Critical Information to Choose the Best HeadsetSalem-News.com Business
How to tell good headset from bad headset – a guide for upgrading your office gear
(SALEM, Ore.) - There are many jobs when you just hand in your work at the end of the day and go home. No questions asked, no additional contact required. However, there are a lot more jobs where you constantly must be in contact with your business relations and make new relations in the process.
Inquiring about things while keeping other clients and potential associates on the other line, it can all be very complicated and stressful. Only imagine that on top of all that, you also have to deal with a low quality headset. That would really top everything.
Having a good headset is critical to undergoing business fast and efficient as a poor headset can really hurt negotiations. But not everyone in business is also tech savvy. So, too often, they buy bad headsets.
Here are the characteristics of a good headset and what you want to find in the ones you buy.
Great Call QualityThis is a given. You want to have the best call quality possible so that you can have a conversation over the phone without fearing that the connection will break or that instead of discussing important details you will keep saying “can you hear me?”. In general, you should easily be able to get a good headset, but if you do stumble across headsets with bad call quality, you won’t like it.
Good RangeOne of the points of headsets is that they allow you more freedom. If you get headsets that have poor range and are pretty much anchored to your desk anyway, you haven’t solved much by getting them.
Make sure that the headsets you buy can receive the signal over a significant range so that employees can easily move and stretch their legs as they conduct important business.
Noise CancellationNoise cancellation is something added in newer generations of headsets and headphones. They take out any other sound that isn’t your voice. This means that whoever you’re talking to is only going to hear you, without any sounds that might be going on behind you.
It’s a great feature and it’s a must for high end business calls because both parties want to hear each other crystal clear.
Stereo HeadsetsMake sure that you get stereo headsets because they pack more of a punch when it comes to audio quality. The alternative, mono headsets don’t bring anything to the table.
You want the headsets to be great for business calls but if playing any other sound that a customer’s voice will be a torment, it’s not going to be very effective in the long run.
