Final Winner in this Category - Plantronics Voyager Focus UC

Keep the focus on your conversation, not background noise, with the sophisticated noise canceling and immersive stereo sound of the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC Stereo Bluetooth headset.

  Brand - Plantronics Voyager Focus UC   Model - 202652-02
  Item Weight - 550 Grams   Package Dimensions - 18.6 x 21 x 11.6 cm
  Batteries -1 Lithium ion batteries required.   Phone Talk Time - 12 Hours

The best all around stereo headset that can connect to your computer and mobile phone for calls and music. Features include excellent battery life, great music and voice audio quality, a comfortable fit for most people, plus active noise cancelling to minimize distracting outside sounds.

The Voyager UC didn’t have the best outgoing audio quality—how you sound to others of the models we tested, but you’ll still be easily understood, even with background noise, thanks to the three microphones inside the boom (to better capture your voice and identify and filter out ambient sounds) and noise-cancelling features. The headset’s controls are the easiest to find by feel for basic call functions, volume control, and music playback, and the Voyager UC comes with a dock, making it easy to keep the headset charged at your desk.

Budget pick - Jabra Evolve 65

 
  Brand - Jabra Evolve 65   Model - Evolve 65
  Item Weight - 322 g   Package Dimensions - 21.3 x 18.7 x 5.2 cm
  Item model number - 6599-823-309   Batteries - 1 Lithium ion batteries required. (included)
  Colour - Black   Phone Talk Time - 10 Hours

The Jabra Evolve 65 UC is a professional headset designed to improve concentration and conversations. Premium noise cancellation technology gives you peace to work in a noisy, open office; effectively creating a concentration zone around you so you can stay focused. Wireless Bluetooth technology gives you up to 30 meters / 100 feet of hands-free connectivity to PC, smartphone and tablet. Up to 10 hours battery life eliminates battery concerns. Simply tap to connect devices with NFC. Dual connectivity enables you to connect your headset to your PC and one other Bluetooth device at the same time, so you can take the call on your preferred phone device. Busy light signals user availability. The microphone boom arm can be integrated into the headband when not on a call. Microphone mute on boom arm. Built for style and comfort with leatherette ear cushions. Soft pouch included.

Battery life as long as our main pick, great incoming audio quality, and the option of wired use for your computer.If our main pick is unavailable and you need something right now, the next-best option is the Jabra Evolve 65. It’s a little flashier thanks to red accents and accessories, but it’s no slouch in the battery and audio departments. Just like our main pick, it survived our battery test with lots of juice to spare after a full day of work. It’s not quite as comfortable for all-day wear because it has no cushioning at the top of the headband, but it still earned good comfort marks from our testing panel due to well-cushioned earpads and light weight. Its buttons aren’t as easy to use by feel and it lacks a dedicated mute button, but voices sound clear and music playback is good (if a bit bass-heavy). If the battery dies, you can still use it as a wired headset by connecting it to your computer with the included USB cable, and the Evolve 65 folds flat to fit into the included carrying case.

The Competition - Plantronics Savi W720

 

 

  Brand - Plantronicstd>   Model - Savi W720
  Phone Talk Time - 9 Hours   Package Dimensions - 14.4 x 5.3 x 18.1 cm

The Savi W720 manages all connections—including Bluetooth for your mobile phone—through a base that needs to be plugged into a wall outlet, and there’s no way to use it away from the base. Outgoing voice quality was very good and callers’ voices sounded clear, but the Savi suffered from flat, AM-radio sounding music playback.

Its earcups are well-padded, but the headband has no padding. Though the headset is light (just over 2.5 ounces, thanks to lots of cheap-feeling plastic), its mild clamping force make it comfortable to wear for long calls. This is the only model we tested that connects to a landline in addition to a mobile phone and computer. If you need all three of those connections and you don’t care much about music quality, you might consider this one.

Three way multi-device conectivity. Now you can manage PC, mobile and desk phone calls with the most intelligent wireless headset system on the market. Over-the-head binaural wearing style.

The Competition - Sennheiser MB Pro 2

This headset manages all connections through its base. It can connect to a landline and your computer, but it has no means to connect to a mobile phone. While outgoing audio was fine in a quiet office, the MB Pro 2’s outgoing noise cancellation didn’t do a good job separating my voice from the background noise during testing. It has excellent battery life and the headset itself is light at just under 3 ounces, but music playback is painfully tinny.

  Brand - Sennheiser   Model - MB Pro 2
  Item Weight - 64 g   Package Dimensions - 20.3 x 8.3 x 16.9 cm
  Item model number - MB Pro 2 UC ML   Colour - Black

Product Packaging:Standard Packaging Sennheiser MB Pro 2 UC ML is a premium Bluetooth stereo headset optimized for Microsoft Lync. The headset is designed for business professionals who demand wireless communication freedom, brilliant sound quality, and exceptional wearing comfort.

The Competition - Sennheiser SD Pro 2

 

 

  Brand - Sennheiser   Model - SD Pro 2
  Item Weight - 85 Grams   Package Dimensions - 17.5 x 16.5 x 16 cm
  Item Model Number - 506011   Phone Talk Time - 12 Hours

Virtually identical to the MB Pro 2, but the SD’s accompanying base is for charging only. The headset connects via Bluetooth through a dongle for your computer and directly to your smartphone. It performed nearly the same as the MB Pro 2 in battery life and audio quality, including the same tinny music playback.
