Bluetooth handset

A handset that provides a two-way connection to a cellphone via Bluetooth. Normally, headsets are paired with Bluetooth cellphones, not handsets. However, a Bluetooth handset is designed as "retro" equipment or just plain fun. Since a cellphone is also a handset, this is a handset-to-handset device. See Bluetooth headset, Bluetooth headphones and handset.
