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.

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. Better noise cancellation, higher quality audio and voice, and much tougher. You cannot go wrong with this headset. This headset requires a bottom cable / amplifier.

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. Using those tools you can update to the latest firmware on your Plantronics 8220 or your Engage 65 headset. If have any questions on any of these headsets feel free to give a call to us at headsetplus.com 877-999-3838, we will be more than happy to answer your questions.
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
We live in a scary world, . Everyone seems to be listening in on our personal conversations. It could be some juicy gossip, Game of Throne spoilers, or it could be government officials talking about who knows what. How many times have you been on the phone on hold and you forget that there is someone or something on the other end potentially listening to you? It may all seem like harmless listening. But what if you just committed a crime and you’re chatting with a accomplice? Often times, there is another person on the line listening/recording for “quality assurance.” Fear not, there are adapters that will prevent that nosy person/machine on the line from hearing your personal conversations. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in the bathroom and wish I had a PTT connected to my phone. Sure, you could just press mute and turn it on and off constantly, but it’s a pain. If you want maximum security, get yourself a push to talk adapter. How do they work you ask? They are known as push to talk adapters. If you’re familiar with a walkie talkie / 2 way radio, they work in a similar way. Audio from the telephone or device will be uninterrupted, however, if you wish to speak, you will need to PUSH to TALK. I will show a couple of adapters below. Pay attention because I’m only going to say this once.
Here we have a great PTT adapter. This adapter will work with any Plantronics H series headset. It’s as simple as plugging this into your deskphone/setup, and connecting the other end to the headset. Most government and military departments use something similar to this. This is a very secure setup, your customer will only hear what you want them to hear and nothing else. Depending on your phone/setup, you will need a specific adapter or connector to make these compatible with your setup. Make sure that you do your due diligence before you purchase this item. Due to the manufactures policy, this is a special order headset. It’s not returnable, non-refundable. If it’s defective, Plantronics will replace it for you under warranty.
If you have questions about compatibility or would like to purchase this item, click here.
If you don’t feel like wearing a headset but still want to use PTT, here is another type of PTT you can use. Please note that this handset is phone specific. Again, same concept. You push the talk button to be heard. The person on the other end of the call will only hear what YOU want them to hear, nothing more. Extremely secure, most used by government and military. Or if you’re a very secretive person (perhaps a spy?) This is an option for you. This is not the only PTT handset available, so call us for compatibility. Click here to buy now. Due to the manufactures policy, this is a special order item. All Sales are FINAL. It’s not returnable, not refundable under any circumstance. If it’s defective, Plantronics will replace it for you under warranty.
Last but not least, here is a PTT most commonly used for dispatchers. These plug into dispatch radio system and you have a WIRELESS PTT device! You again will need aPlantronics H series headset. to go with this, but it is a very cool device. It comes with a wireless PTT remote that you push to talk. These devices are most common with police and EMS. Due to the manufactures policy, this is a special order item. Be careful before you order this. All Sales are FINAL. It’s not returnable, not refundable under any circumstance. If it’s defective, Plantronics will replace it for you under warranty. Give us a call before you purchase this, you will need a nice headset to use with this PTT. Click here to buy now.
Last but not least. The SHS is a pretty cool device. Like the SSP 1051, this is a corded push to talk adapter that will connect to any Plantronics H series headset. Here’s the kicker, instead of plugging into a deskphone, this will connect to a USB device. Which leads me to ask, how secure can it be if it’s online communication? I’ll tell you what, from the headset through the SHS 2355 you will have an extremely secure conversation. What happens when that conversation hits the internet is out of my control. Either way, this is a really cool push to talk device.
There are several PTT adapters that connect to different devices and headsets. If you’re worried about people spying on your conversation, you’re probably not that interesting anyway.
If you’re confused about compatibility, give us a call or email. You can ask for Than Nose.

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:

Headsets for Police Radio Dispatch, 911 Emergency or Air traffic controller
Plantronics Headsets for air traffic control, police radio dispatch, or
a 911 emergency/ambulance communication services. If you do not know if your console is a 6-wire (most common) or a 4-wire you will need to check with your console technician.
For a 6-wire console (most common):
If you wish to go wireless you can use the 6-wire Plantronics CA12CD-S (see below)
For a 4-wire console (less common):
If you wish to go wireless you can use Plantronics CS540 with a PJ-327 plug prong adapter which is part number 18709-01. With the 4-wire wireless option you will need to use either the foot pedal on the console or the button on the console prior to transferring to the belt pack of the headset
Headsets: Designed specially for the dispatch operators in mind. Check out the Plantronics H31CD headset and the Plantronics H81N-CD TriStar Noise-canceling Headset (see below)
All of these headsets listed below have one primary goal. Their goal is to achieve clear communication for the user and the customer. None of these headsets will provide you with ultimate audio experience you might find with pure audio headphones that cost $300 and up. These headsets provide you with excellent communication, and as a bonus decent to great audio quality for listening to music or watching movies. If you travel a lot, make a lot of phone calls, and enjoy listening to music, below are some headsets that might work for you. They all include a Bluetooth dongle so you can connect it to a computer as well as a cellphone / tablet.
The Evolve 65 Stereo is a decent Bluetooth headset that will connect to a USB device and also a cellphone/tablet via Bluetooth. It has a nice noise canceling microphone and decent audio quality. You will get around 100 ft range (using dongle) more like 30 feet using cellphone and around 10 hours talk time. This headset wouldn’t be my first pick because the Evolve 75 is a much nicer headset for not much more money. Overall still a good headset. Click here to buy.
Out of all of the headsets listed here, this would be my pick. Why you ask? Because I own a pair of these and I love them. Great noise canceling microphone, active noise canceling earphones, and Hi-Fi stereo quality. You can’t compare any of these headsets to audiophile type music headsets. But again, that is not what they are for. Their primary goal is clear communication with customers and they achieve this goal and go beyond. When you have free time in between calls, The Evolve 75 is great headset to just relax and jam out to music. You will have around 100ft wireless range (dongle) and 15 hours of battery life. This will connect to a computer via USB and a Bluetooth device. Click here to buy now.
Here we have an interesting headset. They’re not truly wireless earbuds like the air pods, but they are better than them anyway. They have omni directional noise canceling microphones that will help pick up your voice clearly. They have active noise canceling ear buds, and good audio quality, but most importantly, call clarity. They are certified for Microsoft Skype for Business Open Office. Great for the on the go user that needs to be mobile and not be burdened with a bigger headset. Also if you’re afraid of losing wireless ear buds (I am), get these. Click here to buy now.
The Voyager Focus UC is Plantronic’s version of the Jabra Evolve 75. They have the active noise canceling earphones, great noise canceling mic, and around 12 hours of listening time. This headset would be my second choice to the Evolve 75. Again, the audio quality is very good, but not comparable to some high end audio only headphones. If you enjoy watching movies, listening to music, and still need to make professional calls, this is another great headset to have. This headset is suprisingly light for what it accomplishes.

Here we have more unusual type of headset. This is a circumaural type headset (goes over and surrounds the ears.) They have very nice audio quality, and 4 omni-directional noise canceling microphones. The odd part about this headset is that it doesn’t have a boom microphone like most over the head headsets have. Don’t fret, your customers will be able to hear you just fine. You have a tremendous 24 hours listening time with these! If you’re constantly in very loud environments and still want to hear your audio, buy these. Click here to buy now.
This headset is similar to the Jabra Evolve 65 Stereo but better. You have a nice noise canceling microphone and good audio quality. But like the Evolve 65, you don’t have any active noise canceling through the earphones. You have the same 100ft range as the others above, 15 hours music listening time, and they are very comfortable. This headset is certified for Microsoft Skype for Business Open Office. I would spend a little bit more money to get the Evolve 75 or the Voyager Focus. Still overall a good headset though.

Again, all of these headsets above are really great for phone calls, video chat, and conferences. They all have nice noise canceling microphones that you will not find on other audio headset or air pods. Out of all of these headsets, I like the Jabra Evolve 75 the best. The sound quality on top of the excellent call quality make them well worth the money. Considering how well these headsets do their job, their prices are well worth the money.
