    My take on not sounding scoldy about it is in the way you frame it as a benefit for *them* and make it a bit silly.

    Let them know that it’s kind of like making sure that they untuck their skirt from their panties (or any other silly metaphor) —- it’s like walking out of the bathroom with toilet paper on the sole of your shoe, or walking around with your fly down — you are there to take care of them and make sure they sound as amazing as they can!

    As a note, when it comes to headphones with microphones, it’s all about mic technique even with those. I know for sure EarPods from Apple, those ones that used to come with an iphone are pretty decent for audio.

    The issue comes when they move their face around, the microphone is way too far from their face and hair, clothing or jewelry get in the way.

    Bottom line, give as much insight into making sure that it’s about them “looking good” vs you are a tyrant
