As new companies start up or begin the transition from small to medium or from medium to big size enterprises, the need for more staff and more phone extensions get increased. For the same reason companies are looking to get something affordable, in the case of a new start up company, durable, that at least will survive in the first year while the company builds up its ground, and with good performance, so the new staff can get the best experience at work and the other end customer can get the best customer service experience. In the growing from small to medium and medium to big would be similar cases, but in a bigger amount of units and staff personal.
For same reasons manufacturers are designing new and improved products that can fit all these demands, on of them in this case that we will analyze will be Jabra, with their Jabra Biz 1500 series , which had been designed to be an entry level, affordable, comfortable and long lasting work horse in the headset world. You can always check more specs and order your by clicking here.
The Jabra Biz 1500 series is a light weight headset, one of the lightest in the market for a corded headset with a weight of just 1.9 oz. , with a built in microphone bendable boom arm that has an incredible 270 degree turn, which makes it a practical to adjust with out breaking. As mentioned before, I like to consider this a s a work horse without breaking the bank, affordable, durable and comfortable are some the attributes that shine by themselves in this headset. Thanks to the foam “heat-away” ear cushions by Jabra, makes it an all day comfort headset. If you are not a big fan of the foam ear cushions, Jabra has you covered with leatherette ear cushions which can easily replace the foam ones, giving you an upscale and less rugged feeling. One interesting feature not found in entry level headsets, same as nice noise canceling microphone, which eliminates the background noise for a crystal clear call at both ends of the line.
Another nice feature on the Jabra Biz 1500 series is that you can order it either on mono style, which will be covering one ear or duo style, that is highly recommended if the office environment can be a little loud, mainly because it will be covering both ears of the user. You can order the Jabra 1500 Mono here or if you prefer the duo style covering both ears, you can order the Jabra 1500 Duo here. Order these 2 styles only if you are going to replace your existing Jabra headset from your phone.
If you do not have a current headset and want to get something that will work with your desk phone without breaking your bank, I recommend to take a look at the Jabra Biz 1500 Mono Direct Connect Headset. This headset comes with everything you need out of the box to be plugged into your desk phone and be used, just make sure you select the right channel in the smart cord according to your desk phone and you will be more than set. A lot of call centers order this headset as an affordable and long lasting headset for their staff and they are looking for something comfortable covering just one ear. If prefer to cover both ears in the same situation of currently not having a headset, I strongly recommend to take a look to the Jabra Biz 1500 Duo Direct Connect Headset, same features of its counter part in a single ear however with the advantage of the use of it in louder working environments.

A company cannot afford to underestimate the usefulness, comfort, and increased productivity that a corded or wireless headset will provide. Since not all companies can afford or want to spend the amount it costs for a wireless headset Jabra/Plantronics have created a host of reasonably priced corded headsets.
This is one area in which it can be argued that Plantronics does not have the advantage over Jabra. Jabra continues to develop a line of corded headsets that have challenged Plantronics reign as the number one creator of headsets.
Jabra has recognized a need within the headset community for a headset that is both economically priced and that takes advantage of the increases in technology. In order to fill this void Jabra has developed and recently released the Biz 2300 series headset which comes in a variety of different forms and comes with a multitude of unique features.
Main Jabra Biz 2300 series Features:
- Noise blocking microphone — filters out 60%-70% unwanted background office noise, so the user can focus.

With new technology comes with new updates and new software or applications that involves now from cell phones going thru tablets, laptops , computers and desk phones. For the same reason you need to make sure that your devices such as headsets need to be running the latest firmware. But , what is firmware? Where can I get it? Should I get it? Some of the questions that can fright anyone , and we will analyze this topic today.
Firmware is a software program or set of instructions programmed on a hardware device, and it is really important to have the latest one in your desk phone and on your wireless headset in order to get the best performance on your devices. Not so be confused with software update. The main reason of firmware update is fixed data as part of a hardware device, such hardware include smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktops and now… your desk phone!
New desk phones have now built in wireless connection and nice screens that allow you to even receive voicemails and notifications like you receive them in your cell phone, also known as visual voicemail. And you can even put a screensaver picture on your desk phone just as you can do it on your computer.
The main reason to have the latest firmware on the desk phones is to make sure that the EHS remote answering switch will allow you to answer and end calls. Yealink , Polycom and Cisco are some examples of the most common issue of the Electronic Hook Switch (EHS) not answering or ending calls. In order to verify if you have the latest firmware in your phone, you need to check in the desk phone , depending on the model and brand, some phones will have built in wireless, you will need to go into the navigation menu and then check the version of firmware that is currently in the phone, and compare it against the manufacturer website. If the phone is connected to the internet via WiFi or a network adapter, depending the manufacturer you can update to the latest firmware by just selecting “Update Firmware” in the same navigation menu. Some other models will require a little more steps, but each manufacturer has its own instructions on their websites.
Another reason to have the latest firmware in your desk phone is the integration of soft phone phone systems like RingCentral, or Skype for Business to mention some others. I will recommend to always check your soft phone version with your provider using their software to get the best performance.
The latest firmware update will add new features to your current desk phone like making phone book searches easier by just pressing the first letters of a contact name or even show time and weather on real time if the phone has an advanced screen.
Another reason to have the latest firmware is to fix bugs from previous firmware and increase the security on the same unit to avoid hackers to make unauthorized use of the desk phone, which is an important matter in the Corporate level.
Another feature that can be added by latest firmware is the “Do not disturb” feature or enhance the function in order to work more properly. Amazing feature when you have a meeting and you can not answer the phone or be interrupted by phone calls.
Headsets with Active Noise canceling and UC capable need to be updated on their firmware from time to time in order to have the latest soft phone software patches. If you need help on choosing a right headset for your desk phone , do not hesitate to give us a call , we will be more than happy to help you choose the best headset for your needs.
The best way to have your headset updated is using either the Plantronics Hub or the Jabra Xpress software.

Updating the firmware on headsets is not just for desk phones but it is for USB wireless headsets like the Plantronics 8200 or the Jabra Evolve 75, these headsets require it mainly of the main use with cell phones or tablets, so they can be compatible with the latest virtual assistants like Siri, Alexa or Google. I personally use my Jabra Evolve 75 with my iPhone and my Plantronics headset with my Tablet , mainly to watch movies and webinars. I do enjoy the seamless integration of Siri and Cortana after getting the latest firmware. If have any questions about the Plantronics 8200 or the Jabra Evolve 75 feel free to give George a call in headsetplus.com to the 877-999-3838
