Computer headsets that are connected over USB connection have excellent sound quality without noise. Noise is common with a few headsets that connect via computers’ audio inputs and outputs. Many devices are billed as “gaming” headsets, yet they are also excellent business tools. They allow you to interact with your device without disturbing other people or even holding a microphone.
Dictation is among the most popular applications for USB headsets. Modern speech recognition systems are incredibly accurate, particularly when trained and have a clean feed of your voice. The headsets have a well-placed microphone that provides excellent signal and makes dictation very convenient.
VoIP telephony and Unified Communications
The Voice-over-Internet-Protocol telephone systems and applications have made communication via computers common. If you are a diligent user of computer telephony, you can purchase USB headsets similar to professional ones intended for use with more conventional telephones.
The USB headsets give room for a natural approach to creating narration. Many don’t have sufficient sound quality for professional voiceover tasks. Moreover, a USB headset can be useful for creating explanatory or training content for multiple images that can be saved as videos.
Traditional Analog-Connection Headsets
An alternative for USB headsets is headsets with the traditional 3.5-mm plugs. Analog headsets link with your computer’s sound card, unlike USB headsets. They are also cheaper than USB-equipped sets. Thus, if your computer has superb sound quality over its 3.5-mm connections, analog headsets could be a preferable option.
The wireless USB headset
The cordless headset is a combination of a microphone and headphones connected via a USB connector to a device. It is used in online gaming/phoning and video telephony via a computer. A computer becomes a proficient telephone with multiple useful additional functions by utilizing a cloud telephone system and a headset.
A headset ensures that your hands are unoccupied and available for other activities during calls. By connecting the headset through a USB port, the computer doesn’t need an analog microphone input or speaker output. The headset adjusts to the digital USB standard.
During connection, the computer automatically acknowledges the USB headset and installs the required drivers. A manual installation is not compulsory. Often the headsets come with their controls for volume and microphone sensitivity. Professional telephony solutions have their buttons to mute or hold a call. Typical protocols for wireless communication are Bluetooth or DECT. DECT is advantageous because you can use it over great distances from the base station.
Different variants of USB headsets
The USB headsets come in three basic versions. Headsets with two earpieces and a mic on a bracket provide stereo playback. They also have fantastic audio quality, and they limit interference from ambient noise. Earcups can be attached to a headband or neckband.
Those with a microphone and one earpiece on a bracket allow users to discern surrounding noise and are easier to wear since they are lighter. The playback is limited to mono sound.
Headsets with in-ear headphones are also accessible. They are light and inconspicuous and have quality sound. On top of that, they are equipped with an integrated microphone in the cable.
