When you’re dealing with voice conferencing, ensuring that everything that’s said is clear and understandable to everyone on the call is vital. The best way to do this is to ditch the traditional telephone handset and invest in a conference calling headset. The headset you choose will need to fit your individual needs, but Powwownow have a few favourites that we recommend to our customers.
Plantronics TriStar H81 Headset
This is an old favourite that has gone through a number of different iterations over the years. It’s very popular with contact centre workers due to its excellent acoustics, background noise reduction and feedback cancelling features. Great if you’re telephone conferencing with a participant who can’t find the mute button!
Jabra 9350E Wireless Headset
If you hate being constrained by wires, this headset could be a winner for you. The high quality sound and consistent volume level means you’ll never struggle to hear your conference call participants, while its future proof design ensures that it will continue to work when you upgrade your telephone system. The noise cancelling microphone ensures that your voice is always clear and crisp.
Sennheiser BW 900 Bluetooth Headset
This ‘business class’ headset is exceedingly trendy looking as well as very clever – it will work with your landline, PDA, VoIP-enabled computer and any type of mobile phone (it works great with our conference call mobile app too! The BW 900 has has incredible sound quality and it’s great if you teleconference on the move a lot and want to go mobile!
Plantronics Audio 995 Wireless Stereo Headset
If you access your Powwownow conference calls via skype, this headset could be ideal for you. Unlike many computer headsets, the Audio 995 comes with a dongle that allows you to go wireless. The noise cancelling microphone acts as a “fast mic mute” that mutes your microphone when the boom is raised. It is also incredibly comfortable and you won’t mind wearing it all day.
