Question

Is it obligatory for a female to cover her head during the 'Azan' when she is at home?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
It is not compulsory for a woman to cover her head when she is listening to the Azan. Some good ancestors became humble and shed tears while listening to the Azan. When asked about it they said: "When I hear Azan, I remember the people's standing in front of Allah (The Day Judgement)".
Allah knows best.
