It’s that time of year, well, my favorite time of the year. You know, when I get to stock up on all the tech I want as I shop for holiday presents for family and friends. It often goes down a little like this: A gift for mom and one for me. A gift for dad and one for me. A gift for sis and one for me. This always works best when I have a list.

So here is the list. Oh, in the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve already started shopping.


LG HBS-730 Bluetooth Stereo Dual-Device Headsets

This is the device everyone should have and not just because hands free mobile is a requirement for Maryland drivers. This headset has two important features. It lets you hear music and conversation in stereo and it connects with two devices at the same time.

Do you carry a personal and a work mobile phone? Do you prefer listening to your music on your iPod? If so, this is the headset you need. It allows answering calls on both and can automatically pause your music if a call is answered. There are also audio prompts for battery strength and device connection status.

I owned an earlier model, and loved it. It was used, daily, during exercise, driving, even in bed, until I wore it out. I upgraded under duress, but so far, I haven’t been disappointed.

Pros:
• Easy to use controls
• Slick, eye-catching design
• Lightweight and comfortable

Cons:
• The bluetooth range is less than 30 feet
• The magnetized earbud holders don’t secure the earbuds
• It can get tangled in jackets, scarves and hair easily
