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. The Certified for Microsoft Teams headsets seamlessly integrate with Teams and offer headset control functionality. They also meet the Microsoft Teams Open Office certification levels.
If you're working from home and need to block out the sound of family members moving around you, the technology in Blackwire 8225 headsets have you covered. The noise-canceling microphone with Acoustic Fence technology puts you in a quiet office, even if you are not. Hybrid Active Noise Canceling (ANC) makes it easy to escape the noise around you: there are three ANC settings (toggle between Off, Mid, and High levels on the side of the call controller), that help you create the best quiet zone.
This is a comfortable headset. The padded headband has soft leatherette ear cushions, with adjustable headband and 180-degree pivoting speakers to easily fit all users. We also like the status indicators (busylights) in the ear speakers that alert others when you are on a call. These two LED indicators keep you distraction free.
These headsets 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
