Does anyone else have problems using headphones (eg noise cancelling over ear headphones) for conference calls? I feel like I can’t hear myself in them and just sound weird.

Yes, you need headphones optimized for calls. Check out the Bose NC700.


I had the old version and those were very bad for calls. The new ones have something similar to transparency mode.

What you need is "open back" over ear headphones that allow for ambient sound


AirPods Pro solve this issue, but not sure if you can wear Apple products at google

There’s an option to listen to your mic in sound settings.

Me too!
