Audio Headsets – What to Look For

by Linda D. Yelverton

Many employees ask what the benefits of the latest audio headsets are, how they can find one that will suit their needs, and how much they will cost. The best thing about a headset is that you can be in any place, at any time, without having to carry a telephone or laptop, or with the added benefit of a speakerphone.


There are many companies that make wireless headsets, but not all of them are the same. Some brands, like Sony, are really good in terms of sound quality but can be very expensive. The best solution for this is to try several models before you choose the one that is perfect for you.

If you are in the public sector, you will need a headset that is sensitive to background noise. It should also have low impedance, which means it will be easy to hear voices and conversations around you. It should be able to handle more than one pair of earphones at a time. If your position is noisy, you might want to purchase a headset that has noise canceling capabilities.

Some of the best headset models have noise reduction technology built in, which removes background noise from the room when you are wearing the headset. A noise canceling headset can be very helpful for an environment where you work in a noisy room. Noise cancellation technology reduces the sound of all the other people in the room as you talk to the person on the other end of the call.

High-end receptionist headsets have wireless technology that allows you to talk to your employees on the road. With a headset like this, your employee can still listen to your voice while they are on the road, without having to worry about getting their phone calls returned to them. This is an advantage over regular office headsets, because if your employee forgets to set the headset up to get an incoming call, they won’t be able to hear your voice.

While you can get headsets with just one earphone, a full headset has two earpieces and one microphone. This allows you to talk to your boss on the road but still be able to hear the instructions and recommendations that you are giving your employees while they are on the road.

The design of a headset allows you to use either ear to talk to someone, so you don’t have to hold your hand in front of your face to talk to someone. This makes it much easier to talk and much easier to hear a conversation. Most headsets come with a headset adapter that allows you to connect a phone line from your home, so you don’t have to get in your car to make the call.

Most high quality headsets have a remote control to control the volume, as well as the volume of the conversation. If you are driving, you will need to make sure the volume control on the headset is turned down to a comfortable level, otherwise you will start to drive deaf.

If you can’t get a clear call when you have your headset on, turn it off first and switch it off when you turn it back on. Then turn the volume up, and try again. It might be that the volume of the conversation is too low to hear clearly.

The cost of a headset varies greatly. Some of the best headsets will cost hundreds of dollars, but you can find inexpensive headsets, as well. If you go online, you will be able to see reviews from satisfied customers who have used the headset you are interested in.

High end headsets are usually better than the ones made by the lower priced headsets. This is because the higher end products have more features that are beneficial to employees. So if you have a lot of calls to make, or you are in a position where you need to do a lot of talking on the phone, consider spending a little bit more for a good headset.

Just because a headset looks nice doesn’t mean that it is going to work well. Always read a product description before you buy a headset, and look for a model that has a couple of extras. The first thing that you should do is make sure that you have the right type of battery installed, this will keep the battery life longer.
