Which headsets?

Nowadays, it seems natural to equip contact centre agents with headsets. But not all headsets are created equal. Check our "Tell Me About" IP Office guide to see which headsets to recommend with IPOCC or ACCS and make sure the quality of audio calls are not blamed wrongly on the solution.
