Headphones and microphones have never been as essential to everyday life as they have been in 2020. For most people, they make do with some spare earbuds that come with a new phone, or they just stick with an old headset they've been using for years.
But now we're all learning just how important it is to be heard clearly when we speak through our computers. Many of us are also pushing ourselves to not just spend time online, but to be more creative and to upgrade our online persona. How we sound is just as important as how we look, maybe even more so, when we're taking all our meetings online.
Even the most dedicated users out there, whether always working hard or playing even harder, find themselves spending more time than ever with their headphones on and a microphone front and centre on their desk. It means your gear needs to be comfortable to wear, convenient to use, and flexible.
Regardless of how 2020 plays out, the future is sure to have a lot more video calling now that the world has grown more attuned to the concept. What this means is the future of our personal digital presence deserves better than built-in microphones and tangled old earbuds.
