A USB headset is a pair of headphones with an attached microphone that connects through a USB connector to a computer or other device that supports the headset’s audio driver. The headset allows for hands-free communication over the Internet or via phone, and it is very useful for teleworkers.
A good headset will have a high-quality sound and noise-canceling features, so the voices of remote coworkers or friends and family are clear and understandable. It will also be comfortable to wear for long periods of time. It’s important to shop for the best headset that suits your needs and budget.
Our selection of wired dual-ear usb headsets offers buyers a variety of choices from top brands. The budget-friendly options have foam cushions and minimal headband padding, but they will still provide adequate audio quality with basic noise cancelling microphones. The mid-range models are business professional headsets that offer exceptional audio and more comfort for all-day use. The premium offerings have advanced noise cancelling technology that will keep the lawnmowers, kids fighting or neighbours’ loud music from interfering with calls.
USB headsets usually have a mute button or volume control on the headset itself, as well as a mic mute switch on the cable. They also come with either a hard-wired USB cable or wireless USB dongles to enable the headset to be used without being connected to a computer or other device. There is no difference in audio performance between a headset that uses the USB-A or USB-C connection; they’re the same in both cases.
