Headsets for both desk phone and computer (and cell phone)
With the increasing number of software that communicates over the internet (VoIP softphones), such as Skype, Microsoft Lync, Skype for Business, etc, this is one of our most common questions we get from our customers. “do you have a headset that will work both with a desk phone and a computer?” The answer is YES! Here are few of our top rated dual connectivity headsets, both in the corded and wireless models.
The Jabra Link 860 is an amplifier that can be attach and toggled back and forth between a PC and a desktop telephone. It comes with a USB cable that connects to a computer as wells an office phone. You can switch between and computer and deskphone by a flick of a switch on the Jabra Link 860, it’s that simple.

Plantronics Savi 8220 Wireless Headset Binaural Savi 8200 series (deskphone, PC, cell phone) <= My pick
The Plantronics Savi 8220 is the newest of the multi-connectivity wireless headset. It’s also the most advanced headset Plantronics has ever engineered. It has the ANC “active noise canceling” in the speakers to block out the noise in the office, so you can focus. No other Plantronics desk phone headset has this feature until now. Like the other wireless headsets, is has the noise canceling microphone to block out the noise for your caller on the other end. In addition, when fully charged, the battery can last up to 13 hours on a single call (50 hours of standby time). You can travel up to 590 ft in the perfect environment. When we tested, we go about 150ft in our office since we have many walls, machines and cubicles. It has soft leather ear pads so it feels very comfortable for all day wear. Solid construction, it doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall apart for many years to come. Like the other Plantronics Savi models, you an easily switch between your desk phone, computer and mobile phone with a press of the button on the base. Of course also listen to stereo music when you’re not on the phone. This headset is by far my favorite of all the ones I tested. You can go HERE to ORDER
Plantronics Savi W740 Wireless Headset 700 Series (deskphone, PC, cell phone)
The Plantronics Savi W740 wireless headset is my favorite and the one I use in my office. It’s a “triple connectivity” wireless headset. It not only attach to your desk phone, it can also attaches to your computer (via USB cable) and smartphone, like a Apple iPhone (via Bluetooth). So when you’re in the office, you can use the same wireless headset for your deskphone, computer or cell phone – without having to switch headsets. The only catch is that you cannot take the wireless headset with you and use it in your car. The wireless headset itself is not Bluetooth. the Bluetooth signal comes from the base of the Savi W740, not the headset. Also, you must leave your cell phone near the base for the wireless headset to work (Bluetooth only has a 30ft range). It can be customized for different ring tones so when your phone (deskphone, softphone, or cell phone) rings, so when the phone rings, you know which one is ringing when you’re away from your desk. In addition, you can also record your telephone calls with the Plantronics Savi series wireless headset. See our Blog HERE about wireless headset recording.

Working in a office with several employees can be a difficult task. The constant office chatter makes it difficult when you’re on the phone. Fortunately there are plenty of headphones that will help filter out majority of the background noise. I’m almost certain that majority of people have heard the phrase “noise canceling.” Generally speaking, that is referring to the microphones ability to filter out noise for the user on the other end of the phone. Below you will find a small list of headsets are great at filtering out that background noise. As a bonus I will include a couple of headphones that filter out noise through the microphone and the noise through the earphones! Some of the headsets will have passive/active noise canceling earphones.
Let us start with the noise canceling microphone only category. Note, all of these headsets come with a superb noise canceling microphone. All corded headsets require a bottom cable or an amplifier to work with your device.
Like I said above, this has an excellent noise canceling microphone. But in addition, you have high def audio, plush leatherette ear cushions, and very sturdy construction. This CORDED binaural (covers both ears) headphone has a little passive noise canceling (think of resting earphones over your ears without any sound playing). The microphone is a bit unique, it sits just below the base of the earphone to avoid any possible interference with your peripheral vision. You can also extend the microphone to the perfect distance to your mouth. With all of that said, if you’re in a very loud environment that has close quarters or no partitions, you’ll probably want to opt for something with active noise canceling. Great headphone for mild office chatter. Requires a bottom cable or amplifier, comes with a manufacturers 2 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This is the newest wireless headphone on the market. Similar to the above, if you’re in a mild to moderately noisy environment, this dual eared wireless headset will be an awesome choice. This monster comes out of the box with a massive 490ft wireless range, 13 hours of talk time, and advanced noise canceling microphone. The awesome part of this headphone is, you can even plug it into your computer at the same time as your desk phone, allowing you to switch between calls on your landline and soft phone applications. This headphone is certified for Microsoft Skype for Business so chat away, or just enjoy some YouTube or stream some Spotify. It runs on DECT technology like many other wireless headphones, but this uses DECT Security Step C & using FIPS approved algorithms for key generation, payload encryption and authentication. It is the most secure headset on the market. Like I said this headphone is among the line of the newest and best technology by Jabra. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy.
The newest technology got even better. This binaural wireless headset boasts all the same features of the Engage 65 plus more. You will still have the incredible range, talk time, and advanced noise canceling microphone, etc. The key differences between this headset and the Engage 65 is the ability to connect to even more devices and a touch screen base. The Engage 75 can connect 5 devices at the same time. Yes you read that right. 5 devices. You can connect 2 USB, 2 Bluetooth, and 1 desk phone. Now, I don’t know why you would need to connect this many devices, but I guess it’s good to know that you can. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy.
Noise canceling earphones and microphone:
For extremely loud environments here we have a dual ear circumaural corded headset. These headphones were designed to be used in very loud environments, from aircraft carriers to the New York Stock Exchange. They have 22dB of noise reduction through the ear cups and 20dB through the microphone. These headphones are exceedingly durable. The cables are resistant to UV, and oils and solvents, and will stand up to extreme temperatures while remaining to be flexible. If you’re in a call center environment or have really loud background noise, this is the best corded noise canceling headset. This is a corded headset so you will need a bottom cable or an amplifier. Comes with a manufacturers 2 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This wireless Bluetooth headset would be great for a loud environment. It has active noise canceling in the ear phones as well as a noise canceling microphone. Not only is it very comfortable, but you can also pair it with another Bluetooth enabled device. Say for instance your cell phone rings, you could answer the call with the same headphone. It has soft plush ear cushions so you can wear them all day long. Generally speaking, these headsets were designed to be used with a computer and cell phone. However, we’re seeing that many people want to have a wireless noise canceling (through the earphones) headphone to be used with desk phones. Luckily there is a solution to that. You can pair this headphone with a PC/USB switch that will enable you to use this headset with a corded desk phone. You have about 12 hours of talk time and 150 ft wireless range from the Bluetooth dongle. There are many other subtle features you can read about here. Comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.

This Plantronics Savi 8220 headset is the newest wireless noise canceling headset by Plantronics. If you’re familiar with the Savi 700 series, the 8200 series is an improvement on them.

No longer will you have to choose between a rugged corded headset or a Bluetooth only headset. This is the best of both worlds including 13 hours of talk time, and 590ft line of sight wireless range. This has an excellent noise canceling microphone, and is very comfortable. The Plantronics Savi 700 series was always a great headset, now it just got even better.

The telephone is the essential part of a call center, for the same reason it can become a lousy environment. To provide the best attention over the phone the agents require the best headset that can provide exceptional sound and allow them to keep mobility as well. We review and recommend some headsets available in the market.
The first one on the list is the Jabra Pro 920 Duo, with a nice wireless range up to 350ft , covering both ears help to isolate the outside noise and have a better sound quality, compatible with just about all the desk phones on the market makes this one one of the best options for a light, easy to use and affordable headset. Thanks to the Dect wireless built in, you can get a minimum of 8 hours on battery life with just one single charge. Offering Jabra’s Digital Signal Processing, which means you get the best sound quality by removing the background noise and echo. The advantage of just 80g of weight makes this a real good headset for daily wear without compromising comfort and performance. A nice feature is that you can pair up to 4 headsets for conference call, which makes it an excellent and affordable option for conference calls or training purposes.
Coming up next we have the Plantronics CS520, as same as the previous one, this headset cover both ears, so the user can be focus without interruptions from outside noises. With a wireless range of up to 350ft and a talk time of minimum 9 hours , makes it one of the preferred choices for Call Centers. As with most of the wireless headsets, can be paired to up to 3 headsets for conference calls or training purposes. having a weight of barely 96g. makes it a really good contender on the headset match. The cradle/docking station has one of the best looking designs that I have seen, a glossy black finish at the front reminds me of the jet black from the iPhone 7/7plus. Really nice and elegant touch from the CS520. Easy to set up and to charge the headset.
Personally, would like to recommend the bundle of the CS520+HL10, which will give the same features as the CS520, but it will allow the user to answer and end calls from the distance. Which allows a better productivity and freedom at call centers or offices. The HL10 fits most of the phone systems in the market, but if you would like to know if yours is compatible, feel free to call us.
For those crowded Call Centers with the same headset, Plantronics give us the CS520-XD, due to the different frequency it works, allowing all the users to have the benefits of being wireless without compromising audio quality. The CS520-XD was designed to address wireless density issues, so that more wireless headsets can be used in the same space while maintaining clear conversations. Highly recommended to mix with the CS520 in a proportion of 50/50 in order to get the best sound quality without any interference. If you would like to know more about high density and if you need a set up like that feel free to call us.
Last but not least we have what we can call the “Jewel of the Crown” we have the Savi 8220, this headset offers an exceptional wireless range of up to 590ft, active noise canceling and the availability to connect to desk phone, computer and cell phone via Bluetooth.Under the philosophy of “One headset for all your devices” , I love the seamless connectivity with my tablet, cell phone and phone at work Personally, my favorite in the list. Thanks to the Plantronics Hub software, you can even change the language of the headset , change its settings and it is compatible with Windows and Mac.
Probably you had heard the phrase “Noise Canceling”, but do we actually know what it is, where it is located, or what is the main purpose of it? We will discuss this on this blog.
Noise-cancelling headphones are headphones that reduce unwanted ambient noises using an active noise control. Noise cancellation makes it possible to listen to audio content without raising the volume on the headset.
Active noise control (like in the Jabra Evolve 75 ), also known as sound field cancellation, reduces the sound of unwanted noises by electro acoustical means. For the main reason these kind of headsets will require external power to create the Noise Canceling , among those will be the Plantronics Voyager 8200 and the Plantronics Voyager Focus.
Passive noise reduction on the other hand doesn’t require power, costs far less than the “active” noise canceling headsets but offers slightly less cancellation. Passive ambient noise reduction means insulating the ear from the external noise with bigger rugged ear cups. A good example of this headsets would be the Plantronics SHR2083-01 which is mainly used in Wall Street by the stock market brokers.
A noise-canceling microphone is a microphone that is designed to filter outside noises from the desired sound, which is especially useful in noisy environments. Most of the headsets from Jabra and Plantronics offer this quality. Best examples on corded headsets with this feature would be the Jabra Biz 2400 II Mono and the Plantronics HW710 , while on wirless headsets would be Jabra Pro 920 Mono and Plantronics CS540 .

This Jabra Biz 2400 is 40% lighter than other headsets in this category and provides ultra-noise cancellation to make sure the only thing the receiver hears is your voice. The 360-degree swiveling boom mic can be adjusted in any position you want whereas the larger leatherette ear cushions make sure that you don’t feel uncomfortable even after hours of use. These are ideal for any work environment and call centers.
So as to know the upper most figures of wireless headsets, which can be connected in the office, there are quite a few factors that you would have to consider:
- Number of headset users for wireless connections that work simultaneously.
- Design & layout of the office.
- The kind of technology for wireless headset to be applied (DECT 6.0-1.9Ghz, 900mhz or Bluetooth-2.4Ghz).
DECT 6.0, 900mhz & Bluetooth (2.4ghz) all use entirely diverse working frequencies plus none cause interference to one another.
In theory you can have up to 210 wireless headsets without serious problems. Problems like loss in sound quality, loss in wireless distance, etc.
There happen to be a lot of interconnected things that come into play while influencing wireless headsets numbers deployment in general so to get to a conclusive number is highly difficult.
For this reason, we advise a survey of the place that interests customers to place in excess of 200 wireless headsets. You could get in touch with our Headsetplus.com engineers at 877-999-3838 if you would require in excess of 200 headsets functional in one office.
When it comes to wireless headsets you want a few things, nice clear audio, enough battery to make it through the day, and something that you can wear all day without discomfort. Jabra kept these things in mind when they created the Jabra Pro 900 series (Pro 920, 925, 930, 935). These headsets are nothing extraordinary but for their reasonable price tag, they’re hard to beat.
There are several lines of the great Jabra Pro 900 series which could make it confusing. Below you will find some of the key features they have in common and how they differ.
Jabra Pro 920 Mono Wireless Headset System (connects to 1 desk phone)
This is a great entry level headset for the money. You get about 7-8 hours talk time and around 325ft DECT wireless range.

Jabra Pro 935 MS Dual Connectivity Bluetooth USB Headset (Dual connectivity to computer and Bluetooth enabled device)

You can think of them as the new and improved version of the 9400 series. Well that’s basically what they are. Below you will read about them in more detail. All headsets below are Microsoft Skype for Business Open Office Compatible
The Engage 65 mono would be my goto headset. I say goto because I’m currently using a the Engage 65 Stereo. My office is not loud enough to warrant the dual earphones, but it is nice to listen to music in stereo. The Engage 65 mono is a monster. You have 13 hours talk time, 490ft wireless range, and a fantastic noise canceling microphone. This headset is the replacement for the Pro 9450. You can connect it to 2 devices, deskphone and computer. If you’re in a large office, you don’t have to worry about interference. You can have up to 120 of these headsets without fear of interference. This is the most secure wireless headset on the market.

Another useful feature is the built in busy light. Co-workers/customers no longer have to guess whether or not you’re on the phone. You wear it as a headband and it covers 1 ear. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This wireless headset is very similar to the Mono but has some slight differences. The good: You can purchase additional wearing styles for this headset. It comes with an earhook, (headband and neckband sold separately.) It is much lighter. The bad: talk time is decreased to 9 hours, the wireless range drops to around 330ft, and the battery is NOT replaceable. When your battery eventually dies, you will have to purchase a new headset. Still a great headset. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
Virtually the same as the 65 Mono, weighs a little more 83g, stereo (2 earphones). With this you will get up to 490ft or roaming range, and 13 hours of talk time. The touch screen base is also a cool feature. You can control or adjust setting right on the base! The real benefit with this headset is the passive noise canceling that is provided by the dual ears. Like I said earlier, this is the headset that I use, and I love it. Sometimes it gets hot in the office, so I would prefer a single ear. At times when everyone is screaming on the phone, I’m glad I have stereo. The stereo headphones are superb for listening to music (listening to Jimi Hendrix right now).

This headset is the absolute top of the line. Like the Engage 65, you have the exemplary 490ft range and 13 hours of talk time. This headset comes with head band, neck band, and you can connect it to 5 devices at one time. You read that correctly, connect this headset with 1 desk phone, 2 USB devices, and 2 Bluetooth devices. I can’t imagine many people needing to connect to that many devices simultaneously, but more is better than less. It also has a convenient touch screen base.

The headset has the same connectivity as the above 2 USB devices, 2 Bluetooth device and 1 desk phone. Unlike the Engage 65 convertible, this headset includes all three wearing styles (headband, ear hoods, neck band). Again the downside to this headset is the loss of wireless range, and decreased talk time. You still have 9 hours of talk time and 330ft of range, which is about the industry standard. Like the 65 Convertible this headset does not have an exchangeable battery. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
Includes all of the same features as the Engage 75 Mono but comes with 2 earphones. Rock out with this bomb stereo headset up to 490ft. Are you worried about how long you talk straight with this headset? Don’t be. You have an incredible 13 hours of talk time. This headset is better if you’re in a slightly louder environment. More often than not, my coworkers are talking very loud. We are within close proximity to one another, having stereo helps drown out the noise. Don’t fret about the headset being uncomfortable or cumbersome. I wear the Engage 65 stereo for 8-9 hours straight no problem. Do yourself a solid and just buy this headset. It is far better than anything on the market. I prefer the Engage series way over Plantronics. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
All of these headsets are truly remarkable. If you choose any of the above, I guarantee you will love them. All of the Engage series are remote answer capable. Remote answering will enable you to answer and end phone calls away from your desk. You can be down the hall or in another room and still be able to answer your calls. Feel free to reach out to me for compatibility.
