Jabra's totally wireless earphones feature dual microphones in each bud and a side-tone feature that allows you to hear your voice in the earphones as you talk. They work extremely well as a stereo headset for making calls. I have even worn them under a ski helmet and callers said they could hear me fine as I skied!
Jabra's new noise-canceling headphone, the Elite 85h ($300), is designed to compete with the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and Sony WH-1000XM3. Like those models, it's an excellent all-round noise-canceling headphone but where it clearly beats the Bose and Sony is as a headset for making calls. It's top notch.
The AirPods' look may not be everyone's cup of tea, but they do work really well as a headset. The new second-generation version features greater noise reduction, which helps callers hear you better when you're outside in noisier -- and potentially windier -- environments.
Apple owns Beats, and one of the plusses of that relationship is that a lot of the technology that went into the AirPods also went into Beats' true wireless earphones, the Powerbeats Pro. Like the AirPods, they too are excellent for making calls, and with a noise-isolating design, they keep more ambient sound out so you can hear callers better.
Microsoft's new premium noise-canceling headphones are equipped with eight microphones, including four beamforming mics (two on each ear cup) that not only help with making your voice sound clear on calls but also for issuing voice commands using Microsoft's Cortana digital voice assistant.
A lot of runners and bikers like to use bone-conduction headphones like AfterShokz's highly rated Trekz Air because they leave your ears open to hear the outside -- and traffic around you. But they're also very good for making calls and actually sound better for listening to speech than music.
The Plantronics Voyager Focus is the business-class version of the Plantronics BackBeat Sense. For music, it's going to sound the same as the BackBeat Sense, but as you can see from the picture, the Voyager Focus has a boom microphone. It also includes a USB dongle to connect directly to a PC. It's less than $150 on Amazon.
