If you are one who is constantly cradling the phone in your neck while attempting to multi-task with good results it is time to consider how a headset will help you maintain the natural curve in your neck, increase your comfort and productivity.

Cradling the phone causes your neck muscles to be stretched and pulled the opposite direction! If this is done for extended periods muscles may become chronically tense and this will create discomfort and limit range of movement.

Whether you are on the go or in the office using a headset will allow for multi-tasking with increased efficiency and relaxed neck and shoulders.

Always check headset compatibility with your phone before you purchase.
