When looking for a pair of headsets to use in a particular work setting, there are several options that one would face. It’s a given that they should function well enough to be able to clearly send and pick up sound over the phone or the computer, but there are other variables to mull over. For instance, would a particular headset fit comfortably enough when worn, or is it designed in such a way as to enable one to do other things while working with it on? So it is no less important to keep in mind the model’s dimensions, added specifications and capabilities when browsing for headsets.
In considering the type of headset to be used in a business environment, among the most suitable models are those measuring 177 (Width) x 147 (Depth) x 55 (Height) cm. Other optional sizes include the following: 19 x 15 x 7 cm and 25 x 8.3 x 18 cm. For those who are working from home, there are a number of sizes that would be ideal for a headset to be used in a residential setting. These include models measuring 7.9” x 2.5” x 9.7” (inches), as well as those that measure 35 x 15 x 10 mm.
The VOIP headset was designed for use with Voice Over Internet Protocol services (hence the acronym), which is basically technology that allows one to make and receive telephone calls through the Internet. There are various types of VOIP headsets to choose from, such as both wired and wireless models, as well as models that are capable of minimizing extraneous noise. They of course come in different sizes, including 13.5 x 17 x 4.8 cm, 6.89” x 7.09” x 3.07” and 42 x 13.6 x 6 mm.
The Bluetooth headset is also compatible with VOIP, and can be adapted to other applications as well, such as with computers, landlines, cell phones, and for voice recording. The ideal dimensions for a Bluetooth headset measure 40 x 18 x 9 mm, 48 x 21 x 11.5 mm and 60 x 14 x 7.5 mm. And with call center jobs being quite lucrative these days, those in this line of work would do well to invest in a good pair of headsets. The best type of headset to be used for a call center set up should ideally have any of the following dimensions: 0.5” x 2.375” x 4”, 3.6” x 1.8” x 0.9” and 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm.
