Working in a office with several employees can be a difficult task. The constant office chatter makes it difficult when you’re on the phone. Fortunately there are plenty of headphones that will help filter out majority of the background noise. I’m almost certain that majority of people have heard the phrase “noise cancelling.” Generally speaking, that is referring to the microphones ability to filter out noise for the user on the other end of the phone. Below you will find a small list of headsets are great at filtering out that background noise. As a bonus I will include a couple of headphones that filter out noise through the microphone and the noise through the earphones! Some of the headsets will have passive/active noise cancelling earphones.
Let us start with the noise cancelling microphone only category. Note, all of these headsphones come with a superb noise cancelling microphone. All corded headsets require a bottom cable or an amplifier to work with your device.
Like I said above, this has an excellent noise cancelling microphone. But in addition, you have high def audio, plush leatherette ear cushions, and very sturdy construction. This CORDED binaural (covers both ears) headphone has a little passive noise cancelling (think of resting earphones over your ears without any sound playing). The microphone is a bit unique, it sits just below the base of the earphone to avoid any possible interference with your peripheral vision. You can also extend the microphone to the perfect distance to your mouth. With all of that said, if you’re in a very loud environment that has close quarters or no partitions, you’ll probably want to opt for something with active noise cancelling. Great headphone for mild office chatter. Requires a bottom cable or amplifier, comes with a manufacturers 2 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This is the newest wireless headphone on the market. Similar to the above, if you’re in a mild to moderately noisy environment, this dual eared wireless headset will be an awesome choice. This monster comes out of the box with a massive 490ft wireless range, 13 hours of talk time, and advanced noise cancelling microphone. The awesome part of this headphone is, you can even plug it into your computer at the same time as your desk phone, allowing you to switch between calls on your landline and soft phone applications. This headphone is certified for Microsoft Skype for Business so chat away, or just enjoy some YouTube or stream some Spotify. It runs on DECT technology like many other wireless headphones, but this uses DECT Security Step C & using FIPS approved algorithms for key generation, payload encryption and authentication. It is the most secure headset on the market. Like I said this headphone is among the line of the newest and best technology by Jabra. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy.
The newest technology got even better. This binaural wireless headset boasts all the same features of the Engage 65 plus more. You will still have the incredible range, talk time, and advanced noise cancelling microphone, etc. The key differences between this headset and the Engage 65 is the ability to connect to even more devices and a touch screen base. The Engage 75 can connect 5 devices at the same time. Yes you read that right. 5 devices. You can connect 2 USB, 2 Bluetooth, and 1 desk phone. Now, I don’t know why you would need to connect this many devices, but I guess it’s good to know that you can. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy.
Noise cancelling earphones and microphone:
For extremely loud environments here we have a dual ear circumaural corded headset. These headphones were designed to be used in very loud environments, from aircraft carriers to the New York Stock Exchange. They have 22dB of noise reduction through the ear cups and 20dB through the microphone. These headphones are exceedingly durable. The cables are resistant to UV, and oils and solvents, and will stand up to extreme temperatures while remaining to be flexible. If you’re in a call center environment or have really loud background noise, this is the best corded noise cancelling headset. This is a corded headset so you will need a bottom cable or an amplifier. Comes with a manufacturers 2 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This wireless Bluetooth headset would be great for a loud environment. It has active noise cancelling in the ear phones as well as a noise cancelling microphone. Not only is it very comfortable, but you can also pair it with another Bluetooth enabled device. Say for instance your cell phone rings, you could answer the call with the same headphone. It has soft plush ear cushions so you can wear them all day long. Generally speaking, these headsets were designed to be used with a computer and cell phone. However, we’re seeing that many people want to have a wireless noise cancelling (through the earphones) headphone to be used with desk phones. Luckily there is a solution to that. You can pair this headphone with a PC/USB switch that will enable you to use this headset with a corded desk phone. You have about 12 hours of talk time and 150 ft wireless range from the Bluetooth dongle. There are many other subtle features you can read about here. Comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. Click here to buy now.
Last but not least we have the top of the line wireless that Plantronics makes. This headset is the newest addition to the noise canceling earphones/microphone headsets. This has a Omni directional boomless microphone, dual mode active noise canceling, and 20 hours of talk time. Like the Voyager Focus, you can use this headphone with your Bluetooth enabled devices and with your corded desk phone with the addition a PC/USB switch. When you’re not on the phone, you can enjoy up to 24 hours of streaming music, watching movies, etc. Another neat function is an open mic button which will allow you to listen to your surroundings when needed.

Are you in an IP (Voip) call center using softphones where you need train a new staff using USB headsets?
A Windows computer can only recognize one USB sound device at a time. So the computer cannot activate two USB headset at the same time. You can connect two USB headsets, but only one can be turned on.
There are no solution to utilize two USB headsets on a computer as training headsets. The reason is because your computer OS (Windows or Mac) does not recognize more than one USB headset at one time. This is a limitation of the computer OS.
With Quick Disconnect (QD), both Plantronics and Jabra (GN Netcom) have a training cable you can attached two headsets to one computer for training purpose
Jabra (GN Netcom) Setup:
Use a Jabra Link 265 USB training cable with two Jabra QD Headsets. We recommend this pre-configured Jabra Computer USB Training Bundle, 2x Jabra Biz 1500 Headset :

Headphones are becoming more and more popular everyday for any business office. When you think of business headphones, the first thing that usually comes to mind are Bluetooth/corded headphones for cell phones (depending on when you were born). If you were like me, you didn’t know there are literally hundreds of different types of headphones available for desk phones. Whether you’re using a $500+ multi line or a $50 single line desk phone, there are countless options for you. If you work in a job or business that requires significant talk time on a phone, I suggest you do your research. Not only will a headphone free your hands up, but you’ll reduce damage to your posture and your neck. Here you will find some suggestions on which headphone will be best suited for your needs. Lets start off with a great entry level wireless headphone.
The Jabra Pro 920: This headphone is an industry standard. It has up to 350ft wireless range, 8 hours of talk time, and noise cancelling microphone. You don’t have to worry about others listening in on your conversation because it comes equipped with security encryption. It runs on DECT 6.0 technology, similar to a cordless phone that you would use at home. The battery will charge rapidly (full charge 3 hours). You have the option to convert this headphone into another wearing style if you choose to get the ear hook or neck band. This is a very versatile lightweight unit that is also remote answering capable, see below. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Check for compatibility.
The Jabra Pro 920 + GN1000 Wireless Headphone Bundle Package : Adds remote answering capability to the Jabra Pro 920. Don’t you hate it when you’re phone is across the room and you hear it ring? You have to run to the other side potentially injuring yourself or your coworkers. With the addition of the GN1000 RHL, you no longer have to fear leaving your desk or missing a call. This bundle package includes the remote handset lifter. The lifter will sit underneath your handset, when your phone rings, you will hear a beep in your headphone. To answer or end a phone call, you simply press power button on the headphone to activate the lifter. If you want to utilize the full potential of your wireless headphone, purchase this. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Check for compatibility.
Jabra Biz 2400 II QD Mono Ultra-Noise Canceling UNC 3-in-1: If you work at a job that doesn’t require stepping away from your desk, you can get away with a corded headphone. This is one of top of the line headphones on the market. Not only is this headphone superbly comfortable, but to ensure that, it comes with 3 different wearing styles. It comes with a traditional style headband, ear hook, and neck band. Not only is this unit elegantly crafted, and comfortable (larger soft leatherette ear cushions and increased headband cushion), but it’s also comes with a Kevlar reinforced cable.

Check for compatibility, comes with a manufacturer’s 3 year warranty.
Jabra Biz 2400 II Duo Ultra-Noise Canceling UNC QD Headphone: If you work in a louder environment, the background noise can be cumbersome for both you and your customer. You don’t want to have to keep asking “what, can you repeat that?” Similarly, you want your customer to be able to hear you clearly. If you work in close quarters, or have loud coworkers, I’d recommend using a binaural (2 ears) headphone. The earphones don’t have active noise cancelling like some others, but it definitely helps block out some of that unwanted noise. The 2400 II Duo and Mono 3 in 1 offer the best in class noise cancelling microphone on the market. This is as close as you can get to a complete noise cancelling microphone. Sometimes customers will ask if there is a noise cancelling microphone that will block out 100% of background noise. The answer is no. If it blocked 100%, you wouldn’t be heard, but it will block up to 60-70% of the background noise. Like the above, it has great HD sound, 360˚ rotating microphone, and Kevlar reinforced cables. Check for compatibility, comes with a manufacturer’s 3 year warranty.
Switching back to wireless headphones,

It has up to 450ft wireless range, 10 hours of talk time, and comes with 3 different wearing styles. Why is this headphone so good you ask? The 9470 allows you to connect your desk phone, computer, and cell phone together through 1 headphone. Majority of people today use some other form of communication i.e Skype, Goto Meeting, Facetime, etc. This headphone unifies all 3 of your devices and allows you to communicate through 1 headphone. If you were to take a call on your desk phone, then suddenly had to hang up and take a call on your iPhone/Android, you don’t have to switch headphones. Same thing goes with your computer. Have a long conference call you need to take notes on? This device allows you to record audio on your PC. You will have a great noise cancelling microphone and wideband audio allowing for crystal clear communication. If you’re a business professional that spends most of the day on the phone, the Pro 9470 is truly the one. Also compatible with remote answering.

Hello class, today we will be looking at headsets that are compatible for your PC (Windows) and Apple Mac. Many businesses today are opting to use their computers in lieu of phones to make phone calls. It’s a very cost effective method to reduce spending by using VOIP and other soft phone applications. There are so many options out there, but I will list the ones that stand out most to me. The most important things to consider are the call quality and comfort. All of these headsets below are plug and play, and even someone like myself can install them. If you plan on sitting at the computer and don’t need to be mobile, I’d recommend getting a corded. If you need to be more mobile, or just don’t want to be tied to your desk, go wireless. Let’s begin shall we?
