Are you the type to sacrifice a bit of quality for some wireless and ergonomic convenience? Then you're also probably using a bluetooth headset for your daily calls and gaming voice comms. I just recently switched myself to try that kind of setup, and here's one of the best products I could find under a thousand pesos- the Mi Bluetooth Headset Youth Edition!

Mi or Xiaomi, is well-known for its quality products that sell for very affordable prices so it comes to no surprise that even their bluetooth headsets would also pack a punch.

I purchased the Mi Bluetooth Headset Youth Edition on Lazada for P629 and got it three days after ordering. The seller was Mi Home PH and they had 88% positive rating in the site when I ordered.

Long story short I like it and hence, I recommend it. It's compact and has a solid build- the matte finish on the plastic also gives it a premium feel. It's easy to use with it's three buttons, and surprisingly, as mentioned earlier, you can also do a lot of things with just those three buttons.

I am able to use it on both my daily phone calls and online calls like on Facebook. It's also what I use for voice comms when gaming with my friends. The quality is very good. But by saying quality, I should clarify first that with it being a bluetooth headset with a microphone, which means the hardware is designed to optimize quality for both the earpiece and microphone, you probably should not expect it to be near the sound quality of bluetooth headsets designed for listening only. It's apples and oranges.

As a bluetooth headset with a microphone, I can vouch for its good quality considering how much it cost. Some brands that even sell for twice its price are even worse. I can tell because I invested quite some time in stores testing different bluetooth headsets, and this one just takes the cake.

But If you want the best audio quality for listening and talking, might as well get a wired headset, or a wireless one that's above the 4,000 peso mark, or the true wireless variants above 10,000 peos. I got this one mainly for wanting to be handsfree, and this is the best product I came across with that's under a thousand pesos.

There are two cons that need to be mentioned: one, the voice speaking in Chinese that nags you on certain notifications (e.g. low battery) is a bit annoying and two, it's not a complete fit in my ear. Granted that it keeps on despite banging my head a couple of times, it's not completely locked to your ear that you'd be confident to wear it while biking or hiking outside. Can't blame them though as this product wasn't designed for those extreme conditions.
