Bluetooth for PC questions

I'm looking into a bluetooth dongle & headset for my PC and was wondering :

WiFi has WPA security ... does bluetooth use any security, if so what, as the choice is 10m or 100m dongle.

Do the bluetooth headsets/earpieces have a range, or is the range decided by the dongle?

Any recommendations for particular products?

Thanks

yes they have security codes to be entered.

PCW have a belkin dongle 100metre one £24.99 it is superb. Software is easy to get to grips with.

Can't help with the headset.
