Need a headset but don’t know where to begin? There are plenty of options and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. In this article, we at Business Headsets break down the ins and outs of headsets. We cover everything from our favourite noise-cancelling headsets, wireless headsets, and Bluetooth-ready headsets, to wired headsets. There are many different types of headsets available on when you shop with Business Headsets. You have your standard wired headset that you can plug into any telephone or other device with a standard headphone jack (the old-school kind that looks like an inverted triangle), but these days most computer users choose wireless devices like mice and keyboards, so they tend not to think about whether their headset is wireless or not. Can’t decide? There are also hybrid models that have both wired and wireless capabilities.

Why use a headset?

A headset is an excellent choice for many situations—especially if you have to wear it for long periods of time. Not only will you be more comfortable, but you’ll be protecting your ears from damage caused by excessively loud sounds. If you work in an open office where there’s lots of ambient noise, a headset is a great solution. It allows you to reduce the noise around you while still being able to communicate with colleagues. This can make communication much easier, especially if your co-workers are in a different department or on a different floor. With a wireless headset, you can easily even move around the office without being tied down by a cord. You’ll also be able to walk around and continue your work while on a conference call. Using a headset is also a great way to protect your voice. Constant use of a phone, especially when it’s hands-free, can cause vocal strain, which can lead to fatigue and damaged vocal cords. When you use a headset, you can adjust the volume and use a lower and more comfortable pitch for your voice. This will avoid causing strain and damage to your vocal cords. Finally, headsets are a great option for both your employer and your customers. Your co-workers will appreciate the reduced ambient noise and your voice will sound clearer and more professional, and your customers will appreciate being able to interact clearly with your company by phone. They’ll be able to get the information they need and feel like they’re being taken care of by a professional team.

Noise-cancelling headsets

Noise-cancelling headsets use technology to cancel out background noise so you can focus on your conversation, even in an open office or other noisy environments. They use sound waves to create an environment that cancels out the unwanted noise. The best headsets for noise cancellation come with noise sensors, so they can automatically adjust their level of cancellation to the level of noise in the room. These types of headsets are ideal for those who work in an irregularly noisy environment. They’re also a good choice if you want to cancel out background noise while using a conference call on your computer. Noise cancellation is an excellent feature that’s perfect for those of you who like to work without distractions. These headsets are designed to cancel out that noise around you so that you can focus on the conversation at hand.

Wireless headsets

Wireless headsets are a fantastic choice if you want to be able to move around the office while on a call. They come with a small transmitter that plugs into the host device (the computer, telephone, or other device you’re using to make calls). The transmitter sends audio to a small receiver that you place behind your ear. You can connect the receiver to your telephone with a standard corded or cordless handset. Headsets are also great for travelling because you can switch the transmitter between devices. If you regularly attend meetings, you might want to consider a wireless headset as it can work with you on the move. They’re great for those who have to take a lot of calls and need to be hands-free.

Bluetooth Headsets

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that enables devices to connect without being physically hooked together. Headsets that use Bluetooth can be paired with a wide range of devices—including computers, tablets, and smartphones. This means you can use them to make calls on your computer or smartphone, pair them with other Bluetooth-connected devices, and listen to music on your headphones. Bluetooth is a great choice if you want to use the same headset with your computer, tablet, and smartphone. They’re also a great option for those who want a hands-free way to use their devices. With these headsets, you can walk around and move around while on a call, listen to music, and more. They’re also great for pairing with your other smart technologies. 

Wired Headsets

The classic option; wired headsets are also a great choice, if you’re happy to connect your headset to your computer’s USB port. This type of headset contains a USB plug on the end of the cord, so pairs with the majority of office equipment. You can plug it directly into your computer for hands-free communication. Wired headsets are a great and affordable option if you’re generally situated at the same desk or in the same space, and mitigates the risk of loss as you’ll always be plugged in! You can also plug them into a USB port on a telephone, so can be a great option – whatever the nature of your business. 


Headsets are an excellent way to protect your ears and reduce noise while you make calls. It’s important to choose the right type of headset for your needs. At Business Headsets, you can find a range of wired and wireless headsets that connect to your computer or smartphone via Bluetooth. All of these options are great for hands-free communication, whether you’re in an open office or travelling. So, which one will you be purchasing?
