Headset or Earbud which one would you choose?

Over the ear versus in the ear? I know what a weird question to ask. It has to do with the reality of earbuds. There are two types, wireless and wired. There are also two distinctions over the ear and in the ear. I have two sets of in the ear and two sets of over the ear headsets that I use for my cell phone. I will say the following about each type:

If I want to listen to music, I use the in-the-ear buds

If I need to talk on the phone, I use the over the ear headset.

In part, that is because, with the over the ear headset,s, you move the microphone away from your mouth, and you are on mute. With the earbuds, I have to mute the phone. When you are on a call, being able to mute and unmute by moving the microphone is a huge value for me. The other value and issue with the over the ear headsets is the time of year. In the winter, the over the ear headsets provide extra protection for my ears. In the summer, they get sweaty. So in the summer if I am outside while talking on a conference call, I use them in the earbuds.

There are many of both on the Market. I use Poly and Jabra headsets. My in the ear are only Polycom, and my over the ear headsets are from both. I did a review of the Polycom Voyager over the ear headsets, and I use them quite often.

I know not a lot of folks on Virily use headsets with their phones. I do use them every day. One of the risks you need to be aware of is not to allow the volume to go to high. You can damage your ears, putting a high noise source that closes to your eardrums.

Makes sure if you do decide to buy headsets to consider three things:

  • Wired or wireless, both are good. But what works for you?
  • Over the ear or in the ear, both are good, what works for you?
  • This one for all headsets and earbuds, make sure the headset you get or the earbuds you get support ANC (automatic noise canceling).
