Jabra Speak speakerphones are the perfect size for small conference rooms, huddle rooms, and individual use. They are easy to use, with Plug and Play technology and excellent sound quality. The Speak 510 devices are among the most popular from the series, because they offer wireless connection via Bluetooth.
We are frequently asked "what is the difference between the Speak 510 and Speak 510+?" The only difference between the 2 versions of the 510 is the Link 370 USB Dongle, which is included with the Speak 510+ version.
That's it! That's the only difference. But it’s a big one, because that USB Dongle gives you up to 100 feet of range with the Speak 510+ from your computer, allowing you to position the speakerphone wherever you need to, completely wirelessly. We definitely recommend the Speak 510+ over the Speak 510 for this very reason. If you need to connect to computer at all, the “+” is the way to go and well worth the extra $30.
The discreet plug and play USB dongle ensures quality of sound and an extended wireless range up to 100 feet. When the Link 370 is connected to your Jabra speakerphone, the HD Voice lets you experience high-definition, crystal-clear sound and enjoy life-like conversations. In addition, HiFi Audio Streaming with A2DP allows you to stream music in amazing HiFi quality.

The Jabra Speak 510 and 510+ units are easy to manage and update with the FREE Jabra Direct software: Jabra Direct.
There are four different options of Speak 510 devices: either Speak 510 or Speak 510+, and either UC or Microsoft Certified Versions. If you are using a Microsoft platform (Lync, Skype for Business, or Teams) we recommend that you purchase the MS version of the Speak you prefer.
The Plantronics Blackwire headset series are all-in-one USB headsets from Poly, and have been a standard for office workers who need a high quality headset with great sound. The series continues to transform with the latest technology available, as well as premium design and connection features.
The new company name, Poly, is the result of Plantronics and Polycom joining together. Poly, which means “many,” leverages the legendary audio and video expertise of Plantronics and Polycom and its breadth of smart endpoints that connect across and between unified communications platforms to reduce the distractions, complexity, and distance in the modern workspace.
All of these Blackwire headsets offer a two-year warranty, connect via USB or USB-C (learn about the latest USB connection type, here); and most come with carrying cases for storage and protection during travel. All of the Plantronics certified for Skype for Business headsets work with Microsoft Teams, including headset control functionality available to Skype for Business.
The newest headsets to the series have a unique boomless mic design: the first of its kind in the corded headset market. As collaboration increasingly takes place via video, there was demand for a professional corded headset with a boomless mic. It is extremely important to wear the headset with the "R" ear speaker on your right ear, because the microphones are built into the front of the headset's speakers, creating a four-microphone array for best voice pick-up.
The 7225 headsets offer Active Noise Canceling that can be activated when needed. When you need to quickly listen in to your surroundings, push the red Open Mic button found on the bottom of the left ear speaker; and then press it again to return to your quiet headset. Another unique feature in the new Blackwire 7225 headsets: rather than an in-line call controller, all audio and media controls are on the ear speakers.
Blackwire 5200 headsets also offer excellent sound - both inbound and outbound - with a flexible mic boom featuring noise-cancelling, so background noises aren't transmitted to your callers. Listening to music is an enjoyable experience with this headset, too.The duo headsets offer a comfortable "sling" metal headband; both mono and duo have large ear cushions made of ultra soft leatherette wrapped around memory foam. This headset is a dream for all-day wearing comfort! All of the variants connect to both USB/USB-C and 3.5mm, which unplugs from the in-line call controller.
Blackwire 3200 headsets are the entry into the Blackwire world. These are great headsets, and there is some variety within the 3200 line: all of these headsets are available in either USB or USB-C variants; the Blackwire 3215 and 3225 have the additional 3.5mm connection for mobile phone and tablet use. The foam ear cushions on the 3210 and 3220 are lightweight and breathable. The ear cushions for the 3215 and 3225 are leatherette and fold flat for placement in the included carry case.
No matter which Blackwire headset you choose, we recommend that you download the free Plantronics Hub software. There are downloads for both Windows and Mac operating systems. Hub software allows you to customize settings and get visible status of your Plantronics audio device on your desktop. It also pushes out firmware updates to keep your headset always up-to-date.

Avcomm Solutions staffers have been celebrating college and high school graduations with their family members this month, and we have heard some great commencement speeches. Typical advice shared by graduation speakers is that the end of formal education doesn't have to be the end of learning. This is especially true today, as there are many opportunities to learn — from home — at our fingertips. And, many are available at no cost!
Learn a foreign language with the Duolingo app; iTunes U offers everything from Introduction to Psychology to Woodworking; Coursera is used by Fortune 500 companies for professional development; and YouTube videos are another way to learn everything from how to tie a bowtie to playing guitar and checking tire air pressure.
One of our employees likes Master Class, which offers online classes from experts. She especially likes the cooking and wine classes taught by Gordon Ramsey. Other employees take dance classes with their spouse; host foreign exchange students to learn about other cultures; and take golf lessons at a nearby municipal golf course.
The benefits of learning new languages, skills, sports and ideas have the potential for new relationships, world travels, career advancement, and more. Your brain also benefits from learning, because the neurons are stimulated and form more neural pathways, which slows aging.
With all of these advantages, and opportunities to learn, our advice is that today is the day to learn a new skill and invest in yourself. Now, go out there and make us proud!
