Why you need a headset

You want your prospects to think you're legit, right? Then they need to hear you loud and clear.

Shouting into the built-in microphone in your laptop and playing out the audio through the built-in speakers will provide the worst audio experience for your prospects - the microphone is too far from your mouth and you will sound like you are inside a cave. Consider investing in a headset instead.

If you're going to buy a headset

Don’t buy an el cheapo brand.

You're a pro, or manage pros. Invest in a pro-quality headset from Jabra, Poly, Logitech Business or Sennheiser.

Headset wisdom compressed

  • If you’re a gamer consider that gamer headsets tend to have cheaper omnidirectional (read “capturing every noise in the room”) instead of unidirectional microphones (read “just your voice and no background noise”).

  • A wired headset is more reliable than a wireless headset and never runs out of battery. A wired headset with a USB connection works better than a wired headset with a 3.5mm connection.

  • If you are going to use a wireless headset, a Unified Communications or Call Center headset works better than a headset designed for smartphones.

  • A Bluetooth headset works better when paired with a USB Bluetooth dongle from the manufacturer of the headset. Built-in desktop / laptop bluetooth is buggy and we don’t recommend that you pair your Bluetooth headset to the computer directly.

  • Airpods and Airpods Pro do a great job of isolating noise coming into your ears but they are less good at isolating noise from your background going into your prospect's ears.

  • Headsets with microphone booms perform much better than headsets with microphones built into the earcups.

Models we use, we have tested, and recommend.
