Sometimes the biggest problem with communication over the phone is being able to hear someone clearly. You could use headsets to hear better, but even in noisy public places like the airport, you may still get bad reception. When you rely on your phone for business purposes, you need to be able to hear your callers clearly so there are no miscommunication mishaps. Here are some telephone headsets that deliver better, clearer sound (no matter where you are) and how you can get them.
Full-Ear Coverage Headsets
These headsets block everything else from your ears' natural ability to channel sound into the ear canal. Sure, you look like you are walking around with ear muffs on, but that can also be quite an advantage as no one will suspect that you are talking to someone on your phone. When you also hide the cord in a chest pocket of your suit or coat, then there is nothing to give you away except your constant chatter to someone no one else can see.
Light Weight, Noise-Cancelling Headsets
If you do not care for the "retro" look of full-ear coverage headsets, there are also light weight, noise-cancelling headsets. These are a little more expensive because they are equipped with tiny sound filters, are barely noticeable to the wearer, and are still capable of doing the job the full-ear coverage sets can do. Quite often, telephone representatives will invest in these because they block out the background noise of working from home or working in close quarters with several other representatives in office cubicles. They are most effective at protecting the wearer's privacy, and no one can ever tell where you are or what you are doing when you use these.
Total, in-Ear Headsets
If you want a complete and secure phone line, nothing beats total, in-ear headsets. These are the kind that intelligence agents and the President's bodyguards wear. Some of the newer models even feature Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology so you do not have to connect the ear pieces to your phone with a tiny wire. They are the most expensive type, but they also deliver the best sound quality and privacy features of most any other headset available on the market.
How/Where to Get Your Headsets
The complete, over-ear styles are available wherever electronics and phone accessories are sold. The light weight, noise-cancelling telephone headsets are typically special order items, since they are customarily used by businesses, but stores that sell only electronics may carry some models in their stores. The total, in-ear headsets may be purchased from security companies that specialize in personal security products.
