USB Headsets

Headsets are a headphone and microphone combination set on a headband. They plug in to your PC or laptop and allow you to listen and contribute to an on-line call, usually without the need for additional software or drivers.

The principle advantage of a headset is it allows you to communicate privately while leaving your hands free to take notes or co-ordinate presentations. With a convenient USB connection for simple plug-and-play connectivity, USB Headsets are a great way to connect to conference calls, skype and gaming platforms.

With the ever increasing popularity of online business and personal conversation, PC headsets are an essential peripheral for personal computers. RS Component’s range of USB headsets offers models from leading brands, to suit your home or office set up.

What Is The Best USB Headset For Me?

When choosing your headset, it is important to consider the following:

Singular or Dual Earpiece

Though many prefer the sound experience of stereo headsets, some people prefer a single ear piece that allows them to better monitor their environmental noise. Although they only offer mono playback, an advantage of single earpiece headsets is that they are lighter weight, and so can be comfortably worn for longer periods of time. This makes them ideal for those who work in call-centre environments.

External Volume Controls

USB headsets are available with external audio controls built into the connecting wire. This inline volume control allows you to customize your interaction without have to compromise anything on your screen, which is ideal for screen sharing and online presentations. Some models have a mute button, and a handy LED indicator for when the mute is activated.

Mic Sensitivity

Depending on the natural volume of your voice, the sensitivity of your headset microphone may be a consideration. It may also affect how much background noise is picked up by your microphone, for example in busy office environments. Audio quality is important to be understood clearly, and the right microphone can make all the difference.

Cable Length and Adjustments

For long conversations and meetings, comfort is key. Be sure to check the over-the-head adjustment capability of your headset, so that you can wear it comfortably. Also, be sure you have the cable length you need should you wish to remain mobile during prolonged engagements. For gaming headsets, personal comfort can be as important as audio quality for an immersive experience.
