Increase Productivity with a Computer Headset

One of the easiest ways to increase productivity in the office is with a Computer Headset, and choosing a wireless Computer Headset opens things up even more. Put it simply, these headsets allow you to talk on the telephone whilst still going about other daily tasks, you can speak, move around, organize your desk, search computer files, do a spot of typing, search through a filing cabinet, go to the drinks machine – you can do anything you want which requires two hands whilst speaking on the telephone if you don’t have to hold it to your ear with 50% of your “handpower” – one hand.

Many professionals in offices around Australia could not manage half of their daily workload these days without their trusty Computer Headset – they allow them to carry on important business conversations whilst still working on their computer – you don’t have to stop what you are doing every time the phone rings, you can simply carry on without a hitch. A wireless Computer Headset is simply a headset with a microphone attached, just leave it on your head throughout the day (many of them are so light and comfortable that you’ll forget they are there) allowing users to speak via the internet to colleagues, clients and potential clients right across Australia and the world beyond.

Some of the latest designs of Computer Headset are not only compatible for use with a computer to speak using the internet; there are also some Bluetooth headsets which can be used with mobile phones as well. Your computer will need to be installed with a Bluetooth receiver and away you go. When you are not busy speaking to clients you can use your Computer Headset to listen to your favourite tunes – ssshhh, better keep the volume down and don’t tell the boss, if you keep saying “mmmm” every now and then with the odd “okay” thrown in he’ll be none the wiser, just don’t start singing the lyrics.
The Computer Headset is certainly nothing new but the increase in quality has been pretty remarkable. The majority of them have volume control and many other options making them easy to use, making it easy for you to hear the caller crisply and clearly and meaning that they can hear whatever you are saying clearly too.

Here is a list of things you can whilst speaking on a cordless Computer Headset in the office when the boss is around;
  • Walk around from desk to desk delivering important papers
  • Search through filing cabinets at the other side of the office
  • Work on the computer – typing, searching files, filling in forms etc
  • Do a little manual form filling (some offices in Australia still do that you know)
  • Make or fetch the boss a coffee

And stuff you can do with a Computer Headset when he isn’t around;
  • Listen to music
  • Play computer games whilst talking to clients
  • Knit
  • Clean your shoes
  • File / paint your nails
  • Use your imagination . . .
