Teletherapy is gradually becoming a normal thing. In a post-covid world, it’s become a default option. Quality teletherapy services, especially when it comes to speech teletherapy, are impossible without quality equipment.
You definitely need a microphone for telehealth sessions. Sure, you can use a smartphone or a laptop with a built-in microphone. But if you’re a professional you’re going to need a good mic and comfortable headphones. So why not pick both at once?
In this article, you’ll find out what we think is the best headset for teletherapy whether you’re an SLP therapist or psychotherapist or really anyone who works with their clients remotely.

1. Mpow HC6 Headset for Teletherapy
The Mpow HC6 headset is a very good option for teletherapy, webinars, calls, and anything elsewhere it is important to hear your voice clearly.
Mpow HC6 is the most optimal solution for your goals at this price. They are good for teletherapy, online conferencing, Skype. You can listen to music with this headset, but these are not the best headphones for listening to music.
Appearance and comfort are average, although everyone has their own opinion about this. The ear cushions are soft and will not strain with prolonged use. The headband is also padded so you can wear it at least all day without discomfort. A nice feature is the swivel bowls, which is very convenient when transporting the headset. By the way, the microphone can also be rotated 270 degrees.
The Mpow HC6 can be connected via both USB (for PC or laptop) and 3.5mm jack (for smartphones). If you have an iPhone with a zipper, you will need an adapter.
As I said, the sound quality in the headphones is not bad, but not the best either. You can listen to music, but for this, it is better to purchase music headphones. For teletherapy, conferences, phone calls, and other conversations, the sound quality will be more than sufficient, the voices will be heard clearly and well.
The main advantage of this headset is the microphone, it is just perfect for conversations. A built-in sound card enhances noise cancellation and makes the whole teletherapy experience smooth and enjoyable. If you have a fan or TV in the background, the microphone will filter out unnecessary sounds, and the other person will only hear your voice.
2. Bose QuietComfort 35 II Headset for Teletherapy
I recommend QuietComfort 35 II as one of the best wireless headphones around. They can be used as a headset for conversations, thanks to their excellent noise cancellation. So for listening to music, the headphones have excellent balanced bass and treble sound.CHECK PRICE
Bose has spent over 40 years developing the world’s best noise canceling technology. They then challenged themselves to make it wireless. The result: QuietComfort 35 II.
Only by turning them on will you immediately dissolve into silence. Your favorite tracks will unfold in a new, rich, and clear sound as if you heard them for the first time. This is all thanks to the very precise placement of the microphones integrated inside and outside the ear cups.
It is generally accepted that a wireless connection will drain the battery faster. Bose has a different opinion. How? The lithium-ion battery has been specially designed so that its size and capabilities optimally solve the problem of long-term listening and does not create discomfort in using the headphones.
Now you can use them for up to 20 hours on a wireless connection, which is very important for wireless headphones. By connecting with a cable, you are guaranteed up to 40 hours of continuous work.
The quality of the materials used is also important. So the QC35’s headband isn’t just soft to the touch, it looks expensive. Bose has used premium faux Alcantara suede as the finishing material. Such material provides special comfort and is conducive to listening at least all day long.
The headphones also have a customizable button for the voice assistant Google Assistant or Siri. The button can be configured to select the noise canceling level.

What to Look for When Choosing the Best Headsets for Teletherapy
The microphone is one of the most important items when choosing a headset for teletherapy . The quality of the microphone may affect your therapist’s response. During a conversation, you should not hear what is happening in the background, but only your voice should be transmitted. This requires a headset with a noise canceling microphone.
Comfort is the second most important criterion. The ear pads and preferably the headband should be soft. Especially if you plan to wear headphones for a long time, you should take this into account.
If you are looking for a wireless headset, you should pay attention to the battery capacity, how long it can work on a single charge.
The price shouldn’t be big for you. You can always find a suitable option for the price, which should be enough for your requirements. But the cheapest is also not worth buying, usually, such goods are of poor quality.
