As you are aware, the venerable 3.5 mm headphone jack so commonly found on cell phones, tablets and laptops is getting axed in a slow but steady pace. This transition started with the iPhone killing the 3.5 mm for the Lightening , HTC with their newest phones, Google with its Pixel2 and 2XL , among others in order to have a more compact and slim design.
The 3.5 mm transfers stereo analog audio out of the socket, which means that all the “magic” of nice sound will be credited to the same phone, on the other hand USB-C transmits the digital audio data over the same headsets instead.
With this being said, here are the best USB-C headphones you can get on the market today:
The Engage 50 Stereo headphone is one of my favorites thanks to its 3 microphone noise canceling, Intelligent Volume Control, slim design and built in busy lights. So easy to adjust over the head, and Skype for Business Certified make this one of the easiest headsets to use on the market. Click HERE to know more about it.
The Jabra Engage 50 Mono, is as good as the big brother the Engage 50 Stereo, mainly for not so noisy working environment, built in busy light, adjustable boom arm with the nice 3 microphone noise canceling system making it one of the best, easy to use and adjustable with an extraordinary lightweight of 61g. You can learn more of the Jabra Engage 50 Mono HERE.
Plantronics enters the USB-C Market with the Blackwire 5220 USB-C, a nice stereo headset with USB-C plug in, plus the 3.5 mm jack, meaning you can use it on almost any device that you can imagine. Leatherette, fold able ear cushions add a really nice value to he 5220 USB-C when you need to take it with you. Superb voice alerts that can be personally customized by user. Order yours HERE.
The Blackwire 5210 USB-C Mono comes with the USB-C and the 3.5mm that allows you to work on any variety of mobile phones. One-touch call answer/end, volume +/- and mute adds a nice touch to the amazing sound quality of this headset. The Plantronics Dynamic Mute Alert is an amazing feature that warns you in case you try to talk on the microphone but you are muted. More information in HERE.
The latest addition to the USB-C corded headsets is the Plantronics Blackwire 7225 USB-C , this is the first USB-C corded headset with Active Noise Canceling, which I recommend specially in really loud environment and if you want to keep focus without distractions. This headset has not 1 but 4 built-in microphones into the ear cups, which makes it a perfect companion for your smart phone or tablet on the go. Has a built-in busy light into the USB-C port that allows you to show when are you in a call or available, the volume control, mute, play and stop controls are located in the right side of the headset.

Headsets nowadays do way more than just using them for your desk phone. We have headphones that can now be connected to 5 devices at the SAME TIME. I’m talking desk phone + computer + cellphone. Pretty crazy stuff now. Anyway, here is a small list of some very nice headsets that will enable you to listen to music while you work.
The Plantronics Savi 8220 is the newest wireless headset on the market. This is the upgraded version of the already fabulous Plantronics Savi 700 series. The main difference between the old and new is the active noise canceling in the headset. That’s right, on top of all the same features of the old Savi, you will get more range, talk time, and active noise canceling for those loud environments. Because of the triple connectivity, you can enjoy streaming music to your headset when you’re not on a call. This is an excellent choice for a desk phone computer combo. 590ft line of sight range, 13 hours of talk time you can’t go wrong. Comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, click here to buy now.
The Voyager 8200 is one of the newest wireless headsets on the market. Even though this headset wasn’t designed for use with desk phones, we can still make it work. An interesting feature of this headset is the noticeable lack of a boom microphone. But don’t worry, your customers will still be able to hear you with the dual-paired (4 total) omni-directional microphones. This powerful headset has active noise canceling earphones and a great noise canceling microphones. You will get about 100ft of wireless range from a deskphone or computer. the 8200 has about 24hours of music/movie streaming. To use this headset with a desk phone, you will need an adapter. This will enable you to use this with your deskphone, computer, and cell phone. Pretty awesome huh? Comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, click here to buy now.
If you’re looking to save a little money but still be able to stream music to your head phones, this would be a decent choice. You will have triple connectivity, desk phone, computer, cell phone, but music quality won’t be as nice as the new Savi or the Voyager 8200. Another thing this headset lacks is the active noise canceling. This is still a great headset, but I’d recommend paying a little more and getting the Savi 8220. Comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, click here to buy now.
This is my favorite headset. I currently use the Jabra Engage 65 Stereo. Think of the Engage 75 as the big brother of the 65. This headset is absolutely beastly. You can connect this monster to 5 devices at the same time. 1 desk phone, 2 USB devices, and 2 Bluetooth devices. A bit overkill if you ask me, but hey, it’s better to have more than less. As I type this, I’m listening to some heavy metal, on my Engage series headset. Considering these headsets were not designed for the enjoyment of music, these are damn good quality speakers. This headset has the best wireless range, talk time, and just overall quality out of all the others that I’ve used before. If you want to save some money, you can always go for the Engage 65 Stereo. The 65 will only connect to your desk phone and your USB device, but that’s where we stream music from right?. Comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, click here to buy now.
The headsets that connect to desk phones are remote answer capable. There are tons of solutions out there for every phone. If you’re interested in purchasing one of these items and have questions, feel free to call or email me.
The abbreviation for Voice over Internet Protocol is VOIP. In simple terms, receiving help from already in place information communications networks to take forward phone calls. Those using a home PC it means making use of Internet for the purpose of telephone calls that allow the calls to be made at much cheaper rates.
