I have been running and working out for many years now and since the advent of portable electronic devices, the one pet peeve that I’ve had is that I have never really found a set of headphones that will work properly once I’ve started to sweat during the workout. Apple’s earbuds or any major brand in-ear headphones always seem to have the same issue; sooner or later my sweat will cause one side or the other of the in-ear headphone to stop working properly until I’ve dried it out. So when BlueAnt said that they had a waterproof bluetooth headphone, I knew that I had to give them a try.

Just in case you live somewhere in the US where the law concerning the use of cell phones while operating a motor vehicle hasn’t been changed yet, you can expect that the days of holding your cell phone while you’re driving are probably going to be coming to an end soon. Between the push of concerned groups and the studies documenting the incidences of serious injuries and death because the driver was busy on the phone and not really paying attention to what they were doing, mainly driving a car, states and localities are requiring the use of hands-free devices for use when driving a car.

The question that one has to ask themselves is what type of hands-free device am I going to use. An earpiece, something along the lines of Apple’s earbuds, or something a bit more capable than that? BlueAnt may just have the answer to the question.

BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Bluetooth headset – Review

While I’ve long been a cellphone user, I’ve never taken to using a Bluetooth headset. Each time I see a person with one stuck in an ear, my first reaction is that they have some horrible growth on the side of their head, and why don’t they get it surgically removed. However, the Weeks Division of MyMac Labs recently received an evaluation unit of BlueAnt’s V1 Voice Control headset. I swallowed my fashion concerns, and gave the V1 a try during a four-day business trip.

BlueAnt touts the V1 as the world’s first voice controlled Bluetooth headset. While I take any such “world’s first” claims with more than a pinch of salt, BlueAnt has created a fairly good Bluetooth headset.
