Best Earbuds for phone calls

If you’re out and about listening to the headset and someone calls you, it’s much more convenient to talk into the headset than to take it off and use the phone. Since almost every pair of headsets has a built-in microphone and controls, it’s easier than ever to take a phone call wherever you are. While monaural type Bluetooth headsets are still quite common among people who use the phone a lot, we haven’t reviewed many of them yet, so in this article we’ll also look at regular Bluetooth headsets with good microphones.

Sony WI-1000XM2

The best Bluetooth headphones for phone calls that we have tested are the Sony WI-1000XM2. Unlike most truly wireless or wireless over-the-ear headsets, the neckband headset has an in-line microphone that places the microphone closer to the mouth. The result is decent overall performance, ensuring that anyone you talk to will hear you clearly.

These headphones support multi-device pairing, which is great if you want to be connected to your PC and smartphone at the same time. They also feature an active noise cancellation (ANC) system that can help block out noises like office conversations. Although their sound profile is slightly dark, you can customize them to your liking using the graphic equalizer and presets in their companion app. The battery last for up to 6.8 hours with a useful standup mode to conserve battery.

While the microphone has decent recording quality, it has some trouble separating your voice from moderate background noise. If you’re calling from a busy street, your voice may be drowned out. Its silicone neckband can also snag on long hair, which can be uncomfortable. If you prioritize the performance of your headset’s microphone, it’s worth checking out.
