For clear conversations from anywhere you work, Jabra has introduced the new Evolve2 65 Bluetooth headset with three microphones, two of which are located in the boom arm, with one in the right ear cup. There’s 37 hours of battery life, and 3 times better wireless range than the existing 65 headset for the Evolve series.
The Evolve2 65 comes with the Link 380, the Jabra adapter in USB-C and USB-A. Some variants include a charging stand to keep the headset docked when it's not in use. The Microsoft Teams certified options in the range have their own dedicated Microsoft Teams button for instant connections to collaborative meetings. The obvious LED light on these headsets can also signal different things, like missing a meeting or call.
If your platform is something other than Microsoft Teams, Evolve2 65 works with all leading Unified Communications (UC) platforms, for seamless collaboration.
True comfort, luxury

We are moving to a work-from-home situation across the world. For those who haven't set up a home office yet, here are our suggestions for a productive space to work during this modern-day pandemic.
The best option for home work is to close yourself off in a dedicated office space, or a quiet out-of-the-way bedroom. If you have younger children who need you near, you may be working in the middle of the family at the kitchen table. In either situation, a headset with a noise-canceling microphone is a must! We offer headsets with both noise-canceling and ultra noise-canceling microphones, for extreme noise cancellation.
We recommend an Active Noise Canceling headset for complete concentration, and with a variety of wearing styles and connection types, there's guaranteed to be a headset that works for you. The Jabra Evolve 80, pictured above, is a USB and 3.5mm headset with large ear cushions that completely surround the ear; and with ANC, and Busylights on the ear cups, it's a great choice for productive working and clear calls.
Other work at home tips:
•Don't sit in the same place all day. Get up and move! Wireless headsets let you walk and talk. •Take a lunch break ... but don't extend it to all-day grazing. No need to gain weight in your comfies while you enjoy unlimited snacks from the pantry. •Speaking of comfies, you may find that you accomplish more when you're not wearing pajamas or sweats. That's something you'll have to test for yourself. •Take breaks ... but not too many. Turn off notifications for any non-essential tasks (such as social media) so you can focus on what needs to be done.
•When it's time to take a break, walk around outside for a few minutes. Get a change of scenery and clear your thoughts.
•Take advantage of collaboration tools and communicate with your co-workers regularly. A quick conversation can go a long way to building relationship, and don't forget to have team meetings to keep everyone connected and informed.
Take heart! This quarantine cannot last forever, and may provide you the time necessary for personal reflection and family connection that we typically don't get in our usual daily lives. And, once we get the "all-clear" to return to our work spaces, we go with the knowledge that we can conquer anything! (And now have a GREAT headset to work with!)

Plantronics has announced the Savi 710, 720, 730, 740 and 745 wireless headsets are being withdrawn from production and will only be available until supplies last.
The recommended replacements are the new Plantronics Savi 8200 DECT wireless headsets. Similar to the Savi 700s, the Savi 8200s offer triple connection to desk phone, PC and mobile phone. Some great features of the Savi 8200 series are the large leatherette ear cushions, comfort padded headband, and the Savi 8220 has Active Noise Canceling. Savi 8200 headsets offer up to 13 hours of talk time on a single charge. You can roam up to 590 feet (environment-dependent) from your PC for maximum freedom. And, convenient voice prompts notify you of mute status, roaming range limits and more.
The new Yamaha YVC-330 USB conference phone with innovative SoundCap technology converts the audio of open spaces into a clear and natural signal that is almost as good as being in a quiet meeting room. Essentially, it's like meeting inside a "bubble," in an open office environment.
Three technologies together become SoundCap:
•Far Field Noise Reduction (FFNR): reduces & removes distracting noises that come from sound sources outside of the meeting area (their graphic showed a “bubble” over a conference table and they call it the “bubble effect” because FFNR reduces every sound that comes from outside the meeting bubble)
•Self-silence: This is basically Auto-Mute. It utilizes Human Voice Activity Detection (HVAD) technology to mute mics automatically when meeting participants aren’t speaking
•Self-volume balancer: Automatically adjusts speaker volume properly to fit surrounding ambient noise levels
SoundCap can be turned off if you would like to daisy chain 2 Yamaha YVC-330s together (with cables), or if you would like to use it in a larger space. With SoundCap on, recommended coverage area is up to 3.3 feet; with SoundCap off, it is suitable for 4.9 feet, up to 9.8 feet. MSRP for the YVC-330 is $349.00.
