These days, picking one of the best wireless mono headsets in 2019 for your phone can be a daunting task. The options available are almost infinite. You have noise canceling headsets, you have voice-controlled earpieces, NFC-powered devices, and so many more.
I tend to have a few different devices to fit each of my individual needs. If I’m hopping on a flight, I’ll favor noise canceling. If I’m choosing my companion for my daily commute, I might go with a voice-controlled device so I can drive safely without a hitch.
Whatever your needs are, I assure you the list below fits them all. Review carefully each device and make sure you pick the right product for your lifestyle.
This is our take on the five best wireless mono headsets in 2019:
1.VXi BlueParrott B450-XT review
The VXi BlueParrott B450-XT is the best noise canceling Bluetooth headset for mobile devices that I have ever used.
It weighs about 148 grams and is approximately 23 cm in height and 17.5 cm in width. The earpiece is able to connect to your device from up to 90 meters and the battery lasts up to 24 hours call time and 500 hours standby. To ease the pairing struggle, the B450-XT comes with an internal NFC (Near Field Communications) which allows you to quickly pair up with just the press of a button. The headset can also be used while charging, making it even more worthy of the title best wireless mono headsets in 2019.
The B450-XT comes with a large cup which completely covers the ear and isolates from any noises. A second microphone in the device is responsible for bringing you excellent noise cancellation while talking. Compared to other headsets, the B450-XT gives you the freedom to reach high volumes for a Bluetooth speaker, enough to even make your ear hurt if used for prolonged periods of time.
The device comes with an app, which is available for both Android and iOS. ‘BlueParrott Push to Talk’ app which allows you to do create a voice memo, putting the headphones in walkie-talkie mode and even changing the settings of its multi-function button.
2. Mpow v4.1 Review
The Mpow v4.1 BlueTooth headset provides with advanced undirectional 4x noise-canceling technology, removing almost completely undesired noise around you, provides a crisp clear Hi-Fi audio to both participants in the call.
The headset comes with BlueTooth v4.1, giving you an even better audio quality and about 10-11 meters of connection range, allowing you to connect to 2 devices simultaneously. The Mpow v4.1 is built by lightweight materials, thus making it 3 times lighter than the B450-XT – 50 grams. Compared to the B450-XT, the earcup is made out of smaller, skin-friendly material. The built-in voice control helps you quickly respond to any calls throughout the day and a voice warning will notify you about low battery among other things. In fact, the headset was so comfortable and convenient that I had forgotten I’m wearing it for a whole day!
A single 2 hours charge usually gets me around 13-14 hours of on-call time or about 11-12 hours of music streaming. On standby, the battery lasts about 160 hours.
3. Plantronics Voyager Legend review
When it comes to in-ear Bluetooth headsets, the Plantronics Voyager Legend ranks at #1 in my collection. The material it is built from is soft and feels natural, which is also contributed to by its weight — 18 grams.
The battery life of the Voyager lasts me for about 7-8 hours of call time and can last up to 11 days on standby. Charging the device is rather easy and quick because it has a magnetic, snap-fit connection that also allows the device to be moisture-proof and dustproof.
The device is equipped with 3 microphones working in synergy to bring you an excellent noise cancellation even in the noisiest places and provide amazing audio quality. One of the best features that I love about this product is its voice control option. Some of the commands that are available are ‘answer’, ‘reject’, ‘call back’, ‘check battery’, ‘pair mode’, among others.
All of this makes the Plantronics Voyager Legend one of the best hands-free devices out there.
4. COMEXION Bluetooth Headset review
The Comexion Bluetooth Headset is another great earpiece that suits my needs.
The headset comes with a high-end carrying case, in which you will also find your 2 extra, differently sized ear tips. The headset is ultralight, weighing only about 12 grams which makes it very comfortable to wear.
The earpiece is equipped with a battery that withstands about 8 hours of call time, 6-7 hours of music time and up to 180 hours in standby mode. When it comes to recharging, the headset takes about 1-2 hours to fill up its batteries.
Built-in voice commands support gives you the ability to answer, reject and end calls, as well as redial the last caller. The Comexion Bluetooth headset comes with Bluetooth v4.1 that allows you a connection range up to 11 meters. You will be notified via a voice prompt – ‘Disconnected’. Upon entering the range in which the headset works, it will automatically reconnect to your mobile device.
5. HonShoop SPOON B1 review
And last, but definitely not the least on our list of the five best mono wireless headsets in 2019 is the HanShoop SPOON B1 headset. Although wearing it feels a bit tight for my small ears, the audio and build quality this easily-affordable earpiece delivers are one of the best I’ve seen on the market.
The integrated BlueTooth v4.1 (4.2) gives you the ability to connect to 2 devices concurrently and about 10-11 meters of a connection range. The SPOON B1 comes with a dynamic speaker and an advanced Omni-directional microphone thus providing you with excellent audio quality on both ends of the call.
The earpiece is ultralight with a weight of about 15 grams, wearing it feels natural. Charging it takes me about an hour and a half and can get me through about 8 to 9 hours of call time, and about 8 days, while in standby mode. The SPOON B1 works flawlessly with the assistants Google Voice Assistant, Siri and Cortana.
It’s as I told you in the beginning — there are devices for all sorts of needs. If you can afford to own them all, why not go for it? They might look similar yet they couldn’t be more different from one another.
Investing in a good headset will bring you benefits on all fronts — health, financial, life quality. You will want to choose a device which you can rely on for a very long time. There’s nothing more frustrating than getting your brand new headset ruined within a matter of weeks.
Whether you’re traveling or just taking a stroll along the beach, the devices on this list are sure to help you find the sound you’re looking for.
