However, when you are dealing with business, it is often best to have your hands free so you can multi-task as you talk on the phone, even if it’s something as simple as typing on the computer. This is why it is so important to ensure you choose the right headset for your needs so you can get everything you need done. In general, there are two aspects to consider: your working environment and your preferred wearing method.

Working Environment

One of the biggest considerations you need to make when choosing a phone headset is the noise level in your office. When it comes to headsets, there are two options to consider: a voice tube headset or a noise cancelling headset. If you are in a quieter environment, typically one that consists of less than 10 people, a voice tube headset is sufficient. However, if you work in a louder environment, you may need a noise cancelling headset to ensure you can hear callers better.

Wearing Method

Headsets fit on your head in different ways, depending on their design. Which you choose is a personal comfort preference. Head worn headsets are those that consist of a headband that stretches across your head and features either one or two speakers. Users in louder environments require one with two speakers, while those in quieter environments can hear well with just one. Your other option is an ear worn headset, which fits over or in the ears without the headband. However, most people find these difficult to maintain and more uncomfortable. If you aren’t sure which method you prefer, you may want to consider a convertible headset, which allows you to wear them in multiple ways.

Choosing the right headset boils down to your own personal preferences, as well as the noise level you experience in the workplace. When you do your research and consider your options, you will be able to make the right choice for a functional headset that provides you with the comfort level you desire.
