I got this Logitech Wireless one. Good thing is its wireless and it's got a microphone. However from the few times I used it, I have faced some noise voice during conversations.

I have a Technics headset and it's like putting yourself in a box of silence. I had coworkers YELL at me and still not hear a thing. It's wired though, and puts a bit of a pressure on my ears so it hurts after an hour of usage.

I wouldn't recommend any wireless headsets because of the weight of the extra hardware and batteries.

MBH: I thought thats against work policy :)

MBH said...

Bashar,
What is? The yelling or the indifference? :p

The yelling is when they want me, call me but I don't answer because I don't hear them in the first place (plus playing techno :p)

Bashar said...

MBH: I mean using those headsets at work usually is against policy :)

Dandoon: madri :p

Bashar: i didn't like logitech headphones ...

MBH: i didnt try Technics before, .. do you think it will be better than Bose?

Bashar,
I'm in IT and NOT in support, so I don't get calls nor "visitors" -- rules & conditions do NOT apply :p

Nemo,
It's VERY high in quality! But I can't use my headsets for more than an hour...

You should find a headset that its holes fit the ear's pinna.

but i really needed something that cancels all the noise in the office ...
i think you know how its annoying sometimes -- not that i'm a quiet employee, i'm a source of the noise too

Bashar said...

MBH: Well I'm in IT too. It's just it usually is company policy, but we never obey the law do we :)

NEMO: Dunno. Mine is definitely not best for noise reduction.

MBH said...

Bashar,
Lucky us, we don't have such a policy :p

Nemo,
My cousin has these ear buds and he says they're great for when going on a walk or jogging.

For noise/external sound cancellation, you'll need a full headset that covers your ears properly, and come to think of it, I think full noise blocking can only be achieved when there's a pressure against the ear :/

I'll keep it mind and if I catch a decent headset I'll let you know.
