1. Choosing a headset

What headset you might want to purchase is likely to depend upon: We have tested Plantronics headsets thoroughly within Telecommunications; and would recommend them as they are good quality, comfortable and durable. However there are other reputable brands on the market, such as Sennheiser and low-cost alternatives such as the Doro headsets.
To place an order for a headset, email us quoting your cost code (if paying by internal transfer), we will place the order for you and have it delivered to you next day (providing the item is in stock).
