The Best Long Range Wireless Headsets | Headset Advisor

Choosing the best long range wireless headset for your business depends what devices you need connectivity to.

For anyone connecting to a desk phone or computer with the longest range, you'll want a headset that operates on DECT technology, not Bluetooth.

Bluetooth headsets are typically best made for cell phones.

Both technologies are wireless but have different advantages and disadvantages. 

DECT wireless headsets will always give you the longest range compared to a Bluetooth model.

That being said, the next question you want to ask yourself is what wearing style do you prefer? Some prefer a headband option whereas others prefer an earpiece.

From our experience of working with headsets for almost 3 decades, we've had the chance to test just about every long range wireless headset you can think of.

What we found is no matter the headset manufacture, just about every DECT wireless headset model provides around the same headset range (some claim 590 feet, others 350 etc..).

In a typical office setting you will get about 180 feet. In an open office setting, you can expect maybe double that. The more barriers you go through the less range you will get.

Bluetooth Headsets vs RF Headsets

What is an RF headset (AKA DECT)?

RF stands for radio frequency. These type of headsets use an antenna then an electromagnetic field is generated that can be used for communications.

What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a technology that allows different types of equipment from various manufactures to enable communications without the use of wires. In the mobile phone market Bluetooth headsets are common to connect with a mobile phone and give you hands free wireless freedom.

With Bluetooth there's different classes that provide different range.

  • Class 1 about 300 feet
  • Class 2 about 33 feet (most common)
  • Class 3 about 3 feet

Whether you choose an RF or Bluetooth headset both are safe when it comes to any sort of radiation. Both technologies use radio signals 1000 times weaker than standard wireless technologies.

That being said although both are safe, RF headsets that operate one DECT will be more secure when it comes to anyone trying to eavesdrop on your phone calls as the signal is separate to most other devices and the signal is constantly changing.
