When your business happens all over the world, you need an easy way to stay connected and conduct meetings. Chatting through emails works, but it doesn’t always garner the same creative brainstorming as talking aloud. Microsoft Lync, now called Skype for Business, is a way to have face-to-face meetings with your clients and coworkers no matter where you are. When you’re using a video chat service like this, you’ll need a conference headset for Lync.
Jabra’s headsets are all easy to use with the Lync or Skype app. Their Mono Wireless Headset comes with a touchscreen call manager. This headset is noise cancelling so that your business partners will only hear you, not the background. You can move around while wearing them, up to 150 meters away, and the sleek design looks great for a business meeting. You can connect this headset to multiple devices so no matter where your call is coming from, you’ll be ready to answer it.
If you spend all day in a headset taking calls, you may prefer something more comfortable. Jabra’s Evolve 80 Headset is a cushioned over-head headset that completely cancels out background noise for both you and the caller. You can stream music through them a well, and it works with Skype, Lync, Cisco, and other web-based calling softwares.
Microsoft makes their own conference headset for Lync in the Microsoft LifeChat for Business. This simple over-head headset is noise cancelling, and includes controls in-line so you can discreetly adjust volumes or even mute. There is an active light on one side that tells people around you that you’re on a call, and it requires no extra software to use. Simply plug it in and go.
Staying connected keeps all your employees on the same page, which improves productivity. Using Microsoft Lync and a good pair of headphones, you can get your meetings done and move on to implementing your great ideas.
