Does anyone have a phone headset (probably Bluetooth) they like? I have the earbuds type but the mic quality isn't great and I make a TON of phone calls

@tripofmice I have both a set of Bose QC3 and Aeropex Aftershokz, both work absolutely fantastic for making calls. Different styles of headphones though...Bose is noise canceling over the ears and Aftershokz are more for exercising but are good for bike commuting as well (so you can hear traffic, this is why I bought them).

@rainer @tripofmice Second the QC3 headphones recommendation, if that's the kind of thing you're looking for. I was wary of using them as a phone/zoom headset because they don't have an arm to bring the mic nearer my mouth, but they actually give the clearest recordings of my voice of anything I've tried that isn't professional recording equipment.

@tripofmice I’ve always had good luck with Plantronics headsets. It looks like they’ve rebranded as “Poly” now?

Here’s one from another company, I’ve never heard of them but they’re currently the Wirecutter’s top recommendation. Supposed to have superior battery life and noise cancellation. https://www.blueparrott.com/on-the-road-headsets/blueparrott-m300-xt#%23204347

@tripofmice I've got the best experience with the AirPods Pro. Especially my peers report much clearer voice over the Bose QC series that I tried as well.

And of course the best headset is the one you always have in your pocket ;)

I have several Miniso wired headsets that cost CDN$10 each and are astoundingly good for that price point. That is, they're incredibly durable, have not-bad sound quality, a decent mic, and fold to a small package. I was using mine as a spare for travel but it's good enough that now I just use it when it's handy, which is all the time.
