Locating A Bluetooth Headset

This morning, just a few hours ago when I got up, I got a really, really nasty surprise. I lost my Bluetooth headset. No, it wasn't stolen, and I was certain about it because I had taken it to my room the night before. I was really worried and anxious, not only because it's an expensive piece of tech, but also because it's a gift from someone special.

I'm a kind of efficient guy, and I'm not the type to completely look at every drawer and opening I have, so I Googled for a way to locate it. For Android users, there's an app called Headset Trackr which, well, tries to locate your lost headset. I looked at the App's details in Play Store, and I didn't think it's useful for me because I was certain I was standing in the same room as my headset. The app basically searches for your headset and put it in Google Maps. I frankly don't know about the details, but I just didn't think it would work, at least for that situation.

Fortunately, I also found a more practical solution, thanks to whoever wrote this. The writer apparently had experienced the same thing I did, and he did something brilliant to find his lost piece of tech. He called his cell phone which was connected to the lost headset, and received his own call. When a cell phone is connected to a bluetooth headset, the call is automatically switched to the headset's speaker and microphone(s). That was what the writer took advantage of.

And so, the writer moved around the house while making some quite loud noises. Noises could be anything: screaming, yelling, or even playing music quite loudly. Anyway, when the writer heard his/her own noise echoing through the phone, that's when he knew he was close to it. He kept making noises until he finally found his headset.

Doing this, although makes people think you're crazy, is actually a more sensible solution, rather than buying another piece of headset or breaking down every drawer and opening you had. I know because I've just done it, right before I wrote this post. So, if you ever misplaced your headset and you are sure that it's close to you, then you should do this trick.

So, I guess that's for the morning post. I wrote this hoping that this could actually help someone. If this article helps you, then you're welcome to write about your story in the comments section below. But in the end, it's best if you put your headset somewhere you could notice. Finally, thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to see you again :D
