Alternative headset styles: Choices that go beyond the headband

December 21st, 2020  •   0 Comments

Do headband-style headsets give you headaches? Or, do you prefer an on-ear or over-the-ear headset? We are fortunate to partner with brands that offer a multitude of wearing styles sure to meet the unique preferences of many.


Some of our customers like the over the ear wearing style which can be worn on either ear, and have cushions or ear gels that keep the headset secure to the ear. Customers like the versatility and lightweight design, as well as the ease of use. Connection styles vary, either corded or wireless, for truly the most optimized experience for each user.

Here are some choices for corded headsets:

Plantronics StarSet H31 CD has a small ear tip that is placed directly into the ear canal, and the headset rests lightly behind the ear. The voice tube microphone will be sufficient for those working in a closed-door space by themselves; any background noise will be clearly conveyed to the person on the other end of the line. The headset is shipped with 6 different sized pliable ear tips.


Plantronics EncorePro 530 headset has an ear hook that can be bent to conform to the ear, and can be worn on either the right or left side. The foam ear cushion rests lightly, and securely, on the ear. Or, if you prefer to have several wearing styles for the same headset, the EncorePro 540 is a 3-in-1 headset that comes with these wearing styles: ear hook, neckband and headband. It is extremely easy to switch wearing styles, thanks to the design of the snap-on clip.



Here are some choices for wireless headsets:

The EPOS | Sennheiser Impact SDW 5016 is a convertible headset with triple connection to mobile and desk phone, and computer.

A colleague who uses this headset at her desk has had a positive experience with the SDW 5016, with the headset instantly connecting to the device when needed. A note of caution: she reports that because she has "tiny ear holes" she does not experience a snug fit in her ear (even with the smallest ear tip that is included in the box).


Poly Savi 8240 UC is a great convertible option if you'd like a wireless headset that has a single connection to a computer. The ear hook wearing style has an ear tip and optional ear loop to secure it to your ear. A headband and neck band are included in the box, too. To further customize the headset, the included Fit Kit card has 4 gel ear tips in varying sizes; 3 different sizes of ear loops; and a fabric piece to slip onto the ear loop for comfort. On a full charge, you get up to seven hours of talk time. If you need extended talk time, the Savi 8245 UC includes an extra battery for unlimited talk time. The Savi 8245 UC comes with 2 batteries; the second battery is always charging in the headset base.

We have many other options that may suit your style better; call our Headset Experts at 1-866-998-9991 or Chat us now for personalized recommendations.

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.
