- Jabra UC Voice 550 Duo
- Plantronics Blackwire C325
- Logitech USB Headset Stereo H650e
Logitech USB H570e
The Logitech USB H570e is compatible with most major unified communications (UC) systems — such as Cicso and Skype, meaning no matter how you communicate in the office the H570e should integrate easily into your existing system.
It's a light headset that won't weigh your head down or make your neck feel sore after prolonged use, and it has plenty of padding in the earpieces to make it comfortable to wear.
The microphone is also noise cancelling, making it ideal for noisier days around the office.
Starting around $33, the H570e is ideal for anyone who needs a headset that can connect to an existing UC system.
Microsoft LifeChat LX-6000
Directly from Microsoft, the LifeChat LX-6000 is certified for use with Skype for business, so you know your Skype calls are going to sound perfect.
The ergonomically designed earpieces are meant to relieve pressure, allowing you to wear the headset all day without feeling sore or fatigued.
No software is necessary for the LifeChat LX-6000, and it comes with in-line volume controls so you never have to worry about someone talking too loudly.
This headset is great for anyone who uses Skype as a main form of communication in both their professional or personal lives.
If you want to buy the LifeChat LX-6000, make sure you do it on Amazon — you'll save yourself about $30.
Jabra UC Voice 550 Duo
Starting around $69, the Jabra UC Voice 550 Duo is a workhorse specifically designed to make you sound great.
Working with all major UC systems, it has a fantastic noise cancelling microphone that will eliminate background buzz making you sound crystal clear every time.
Jabra's Peakstop technology is an extra bonus that stops loud sudden noises from blasting you in your ears. If you're talking to someone who has a yappy dog, Peakstop should stop the loud barking noises from coming through the headset.
For the price, the speakers could be a little better as they feel a little flimsy. That being said, if you want a headset that is going to make you sound great and work with your existing system, the Jabra UC Voice 550 Duo is perfect for you.
Plantronics Blackwire 325
The Plantronics Blackwire 325 is very lightweight, making it easy to wear all day without noticing any ill-effects.
The noise reducing microphone has a 270-degree adjustment angle, which means you will always sound clear, and you never have to worry about the mic being too close or too far away from your mouth.
The great thing about the Blackwire 325 is it has a 3.5 millimeter jack that plugs into a USB dongle. You can use either connection — it's compatible with phones and computers alike.
Logitech USB Headset Stereo H650e
The Logitech USB Headset Stereo H650e is the bigger, badder, and better version of the H570e we have at the top of our list.
On top of the noise cancelling featured in the other Logitech model, the H650e also has auto-echo detection, meaning you can be in a room where sound tends to bounce around, and the person on the other end of your call would never know.
The H650e also features a LED call indicator that will flash when a call is incoming, so you don't have to worry about missing calls if you take headset off for a second. Plus, the LED will stay solid red while you are on calls, which will alert the people around you that you are on the phone and hopefully prevent unnecessary interruptions.
Starting around $60 the Logitech USB Headset Stereo H650e is great for people who want to eliminate distractions and increase productivity.
