Features and benefits

Table 1.        Features and benefits for Cisco Headset 500 Series

Feature

Description

Integrated serviceability

Headsets are easier to deploy, manage, and service with Cisco collaboration plus headsets. Centrally manage policy, defaults, and much more when using Cisco Headsets with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Webex Control Hub, and devices.

Premium audio and noise isolation

The microphone is exceptional at capturing wide bandwidth sound, with little signal noise and low distortion. It is composed of a high-quality electret capsule and unique housing design. The capsule’s orientation in the microphone housing creates a short acoustic path, which provides maximum acoustic sensitivity (best voice reception) and balanced noise reduction. The optimized microphone capsule and housing create a clean and natural sound with reduced background noise so the user’s voice can be clearly heard.

Lightweight and ergonomic design

Built with comfort in mind, these headsets are designed to be delightful to wear for extended periods of time and to reduce head fatigue. They feature quality materials, including multiaxial ear cups.

Advanced ear cup design

Our design creates a full and rich sound that makes collaboration easier and music more enjoyable. The ear cups feature efficient acoustic transducers and integrations.

Enhanced capabilities enabled by the USB headset adapter

Use this optional accessory to connect the headset to Cisco IP phones, Cisco Webex Desk Series, Cisco Jabber®, Cisco Webex Teams and Cisco Webex Meetings. It offers a more enhanced experience with:

  In-call indicators: LED(s) on the ear plate
  Simplified call controls
  Customized audio

Test and adjust microphone (record, playback, gain)**

The microphone test removes the guesswork associated with tuning microphone gain levels by enabling users to record themselves speaking in their work environment and then playing the recordings back.

Audio shaping**

This feature enables users to get the best phonic experience by shaping the inbound audio.

* Feature requires a USB interface for headsets and a compatible Cisco IP phone and firmware, or a compatible Jabber version.
