Bluetooth Headset Which Mutes Calls
December 21, 2013 8:41 PM   Subscribe

Is there a reasonably priced (<$50) bluetooth headset for Android (HTC One) that can mute calls? I've done a healthy amount of research & I'm not sure why what seems like such an obvious feature is so curiously difficult to find.

Motorola's Oasis has a dedicated mute button.

But I think most Bluetooth earpieces do mute with some combination of holding the volume or call button. It's just that most don't have a dedicated button.

Thanks - I just don't want to buy one and it doesn't, because I need it for conference calls. As you note Motorola - and Jabra - definitely make them, but they're out of my price range.

(The Motorola I linked is $60.)

The model I'd recommend is about $80, but is AMAZING, so memail me if you want it.

My other suggestion is to look at models in your price range, then search for the user manual online. Every headset I've had a. has had mute functionality, and b. has had the instructions online somewhere. That way you can check whatever model you like and confirm that it has it.

Aw yiss: Jabra TALK mutes if you press the volume buttons together. Thanks!

Maybe out of your price range, but the motorola elite sliver is great with a mute button on the piece and a carrying case that packs another 10 hours of battery.
