* What’s the difference between WATERPROOF and WATER-RESISTANT?

Buying tips: What’s your budget?

While talking to one of my friends (a seasoned waterproof Bluetooth headphones retailer) from Buenos Aires, he told me that a common phrase when buying Bluetooth devices is B.B.B., which means Bonito, y Barato in Buenos – for those of us who speak English only, it means good, nice and cheap.

However, I have been reviewing waterproof Bluetooth headsets for years now, and I can confidently tell you that B.B.B. is hard to get with the modern crop of Bluetooth devices. If you want to buy a good headset, you will have to set aside a good budget for it. But it is also possible to make some compromises and get something that is decent, nice and affordable.

Consider battery life:

Sellers touted standby and talk-time battery life can vary widely. To get a good waterproof Bluetooth headphone, look for a minimum of 5-6 hours of talk time. For some high end models, advertised talk talk-time battery life goes up to as high as 10-40 hours, all thanks to larger batteries. I don’t have a way to genuinely test manufactures claims, but 5-6 hours are realistic.

Headsets: What’s your type, In-ear or Ear-hook?

It is hard to tell exactly what will feel comfortable until you try both of them. However, ear-hooks are more stable and comfortable over long hours of use. But if you put on glasses, have long hair, or you love wearing dangling earrings – all perhaps all of these – ear-hooks can be a pain as any of these can get tangled with the hook.

In such cases, in-ear models that go straight into your ear tunnel are a great purchase. They are also other practical consideration if you are the kind of person who will pop a headset on and off a dozen times a day. Hook-less waterproof Bluetooth models are easier to put on and take off. There is no multiple hand work or clip jockeying required. On the contrary, if you plan to have the headset in your ears for long periods of time, an ear-hook may be a better option, since it is likely to fit in more securely.
