Corded Headset Systems
If you are in need of a headset for hands-free communication, but are unsure of exactly what you need, you may want to consider a complete system. Most business-grade headset solutions require a headset and bottom cable or amplifier. If you opt for a corded telephone headset system, you get everything you need, including the headset, amplifier, and necessary cables.
By choosing a corded headset system, you are getting everything you need to make your headset life easy! The amplifier and headset are both included, along with the required cables, allowing you to simply plug into your phone and start talking, hands-free. Amplifiers are universally compatible with most phones and typically include speaker volume, microphone volume, compatibility settings, and microphone mute capability. Amplifiers will either come with an A/C power cord to plug into a wall outlet, or include standard AA batteries, which typically last for years. Higher-end wired systems will include a Quick Disconnect connection, allowing you to leave the headset on all day and simply pull the cables apart, putting your caller on hold as you walk away from your desk. As you compare pricing, less expensive systems will have average sound quality and average comfort, making for a more budget-friendly solution. More expensive models, those of business quality, will provide an extremely comfortable hands-free solution for all-day wearing and superb sound quality. As with most headset systems, you can easily plug two systems into a telephone for call monitoring and coaching.
Corded Headset Systems
When deciding on a corded telephone headset system, the headset is the key item on which to focus. You want to make sure you choose a wearing style you like and find a model that fits comfortably. Wearing styles include over-the-ear and headband models. Ear models are lighter in weight and less noticeable, which is great if you interact with customers face to face. With wired headset systems using headbands, you will have a more secure fit and slightly better sound quality due to the large speaker. Also with headband models, you will hear your caller slightly better, because the speaker acts as a barrier that blocks out background noise around you better than ear model wired headset systems.
As with any corded telephone headset system, if you take the time to research or consult a headset expert to find your perfect solution, you will find wired headset systems allow you to be more productive with less neck and shoulder strain caused by cradling your handset between your neck and shoulder, making for a much more enjoyable work day!
