Bluetooth technology has made possible the wireless communication between fixed and mobile devices over short distances, and even the creation of Personal Area Networks (PANs). Bluetooth headsets, in recent times, have become a popular accessory of choice for hands-free operation of phone handsets. Individuals working in telephone intensive workplaces like call centers and even those who may wish to operate their handsets hands-free would certainly require a Bluetooth handset to do the job. Bluetooth headsets are available in both single and double earpiece designs. Single earpiece headsets will enable you to make interactions with others as well as your surroundings. Double earpiece headsets will normally have stereo support, although some double-earpiece designs for telephone sets may be designed not to support stereo.
