Listen Loud and Clear – The Best Conference Call Headsets

It would be fair to say we know a thing or two about conferencing calling. Whether you work remotely or in the office, there is a need to stay connected with your colleagues and clients all over the world.

Being on a conference call isn’t always the easiest thing in the world if you’re trying to take notes with phone in hand.  You need your hands free to write or type your notes and have clarity to hear what your participants are saying.

So what is the best way to listen and speak in a conference whilst doing other tasks? Conference call headsets.

Headsets allow you to block out background noise, provide a clear audio source and deliver voice clearly to both you and the speakers – without having your hand glued to your phone.

So whether you’re making webvideo or conference calls, having a high quality headset is vital. Everyone is different, and therefore will be looking for different things in a headset, so these are a couple on the market that we recommend:

Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset

This headset is one of the lightest on the market and is popular with call centre workers due to its excellent clarity and comfort. With great noise reduction features and premium sound quality this headset can be custom fitted.

Sennheiser PC 31-II

Sennheiser is known for its superior sound quality. The PC 31-II is easy to use, very comfortable with excellent voice clarity. The headset also has a noise cancelling microphone to eliminate interference if you are sitting in a busy office.

Logitech Clear Chat PC Wireless USB Headset

This office headset has over a 100 meter range and mobile phone compatibility, so ideal for audio conference calls as well as video calls. The headset can be synced with your VoIP enabled computer as well as voice enabled Bluetooth. It also has a headset/handset switch.

Plantronics Audio 995 Wireless Stereo Headset
