Choosing the best mini headset for your handheld device or even for a larger system in the home can be intimidating, given the range of models and designs on the market today.

The size and fit of the mini headset is also very important. Ideally, you want something that is lightweight and easy to carry along whenever you leave the house. At the same time, the fit must be comfortable, with the ear buds fitting comfortably in your ears and not slipping out of place while you walk or jog.

Quality is another important consideration when choosing a mini headset. Keep in mind that price does not necessarily mean quality, in that there are a number of high-quality headsets on the market that come with a modest price tag. Even if the budget is tight, you don't have to be stuck with mini headset options that are cheaply made and provide poor sound. Take some time to check into consumer reports on the sets that attract your attention and are in your price range. If in doubt, ask some friends who also use headsets frequently and get their opinions. With a little research, you can find a headset that fits just right, works with all your devices, and comes at a price that is easily affordable.
