Headsets : Helping People Multitask

By: Dennis Jaylon

Explaining the meaning and utility of the headsets to a generation for which this device is an integral part of functioning would be like showing the lamp to the sun. It is, as all of us know, a gadget that frees the hands of the user, while he is attending a phone call, so that he can perform another task at the same time. It is a boon, especially for professionals who are hard pressed for time and have to multitask.

Headsets are not a new concept any more. They have become an integral part of the modern day lifestyle of humans. Despite being around for quite some time, they are still popular and very much in synchronisation with the current brigade of gizmos. In fact, they have even adapted and developed accordingly to fit in the current scenario, hence escaping the outdated label.

There have been numerous occasions when we have felt that we could utilise our hands much better than just using them for holding on to the phone receiver. In this fast paced world, every second is precious. Using a headphone, has made life more convenient and manageable for not only professionals, but even for others, from all spheres of life. People are able to squeeze in more work in the limited hours that are in a day, and at the same time remain connected with the outside world.

Headsets initially came with wires, but now we have wireless headsets as well, commonly known as Bluetooth. The biggest benefits of headphones is that we can do a lot of things while chatting with our friends, family and colleagues on the phone. No longer is a phone call considered a handicap, especially when we are in the middle of a task. We do not need to sacrifice talking and socialising for work and at the same time our work will not suffer because of talking on the phone.

Whether it is while driving, cooking, working in the office doing any other task, headsets help users utilise each and every moment productively, even when they are engaged in trivial banter.
