The Best Headsets for Remote Work

Since mid-March, when stay-at-home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic went into effect, our lives have undergone a significant change, and life as we know it no longer looks the same. Everything we do, from how we shop for groceries to how our children attend school, has been somewhat altered by the pandemic. We’re all doing our best to adapt to this seismic shift in our society so that we can safely get on with business as usual. 

One of the biggest changes we’ve had to cope with during these unprecedented times is how we work. Those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to telecommute to the office are now working from home in order to stay safe and socially-distanced from our co-workers. Even though we’re lucky to have the available technology that allows us to do this, working from home can still be quite frustrating, and not everybody has adapted easily to this new normal.

Take, for example, online meetings. Gone are the days of sitting around a conference room table, sharing ideas, and making plans with our colleagues. While not everyone misses this face-to-face approach (and, to be sure, there’s a lot to be said for attending meetings in cozy PJ pants), sitting on multiple video chats per day with co-workers and clients, interacting via Zoom or Google Meet where we once would have had face-to-face interactions, is not for everybody. 

For many employees, especially those living in cramped spaces with multiple distractions, working remotely has been among the most difficult aspects of COVID life they’ve had to adapt to in a relatively short period of time.

Those who have yet to embrace remote work and are struggling to concentrate can find an ideal and simple solution through the use of headsets. Using a headset helps create an instant distraction-free environment, no matter what’s going on in the background! Best of all, some headsets include special features such as muted microphones that can help minimize background noise coming from your end, providing a pleasant, focused call for all meeting participants. Here are our top choices for headsets to help make remote work go more smoothly for everyone involved.

The Best Headsets for Online Meetings

Since the onset of the events of the COVID-19 pandemic, life as we know it has been significantly altered. Everything from how we shop for groceries to how our children attend school looks different now, and we are adapting to this seismic change with pivots, workarounds, and other shifts to help us safely get on with business as usual.

Many of us are now working remotely, doing our jobs from home offices in order to stay safe and socially-distanced from our co-workers.

Over-ear headphones – what you need to know!

How do I choose between “over-ear “headphones versus “on ear” or simple earbuds?

Over-ear headphones create an enriched, personal hearing environment. These are ideal for educational settings as they provide high quality sound with the durable designs for day-in-day-out use.

Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamiltonbuhl, Califone , Cyber Acoustics , ThinkWrite , Andrea Communications and AVID Education.

The headphone earcups provide ambient noise-reducing qualities to allow the user to focus on the audio rather than external sounds.

On-ear headphones allow you to hear external sounds.

Whether you need stereo, mono or dual stereo/mono headphones with or without volume control, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your facility’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget.

Most headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.

As a quick rule of thumb, monaural headphones are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.

Stereo headphones are ideal for educational gaming, online learning, music appreciation classes and 21st century learning using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

It is important to know if the audio source is a mono or stereo player as well, since plugging a stereo headphone into a mono source will result in sound only coming from one of the two earcups.
