If you’re working from home and you need to block out playing children or loud sounds of life outside, a good noise-cancelling headset can give you and those you’re talking to clarity during work calls. To suppress the sound of breathing and clicking, get a headset with a large driver and microphone air-shock filters. An adjustable mic will allow you to place it directly in front of your mouth while talking. Noise-cancelling in both the ear phones and the mic will make conference-call clarity a two-way street.

Wireless or wired? The former will give you more flexibility to move around, but Bluetooth connections can sometimes cause the audio to lag. Wired will pretty much chain you to your desk during calls, but the sound quality will be more clear, and you’ll never have to worry about recharging or running out of battery power during an important meeting.

A dual mic configuration ensures uninterrupted audio if the primary mic cuts out or if there is some kind of wireless glitch. This will help prevent those pesky “Can you hear me now?” moments.

What operating system does your computer or mobile device use? In order for your noise-cancelling headset to work, you’ll need one that is compatible, whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, Linux, Android, or Apple’s iOS. Whatever system you use, in order to exert more control over what happens on your end of the call, look for a headset with in-line mic controls for volume, muting, answering calls and hanging up.
