BlueParrott B150-TK headset for distance drivers

BlueParrott B150-TK

Long-distance truck drivers almost certainly need Bluetooth headsets more than most others. While for office workers a cordless headset is more a matter of convenience, for truckers the ability to take a phone call on the road is often the only opportunity to speak with non-truckers (often family and friends) before the next stop. BlueParrott says its B150 headset, now rechristened the B150-TK, is designed to be as helpful as possible to truckers as well as anyone who spends many hours on the road. The adjustable boom microphone has active noise cancelling to reduce the intrusion of engine noises and the other loud noises that typically permeate a truck cabin. It also uses a more conventional headband instead of the smaller (but less reliable) single-piece design of so many other headsets. A 12-volt vehicle charger is bundled with the B150 so it will remain powered regardless of how long the trip may be. BlueParrott says it's available immediately for $125.
