Quote from: fosca on September 27, 2023, 11:30:53 AMI have over-the-ear headphones with a microphone (in-ear headphones always start to hurt after a short time--I must have small external auditory canals or something), both because it helps me hear what people are saying better (I'm in a loud environment) and because I hate the sound of other people using the computer/laptop microphone (it's often soft and echo-y and a bit muffled), so I don't want to inflict the same on others. I can wear over-the-ear headphones for hours without pain, and I do it often. Plus, I live in a tiny apartment with always-open windows and I figure my neighbors don't need to hear my meetings, particularly when they are at some god-awful time of night (I work remotely and I'm six time zones away from my "home base").

Quote from: paddington_bear on September 28, 2023, 05:48:54 PMA question just occurred to me....If I'm teaching asynchronously, do I need headphones at all? I'm only going to be recording lectures. If I meet with students over Zoom, the mic and speakers on my computer seem to already be good enough.
