Not only was the audio quality of the caller perfect in our tests, but the noise cancellation was exceptional. Many of the digital signal processors can make your voice sound like you're underwater when it filters out background noises, but the Reveal consistently blocked out the background noise while leaving the voice clear. No matter where you are, your caller will think you're in a quiet room.
Our second choice, the Jawbone Era, also provides exceptional stability, with the best concha-fin earbud on the market. The call quality doesn't match the Legend, but it still provides high-end audio performance. The Plantronics Voyager Legend, a newcomer to the Bluetooth headset market, also performed exceptionally well in all categories, though the noise cancellation is only average.
While the voice quality test showed that most of the headsets provide excellent voice quality, the noise reduction test showed a lot more disparity in the call quality of the Bluetooth headsets we reviewed. While some headsets proved to be capable of removing almost all of the background noises, other headsets barely performed better than the 50 percent baseline score we got when speaking directly into the phone. If you don't like repeating yourself, you should pick a headset with a score of 90 percent or higher.
