Multipoint Bluetooth Headsets

In this post I rounded up top multipoint Bluetooth headsets – not earbuds and headphones come with headset function. So all these Bluetooth headsets are merely for calls and they are worn on just one side, also called mono headsets.

What’s multipoint Bluetooth headset?

Multipoint feature allows Bluetooth headset to connect with two devices – two phones, laptop and phone, phone and tablet at once. But this doesn’t mean the headset will work with two devices simultaneously – when you answer a call from either devices the headset will be connected with the device receives that call. This comes handy when you have to switch back and forth between devices.

This is a built-in function of Bluetooth chipset with system on a chip (SoC).
