all headsets I have ahd sofar 93 or 4) use an indicator light on the
headset itself to indicate on/off or pairingmode
alhough this si blind-unfriendly mostly all of them also use aduio-signals
in the headset itself to indicate these modes too.

before you buy please first check if your bt-unit in your pc or laptop
supports audio-profile at least (or handsfree profile) before buying one.
I've got a jabra v250 at the moment which is quite expansive but I like it
a lot (even vibrates behidn the ear :) ).

AFAIK therefore most headsets will do okay.
jabra though also has it's manuals online.
