an emergency, discussing the color of your dress does not qualify as an emergency. Use of a phone headset can reduce the number of annoyed stares you receive.
Many styles of a phone headset are not intrusive at all, and with a built in microphone, you will only have to pull your cell phone out to charge it, or call someone at a number not already programmed in for voice dial. Additionally, that latest, and for some reason very loud, song you downloaded as a ringer, can only be heard by you and not others who may not share the same appreciation of your music genre.
Reception Determines Sound Quality
Unless you bought your phone headset from a quarter win-a-prize-everytime display at your neighborhood grocery store, it will usually provide decent-enough sound for a telephone conversation. Most are small enough to be virtually invisible and except for the microphone that may extend forward a couple of inches, will not be seen by others. They are also very comfortable and able to be worn for hours without being annoying to you.
Earlier models of the phone headset may have had a wire microphone that wrapped around you head to sit in front of your mouth to pick up your voice better, but as phone headset quality improved so did the dynamics of microphone capabilities. They can now pick up your voice while the microphone rests just in front of your ear. During your conversation, however, remember the person you are talking with will also be able to hear any noise or conversations around you.
A phone headset is a necessary item for some occupations such as operators at a call center, or in an office, as well as those who talk on the phone while taking notes about the conversation or otherwise occupied by multi-tasking.
