The Right Earbuds and Headphones Can Boost Employee Productivity and Focus

Audio products from Bose are designed to ease the transition back to the office

Workers across the country are headed back to the office, even if just part-time or as part of a hybrid schedule. That means professionals everywhere are getting reacquainted with the office, adjusting to new schedules and routines, and once again embracing the power of collaboration.

But after a couple years spent working from home – on their own terms – workers are finding a host of new distractions in the workplace. The relative quiet of home has been replaced with coworkers’ conversations; peers and direct reports can drop in instead of sending Slack messages; and in general, there’s more noise. These fresh obstacles can be distracting and frustrating, and they can also lower productivity, all of which negatively impacts company results.

Some ways employees can fight disturbances include working in quiet areas around the campus, listening to music that aids concentration, and wearing noise-cancelling earbuds or headphones.

The power of noise-cancelling earbuds and headphones

Noise-cancelling earbuds and headphones can help workers shut out the background noise and control the sounds around them according to their own needs and preferences. These innovative headphones use tiny microphones to detect exterior sounds and then emit a frequency in the opposite direction of the ambient noise, neutralizing it. That means listeners can block out unwanted distractions without having to crank up the volume.

With interruptions minimized, team members can focus more intently and achieve higher levels of productivity. They can also keep sound at healthy levels, and, by getting more work done each day, keep stress to a minimum. Even better, noise-cancelling headphones are perfectly compatible with the new class of audio-dependent office software, including Google Meet and Zoom, which relies on constant, high-quality sound.

Some top options include the QuietComfort® 45 headphones. Their proprietary acoustic technology delivers deep, clear sound in a shockingly light and comfortable package. And features like Aware Mode – which naturally brings in some of the sounds of the surrounding environment – allow wearers to redirect their attention without taking off their headsets.

The QuietComfort® earbuds employ the same incredible noise-cancelling technology as well as high-fidelity audio and StayHear™ Max eartips for extra comfort. And the Headphones 700 feature adjustable EQ, unrivaled voice pickup, and integration with voice services like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Whether working solo, hopping on a call, or staying on-call for colleagues, Bose’s best-in-class noise-cancelling earbuds and headphones are ideal to support a productive return to the office.

There was once a time when wearing headphones in the workplace may have seemed unprofessional or standoffish, but as office culture – and the world around it – has rapidly changed, so have the tools that enable employees’ best work. The best tech is the key to motivating your team and delivering strong results, and that tech now includes noise-cancelling headphones.
