Use Headset (if available)

If available, we recommend you use headphones to avoid disturbing colleagues
and to minimize distractions during the training. Headsets for PCs (and laptops)
typically use standard audio connection  (3.5 mm stereo jack plug which is
compatible with most MP3 players and iPhones) so you can probably use
your personal headphones or earbuds if you prefer.  You can plug into the jack
plug in the front of your PC or laptop (look for Green plug or headset icon).
