Computer headsets are a common term to describe any headsets that connects to your PC or computer. They can connect via either USB adaptors or Bluetooth (if you PC is Bluetooth compatible). Computer headsets range in price from as little as $20- $400. Apart from the obvious quality considerations like better microphones for enhanced voice quality, better construction materials and obviously enhanced audio and features, the other key factor is what specific devices the computer headsets work with.

If it’s just your PC then computer headsets will fall at the lower end of the pricing spectrum. Add the ability to work with your office phone and/or mobile and the price jumps up significantly. The reason is you end up with one headset for all your communications. This is what they refer to as unified communications or UC for short.
For most people looking at computer headsets that’s all they want it for. So the question becomes do you want it to be a corded model (cheaper) or a wireless or Bluetooth model (more expensive). Where the wireless ability becomes very handy is if you are using your computer headsets to replace phone handsets in the office for VoIP. A wireless model then gives you the freedom to walk and talk. In about 90% of cases the corded model is more than adequate because most people are typically sitting directly in front of their PC anyway when using their computer headsets. So don’t spend the extra money unless it will truly benefit the way you work.
Computer headsets range dramatically in price as mentioned but for most customers in typical PC applications they can get an excellent version between $60-120. The higher the price (closer to $120) will typically denotes that the computer headsets in question have been voice optimised for IP telephony etc so they sound more natural in conversation and less digitised. This is the result of an enhanced audio frequency range in the microphone (wideband audio) to pick up a lot more of the normal human vocal register and also in the speakers so people sound more natural to the listener as well. It works both ways and is very discernible when you have had the ability to try cheap computer headsets versus the purpose built quality models.
The key to picking the right computer headsets is determining frequency of use. If it’s a daily proposition for work then you need the quality to be perfect otherwise it compromises your businesses professionalism if you sound like an overseas call centre. If it’s just for the occasional overseas personal Skype call then I don’t think your family and friends will mind if you’re not broadcasting in HD quality audio. Keep this in mind and as with all our ranges you only want to pay for the features you need, then buy the best computer headsets that tick those boxes.
