Dave: The inline microphones usually sound fine (mine is on a BOSE earbud
set) but they tend to pick up a lot of background noise. As for Bluetooth,
typical Bluetooth has a latency delay of about 150 ms. There is special low
latency Bluetooth of about 40 ms, which was developed so if one uses a
Bluetooth headset to watch video, the audio and video are closer to being
in sync. While delays of this magnitude are often tolerable on voice, if
one runs CW, even a small sidetone delay can drive one nuts 73, Mike, WV2ZOW
