Hands-on with the Outdoor Technology Bluetooth Tags wireless headset

Summary: There are a number of Bluetooth wireless headset available today and Outdoor Technology delivers the Bluetooth Tags with quality construction, good sound quality, and a design that makes it easy to let them rest around your neck when not actively in use. They came up with the name from the "dog tag" way that the earpieces hang down from your neck.

  • The headset folds up to a small footprint. The cable connecting the two pieces is a durable braided wire that is about 32 inch in length.

  • The two earbud ends might appear a bit large, but the plastic is durable and lightweight so you really cannot even tell they are in your ears.

  • The manual is a simple two-sided piece of durable plastic coated paper that clearly describes all the functions and operations of the headset.

    These things look awkward as hell.

  • I hate "earbuds"...have much better type of headphones.

    I hate "earbuds". They get very painful after a short time. I have a much better bluetooth headset that is very similar in layout to this one, but has hooks to hang over the ear, and 1" diameter "earmuffs" for the sound. Very comfortable, good sound, no cords to tangle (there's enough to reach between them plus a bit, but there's a little grommet-like thing on the cord to snug it up as much as you want), and the battery lasts longer than my MP3 player's. Unlike the rigid headband type, these fit in any pocket when not in use. No idea why they aren't more common...I won't use any other type.

      @plonk@... what's the brand/model for those you're using? Are they phone compatible (do they have a mic?).

      Cheers
