Are you in an IP (Voip) call center using softphones where you need train a new staff using USB headsets?
A Windows computer can only recognize one USB sound device at a time. So the computer cannot activate two USB headset at the same time. You can connect two USB headsets, but only one can be turned on.
There are no solution to utilize two USB headsets on a computer as training headsets. The reason is because your computer OS (Windows or Mac) does not recognize more than one USB headset at one time. This is a limitation of the computer OS.
With Quick Disconnect (QD), both Plantronics and Jabra (GN Netcom) have a training cable you can attached two headsets to one computer for training purpose
Jabra (GN Netcom) Setup:
Use a Jabra Link 265 USB training cable with two Jabra QD Headsets. We recommend this pre-configured Jabra Computer USB Training Bundle, 2x Jabra Biz 1500 Headset :
Jabra also offer a better quality training bundle that includes 2 x Jabra Biz 2300 to cover both ears with only a slight increase in price. Having both ears cover helps the employee concentrate better so the background noise and disturbance doesn’t bother him during the phone call.

Working from home is becoming more and more common in the work place. The employee needs to communicate from home just as easily as he does from the office. The basic equipment needed is a telephone and a headset. There are several solutions depending on whether or not the company provides you with a telephone or not. With today’s VoiP (voice over internet) technology, the company will often provide the same phone (i.e. Polycom, Avaya, Cisco) as they have in the office. If that’s the case, simply purchase the same wireless office headsets or corded office headset as would for the office. If you don’t have an office phone. Here are the best telephone/headset solutions for your home phone line:
Plantronics CT14 DECT 6.0 1.9Ghz Cordless Headset Telephone: One of the most popular home office cordless phone + headset we sell. Simply plug the CT14 base in the phone jack (like you do with any home home) and it becomes a cordless phone with a headset attached. You can dial and answer from the keypad that attaches to your belt or pants. Walk and talk around the house hands-free up to 300ft away. With the Plantronics CT14 you can be anywhere in the house (or the yard) and be able to answer any phone call that rings in the house, and of course make phone calls with the keypad. The headset is convertible, so t
hat means it can be worn either over-the-head or over-the-ear. The phone (keypad) has all the basic cordless phone functions such as caller ID, call waiting, phone book, etc. Making it very popular among home office users.
Plantronics T110 Practica Headset Telephone: The Plantronics T110 is the corded version of the headset + telephone. It comes complete with a keypad and headset all in one. It’s has a simple keypad and headset without many bells and whistles like the others model already mentioned here. It does come with basic headset features like noise canceling microphone (in case if you have music on in the background for example). The keypad has basic functions such as re-dial, flash and mute. At the price of only $99, it’s one of the most affordable models for the home office worker.
ATT TL7810 Wireless Headset (USB/landline/cordless phone): The ATT TL7810 works like the CT14, except it dos not have a keypad for dialing. You plug the TL7810 into the wall like a telephone and it works like a telephone, except you can’t make out going phone calls from it. The biggest advantage of this headset is that there are no wires attached, it’s a total wireless headset/telephone. It comes with 3 different wearing styles (over-the-head, over-the-ear, and behind-the-neck). It works like a telephone; when you’re wearing it walking around the house, when a phone call comes in, it will beep in the headset telling you the phone is ringing, you simply hit the button to answer the call. If you need to make a phone call, you will need to pick up a another phone in the house to dial, then hang up once connection is made. when the headset is fully charged, it’s good for 12 hours of talk time. This wireless headset can also connect to any desk phone as well as a computer using the USB port. All these added features making the ATT TL7810 the most versatile headset on the market.
This is in my opinion is setup the best way to go for a home office. but it’s the most expensive. You need 2 parts: Plantronics CS540 and Plantronics TR11 analog adapter (The Plantronics TR11 adapter turns the Plantronics CS540 wireless headset into a “cordless phone without the keybad”. You can walk around the house with the CS540 wireless headset (no cords attached) and answer calls anywhere 300 feet away. The headset will beep when a call comes in, you answer by pushing a button on the side of the CS540. To dial out, simply pick up another phone in the house to call out. The Plantronics CS540 is only weights 1 oz. Super light weight.

Headphones are becoming more and more popular everyday for any business office. When you think of business headphones, the first thing that usually comes to mind are Bluetooth/corded headphones for cell phones (depending on when you were born). If you were like me, you didn’t know there are literally hundreds of different types of headphones available for desk phones. Whether you’re using a $500+ multi line or a $50 single line desk phone, there are countless options for you. If you work in a job or business that requires significant talk time on a phone, I suggest you do your research. Not only will a headphone free your hands up, but you’ll reduce damage to your posture and your neck. Here you will find some suggestions on which headphone will be best suited for your needs. Lets start off with a great entry level wireless headphone.
The Jabra Pro 920: This headphone is an industry standard. It has up to 350ft wireless range, 8 hours of talk time, and noise cancelling microphone. You don’t have to worry about others listening in on your conversation because it comes equipped with security encryption. It runs on DECT 6.0 technology, similar to a cordless phone that you would use at home. The battery will charge rapidly (full charge 3 hours). You have the option to convert this headphone into another wearing style if you choose to get the ear hook or neck band. This is a very versatile lightweight unit that is also remote answering capable, see below. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Check for compatibility.
The Jabra Pro 920 + GN1000 Wireless Headphone Bundle Package : Adds remote answering capability to the Jabra Pro 920. Don’t you hate it when you’re phone is across the room and you hear it ring? You have to run to the other side potentially injuring yourself or your coworkers. With the addition of the GN1000 RHL, you no longer have to fear leaving your desk or missing a call. This bundle package includes the remote handset lifter. The lifter will sit underneath your handset, when your phone rings, you will hear a beep in your headphone. To answer or end a phone call, you simply press power button on the headphone to activate the lifter. If you want to utilize the full potential of your wireless headphone, purchase this. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Check for compatibility.
Jabra Biz 2400 II QD Mono Ultra-Noise Canceling UNC 3-in-1: If you work at a job that doesn’t require stepping away from your desk, you can get away with a corded headphone. This is one of top of the line headphones on the market. Not only is this headphone superbly comfortable, but to ensure that, it comes with 3 different wearing styles. It comes with a traditional style headband, ear hook, and neck band. Not only is this unit elegantly crafted, and comfortable (larger soft leatherette ear cushions and increased headband cushion), but it’s also comes with a Kevlar reinforced cable. These headphones are built to last. This unit has exceptional HD quality sound and one of the best noise canceling mic on the market. Even with all of these features, it still weighs 40% lighter than similar headphones. Keep in mind, all headphones require a cable or an amplifier to work with your desk phone. Check for compatibility, comes with a manufacturer’s 3 year warranty.
Jabra Biz 2400 II Duo Ultra-Noise Canceling UNC QD Headphone: If you work in a louder environment, the background noise can be cumbersome for both you and your customer. You don’t want to have to keep asking “what, can you repeat that?” Similarly, you want your customer to be able to hear you clearly. If you work in close quarters, or have loud coworkers, I’d recommend using a binaural (2 ears) headphone. The earphones don’t have active noise cancelling like some others, but it definitely helps block out some of that unwanted noise. The 2400 II Duo and Mono 3 in 1 offer the best in class noise cancelling microphone on the market. This is as close as you can get to a complete noise cancelling microphone. Sometimes customers will ask if there is a noise cancelling microphone that will block out 100% of background noise. The answer is no. If it blocked 100%, you wouldn’t be heard, but it will block up to 60-70% of the background noise. Like the above, it has great HD sound, 360˚ rotating microphone, and Kevlar reinforced cables. Check for compatibility, comes with a manufacturer’s 3 year warranty.
Switching back to wireless headphones,
Jabra Pro 9470 Wireless Headphone System 9400 series: << the winnerThis headphones is the one headphone to rule them all. It has up to 450ft wireless range, 10 hours of talk time, and comes with 3 different wearing styles. Why is this headphone so good you ask? The 9470 allows you to connect your desk phone, computer, and cell phone together through 1 headphone. Majority of people today use some other form of communication i.e Skype, Goto Meeting, Facetime, etc. This headphone unifies all 3 of your devices and allows you to communicate through 1 headphone. If you were to take a call on your desk phone, then suddenly had to hang up and take a call on your iPhone/Android, you don’t have to switch headphones. Same thing goes with your computer. Have a long conference call you need to take notes on? This device allows you to record audio on your PC. You will have a great noise cancelling microphone and wideband audio allowing for crystal clear communication. If you’re a business professional that spends most of the day on the phone, the Pro 9470 is truly the one. Also compatible with remote answering.

There are so many certified Skype for business (formerlly MS Lync) compatible headsets by Jabra, Plantronics, VXi. But which one is the best? We stock over 70 different model headsets that are certified for Skype for Business. Price range any where from $50 to $400 depending on your budget. Obviously it’s not fair to compare a $400 to a $50 headset, the $400 headset will obviously be a better headset. It’s the old saying goes – “you get what you paid for”.
