How to improve the quality of remote meetings

  1. Headphones
  2. Decent light
  3. External mic
  4. External webcam
  5. Optimal client for your preferred meeting system

Headphones

  • Comfort is the highest priority: I use over-ear headphones for this reason. Here are some ratings of over-ear headphones. You don’t need expensive ones, though.
  • The in-line mic or attached mic is nice, but you don’t need it if your laptop has a mic.
  • Bluetooth is helpful when you are on long calls so you can stand up, move around a bit, and still hear what is going on.
