Headset recommendation for Skype lessons

 

Why a good headset is necessary

Good understanding is everything. If you want to talk online, especially in a training situation, you need a high-quality headset.
Cheap headsets between 10 and 20 euros are a lot in the market, but either they are poorly manufactured, have a miserable sound or bad seating.

From our experience, it's worth to invest a little more in a headset, because the voice and sound quality is a very important factor during online language learning.

Which type of headset you choose depends on your most common application (mobile, home, desktop, notebook or tablet), but also on the desired sound and voice quality, the expected influence of external noise and the comfort of use.
But, the most important recommendation is: It is best to put different models on, test and compare even before buying.

For those who do not have the opportunity, we have selected some wired and wireless models that have proven to Skype, Adobe connect or Google Hangouts. Some are also certified by Skype. (last revision: April 2018)

   

Characteristics of the selected headsets

  • microphon with noise cancelling
  • volume control
  • good compatibility with common operating systems / usually no extra software required
  • good price / performance ratio
