What is the difference between a cheap and a more expensive computer headset?
There are actually a few differences that set better computer headsets apart from the rest:
Microphone and speaker quality – advanced computer headsets offer features like dynamic Sound processing for reduced echo, more realistic natural sound as well as wideband audio to maximise VoIP calls with high quality audio.
Multiple connectivity – the ability to use your headset on your PC / computer as well as your desk phone and mobile means you may pay a little more but you have one headset for all your communication!
Noise cancelling microphones - this is important if you are using the headset in an office environment.
Software – this allows you to customise your computer headset for optimal performance with a specific program developed and provided by the manufacturer.
Foldable for travel – this allows you to take your computer headset wherever you may go in their own travel pouch.
Stereo sound – this is achieved with a binaural headset which is better for being able to focus on IP telephony and Skype calls as well as for listening to music.
Dolby 7.1 - surround sound at its finest.
Can I get a wireless computer headset?
Yes. They also connect via USB but come with a special USB DECT adaptor. This connects directly to your computer and then wirelessly transmits to your headset. If you like to walk and talk or want to be able to cook a meal while on a Skype call then a wireless computer headset is absolutely brilliant. As the headset uses DECT technology the range is also much further than a normal Bluetooth computer connection and you can, in some cases, get up to 150m away from your PC.
Some wireless computer headsets connect to the computer via Bluetooth which is great is you want to use it for your iPad or iPhone too. Both of these options are available in the advanced filter on the left of the screen above.
