b.  Average Noise – A single ear or monaural headset with a noise-canceling feature would work in this environment and allows you to be aware of what is going on around you. This solution would work in a typical open office environment.

c.  High Noise – If you are working in a very high noise environment and need to block out the noise of a person sitting right beside you, then a dual ear or binaural noise-canceling headset would be the best solution.
