    Headphones for mobile & Skype Calls

    Hi,

    I travel a lot/WFH so use a mixture of myCo mobile and client softphone (laptop and mobile) for making calls. I've tried various mobile phone bundled headphones but I have come to the conclusion the ones I have are not the best. Therefore it's time to spend a bit of money.

    Wish list:
    Boom mic
    3.5mm jack
    Fairly discreet

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Can't go very discreet with a boom mic but I have used these before at a clientco and they work well.

    Jabra EVOLVE 40 headset with quality microphone

    I have the more expensive wireless version and they work equally well. There was a long discussion on this forum on wireless headsets too if you extend your search too.

      Thanks, I found the old thread but it looked like the suggestions were for desk phones. (I may have read it wrong) I'll take another look.

      As for discreet, I was thinking more about the overhead, massive noise cancelling headphones. Some can look really big. Something in ear would be perfect.

        I should add that a 3.5mm jack isn't mandatory. Laptop can handle Bluetooth so that is an option too

          Sennheiser Momentum 2 aebt. No boom mic, but proper headphones.
          I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.
          Hands... out infractions
          Face... the music
          Space... between the ears

            I use a Plantronics Voyager Legend, which works brilliantly for Facetime and phone calls, but for some reason it seems shakey with Skype. So not a very helpful suggestion, although it might just be that I have a duffer. Great BT earpiece / headset though

              They do look good, really discreet

                They aren't a bright colour, so that's discreet enough for me. If you want to stand out, they have a cream version.
                Also, if you travel a lot - noise cancelling, bluetooth for connecting to tablet/phone and will work off a normal 3.5mm jack or USB.

                  Sorry, I did mean it when I said they look good.
                  A bit big for what in looking for, that and the £250+ price tag. I'm far too tight...

                    I just got the Jabra Evolve 40's, can't rate them high enough, they are great for Skype (they have a 3.5mm jack that goes into a control unit which then connects to the PC though USB), the head set can be locked into place on the band when not in use.
