I need to figure what headset to buy. Will the real VoIP stand up?

Buyers often confuse their requirements when thinking about VoIP. Voice over Internet Protocol describes the use of audio using the internet. Services like Skype, Yahoo Instant Messanger, AOL, MSN offer the ability for users to communicate over their computer. this is VoIP.

When searching for headsets users need to seek USB plug in units to make this work.

VoIP also supports many businesses without the need for a direct USB connection. For example, a business phone system can transmit voice over the internet but the user will still have a traditional looking phone sitting on their desk.

In this case, the user has a VoIP phone system and should seek a compatible VoIP headset that does NOT have a USB connection. Instead they should buy a headset with high bandwidth capability that will allow them to take advantage of the sound range available for the same money.

Headset buyers often don't know exactly what type of phone system they have before they look. Users should check with their IT person prior to their search or call the headset retailer for help. Good resellers will have the expertise to help guide the buyer in the right direction.

Headset Wearing Styles

I often get the question about what headset wearing style is better, over the head? Over the ear? Behind the neck? I always turn this around and ask what the customer prefers!

After all, I don't have to wear it. Choosing a wearing style comes mostly down to personal preference. People may not like things over their hear, or things in their ear or on top of their ear. We find that if headsets are bought ad given to people to use, they Will not use it unless they like the wearing style.

For example, a common issue among women is that many do not like wearing things over their head, so they move the to over the ear or behind the neck style.

People that are hard of hearing, they may opt for a binaural headset (two ears) so that they can get sound from both ears. This choice would force an over the head wearing style. Hearing aids may also restrict certain headsets from being properly fitted as well.

Fortunately, Plantronics makes headsets for almost every type of user's style and preference. Have a look, our company features the entire headset selection available. If you have trouble or want to save time, drop us an email or better yet call. We can usually narrow down the appropriate choices in a matter of minutes.

The difference between a Plantronics HW and H Series Headset

Plantronics has come out with a new technology called High Wideband width that is geared towards newer phones or those backed by VoIP technology.

These newer systems operate in a wider decibel range that is captured by the HW series headset. The bottom line is, users of these headsets can take advantage of the full decibel range of sound and hear better then if they used a regular H series headset.

For example, the H series headset operates at a range of 300Hz to 3400Hz, while the HW headset operates between 150Hz and 6800Hz.

A Plantronics H series headset will still work on a wide band system but not offer optimal sound. On the flip side, a Plantronics HW headset will work on a older system with no sound degradation.

When deciding on what to buy I would suggest buying the HW series where possible. Cost wise they are similar, and if you happen to upgrade your system, the HW headset doesn't need to be replaced.

Currently, Plantronics offers a limited selection of wearing styles which may not suit all users, so personal preference may take precedence.
