This headset works wirelessly with Bluetooth so you can easily pair it with any tablet or smartphone. The unusual design clips around your neck for maximum comfort and you can forget you are even wearing it. The ear buds snap magnetically into place when they are not in use and you’ll find handy music controls on the neck strap so they’re always accessible. The headset also doubles up as a hands-free device for incoming calls or texts. With the free BT Reader app for Android you can actually have your incoming texts read aloud to you in real time.
The sound quality is good and there is noise suppression and echo cancellation to enhance it. As it is wireless the headset does need to be charged, but you‘ll get 10 hours of talk time and 15 days of standby from a single charge. The LG Tone Wireless Stereo Headset is usually $70, but if you shop around you’ll find it a lot cheaper than that.
