    Yes, they have bluetooth. You can find it in system preferences. (You'll find that by clicking on the Apple symbol in the very upper left-hand corner of your screen.)

    I use an EtyBlu2 BT headset with all my devices. Works well.

    It depends slightly on your primary use. If that is just voip and cell communications then a regular headset is fine.

    If however music is your primary concern and communications use if of secondary importance, then you may want to consider something a little more up the quality scale. The 2012 MacBooks (all of them) support APT-X, a codec running on Bluetooth 4.0 that allows for near-audiophile music quality.

    In that case, a set of headphones such as the Sennheiser MM 550-X might fit the bill. That is what I use, both for music and communication purposes. Until now I never regretted the investment.
