We all use headphones on a daily basis; they are already part of our lives. That is why it is necessary to choose the ones that best adapt to our lifestyle, needs and musical tastes. Music is an important part of our lives. Our parents and grandparents enjoyed music in a very different way; today's life is much busier; so we do not usually have the privilege of listening to music in a relaxed way at full volume in our house. That's why headphones have become our most used means to listen and enjoy music. A headset can provide a very good sound quality for a very affordable price, unlike a stereo since there is no need to deal with the acoustics of the room, the placement, etc.

Headset/headphones for office-based professions especially insurance agent
Nowadays, headphones are not only needed for listening to music but also for listening to conversations or more precisely, phone calls. This is the main reason why headphones are needed in a variety of busy office activities. Especially for some office-based professions such as insurance agents, marketing agents, customer service, and so forth. They need to make sure they can hear phone calls very clearly or they just lead their clients into obscure talks.
Now we have reached the point of "how to choose the most suitable headset for office activities."
Of course wireless type is the most recommended type but how to choose the best of the wireless ones? In addition to reading some important reviews, hopefully this post can be useful for you.

To choose an office headset, I recommend the following steps:

Delimit your budget
The first thing you have to choose is the money you want to invest in your headphones.

I have to recommend not to skimp to the maximum, since, although there are thousands of very cheap headphones usually have a very questionable sound fidelity, a poor construction etc. I think it is better to invest in a good quality headset that can last 5 years perfectly to buy the cheapest you find every 5 months because they have broken the cable. It is my advice. Once you have your budget clear you will have to move on to the next step. You may find a headset for less price than you had thought and does not mean that it will sound worse. The price does not indicate the quality of the headphones but a minimum you have to invest, obviously.

Portables
They are not introduced in our ear canal, they rest on our ear and are usually resistant, not very heavy and above all very easy to transport. They are the ideal headphones to carry in your bag or backpack when going to study, work or travel.

You might consider the Full-size ones
The full-size headphones cover the entire ear and are the most common. As a general rule they are the ones with the highest sound quality and the most comfortable. There are open or closed and circumaural or supra-aural, both provided by headset plus.

Circumaural and supra-aural

• Circumaural: are those that completely surround the ear. The main characteristic of these headphones is that, being slightly separated from the ear, they generate a greater natural sensation of the stereo field and a more linear and precise reproduction of frequencies. They are also more comfortable since they do not rest on your ears.

• Supra-aural: cover the entire ear but without surrounding it, so they rest on it. They usually isolate a little worse in the case of closed and are not as comfortable as circumaural, but are usually more portable.

Open or closed?

As its name suggests, there are closed headphones that isolate both the sound from the outside and the sound that people can hear by your side. For an office, public transport etc. you need closed helmets so they do not disturb your hearing or bother nearby people.

The open ones let out the sound outside, so you'll have a sound scene that's usually much wider. In some high-end helmets you get to feel that the music comes from a live concert, in the closed the music sounds in the "interior" of your head, away from the usual sensation of listening to music.
