Headsets for Zoom, Cisco Webex Meetings
When Covid-19 pandemic hit the world, all the business (and personal) meetings went on-line via either Zoom or Cisco Webex. To get the best and clearest audio transmission of your conversation, we recommend using a quality headset like the ones below. Your voice is no further than a few inches from your mouth and typically the microphone on a headset is far superior in quality than the microphone built in on a laptop, tablet or a PC. You can either use a corded headset or wireless. We typically recommend wireless if you have the budget for the sake of freedom to move around the office and not have a corded tether to your desk.
