    I would not recommend this course of action for a number of reasons.
    1) If you are planning on trooping battery longevity will be important...wireless are hard to recharge while wearing
    2) Space is an absolute premium in your bucket. The headset I am using is linked here which cost 4$ plus shipping. The headset I linked is awesome for the Fett bucket for a number of reasons. The biggest reasons is it allows me to receive phone calls easily AND allows me to use a voice change device simultaneously. The headset has a mic/volume control which also has a silver button at the volume control. This silver button allows you to answer cell phone calls on most modern phones (works great with my Samsung Galaxy S5). I have this volume control under one of my shoulder bells within easy reach at all times if I need to pick up a phone call.
    3) headset cost 4$ whereas yours would cost a lot lot more.
    4) Possible interference issues and drain on your connecting devices. More important is the possible interference you can have due to disruptions on the 2.4 Ghz band. If you are in a crowded area with a ton of bodies expect to get some interference with your audio.
    5) Inability to user the good old Aker MR 1505 speaker system used by most troopers for external voice amplification.
    6) Most bluetooth devices (unless they are the newer 4.1 standard) do not support multiple LTE devices simultaneously. I have a real-time voice changer application and a different cell phone I use for calls....both are linked thru my headset. While this is technically possible with ear/phone bluetooth devices...good luck getting a finger in your bucket every time you want to pick up a phone call.
