While the world may seem a rather gloomy place at the moment, technology marches on.  Although we may not have the same cash to spend on all of those delicious little gadgets out there, there are occasions when something so tasty arrives on the scene it is permissable to live on canned ravioli for a week in order to afford it.

I hate to break it to you, but the Jabra JX10 bluetooth headset (with hub) is one of those things for which it’s worth sacrificing your digestive health. 

Using a phone, whether it’s a corded home phone or your mobile, will never again be the same with this baby.  Gone are the days of Jabra bulkiness; instead say hello to a rather sexy little number designed by Danish designer Jacob Jensen, famous for designing the magnificently stylish Bang & Olufsen audio range.  And while this honey of a bluetooth headset has the looks, it offers much more than just a pretty exterior…as we’ll soon discover.

Talking to yourself is no longer a sure sign of insanity. In fact, on busy city streets all over the globe it is commonplace to see men in suits yapping away to no one in particular. Or teenagers walking side-by-side, talking — but not to each other. No, we are living in a new age — the Bluetooth Age.

Smaller and smaller these devices get with each new release — and with clearer sound and more hands-free features. One brand that long predates the invention of wireless Bluetooth technology, but is synonymous with superior sound performance is Sennheiser.

While headsets generally serve the same purpose, no two people are the same.  Thankfully there are a variety of styles available that allow everyone to enjoy their own level of comfort.

Monaural Headsets

Monaural headsets are usually less expensive as they only deliver sound through a single speaker to one ear.  This style is popular in the work setting as it allows you to hear the person on the phone and what’s going on around you.

Binaural Headsets

Opposed to the single-eared deliverance provided by a monaural headset, a binaural headset delivers audio through speakers on both sides of your head.  This results in a clearer reception and better isolation as background noise is filtered out.  Binaural headsets are suited for those who need to focus strictly on the call.
