Deciding the best ESL headset for teaching English online is a tricky one. You could read endless reviews…or you could take a look at these 10 headsets most frequently purchased by teachers.
After looking at the DigiNo Amazon reports, these 10 headphones proved to be the most popular purchases for online classes.
So let's take a look…
3.5mm Computer Headset with Microphone and Noise Cancelling capabilities.
Lightweight and Wired Headphones. Perfect Headset for Skype as well as online teaching platforms.
This is the popular choice among online teachers so it must be doing the business in class!
The Logitech H390 comes with padded headband and ear pads for long teaching stretches.
This combined with its noise cancelling microphone and affordable price make it a very popular buy in the ESL world.
This little silver set has hit the top of the popularity charts also. The reliability and affordability of Logitech seems to be a good match for us bargain hunting online teachers.
The last of the Logitech line in this last ends with the H111. This is a nice and cheap headset with all you need to teach online…however, don't expect premium quality.
We are back with Mpow, and this time…it's got an upgrade!
But all I can really see that is different between this one and the previous Mpow is the color. So it seems that more online teachers prefer a black Mpow headset…but the black one is slightly cheaper.
These on-ear headphones with noice cancelling and hands-free mic, is around the same price as the Mpow, but just seems slightly clunkier in design.
Mpow and Logitech are battling it out for the hearts and cash of online teachers it seems.
These Foldable Computer Headphones with Retractable Noise Cancelling Mic are compatible with All-Platforms.
And their HD audio quality makes them the most expensive Mpow on this list…and therefore, the least popular of the three.
These ear bud Wireless Headphones with built-in microphone are designed for Running and Sport Workouts…which is why I was shocked to see them as popular amongst teachers.
I personally use Apple AirPods to teach online (when I remember to charge them)…as I love the freedom of bluetooth teaching…so I guess that's what makes these cheaper alternatives a popular ESL headset.
I never thought I'd see a Sennheiser in this list…but this beast is a popular buy amongst online teachers! It's superior quality is absolutely reflected in its price. This is the most expensive one so far…
Another Sennheiser…for gaming?! Makes sense when you think about it. I know that, when I finish a class, I have been known to load up Steam for a quick game of Football Manager 19…seamlessly transitioning from work to play without moving seating position…or adjusting headset!
And that completes this top 10 list of the most popular ESL headsets!
So make sure to click and check all the reviews and prices on Amazon before landing on the headset that will be hugging your ears for the numerous hours of your life.
Found a pair yet? Cool!
Let's put those headsets to use…
