Top 8 | Bluetooth Headsets for Android

As an Android user who doesn’t particularly need a Bluetooth headset in the day to day running of things, both at work and at home, I found this list quite a task to assemble. I mean, it’s all well and good adopting certain headsets for a period of time and ranking them based on a number of different qualities, but I’ve never experienced the stress that comes with speaking animatedly into one of these for 12 of the 24 hours in the day, so I’ll never really know which is the most durable or comfortable for long periods. That said, there are a huge amount of different headsets out there, so you can find one to appeal to just about every kind of need; from the subtle and lightweight ones to those that simply sit in a dock in your car, for example, to be grabbed when the phone just happens to go off while driving. Check out our favorite bluetooth headsets below, then feel free to suggest some of your own in the comments section!

4. Motorola HK250 ($29.99)

Motorola-HK250-Universal-Bluetooth-Headset

Another nice and affordable option, the HK250 from Motorola represents really the bottom of their line but still comes with a standard that will compete with many of the other more expensive headsets. The most impressive thing about this small and subtle headset is its range, which comes in at around 300 feet so you will be able to roam about the office even if your Android smartphone remains behind on your desk. The A2DP technology included here also allows you to stream things through your headset, such as music and navigation directions, which is great when on the go. – Buy from Amazon

3. Plantronics M165 ($40.17)

Plantronics M165

Another Plantronics item and another great headset: the M165 lacks the frills of the Voyager Legend, which we will be coming to shortly, but is a nice and subtle option and one that comes at an affordable price. The headset has a long enough battery life at 7 hours to last an entire working day, and the noise cancellation qualities represent some of the best around. It also has a voice recognition feature, which allows you to manage calls hands free simply by saying Answer or Ignore. This is of course absolutely essential when driving! – Buy from Amazon

2. Jawbone ERA ($56.99)

Jawbone ERA

The Jawbone ERA is a simpler option than the ICON HD, but that’s not to say it is lacking when it omes to noise cancellation qualities and of course the kind of sound you get. As we metioned before, Jawbone are renowned for their affordable activity trackers, and the ERA comes in at just over $50 which isn’t expensive but isn’t exactly cheap. The real reason that this headset can be classed as one of the best is because it represents the company’s smallest and lightest headset yet, and we at Top 8 have failed to find another that matches it in this area. It is so subtle that you don’t even notice it’s in there, but still boasts an impressive 33 feet of range and a decent 4 hours of talk time when it comes to battery life. – Buy from Amazon

1. Plantronics Voyager Legend ($78.04)

Plantronics Voyager Legend

Once all the dust has settled, there often appears to be one headset that stands over the rest – as has been proven already on countless lists across the web, and as is also the case here. The Plantronics Voyager Legend tells pretty much all there is to tell through its name alone, but I’ll go ahead and elaborate. As bluetooth headsets go, this has to be one of the more durable options out there as it is also water resistant, but is also one of the more comfortable and ergonomic options you will find. It comes in as the second most expensive headset on our list, but there’s a reason for that as the four star average rating on Amazon will attest to. It’s not as small as some of the other headsets we’ve mentioned here, but it’s also one of the best at cancelling out all that unwanted noise.  – Buy from Amazon
