To many users, one of the big advantage of switching to a VOIP communication system is the fact that, as long as it has a USB connection, you can make use of almost any equipment you like. This is certainly true of headsets, a piece of essential equipment for almost anyone who spends more than a little time on the phone, especially if they do so in an office setting.
Take a look at any electronics retail site – or head into any physical store – and you will no doubt be practically bombarded with choices when it comes to VOIP compatible headsets. Some are wired, many are wireless. Some are slightly bulky, like DJ headphones, while others are so small they can barely be seen. Some are sleek and modern looking, some are a little more quirky and fun. And some cost $20 while others cost $200 and it can be rather hard to figure out why, as they often seem to do the same basic things.
To help you out a little we spent a little time recently wading through the many choices available to come up with a list of great options that should suit most people and fit lots of different budgets as well. Here’s a look at what we came up with:
Logitech ClearChat Wireless VoIP Headset
There are more than a few reasons to be fond of this headset, but perhaps the biggest is that it can more than hold its own with the priciest choices out there in terms of features and function and yet is reasonably priced – around $25 – putting it in reach of everyone, including the bootstrapping entrepreneur working on a tight, tight budget.
The biggest boons for us about this budget choice is the superior noise cancellation and the fact that it is one of the few choices at any price point to make use of laser tuned audio, a real plus for busy CSRs who need to hear callers as clearly as possible.
Plantronics Audio 655
It’s fair to say that compared to some of its competitors, this headset looks a bit old-fashioned. However, looks can be very deceiving. It’s mic performance is exceptional, it’s noise canceling is very good and perhaps most important of all it is super comfortable, with lovely padding that won’t irritate your ears even if the headset has to be worn for hours at a time. And for around $30 it’s another great budget choice perfect for use by the staff of a growing call center or a busy salesman with lots of other things to do.
Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset/h2>
If you are willing to spend a little more to get a sleek, very small and very lightweight headset that offers big performance in a small package then this is probably the way to go.
The first thing most people notice about the Jabra Stealth Bluetooth is that it just looks uber cool, but it does a lot of cool stuff too. It can be controlled from a smartphone, its HD audio is exceptional, it is very comfortable and, if it gets lost (it is pretty small) it has a GPS tracking feature to help you find it. It’s priced at around $80, so it’s a bigger investment, but it is probably more than worth the extra investment if you are going to use it a lot.
