Altec Lansing AHS212 Headset

Altec Lansing AHS212 HeadsetClassic monaural headset with microphone

The Altec Lansing AHS212 is lightweight and comes with just one earcup so that your other ear can pay attention to your surroundings. This model features a convenient inline volume changer. The quality of the microphone is satisfactory.

This headset isn’t very durable in terms of construction. The earphone comes off from time to time (but can be easily reattached). Sound isn’t optimal, as you probably already suspected from its very low price.


For under $15, you really can’t expect the Altec Lansing AHS212 Monaural Headset to be the best you’ve ever tried. Its construction isn’t exceptional, and neither is sound quality. Some consumers have also reported that their microphones were dead upon arrival. It’s designed with only one earcup so you can also pay attention to what’s going on around you.

Classic monaural headset with microphone

The AHS212 is a classic monaural headset. It is comfortable, lightweight and can be worn over the head. The monaural design leaves one ear for sound reception and the other ear free to absorb sound from the surrounding environment. The sound in the headset can be controlled with the inline volume controller. The quality 32mm neodymium earphones deliver decent sound. The noise canceling microphone eliminates background noise. Gold-plated 3.5mm connectors come standard.
