Hands-On Review: Enzatec Bluetooth Stereo Headphone

Being the cellphone-centric techies that we are, it’s easy to forget that “Bluetooth headset” doesn’t automatically mean “that little dingus hanging out of your ear that makes you look like you were assimilated into the Borg Collective.”¬† Case in point: this slick stereo headset/microphone combo, the Enzatec BT-501.¬† This US$43.00 beauty is fully Bluetooth Version: V2.1+EDR compliant, features long talk and standby times (8/160 hrs., respectively) on a fully-charged battery, and excellent audio throughout.¬† There are handy on-earpiece controls for volume and playback, too.

The rear-facing head strap — which winds up resting, not on top of your head, but on the back of your neck — is surprisingly comfortable, although it may take a bit of getting used to (and doesn’t work all that well if you’re lying down). We also had difficulty using it with multiple devices, requiring constant re-pairings; obviously, dedicating the phones to just one device eliminates this problem.¬† Those minor niggles aside, we liked the BT-501’s a lot.
