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.

Polycom VVX series phones (VVX101, VVX201 VVX300, VVX310, VVX400, VVX410, VVX 150, VVX 250, VVX 350, VVX 450, VVX500, VVX600, VVX1500) are very confusing when it comes to finding compatible headsets. Different models have different headset options and built in ports, so may headsets are available on the Polycom headset page. sometimes people read it as Polycom WX.
Polycom VVX 101, VVX 201, VVX 300/301, VVX 310/311, VVX 400/401, VVX 410/411: These are the simplest of all the Polycom VVX models. There is only 1 x RJ9 Headset Jack, so the choices are simple. Both Plantronics and Jabra, you can use their standard QD headset + Polycom RJ9 adapter cable. Look at our Polycom headset page for all the compatible headsets. With Plantronics, there are only certain models that are Polycom compatible. Others Plantronics models it cause a “buzzing” sound in the headset. I recommend the pre-bundle Polycom models like the Plantronics HW510-POLY or the Plantronics HW710-POLY Headset . If you like wireless, check out Plantronics CS510-Polycom. If you’re in a noisy office, I highly recommend the Plantronics Saiv 8220 – Polycom. They all have been tested to work with all Polycom VVX phones.
Polycom VVX 250, VVX 350, VVX 401, VVX 411, VVX 450: These are the newest Polycom VVX phones. Equipped with 1 x RJ9 jack and 1 x USB port. So you can use either the RJ9 port and USB port. I recommend headsets like Plantronics HW540-Poly or Plantronics HW510-Poly. If you want wireless, look at the Plantronics CS540-Polycom . All these headset have been tested and certified to work with Polycom VVX phones. If you’re on a tight budget, you can also use something like the Jabra Biz 1500 mono USB headset for only $89. For a noisy, busy office, look at the Jabra Evolve 75 USB wireless headset with active noise canceling (ANC) technology to block out unwanted noise in the office and it has the best sound quality of all the headsets we carry.
Polycom VVX 500/501: This Polycom phone is equipped with 1 x RJ9 jack and 2 x USB ports. So you can use either the RJ9 headsets mentioned above or the Plantronics HW540-POLY or a USB headset like Plantronics C710 USB Headset . Looking for something more affordable, look at the the Plantronics Blackwire C3215. Polycom VVX 500 does not support Bluetooth directly. So if you want to use a Bluetooth wireless headset, you will need Plantronics Voyager Legend UC Bluetooth Headset B235 , which includes a Bluetooth USB dongle that provide the Bluetooth wireless function.
Polycom VVX 600/601, VVX 1500: These Polycom phones has 1 x RJ9 headset jack, 2 x USB ports and it’s also Bluetooth enabled. So you can use all the headsets from the above models PLUS you can use any Bluetooth enable headset. I would recommend staying with the higher end Bluetooth headsets like the Jabra EVOLVE 65 UC Mono USB Bluetooth Headset or the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC Bluetooth Wireless. The only draw back with using Bluetooth is the roaming range, typically only 30ft. A few up to 100-300ft. If you want wireless and need greater range, I would use the Plantronics CS540 Wireless Headset with DECT 6.0 technology that provides 350ft wireless range.
For all the VVX phones, EHS (Electronic Hook Switch) remote answer cable is also available for EHS compatible wireless headsets. see our dedicated Polycom Headset page for more details or simply call one of our headset specialists at 877-999-3838.
