ANC (Active Noise Canceling) headsets from Poly keep the focus on work and distractions at bay

July 1st, 2021  •   0 Comments

Tune out of a distracting environment, and tune into your work, with these headsets from Poly. Active Noise Canceling technology has crossed over to the business professional world, due to demand from professionals who require a space to concentrate, as well as headsets with noise-canceling microphones for premium call quality. The Active Noise Canceling (ANC) helps block out distracting sounds, creating a “quiet zone” to enhance productivity, no matter the environment.

According to Poly, a study out of the University of California shows that it takes an employee 23 minutes to recover from a distraction and get back to the task at hand, and that a majority of employees get distracted at least once a day.

Sennheiser premium wireless headsets: An overview

January 20th, 2020  •   0 Comments

Wireless headsets by Sennheiser offer iconic design, all-day comfort and legendary Sennheiser sound. They allow you to move around freely and stay connected so that you can keep working — wherever you are. And you can count on clear sound even in the busiest work environment, both in and out of the office. The 2-year warranty from Sennheiser is twice as long as competitor warranties on wireless headsets, giving you peace of mind.

You have options with Sennheiser wireless headsets. A few of the choices: mono or duo ear; noise-cancelling or ultra noise-cancelling microphones; a variety of wearing styles (over the head, behind the neck and over the ear); and various connection methods. If you're not sure exactly what you need, we're here to help! A few simple questions will narrow the choices and you will be using your wireless headset in no time flat!

Connect to: Desk Phone, PC, Mobile Phone and Tablet

SDW 5016, SDW 5036 and SDW 5066 offer the convenience of triple connectivity. This is a new capability from Sennheiser, which is now offered thanks to the SDW 5000 series, a truly future-proof, flexible, and collaborative experience. High density wideband mode ensures high quality sound that accomodates high density work environments. Busylights on the headsets, fast charging (50% battery in 30 minutes), and up to 590 feet range (dependent upon environment) are just some of the reasons to take a look at the SDW 5000 series. They are certified for Microsoft, and optimized for major UC platforms. Pioneering voice detection technology and the two-microphone system give exceptional sound and voice clarity. Manage calls from the base station or the headset. Enhanced security features keep conversations confidential: 128 bit encryption and Sennheiser Protected Pairing ensures that sensitive data stays secure. The entire SDW 5000 series is DECT-security certified.

SDW 5016 is the convertible model. In busy office environments, where you may be wearing your headset all day long, the flexibility of changing wearing style can enhance long-term comfort. The FlexFit wearing style system offers the choice between a headband, ear hook or neckband solution for the perfect customized fit. All three wearing styles are included in the box.

SDW 5036 and SDW 5066 are the mono and duo versions. The leatherette ear cushions adjust to the wearer; both side to side and up and down. The headband has a comfortable rubber piece at the top. Note: the SDW base station works with all SDW 5000 headsets.

To learn more about the SDW 5000 series, Sennheiser has provided additional resources on YouTube, with this SDW 5000 Series Playlist. These helpful videos include how to assemble and wear the various wearing styles; how to make and transfer calls, and and how to connect difference devices. Watch this video for a helpful overview of the SDW 5000 series:



Connect to: Desk Phone and PC

There are several great choices in this business office category: SD Pro 1 ML, SD Pro 2 ML, SD Office ML, SDW 5015, SDW 5035, and SDW 5065.

The SDW 5015 (convertible), SDW 5035 (mono) and SDW 5065 (duo) from the new SDW 5000 series connect to both desk phones and PCs. If, after having one of these headsets for a while, you decide that you want enhanced connectivity to mobile, a Sennheiser USB dongle can be purchased.

SD Pro 1 ML is a single-ear headset. Switch between desk phone and PC with a simple touch on the base station. The extended wireless range allows for conversation in a radius up to 180 feet, and within line of sight, up to 590 feet away from the base.

SD Pro 2 ML headset is the duo ear model. The supple leatherette ear cushions and adjustable headband give this headset a premium fit and feel, and the flexible mic boom with ultra noise-cancelling can be adjusted for best proximity to the mouth for excellent sound quality.

SD Office ML has a FlexFit wearing style system with 3 wearing choices: headband, and earhook; a neckband is available for additional purchase. The fixed mic boom is noise-cancelling and filters out background noise.

The SD models let you answer and end calls, mute, and adjust the volume directly on these headsets. The headsets offer up to 8 hours talk time in wideband sound mode and 12 hours in narrowband mode. Proprietary technology includes HD Voice Clarity for natural wideband sound, and ActiveGard, hearing protection against acoustic shock. The headsets are interchangeable on the same base, to conference up to 4 headsets to the same base station!

Connect to: Smartphone and Tablet

The Presence Grey Business is a traditional Bluetooth headset, with incredible noise-cancelling. Callers won't know you're in the middle of a busy conference hall. We tested the excellent noise-cancelling of the Presence in a busy conference expo hall!

MB Pro 1 and MB Pro 2 offer the stability of a headband, and a single Bluetooth connection to smartphones and tablets. A comfortable headband and soft leatherette ear cushions have a professional polish, and accomplish all the same tasks as the Presence - just with a different look. The office worker who makes most of their calls on their smartphones may appreciate the MB Pro 1 and MB Pro 2.

The MB (Mobile Business) Pro series is the first to offer Room Experience technology, which reduces listener fatigue by giving all-day headset users the impression they are having a conversation with a person in the same room. This realistic sound provides a more natural and comfortable listening experience with less stress in noisy environments.

Connect to: Smartphone, Tablet and PC

For those who need the Bluetooth connection and a USB connection to PC, there are plenty of choices in this category. The MB Pro 1 UC ML and MB Pro 2 UC ML versions are a traditional headband style. If you prefer the smaller profile of the Presence, the Presence Grey UC is what you need.

To focus on work, and not on distracting background noises, the MB 660 MS has large ear cups with Active Noise Cancelling. By constantly monitoring the background environment for noise, Sennheiser’s NoiseGard hybrid adaptive ANC technology seamlessly adjusts the level of noise reduction in your headset. This unique technology enables you to take control of your sound environment, so you can have a productive, disruption-free workspace. While there is no microphone boom, the MB 660s offer triple digital mics with Advanced Own Voice Detecting, WindSafe and Speak Focus technology for clear conversation. A hard-sided carry case is included for easy travel.

MB 360 UC also has a boomless mic design, with two digital noise-canceling microphones. ANC reduces background noise to increase focus on your work. The MB 360 UC has a unique robust, foldable headband design and soft-sided pouch for storage and travel.

Connect to: PC

Out of the box, the D 10 headsets come with over-the-head and ear hook wearing styles; a behind-the-neck band is available as an additional purchase. These headsets feature a built-in ringer with a choice of three ringtones and adjustable ring volume. Noise-canceling microphones and fast recharging: up to 50% of the battery in 20 minutes, also make these headsets a good choice for a single connection headset. Connect to PC-only with the D 10 USB ML.

Connect to: Desk Phone

The D 10 Phone headset offers the same features as its USB variant, listed above, and connects to desk phones only.

While this may seem overwhelming, with a few basic questions, we are able to narrow down the best Sennheiser wireless headset for the environment and user profile. Give us a call and we can assist you in your decision-making at 1-866-998-9991!

Suggested replacements for the discontinued Jabra Motion series

January 14th, 2020  •   0 Comments

Jabra announced that its Motion and Motion Office Bluetooth headsets have been discontinued. The unique wearing style has gained a loyal following of users — the combination of over and around the ear, along with the ear piece that fits directly in the ear, ensures a secure and comfortable fit.

Connecting to mobile phones, tablets, and PCs, the UC+ models are for mobile professionals working mainly outside of the office. The Motion Office variants offer triple connectivity: mobile, PC, and desk phone for working at your desk.

We have a limited supply of the Motion headsets. Once they're gone, we recommend these Bluetooth headsets as comparable replacements:

Jabra Stealth UC is a small headset with an included USB dongle for connection to PCs, in addition to mobile phones/tablets. The in-ear design is discreet, lightweight, and comfortable enough to wear all day. The Stealth incorporates the breakthrough microPOWER battery technology which allows for a significantly smaller design, longer talk time and a better comfort experience. The Stealth is also available in a Certified for Microsoft version: Stealth MS. MSRP is $158.

Jabra Evolve 65e and Evolve 75e are neckband with earbud styles; they are similar in design and function; however, the 75e offers the additional feature of Active Noise Canceling. The neckband vibrates on incoming phone calls, so you're aware of calls even if the ear buds aren't in your ears. Wear one ear bud to keep an ear on the surrounding environment; wear both for increased concentration. Both of these headsets are available in Microsoft-certified versions: Evolve 65e MS and Evolve 75e MS. MSRP for the Evolve 65e is $210, and $272 for Evolve 75e.


If you prefer the ear bud wearing style, without wires, Jabra Evolve 65t is a great option. It connects to mobile phones, and to computers with the included Link 370 USB dongle. The four-microphone technology ensures clear conversations; get up to five hours' battery on a single charge (15 hours with the included pocket-friendly charging case). There are multiple fitting options to provide a snug in-ear fit that seals out sound, for Passive Noise Cancellation to help you focus. And, it's Voice Assistant enabled (Siri, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa), allowing you to do a variety of tasks hands-free. The Microsoft-certified version can be found here: Evolve 65t MS. MSRP is $346.

To connect any of these headsets to a desk phone, purchase the Jabra Link 950 (MSRP: $157) and Power Supply (MSRP: $16). Triple connectivity will then be achieved with this additional audio switcher box.

Sennheiser SDW 5016, 5015 are Wireless Headsets for the Modern Office

September 18th, 2018  •   0 Comments

Sennheiser office and contact center headsets are high quality products with premium sound, and the new SDW 5000 DECT wireless series is no exception. Sennheiser positions the SDW series as future-proof devices with flexibility for modern office professionals in modern work environments.

Density and advanced security are the hallmarks of the series; a high density wide band mode assures excellent sound is possible in high density environments and the protected pairing, 128-bit authentication and DECT security certification keep conversations confidential.

Choose between the SDW 5015 for desk phone and computer or the SDW 5016 for desk phone, computer, and smartphone/tablet.

Product highlights:

Remarkable noise-canceling mic: In our testing of the SDW 5016 (MSRP: $409.00), we were amazed at the exceptional noise canceling in the microphone. We walked through our noisy warehouse with the normal background sounds of people speaking and a cart being pushed and loaded with products among the shelves, and the noise was not transmitted to the person on the other end of the call. This is because of the headset's two-mic design and cutting edge voice-detection technology. If you work in a noisy office, this is the perfect headset.

Warranty: Sennheiser wireless headsets are covered by a 2-year warranty, double the industry standard.

Videos: Sennheiser has produced a series of short YouTube videos that cover everything from how to assemble and wear the 3 included wearing styles* (headband, neck band, and ear hook), to how to handle, conference, and transfer calls. Another video highlights the different devices (USB and Bluetooth headsets and speakerphones) that can be connected to the SDW 5000 base. These videos are invaluable resources for SDW 5000 series headset wearers, who should bookmark the page for easy access: SDW 5000 Series Playlist.

Free software for headset updates: HeadSetup Pro is the must-have companion software for all of your Sennheiser devices. The FREE software download is compatible with Windows operating systems. Download the software now: HeadSetup Pro.

Sennheiser included a built-in triangular busy light on the mic boom that turns Red when busy; Purple when streaming music; and Blue when the headset is docked on the base. New to the Sennheiser product line is a Busylight designed for the SDW series. Connect it to the Busylight port (marked in blue) at the back of any of the SDW base units, and your presence is immediately indentified as Red (Busy), Green (Available), or Yellow (Away). It can be attached to a computer monitor, or placed on a desk. It is UC and Skype for Business certified.

*SDW 5015 comes with the ear hook and headband only; the neck band is an optional, additional purchase.
