Headsets come in all shapes and sizes. The classic version consists of a headband with two earphones and a microphone positioned close to your mouth by a mic boom. Two earphones deliver clear stereo sound, while headsets with just one earphone offer only mono sound. However, they keep you more in tune with your surroundings. Wireless headsets do away with cables altogether, communicating instead by Bluetooth™ for shorter distances or a DECT connection for a range of up to 120 metres.
Both wired and wireless headsets can be used for phone calls and video conferences. Wired headsets come with a variety of connection types, such as RJ9, RJ11 or often manufacturer-specific plugs. Other features and specifications such as impedance may also vary considerably. When used with smartphones or other mobile phones, headsets are usually plugged into a TRS jack and feature an in-line microphone and volume control.
Our Bechtle online shop carries premium headsets by various brands such as Plantronics, Jabra, Sennheiser, Hama, Apple, Samsung and many more. While Bluetooth™ is the most common wireless connection for smartphones and other mobile phones, we also carry numerous options for DECT-connected headsets. Important criteria to consider when selecting a headset are voice quality, battery capacity in addition to maximum talk and standby times.
