There's no denying that headsets have changed a lot over the years, and one of those changes is business headsets are now being used with computers, and the main connection is done through the use of a USB Adapter/dongle.
These are small devices that are small enough, and portable enough, to make them an easy target for being misplaced or lost. So, if that were to happen to you, would you find yourself asking the question; "should I replace the USB Adapter, or should I just connect my headset to my computer using Bluetooth?" Before you make a quick decision, you might want to read a little further here, or have a listen to this podcast. That's because there's a little more going on beneath the surface that you should really know about.
Take for example, that when you connect using Bluetooth, you may find a few areas less efficient compared to when you were using that USB Adapter.
Most computers these days are Bluetooth enabled, but that doesn't mean they all are. And, if you happen to be using one that's not, then you can forget making any wireless connection to it. Instead, you may be left in a position where you can't use it with your computer at all, or, with some models, you might have the option to use it with a USB cable. But, when you do that, you're now using a wireless headset as a wired one. Not a huge amount of sense in that I don't think.
USB adapters are typically replaceable, and are priced in the neighborhood of $30.00 or so on the low end, and around $100.00 on the high side. So, depending on your make and model, the chances are good that you'll be paying somewhere around $50.00 or so. So the question you have to ask yourself is, is it worth it?
Well, what's a better connection, better audio quality, longer wireless range, and being able to take calls when you're away from your desk worth? To me, those things are worth every penny of the price. But again, that's a decision you'll have to make.
