How to Choose the Right Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit

Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit
So, you've decided to invest in a mobile hands free car kit and you've realised you can't go past a bluetooth model. Not only are these more reliable, higher quality and safer, but there's such an extensive range to choose from...which can be daunting if you don;t know what you're looking for or what's right for you.

Here's a guide to choosing the right car kit for your needs, and a few tips on what you should consider...


Bluetooth car kits can range quite a lot in cost, depending on the kind of features you require or the type of brand that it is. Obviously your biggest limitation will be how much you are willing or able to pay for the technology, so think about how much you want to spend. A good piece of advice to keep in mind, however, is that a little extra money could get you a warranty or something with a longer shelf-life--not to mention the money it could save you in fines--talking on a mobile phone without hands-free can result in a hefty payment to the boys and girls in blue!

Sound Quality

You're looking for two things when it comes to sound quality, the quality of the speakers that feed the other person's voice to you, and the quality of the pickup that feeds your voice to the other person. It can obviously be problematic to test this out in the shop (most store clerks are slightly unwilling to let you run out to the car-park and give it a whirl calling mum!) but I'd suggest once you've got your shortlist, going online and reading reviews of what consumers are saying, especially in regards to things like sound quality.

Noise Reduction

Ah the blessed noise of a truck's compression breaks right when you're in the middle of negotiating a major deal for your business! There's nothing as distracting as the background noise that comes with being on the open road, so if you're going to be making important business calls then ANR (Active Noise Reduction) might be something you want to consider. The technology helps reduce ambient noise from your surroundings and you may just be able to fool your boss into thinking you're working late in the office instead of driving the kids to soccer!

Choosing a bluetooth hands free car kit is an investment in you and your family's safety, first and foremost, but it can also save you precious time and make you more efficient in your job and personal life. Something to talk to your accountant about is whether or not you can claim tax back on a car kit if you're using it for work calls, but either way, the bluetooth will pay for itself in no time in peace of mind and productivity.
