Last updated by Daniel Barnes 9 days ago

Our experts have hand-tested a huge range of headsets to find the best models for working from home.


For people working from home, a headset is an essential piece of kit. If you are unable to make it into the workplace, then a headset means you can still communicate easily with colleagues. Systems like Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Skype for Business all allow you to keep connected even when working from home- and a good quality headset lets you take full advantage of this.

Since so many people rely headsets on a daily basis, it should come as no surprise that there are literally hundreds of them products to choose from. But how can you be sure you are making the right choice? Not to worry- the liGo team are here to help!

We have been selling headsets for over a decade, and we also use them ourselves here in the liGo office. Thanks to all this experience, we certainly know what makes a great headset, whether in the office or working from home. Ultimately, if you are going to be using a headset at home, then it needs to meet your own personal requirements. For instance, are you looking for a wireless headset to offer some extra flexibility? Or would you prefer the peace of mind that comes with a corded headset, knowing that you don’t need to charge it up before using it? You’ll want to ensure that your chosen headset will connect up to the device you want to use it with. There are also a number of smaller factors to think about, from wearing style to battery life and range.

Since so many different people use headsets, we've tried to include something for everyone on our Top 10 list. Whatever your budget, we have a solution to suit you. If you would like more information on any of the products listed below, or have a question about compatibility, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our customer service team. We will be more than happy to help!

What we look for in a headset:


  • Sound Quality

    We have a panel of experts and focus groups who test every headset to find out how easy they are to set-up and use.
