088 - What is Computer Headset

A Headset is a pair of headphones with a microphone attached. Headset consists of a receiver that lets you hear the person at the other end of the conversation, and a transmitter that converts your voice into electrical impulses to be transmitted to the other person. It is commonly used by call center agent.

A headset combines a headphone with a microphone. Most headsets are designed to be worn over the head like a headband. Headsets are made with either a single-earpiece or a double-earpiece. Headsets provide the equivalent functionality of a telephone handset but with hands-free operation.

The most basic use for a computer headset is to use it for listening or chatting. Headsets are helpful for filtering out surrounding noise, such as while working or while traveling. There are many different designs of headphones; some are designed to fit in the ear, while others may rest on top of the ears with a band that goes over the head.

A computer headset may also be used for an online game. Many games now allow players to communicate with one another while they are playing through the use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). VoIP is also frequently used for conversations between people who live in different countries, because it is typically much cheaper than to make a traditional phone call. In addition, many businesses and call centers provide computer headsets for their employees, so that their hands are free to type in keyboard and use a mouse.

To connect a headset: insert pink and green plugs into the matching color or symbol ports on your computer. For usb type, put the USB plug into any USB port on your computer.

Headset is also known as: headband or backphone.
