A headset is headphones combined with a microphone or one headphone with a microphone. Headsets provide the equivalent functionality of a telephone handset but with hands-free operation.
Headsets typically have only one speaker driver, but may also have a speaker for each ear. They have many uses including in call centers and other telephone-intensive jobs and for anybody wishing to have both hands free during a telephone conversation.
