Best budget Bluetooth headset?

Bharati M

Ques. 1)iBall BTM-72 In-the-ear Headset 
2)Samsung BHM1100NBEGINU In-the-ear Headset 
3)Nokia BH-108. 
which among these is compatible with both NOKIA X2-01 and NOKIA LUMIA 720?? 
Which among the above is better to buy?? 

Ans.  Out of the above three, go for the nokia BH-108, it is good. It will be compatible with both your phones. Also none of the above three would be able to play music as they do not A2DP bluetooth profile. These headsets are strictly for talking over the phone only. 


  1. Thanks Tantrik baba. but just one more query. If i have to choose between iBall BTM-72 In-the-ear Headset and Samsung BHM1100NBEGINU In-the-ear Headset, then which one is better and compatible with Nokia X2-01 and Lumia 720???

  2. both will work without any problems :)

    so basically, any bluetooth headset with lower bluetooth version (eg. 2.0) will work with a device with same or higher bluetooth version (eg. 3.0, 2.1, 3.0) and not with lower versions. am i right??

    1. Yes, because newer Bluetooth versions are backwards compatible. Same is also true for USB 2.0, 3.0 and also HDMI versions. Even vice versa is true for most cases like usb, but not sure about Bluetooth. For example you can use a usb 2.0 pen drive in usb 1.1 port but the transfer speed will be less. We have tested many Bluetooth headsets with nokia devices and all of them work just fine.

      Thanks a lot. just last one.... if choice between Nokia BH-108 and BH-110, then which is good??

    3. Go for the bh110, it will give you a better battery life, good range and can play music too(although sound output won't be great like wired headphones.)

    Is bh110 compatible with the Nokkia X2-01 and also Lumia 720?

  5. Will work with both...

  6. Some of the headsets will give good sound quality within the specified range while certain others will not have proper sound even in within its range. You can also see whether the headset you are selecting is having two-way same sound quality or not.

    Certain headsets would give you clear sound when on your side but on the caller’s side the voice quality would differ. Also echo issues come with some of the headsets.

    Ensure that you buy only the best as sound quality would always be the top concern. Latestone.com and other online sellers will have customer reviews that would guide you further.
