Bluetooth Headphones for Wireless Music Listening

3 Bluetooth headphones main 1

One of the biggest hassles of headphones is the wire. Wires tangles, fray or just generally get in the way. Headphone wires are especially a nuisance when you’re trying to be active while listening to music from your smart phone.

All of the above is why we love wireless Bluetooth headphones. What is Bluetooth? It’s a wireless communication technology used to link two devices, most commonly used for audio applications (headphones, Bluetooth speakers and wireless phone earpieces). A newer version of Bluetooth can also be used for some smart home applications. It’s a low power technology, though Bluetooth headphones do require a battery (usually a built-in rechargeable battery). Using the Bluetooth connection built into your smart phone or tablet, you can easily sync your headphones and not worry about dangling wires.

Here are some Bluetooth headphones for you to consider:
