So to resume my run of posts on this blog, I’ve planned to share one of our favorite content pieces this week. I was tentative to add it to this website as I really didn’t wish to offend the initial writer, but I trust he/she is happy that I enjoyed reading their work and planned to share it with my readers.
Plantronics is a hardware company based in Santa Cruz, California, and specializes in light-weight headsets. After the huge success of its Bluetooth headsets, it has entered the market of office headsets with its Savi Office System (both wired and wireless). Here is a brief introduction to and review of the Plantronics office headsets and their effectiveness.
Plantronics Office Headset: Technical Advantage
The Plantronics Savi Office system consists of a base unit and a couple of headsets. The whole system is packed in a black and silver casing, which gives it a distinct professional appearance. The base unit is around 3.9 inches wide, 3.5 inches deep, 3.7 inches tall. The headsets include noise-canceling and DECT 6.0 technology to give calls a crisp and clear reception. The ear gel helps the ear piece feel much more comfortable, although some users may find this type of headset difficult to get used to if it is their first time using ear gel headsets.
Savi Office has a massive roaming range of up to 350 feet, add to this the ability of automatic power adjustment based on the distance from the base station and you have sufficient talk time between charges. Its average battery life is 9 hours for the convertible headset and 6 hours for the over the ear headset. For digital encryption, it uses the 64 bit DSP.
Superior Features of Plantronics Office Headsets
With the Plantronics Savi Office, ease of work is guaranteed. To demonstrate this, it comes with a lever system, which when activated, will pick the receiver up for you and place it in your palm. It is a complete office solution. It allows the dual use of VOIP and a normal telephone from the same device. It allows you to make a VOIP call via Skype, MSN or any other Softphone software. You can also respond to a landline call just by pressing a button on the base station. What’s more, both VOIP and landline calls can be bridged together for a conference call.
Field tests on actual business conference showed the following results:
1)The caller heard the calls loud and clear, with no background noise. The voice quality sounded natural.
2)The receiver commented that the voice quality sounded exceptional, considering the fact that headsets were used.
