These 2 types of headphones can be offered in foldable or non-folding models.

Portable accessories: hands-free kit and car

Hands-free headsets are becoming indispensable when talking in the car or other places. The hands-free kit can use either a cable or a Bluetooth connection.

Car kits use your vehicle’s battery as well as the antenna and speakers to improve the quality of communication. Other car kits only have a charger and a hands-free kit.

Bluetooth headsets are very popular because they can be used in the car, but also in any place (walking, cycling, bus, public places …). There are many models, the priorities of choice being:

– the quality of the sound;

– the comfort of use;

– the autonomy of the headset.

The speaker

An external speaker will allow you to benefit from the better sound quality. It can be used in the car or at the office and can be integrated into a docking station for extended functionality.

Portable accessories: docking station

The docking station is an accessory that allows you to:

– charge the phone;

– synchronize the phone with other audio/video equipment (hi-fi system, home cinema, television, etc.);

– listen to music on the built-in speakers (for models with speakers).

Good to know: when buying a docking station, you should be very careful about whether it is compatible with your phone. For example, some models are only available for iPhone.
