Looking for Bluetooth Headset with mute button and mute LED

Like many others, i now do virtual meetings allllllll the time.

I have a wired logitech headset that has a mute button. When muted, the microphone tip has a red LED.

I am unable to find such a feature (LED) in wireless bluetooth headsets. I desperately want it for single ear (one side headphone).

Too bad you wanted single ear, because the new Microsoft Wireless Headset would of been a possible choice for you. Works on Xbox RF and also Bluetooth for phones and iPads. (Adaptor also for PC available) Plus it too has a white LED light indicator too let you know if it’s on or off. They are pretty light and sit comfy on my head/ears for the few hours I play at night.

Yeah...I know there are stereo headphones have the light on the mic to show you are muted...but not sure about single ear.

I have my Steelseries 7's that have a light on the mic when I mute.

But on my Jabra single ear headphone, it just beeps in the ear when it is muted. There is no light indicator.

A little reminder beep is acceptable... which model is it?

I have an obsolete Jabra Pro 9470 (link). I believe all the Jabra headsets will beep in your ear when muted.

My Plantronics Bluetooth headphones' receiver turns red when muted. Not on the headphone per se but a lot more visual

Lesson learned : Read the fantastic manual

I had skimmed the manual the first time around and didn't realize that to mute/unmute I had to press and hold a DIFFERENT button.

I also got to read all the other nifty features of my current BT headset.

I'll hold out for now as the core issue (mute button) is resolve and makes this headset replacement less urgent.
I'll keep an eye out for giving myself a birthday/xmas gift later this year :p
