You've probably seen hundreds of them -- people walking around with a little flashing doohickey stuck to their ears, having an in-depth conversation with someone who remains unseen. They're taking advantage of Bluetooth headsets that allow them to use their cell phones hands free. In this review, we're going to be taking a look at the Soyo FreeStyler 600 Bluetooth headset, and see how it can free you.
When the cell phone revolution hit the world by storm, you couldn't walk around without running into people with a cell phone stuck to the side of their head. But since we are always striving for something better, next came wired headsets. Suddenly, a large percentage of cell phone users were walking around with their cell phones at their hips, and a wire running up to their ear. This took a little getting used to, since seeing someone having an animated conversation with themselves for the first time was odd enough to keep you from noticing the wire running up to their ear.
Once we began to recognize the wired headset as a plausible explanation for apparent schizophrenia, along came wireless headsets. Now when we see someone engaged in a seemingly imaginary conversation, we have to slowly circle around them to see if they have a small flashing device attached to one of their ears.
Bluetooth is a fascinating technology. At its root, Bluetooth is a specification for wireless personal area networks (PANs). What this basically means is that Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency. Pretty cool stuff, huh?
In today's world, we are starting to see more and more devices interfacing on one level or another, and cell phones are a prime example. We have all kinds of devices that connect to our phones, from headsets to automobiles. Yes, I have a friend with a new Honda, and the vehicle automatically pairs to his phone whenever he gets in his car. Phone calls are automatically answered by the car in hands-free mode.
Today we will be reviewing the Soyo FreeStyler 600 Bluetooth Headset, designed to operate as a hands-free headset for your cell phone, PDA, or computer. According to Soyo's website:
