If you don't know already, a headset is a headphones combined with a microphone, or one headphone with a microphone. Headsets are great at provide the equivalent functionality of a telephone headset but with hands-free operation. Being able to be hand-free and still speak is widely desirable for businesses all over the world. Headsets usually have only one speaker drive, but may also have a speaker for each ear. They have many uses and they widely known for the productivity the give to employees. This can include in call centers and other telephone-intensive jobs. Plus, this can be utilized for anybody wishing to have both hands free during a telephone conversation. Headsets are available in single-earpiece and double-earpiece designs. The single-earpiece headsets are known as monaural headsets. Double-earpiece headsets may support stereo sound or use the same audio channel for both ear-pieces.
Monaural headsets free up one ear and allow for interaction with others while keeping a sense of awareness of your surroundings. Usually, telephone headsets are monaural, even for double-earpiece designs. This is because telephones offer only single-channel input and output. However, for computer or other audio applications, where the sources offer two-channel output, stereo headsets are the norm! Additionally, the use of a headset instead of headphones allows use for communications while listening to stereo sources. Telephone headsets generally use 150-ohm loudspeakers with a narrower frequency range than those also used for entertainment. Lastly, stereo computer headsets, on the other hand, use 32-ohm speakers with a broader frequency range.
We want you to know that the microphone arm of headsets may carry an external microphone or it could be of the voicetube type. Plus, external microphone designs have the microphone housed in the front end of the microphone arm. Voicetube designs are also called internal microphone designs. They have the microphone housed near the ear-piece, with a tube carrying sound to the microphone. Standard headsets with a headband worn over the head are typically known as over the head headsets. Headsets with headbands going over the back of the user's neck are formally known as backwear-headsets or behind the neck headsets. Headsets worn over the ear with a soft ear-hook are always known as over the ear headsets or earloop headsets. Convertible headsets are designed so that users can change the wearing method by re-assembling various parts.
