A few months ago, we presented a buyers guide for new bluetooth headsets for truck drivers in case some of you hadn’t upgraded your equipment to comply with the new hands on cell phone ban. It was popular, but we also noticed that many of you truckers had quite a few positive things to say about the Blue Parrot headset. It continually garnered more positive comments than any other bluetooth headset we featured, by nearly 3 to 1.
So in the interest of investigating things our truck driver advisors and our readership seem to agree on, we wanted to post up a closer look at this excellent quality headset.
The first thing most truck drivers tell us about the Blue Parrot is simple: it allows them to hear what people are saying, and what they’re saying back to people. The patented noise cancellation incorporated into the B250 – XT model is superb.
Second, the Blue Parrot headset fits comfortably and doesn’t cause as much ear fatigue as many in-ear designs. The concave ear cushion helps block out the sounds around you so you can hear your caller better. It also comes with an optional leatherette ear cushion. The over-the-head styling is stable, lightweight and comfortable.
Third, the B250 – XT line of headsets are made of top-shelf components, so they last well past their warranties and most likely your expectations. Some truck drivers have used theirs for nearly 4 years without issue. But the real telltale comment about the quality of this headset is how many truckers told us that even if their Blue Parrot B250 – XT models broke, they would buy a replacement B250 immediately.
Here are some of the standard features of the BlueParrot B250 – XT:
• 16 hours of talk time on a single charge.
• 150 hours standby time.
• Patented Xtreme Noise Suppression technology blocks out background noise of a roaring 18-wheeler!
• Stable over-the-head design.
• Pairing, mute and volume controls.
• Includes DC (vehicle) and AC (home) adapter charging cords.
• Will not feed back when used with most hearing aids.
• One-year limited warranty
• Compatible with Bluetooth-enabled computers
