As many students are heading back to school, parents are learning that school budgets are strained, and they are now required to supply headsets or headphones for their children.
What's the difference between a headphone and a headset?
People often mix up headsets and headphones. Headphones have no microphones and can only be used for listening. Headsets have a microphone usually on an extended boom and can be used for listening and talking. We suggest that a headset is the best choice since it is more versatile offering more options. Headsets can be used for listen only learning labs, podcasts, webinars, remote learning, music, and they work with more devices.
