OVER EAR OR OVER HEAD?
This is more of a case of personal preference. Over the Head Headsets are generally more popular if they are to remain on throughout the day as they generally remain in the most fixed position. However, there are many snugly fitting over the ear options now available and these are generally more stylish, lightweight and less likely to mess with your hair! You can also get convertible models that combine over the head and over the ear to suit your mood.
Manufacturer – We stock all leading Manufacturers or headsets and can recommend different makes/models based on your budget and priorities – speech quality, style, robustness etc.
New or Refurbished – While some will insist on new, please note that our range of refurbished headsets are significantly cheaper than new and come with a full warranty. All refurbished headsets come with new consumables such as ear cushions, voice tubes and windshields.
Connection Leads – Wired headsets need these to connect to the phone. It is important to make sure that you are using a compatible headset and lead. We can advise accordingly on this.
Hook Switch or Lifter – You either need a handset lifter or electronic hook switch depending on your phone type. With a lifter you need to install this below the handset piece on your phone. With a hook switch, you can just press the button on your headset to activate the call without lifting the receiver.
Active Noise Cancellation – By using active noise control, ANC enabled headsets cancel lower-frequency noise and counter ambient sound to improve your audio experience.
