Posts Tagged ‘put headphones to use’
PC headsets are one of those things that we tend to purchase, intending to use on services such as skype, and then chuck them in a draw – never to see the light of day again. Well yesterday, I had a brainwave – why not use them with my mobile phone?!?!?
The problem with my phone is – there is no good way of using it whilst also working on your computer. Typing whilst holding a mobile is almost impossible (or at least reduces typing speed to a crawl). But when using a mobile hands free via its speaker phone – it tends to pick up all the dings, clicks and keyboard taps from your computer – making chatting with a customer impossible.
But a quick search on Amazon revealed the perfect answer – connectors and converters which take standard headset inputs (generally USB or twin 3.5mm din plugs) and converts them into a single din plug for Android/Nokia type phones or iPhone plugs for.. iPhones. For 70p, I can connect my headset to my mobile for the perfect hands free kit.
I have the headphones for listening to the caller (or music when I am not on the call), a high-quality microphone right in front of my face for crystal clear communication, and best of – its totally hands free meaning I can type or work whilst speaking. It’s so much better than the all in one ear phone and mic systems where the microphone is on the earphone cable which dangles halfway down your chest.
All for less than £1 or $1 from amazon.
If you have a headset gathering dust, one not put it to use whilst you work??
