As the world of electronics continue to evolve things get much better for the consumer. It used to require a cord that attached into your device, which had to be within a few feet of you to listen to music.

There was the issue of the cords getting tangled in whatever you were doing and they were generally just a pain in the butt for most people but an annoyance that we dealt with because there were no options.

Today the Bluetooth Stereo Headset is on the scene and the audiophile has a new way to enjoy music without the need to be physically wired into the device.

Bluetooth in general and the Bluetooth Stereo Headset in particular allow the individual to get pristine and crisp signal from the device tin to a little headset that is unobtrusively set into the ear of the listener.

The device has a decent range so you are no longer required to be at arms length from the device that is being used. In fact not only can you be a ways away from it, but several people can now use the same transmission and listed to it with their own head sets.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset is great to have when traveling with the kids in the car because they can all listen to the same movie at the volume level that they each prefer without bothering mom and day as they drive.

This means that the trip can be much more enjoyable for the parents and the children alike so everyone is more likely to arrive fresh and in a better frame of mind.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset can be used on most any device that has a regular stereo headset jack from walkman type devices to the car stereo to the portable DVD player and even most cellular phones and PDA units on the market today.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset is a fairly inexpensive add on device which can be picked up at any place from the mega electronics specialty stores to the super big box retailers and is basically a plug and play type unit that requires no extremely special or tedious work to be made functional.

A decent Bluetooth Stereo Headset is a great addition to anyone persons personal audio toolbox and one that, if you use headphones at all, you will not regret at any point after the initial purchase.

It will give you a lot of enjoyable audio for a reasonable price and I wager that any time you put it on and tune the music in and the world out you will thank the inventor for the great addition and the fantastic sound and lack of cords to get in the way of your activity.

Synchronizing your devices to your laptop or desktop can be a labor in its self. Having to connect the cables from the device you need synched to the computer can be a problem.

Some cables do not fit the connection ports on computers, requiring you find a new cable that matches both the device and the computer. However, there is a way to get around this problem.

The Bluetooth USB Dongle allows you synchronize your Bluetooth capable devices, like PDA’s, with your computers.



This can give you access to the internet through your computer without needing internet on your cell phone, as well as connect you computer to the internet through your phone if your phone has internet and your computer does not. This is also helpful for many other functions, and using the Bluetooth USB Dongle is simple.

Most Bluetooth Dongles are small and can be connected into any standard USB port. Once you have connected the Dongle, start your computer and the “New Hardware Wizard” will appear.

Simply start the process of adding the new hardware drivers, and you will see a “Bluetooth devices” icon appear in in the taskbar. Simply right-click the icon and select “Add a Bluetooth Device”. Turn on the Bluetooth Dongle and select the discoverable icon.

Once the system locates the Bluetooth USB Dongle, it will ask you for the passkey, which may depend solely on the device you are connecting. Some devices do not require a passkey. Once you have passed this step, you can select “Finish” and it will exit the “Add Device Hardware” Wizard.

Most newer laptops already have the capability to connect to a Bluetooth device, however, for the older models that lack this ability, the Bluetooth USB Dongle is an excellent addition to your computer system. This connection will allow you perform tasks on your computer through your Bluetooth device.

If you need information from you address book in your cell phone, but you are on a call on the cell phone, you can connect to the phone through the Bluetooth USB Dongle and access the address book. There are also many other uses for the Bluetooth USB Dongle that include exchanges of data and audio files through wireless connection.

Much like most electronics, the Bluetooth USB Dongle is not limited to one manufacturer. Some of the more popular manufacturers include Interlink Electronics Nano, IOGEAR, as well as Targus and ASUS.

Most of these devices are the size of thumb drives, while others are as small as a quarter. Finding Bluetooth USB Dongles are not difficult. Most electronics retailers can supply them, however, online market places, like Amazon can ship them directly to your home.
