What is the best noise cancelling microphone for remote working?

A lot of our customers are asking us about the best noise cancelling microphones for WFH purposes. A noise cancelling microphone means that the cacophony of background noise produced by kitchen taps, barking dogs, crying babies and slamming doors can be filtered out by the microphone.

For years we’ve been recommending the headsets from Jabra and Plantronics. The Jabra 75 (connection type: USB A + Bluetooth) and Plantronics Blackwire C5220 (connection type: USB A + C) are both highly recommended. These are the Toyota Lexus of the headset world which use a robust no-nonsense design, offer excellent audio quality (in and out) and are super-reliable. Moreover, they work very well with common video conferencing apps such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Lifesize. This all means you can enjoy hassle-free video conference calls without the drama.
