    Paul sounds like he's in a box. I think he'd do better with a Blu mic. We use those extensively for our home broadcasters and they have different modes to address most scenarios. I notice Brad is already using one.

    I got myself one of the new USB-C Microsoft Modern Speakerphone devices the other day, mainly because the rattling sound the tinny speakers in my laptop makes is annoying (me) in Teams meetings.

    It's just a speaker and microphone that sits on the desk out of view. It's also very portable.

    The sound is very good, and the device seems very solid and good quality.

    Working from home, where no one knows I have it, Teams conversations are clearer. People I talk to a lot are saying it sounds better, unprompted. Then again, my laptop, like most laptops, didn't have great audio. Perhaps laptops are simply too thin do do it right.

    Interesting about the messaging bit. WhatsApp is cross platform and widely used in the UK. All phones, desktop app and webapp. Problem solved.

    If you are happy for non headphone calls, the Jabra 410/510 is awesome.
