A Mono or Duo Headset: Which is Better for You?

Mono headsets only have one earpiece, leaving your other ear uncovered. Whereas a duo headset encompasses both of your ears. 

The question is— what are the factors to consider when choosing between a mono and duo headset?

The Main Difference Between a Mono and Duo Headset

A mono headset is perfect for times when the noise levels are low. However, if the background is noisier, a duo headset works better. 

Some people prefer to have one ear uncovered by a headset speaker as they want to hear their surrounding sounds. 

On the other hand, there are people who prefer to have both ears covered to minimise distraction around them. 

If you are looking for a good pair of dual headset, consider the SHOKZ Opencomm Bone Conduction Stereo Bluetooth Headset.
