Every once in a while a manufacturer does something very smart. Well today that clever cookie is Plantronics and what they did with their top of the line Blackwire C710 BT USB corded headset. They made a computer headset that’s USB – so what. The twist is they then gave it Bluetooth connectivity too!
Don’t misunderstand me, they didn’t exactly split the atom but they came at this issue from a very different, and clever, angle. Headsets that work with both mobile phones and USB normally are extensions of their mobile phone headset models. For example the the Plantronics Voyager Legend UC headset is a modified version of their incredibly popular Voyager Legend but with a micro USB adaptor.
What these mobile headset Frankenstein’s miss is comfort, sound properties and size. When you design a mobile phone headset size and weight are paramount. The trade off for these is battery life, speaker size and sometimes comfort too. The benefit f computer headsets is they don’t have to compromise on anything. But pure computer USB headsets were missing Bluetooth until the Plantronics Blackwire C710 BT USB computer headset and it’s band of merry brothers came along.
So what you get is an ultra comfortable computer headset with the best sound properties for any VoIP or PC application. Plus you can use it for your mobile phone too. Now the Blackwire C710 can be used outside of the office or house by simply disconnecting the cable but you still have to take the whole thing with you (cable included). If you want it for external mobile phone use then choose one of the mobile phone style models I mentioned before.
This little gem is designed for the serious PC/ VoIP user that also wants a bit of mobile action thrown in as well. And with the emerging proliferation of UC (unified Communications) applications in daily office life we can see where this product will secure a very strong and commanding position. Plus, it also comes in 4 different variants in the Plantronics Blackwire 700 Series to suit every need just click on the links below for more info:
