Call centers are notoriously loud (fact). It’s makes it difficult to hear and be heard in such a crowded environment. Even if there are only a few people in the same room, talking over one another can be a serious problem when dealing with customers. Let’s take a look at some of the best rated and wallet friendly headsets. Keep in mind that compatibility will vary by phone.
At such a modest price, this is the perfect entry level headset. It is very light, has an adjustable headband/mic, provides great audio, and comes standard with a noise canceling microphone.

|Jabra Biz 2300 QD Duo Binaural Noise Canceling Headset: (available in mono) staff favorite|
This headset is a big step up from the above Biz 1500 model. You’ll have all the same standard features, i.e noise canceling microphone, wideband audio, PeakStop technology, but even more goodies with this one. The Biz 2300 is a beefier version of the above with a Kevlar reinforced cord and an unbreakable 360 degree spinning boom microphone. You won’t sacrifice any comfort for toughness.

The audio will be more crisp and the noise canceling microphone with reduce more noise with the HW720. In addition to all of the features, it’s just an overall good looking headset.
In conclusion, I would recommend the Jabra Biz 2300. It’s a huge step up in quality than the Biz 1500 and HW520, and connecting and disconnecting of the cords makes the Kevlar reinforced cables and important factor. Voice/sound quality difference between the HW720 and the Biz 2300 is negligible. If you’re looking for form over function, I’d recommend the HW720 but we ultimately want something that’s high quality and durable. Do yourself a favor and ask about the Jabra Biz 2300.
Note: I’ve excluded the top of the line Jabra Biz 2400 II Duo Noise Canceling QD Headset due to the cost of the unit for a call center. Of course, if you’re in a very high end call center, you definitely want to look into it. After all, the Jabra Biz 2400 II is the best corded headset on the market.

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

If you have any of the following Avaya Phone models 1408, 1416, 2410, 2420, 4606, 4610, 4610SW, 4612, 4620, 4620SW, 4621, 4621SW, 4622SW, 4624, 4625SW, 4630, 4630SW, 5410, 5420, 5610, 5620, 5621, 5625, 6416D+M, 6424D+M, QE4610, 9404, 9406, 9408, 9504, 9508, 4406D+, 4412D+, 4424D+, 4424LD+. This guide will help you pick out which headset is right for you.
The first thing to figure out is whether or not you prefer having a wired headset to your desk phone, or a wireless headset. For wired options, the headset will plug directly into the desk phones’ ‘headset jack.’ To use the headset, you simply need to press the ‘headset button’ on the phone, then the headset will be activated and you can speak and listen through your corded headset.
Next you should consider your budget. Corded headsets are the cheapest option, ranging from $85 to $185+. Wireless headsets start in the $160 range, and rise from there depending on your wireless needs (wireless options below).
Lastly and just as important, consider your working environment and how you would prefer to wear your headset. If it is a noisier work area, having a Binaural (2 ears covered) headset would be needed. Most headsets these days already have a noise canceling microphone, and every headset (except for over the ear headsets) can come with 2 headphones. Headsets can also come with different wearing styles, the over the ear option I just mentioned, over the head via headband, or even behind the head with a neckband. Now I’ll get into some headset information to help you choose which is right for you:

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.

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.

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. A new addition to the Active Noise canceling family in a wired headset is the Plantronics Blackwire 7225.
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 .
