Air Tube Headset – Why I Love It
The Air Tube Headset are perfect for longer term use. I am not a fan of sticking the buds of earphones into my ears – I find them irritating, and have always preferred headphones for this reason.
The Headset is comfortable for long periods of time.
I use mine on all of my calls with clients and for meetings.
I do also use them with my iPhone so that I can have the phone on the other side of my shielded case and be safe while I use it (which is rare).
