A familiar name in the audio world is now in the professional office headset space.
Bose Professional has introduced the 700 UC wireless headsets in 2 color choices: silver and black. The audio quality that you've come to expect from Bose, along with 11 levels of active noise cancellation, combine to position Bose Professional as a serious contender in the office space.
Audiophiles are most likely familiar with the Bose 700 headphones; this is the same fit, feel and look, with one key difference: the included pre-paired Bose USB Link dongle. The Link dongle is plugged into your PC or Mac, and then connects to the 700 UC headset via Bluetooth to seamlessly integrate with your UC software platforms. The 700 UC are certified for use with Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and more.
The boomless mic design has an adaptive four-microphone system, which isolates your voice from surrounding noise.
With 20 hours of battery life, active equalization technology for premier audio, and Conversation Mode to quickly tune into your environment, the Bose 700 UC headset is a great choice for Bose devotees and others.
Included with the 700 UC headset is a Bose USB Link dongle, audio cable, a USB charging cable and a hard-sided zippered carrying case
for storage and travel.
In less than one minute, you can unpack your Jabra Evolve2 40 headset, plug it into a computer, and you're ready to collaborate. Jabra Evolve2 40 headsets earn an A+ for ease of use, comfort, sound, and Busylight placement.
This is a single-connection corded headset — USB-A or USB-C — a change from the previous Evolve 40 series which offered an additional 3.5mm jack. Also missing: the inline call controller, because all controls have moved to the ear speakers for an elegant way to control volume, answer and end calls, forward music tracks, and more.

•The 360° busylight on both earcups is visible from all angles, acting as a do-not-disturb sign
and protecting your focus.
•Advanced digital chipset.
•Motion sensors detect when headset is not being worn and automatically enables LED
•Powerful 40mm speakers deliver richer sound for a more immersive audio experience.
•3-microphone technology for outstanding call performance.
•The noise-isolating design from the 40mm ear speakers provides for improved focus in noisy surroundings.
•An included soft pouch perfect for storage and protecting the headset on-the-go.

Poly's new white paper brings together thought leadership for what it calls the "Next Normal," which puts people first, to empower them in productive work environments — wherever the physical space may be. According to Poly, "2020 will be the catalyst for hybrid working, offering employees flexibility and choice, driving productivity through collaboration and communication." Basically, creating environments that foster productivity, collaboration, innovation and safety.
The digital transformation ensures consistent work experiences that will react to the crisis and mitigate any harm to the business.
Policies and procedures that support both the business and individual, in a "People First" culture as Poly calls it, will prove to be mutually beneficial.
Interestingly, Poly found that 85% of businesses surveyed believe that greater location flexibility has lead to an increase in productivity.
What can we expect in the "Next Normal?"
Home office spaces built into residences
Increased flexible work across locations
Recruitment over larger demographic (and perhaps geographic) areas
Work from home, meet in the office, bringing everyone together virtually
Smaller company footprints over more dispersed locations
Seamless work flows between home and office
Technology designed for ease of use with personal devices
Necessary business travel only
The only certainty? The core components of any organization: practices, workspace, and culture, will change as we transition into the "next normal." This won't be easy, but evolving to suit the needs of people and organizations will be worth it.
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
Memory foam ear cushions on self-adjusting earcup swivels, with a pioneering new angled design, mold to your ears’ natural contours and cancel up to 48% more noise.
Using biometric measurements of hundreds of heads, Jabra created the perfect ergonomic design, featuring a unique headband shape that optimizes weight distribution for every head shape. The result is a headset that offers all-day comfort, day in and day out.
