Headphones Are For Many Uses

Aug 17, 2007
In our professional lives, we are increasingly on the go. Fewer and fewer people work out of an office setting in which they sit there all day. When they are in an office setting, they are probably sharing a cubicle with one or two other workers. This can result in distracting noises or competing sounds, especially if everyone's talking on the phone at once. There are many headphones that can solve the problems of either the professional on the go or the professional who needs to reduce external sound and hear what's going on from their computer or phone.

With developments like online seminars (webinars) and other audio-based learning, it's common for sound to be coming out of your computer. Unfortunately, if you share your workspace with others who are doing the same, it can be disturbing for everyone. One solution is to use headphones. Earbuds are probably the best type of headphones to use in this situation since they don't completely block out external sound (so you can still hear the phone ringing, etc.) but they block out enough that you won't get distracted...and they direct the sound right into your ear so you don't distract others. And, unlike the kind of headphone that simply goes over your ear and has a headband over your head, you won't mess up your hair!

On the phone, a set of headphones that also have a microphone attached provide an extra benefit as well. Aside from hearing the person clearly and not distracting those around you, you also have your hands free to type or make notes during your phone call; you don't have to cradle your phone in your shoulder and try to type at the same time.

Professionals who are on the road are also on their cell phones, another ideal place to use headphones with a microphone. There have been many advancements in cell phone head phones in the past 2 or 3 years. One excellent advancement is the headphone that places the earbuds right in your ear and has a microphone that sits comfortable at the base of your chin. Another new headphone is the kind that clips over your one year and is wireless. The powerful microphone on the headphone sits just beside your cheek. Both are great so you can keep your hands free.

Traveling goes hand in hand with business: usually on airplanes. If you find that you're traveling for business, headphones are almost mandatory travel gear to take with you. Once again, earbuds are the ideal choice so you can enjoy music or the in-flight movie without taking up a lot of room in your bag when you don't need them.

Remember to put safety over convenience. If you are traveling in your car and your phone rings, pull over to the side of the road and complete your call. You may feel safe because you're using wireless headphones so both of your hands are on the wheel but your mind is not on the road! It's easy to get distracted in a phone call and this is a growing safety concern on our nations highways.
