All headsets are not the same. With so many people depending on a headset for both work and play, it's hardly surprising that there are so many headset options to choose from.
What to consider when buying a headset.
• Your headset must be comfortable to wear. After that, other considerations will be whether you require a wired or wireless, binaural or monaural (one ear or two), and do you want it to fit over your ear or over your head.
• Do you need a headset to enable you to work from home, in an office, play the latest game, listen to music or take a flight using the best aviation headset?
• When you buy a headset for work, there are a few simple considerations such as the amount of time spent on the phone, the kind of job you have, whether the office is open plan and noisy, and which type of phone you're using can make the whole process of selecting a headset easier.
• Do you like to wear your headset over the ear or over the head? What device do you need to connect to; a computer-based softphone, mobile phone, desk phone, or multiple devices. Wired headsets enable you to keep your hands free, while the use of wireless headsets means that you can leave your desk and move around during calls. Alternatively, you may wish to connect to your mobile phone wirelessly via a Bluetooth headset or Bluetooth earphone.
