Whatever your job may be – whether you’re an entrepreneur, a diligent employee, or a self-employed go-getter – you need to make sure you’ve got the right equipment to succeed. Good technology is the backbone of a successful individual; if you have the wrong tech at your side, then you’re going to run into snags that shouldn’t be getting in the way.
One of the most important pieces of equipment you can have at your disposal is a good-quality headset, and what makes a good VoIP headset is different to, say, a solid gaming headset. Here are the best VoIP headsets for business in 2023.
This is a premium-quality headset, and it comes with a premium price tag as well. You might know Poly as Plantronics; the company changed its name back in 2019, but it’s still the same quality provider of electronic goods, so if you’ve ever used a Plantronics headset, you can expect similar performance from Poly. The Blackwire 8225 is a comfortable wired headset you can wear all day without having to worry about taking breaks, and it’s got active noise cancelling, too, so you can block out distractions.
If you prefer an on-ear option, the Logitech H540 is the one for you. It’s a lower-cost headset, too, so you won’t be breaking the bank by picking it up, making it perfect for new startups or budget-conscious businesses. Of course, the build quality here isn’t going to match up to best-in-class VoIP headsets, but the sound quality is solid, the mic is perfectly acceptable, and the headset is fine for longer periods of use as well, although it does start to get a little uncomfortable after a few hours.
Jabra rather confidently calls its Evolve2 75 headset “the new standard for hybrid working”, and honestly, if you’ve used it, you’ll find it hard to disagree. This is a supremely comfortable headset with excellent sound quality and a great mic. You’re probably not going to want to use this headset if you’re gaming, for instance, but for VoIP calls, it’ll bring your colleagues’ voices across with crystal-clear precision. Of course, you will be paying a premium for this one, so steer clear if you’re on a budget.
Another excellent VoIP headset option, Yealink’s BH76 has a level of quality that belies the official website’s slightly questionable copywriting. This is truly one of those cases where the headset speaks for itself; although Yealink’s marketing may leave a little to be desired, the headset itself comes with a hefty price tag, and you’re getting the quality to match that price tag. With a clear mic, good sound quality, and plenty of battery life, the Yealink BH76 is a great VoIP headset for all your business needs.
You can take this as a blanket recommendation for all of JPL’s headsets. Any one of them is a solid proposition, but we’re choosing to focus on the Element BT500D, which is a comfortable, high-quality option for your office. It connects wirelessly via Bluetooth dongle and also comes with an interchangeable headband, which JPL has patented. If you’re looking for the ultimate in comfort and quality when it comes to VoIP headsets, it doesn’t get much better than JPL’s range.
You may not have heard Leitner’s name before, but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. This company makes premium VoIP headsets for businesses that are serious about what they do. You’ve got two options: the Premium Lite and the Premium Plus. Both of them boast a staggering 350-foot wireless range and a stand, but the Plus adds in magnetic charging, a more streamlined design, and automatic pairing for supreme ease of use. Give Leitner a try; you won’t be sorry.
If you want something a little lighter and less “over-ear” than the other options on this list, then the BlueParrott M300-XT will more than suffice. It’s an in-ear unit with a clip that hooks over the top of your ear, so it’s perfect if you’re often on the go while you’re communicating. Despite its more compact form factor, the M300-XT doesn’t compromise on sound quality, so your clients or employers will be able to hear you perfectly. The microphone has noise cancelling built in, too!
Designed for use with Microsoft Teams, the Microsoft Modern USB Headset has all the things you’d expect from a great VoIP unit, as well as a dedicated Microsoft Teams button that lets you switch quickly to Teams whenever you need to. Of course, you’ll also find a noise-reducing mic, good-quality sound, and lightweight construction so that you can wear the headset all day without worrying about comfort. If you want a simple option that gets the job done, the Modern USB Headset will take care of that.
Finally, we have this neckband offering from EPOS. Most VoIP headsets on the market right now are either over-ear or on-ear options, but the Adapt 460T is an in-ear headset with a built-in neckband for additional comfort. It’s perfect if you want something more lightweight and mobile, but still want the reassuring grip of an over-ear set. Like the Modern USB Headset, the Adapt 460T is certified for Microsoft Teams, so if that’s your conferencing software of choice, you could definitely do a lot worse than this headset.
