I Love My New Boomerang
October 15, 2020 1:03pm CST
As many of you know I have been working from home since early spring. It has its ups and it has its downs. I have learned that I need to look after me to be able to find the very best equipment that I can to do my job successfully. I take calls for a living, so being able to hear the customers calling and for them to be able to hear me is paramount. Finding something with Bluetooth was a step in the right direction. I wore out my old iPhone as a result of the battery running so low so many times during the day and not getting a full charge when needed. Last week I found this boomerang type of headset, or neckset I should say. It is so ergonomic, it weighs no more then a pound, at the most, and sits on my shoulders. The speakers are on the top of the device. I can hear my customers and best of all they can hear me. I do not have to wear one of those other headsets, the larger of which weighs so much, and the Bluetooth on it was not great and failed often. I hope that the Bluetooth lasts on this device. But don't you just love the advancements for equipment needed to work from home? ~Photo is mine

@Juliaacv I hope you don't have too many phone calls from clients. Clients also need to be smart and be responsible, and learn about how to use their bank account. How to do actions from the website, how to use their card, track the expanses...
@JudyEv I was never much for my cellphone until we moved 3 years ago. We moved too far to be able to keep our home telephone number, so we decided not to have another landline, just to use our cells. And cellphone popularity and use has really risen in the past 3 years, so I am alright with it now.
That is great. I will be able to have our accountant write off the headsets when she does our income taxes. Our son uses an earpiece headset, its small, but it can do a lot of damage to one's ear. I hope that your son has a good work from home experience. I will be here for a while, which is such a blessing.
That is great news. I hope that you have an area that you can work comfortably from. They are going to give us special software to run the phone lines on, a soft phone. Currrently you have to either use your cellphone or your landline, the calls are routed from the virtual desk to your phone without your telephone number being disclosed. I had to replace my cellphone a few months ago because the battery wouldn't stay charged because it was always being used and never fully charged because of work.
Not directly they do not. We receive $100 monthly for connectivity, which should be for your internet, but you can use it towards headsets. I will submit my receipts at income tax time to see if they can put them thru. I have spent $200 in 6 months on these devices.
