Choosing an office headset

With such a wide variety of brands and types of headset for business or personal use out there suited to different environments and preferences, finding the headset you need for your job can be tricky! Telephone Wreckers stocks a wide range of wireless Plantronics headsets, Plantronics bluetooth headsets and wired office headsets. From the Plantronics range there are both binaural and monaural headsets, headset and earpiece converters, replacement headset parts, ear loops and cables for phone systems.

Four reasons to get a headset for your office or mobile phone

  • Avoid neck and shoulder strain from trying to cradle a handset
  • Increased freedom – your hands are free to type and write and move around the office
  • The Australian Physiotherapy Association recommends Plantronics headsets for office workers
  • Great for both the office and the car – free to focus on the task at hand, no need to touch your phone to answer the call

Should I get a wired headset or wireless headset?

Wired headsets are a great choice if you want a greater level of sound clarity and quality when compared to a wireless headset. Unfortunately this can mean a limited range of freedom and movement, unlike a wireless headset. If you wish to avoid radiation then wired headsets are the best choice for you.

What is the difference between a binaural headset and a monaural headset?

A binaural headset has two earpieces, while a monaural headset only has one earpiece or side.

Should I get an earpiece or a headset? Do I need a noise reducing or sound cancelling headset or earpiece?

Choosing between a phone headset and an earpiece style headset depends on your work environment. One of the key things that you should consider if you need to hear what’s happening around you or simply focus on a single conversation. Personal preference is also another factor. Some may prefer the feeling of a headset but need to monitor their environment. There are several crossover or hybrid one ear (monaural) headsets and headband style earpieces available for those who cannot decide or prefer certain aspects from headsets and earpieces.
