I frequently travel and have to conduct meetings at Starbucks and the background noise (people talking/coffee grinding) makes it very unpleasant for folks on the other end of the call. Can anyone recommend a headset that I can use with my mobile phone or laptop (Skype/Lync) and will help eliminate the background noise for meeting attendees? Although it would be nice to hear the other end very loud and clear, it’s more important they hear me clearly without the background noise.
I’ve tested various headsets at Starbucks, including the Bost QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones and the Plantronics Blackwire C720-M Wired Headset, but both couldn’t block the background noise out enough and irritated folks on the other end.
I look forward to your recommendations.
