Top 3 Best Mic On Headset 2021 - You Need To Hear These VIDEO - Headset Advisor

In this blog, I’m going to discuss my top 3 picks for noise cancelling headphones. Two of my picks are Bluetooth models, while the third one is a DECT headset.

The difference is notable in that Bluetooth headsets allow you to connect to your mobile devices, but with the addition of a USB dongle/adapter, you can use the same headset on your computer. Also, if your computer is Bluetooth enabled, you may find success in connecting to the computer via Bluetooth as well. 

On the other hand, DECT headsets are more commonly used with desk phones, and in the process, will give you significantly more wireless range when compared to a Bluetooth model. 

In this blog, I’ll not get into any details pertaining to the headset differences, or their ancillary features. Instead, I’ll focus on the main topic which is sound quality that each model provides. 

Before I begin, I did want to let you know that I recorded a Youtube video on this very subject. In this video, I not only compare the three different headsets, but I test each one to see how the microphone sounds, and how well it performs in removing distracting, unwanted, annoying, productivity decreasing noise.

Yes, you can read this blog and obtain the essence of things. But, if you watch the video, you get the added benefit of not only seeing the different headsets, but you also get to hear them live. Worth checking out I think. If you agree, the video I’m referring to is located below. 

Rather than keeping you in suspense wondering which are the top 3 microphones on wireless headsets, you’ll find them immediately below.

Up front, I need to say that opinions on sound can be subjective. In this blog, I’m sharing with you my opinion as to the headsets I feel have the best microphones available today. If you watch my video, you may not agree with me, and that’s ok.

But, I have to say that I test headsets regularly for a variety of things including sound quality, and noise reduction, and in my view, these three are the best of the best. 

A good quality microphone will accomplish two things; 

  1. Make you sound really good on your calls (no clipping, no distortion, just a clean, clear, rich sound) 
  2. Kill unwanted background noise at a high level (nobody wants to hear dogs barking, babies crying, landscapers mowing etc, while engaged on an important call. It’s simply distracting). 

Believe me when I say, not all headsets (wired or wireless), do a superior job of this. Clearly, some do better than others, and to a degree, you get what you pay for. 

The three headsets featured in this blog have elevated the microphone game to a higher level when compared to your typical Bluetooth or DECT headset.

Among the enhancements you get includes: 

  • Multiple microphones. These microphones work in concert with each other to deliver optimum sound, and/or, noise reduction. 
  • In two of the models, Acoustic Fence, or Sound Shield technology reduces unwanted background noise well beyond what normal headsets are capable of. 

Conclusion

The Jabra Evolve2 85 is the only headset among the three that doesn’t feature enhanced noise reduction technology like the Poly Voyager Focus 2, and the Yealink WH66. That said, I feel the Evolve2 85 still does a great job at reducing background noise as evidenced by the noise tests I performed in my video.

As I said early on in this blog, the best microphones will not only reduce noise well, but it will provide great sound quality. With this in mind, I have to say that the Yealink WH66 falls short in the sound quality area.

It’s the very best in noise reduction (in my humble opinion), but the sound quality was a bit tinny to me. That wasn’t the case with the Jabra Evolve2 85, and the Poly (formerly Plantronics) Voyager Focus 2.

Both of these headsets provide a nice, rich sound that is notably better than what the Yealink provides. I’d be hard pressed to choose one over the other as both sound great. 

If you place high value on eliminating unwanted background noise, you really need to take a close look at the Yealink WH66. Simply stated, it’s superb in eliminating distracting background noise. Have a listen to my video, and you’ll see what I mean. 

Are these three headsets ideal for everyone? Absolutely not. After all, you might have a budget that makes any of these three premium headsets prohibitive.

Maybe your need is for a Bluetooth headset with connection needs to mobile devices and mobility. Clearly, the Yealink wouldn’t be your solution given it’s a DECT headset. Assuming your needs match up with one of these wireless headsets, and your need is for a great sounding headset, one of these three models should fit the bill nicely.
