The Best Office Headsets For A Busy Sales Team | Headset Advisor

If you're a sales leader with a team of reps making or taking calls, it's important to choose the best office headset for your teams needs.

It's important your sales team have headsets that are comfortable, sound great, and are easy to use so they can focus on calls, not their headset.

 

Every office environment is different, so before you make a decision, you'll want to ask these questions.

  1. Is my office loud enough to be distracting? You'll want headsets that cover both ears and offer a noise canceling microphone, so your sales team can hear and be heard crystal clear. If you're in a more quiet sales office or have your own office, having one ear covered is fine.
  2. Do I want my sales team to be wired or wireless? Wireless office headsets will give you the added benefit of being hands free and wire free, whereas wired headsets will save you money up front.
  3. What type of phone system is being used and what devices do I need connection to? Knowing what devices you need connectivity to will help you know the recommended and compatible headset choices to consider. Some sales teams use desk phones, whereas others use a mobile phone or computer, and aren't always in the office.

 

Top 11 Best Headsets For Busy Sales Teams


Discover D722- Best Wired Headset For Desk Phones In Loud Offices

 

The Discover D722 is the best headset we've come across that balances out perfectly between being lightweight, but also fully covering your ears with extremely soft ear cushions. As open offices have become more relevant, for years we've had requests from sales leaders for a headset that's lightweight, but fully encloses your ears to block out the distracting background noise. One major skill in sales is listening, so if you're not able to zone in on your prospects voice because of a loud office, that's ultimately going to produce less sales, and cause frustration for reps.

 

Pros:

+ Fully encloses your ears with pillow soft ear cushions, so you can block out background noise and zone in on calls.

+ Flexible noise canceling microphone reduces background noise, so your caller focuses on your voice, not the office noises.

+ Compatible with 98% of office desk phones. You'll need to know the make/model of phone, so you know what cord to order with the D722.

Cons:

- Could be uncomfortable for long periods of time

- Cord needs to be purchased depending on make/model of your office phone

Summary:

Investing in the best headset for sales calls is worth every penny. There's nothing worse than getting on a sales call and the person on the other end sounds like they're on speakerphone, or there's constant background distractions. On the flip side, being on a sales call and having many distractions around you can make it tough to zone in on your caller and focus. On average investing in a professional grade headset, you should expect to have your headset for 2-5+ years. If you or your sales team are on phone calls regularly, invest in the best headsets that will allow you to have more productive calls with prospects and customers!
