Project Telecom Professional Binaural Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headset, ANC for Calls and Music

Headsets play as big a part in the life of recreational gamers and people who use video call software, as they do in the day to day lives of call centres and sales staff. With more people working from home than ever before, noise-cancelling headsets are crucial.

The key feature of this particular headset and why it will make a great gift for any of the people mentioned above is the ANC or active noise cancellation it utilises. This helps to reduce the background and surrounding noise in both the microphones and speakers of the headset by picking up any low-frequency sounds and neutralising them. It may sound like a bold claim, but Project Telecom has a noteworthy reputation, so the fact that they say this headset can reduce as much as 95% of all background noise, is important to consider.
