Here Are The Top 10 Best Stereo Headsets As Of January, 2019
Stereo Bluetooth headphones (headsets with two earpieces) generally come in two wearing styles: over-the-head or behind-the-neck - some models even come with both wearing styles -- but rarely do they come as in-ear Bluetooth earsets. A few of the Bluetooth stereo headset models shown here are even foldable (and unfolding them turns them on).
Stereo headsets are generally used as headphones for music listening but can also serve for a cell phone (provided they include a microphone), especially if you happen to also be a music lover.
