Due to the Covid-19 pandemic igniting a rapid shift to remote work, online meetings are becoming essential for business continuity. Meeting digitally is already complicated enough and it doesn’t help that many people weren’t prepared. The right equipment plays a huge part in the ultimate success of the virtual business world. As people rely on default peripherals that are integrated into their laptops, these remote meetings are plagued with muffled mic input and spotty audio quality. Not only that, but it’s often too easy to be distracted by the background noise of our bustling kitchen, or “office”. Therefore, we find it necessary to invest in a decent headset to help improve your experience while working from home.

A good headset allows you to not only clean up your mic input and hear your colleagues clearly, but allows you to filter out background noise– so you can stay focused and productive. Here are five great headsets, recommended by PCMag and Wirecutter, that you could use to help improve your home workstation.
