What is this about?
Wireless headsets are great. They free you from the need to be tethered with a cable to your device.
We noticed that you are using a wireless headset.
Wireless headsets have 3 disadvantages to them:
- The farther away you get from your device, the worse the connection is and the poorer the audio quality will be
- Most wireless headsets will add a bit of latency towards the call, degrading the quality when it comes to real time interaction with people in a meeting. This will be especially true if the network you are using exhibits high latency already (this will show up in the measurements in the round trip time metric value)
- Wireless headsets have internal batteries that require charging. On a low battery, performance will be degraded automatically by the headset itself
All in all, if you are looking to get hours of use a day from your headset in virtual meetings and calls, our suggestion is to opt for a wired headset instead.
Suggested actions to take
- Switch to a wired headset if you can
- Make sure the battery of your headset is charged properly
- Don’t be with your headset too far from your device. Distance matters to quality with wireless headsets
