I'm setting up our company with Blue jeans--need some advice on what headsets have worked for you!

We equipped our Blue Jeans users with the Microsoft Lifechat-LX2000 headsets. They had a couple features we really liked. They fold up nicely for travelers and have decent sound quality and fit behind the head so they are more camera friendly. A couple gochta's we ran into. The headset have no adjustment so if you have a really big or really small head, might be an issue. Also, if you have Dell laptops, there is only a single audio port so it will not pick up the mic unless you get an adapter like the StarTech  MUYHSMFF 3.5mm  male to 2x3.5 mm female. What I also did was buy a headset buddy so this same headset will plug into my IP phone set and serves a dual purpose.

Hi Jenomite

Here's a relatively short list of audio devices that Blue Jeans tested and does recommend.  Virtually any Sennheiser headset will be high quality (good results with every model tested).


  • Personal Staff Favorite/Rankings:

    The UC Voice 750 was comfortable, and sound output was good, but the microphone let through too much “sibilance” (‘S’ sounds were too ‘hissy’), so the Sennheiser SC60 is still our top choice.

     The Plantronics DSP400 had decent sound, but the overall design was clumsy and somewhat uncomfortable to wear.

     Rankings:

    1.       Sennheiser SC60

    2.       Jabra UC Voice 750 duo

    3.       Plantronics DSP400

    4.       Logitech B530

    5.       Microsoft LX-3000

We picked up some basic Logitech h110 headsets, but have not had many attendees use them enough to get any feedback, as we often have more than one person sitting around a laptop - so headsets are not an option in these situations.

Hi Andrea,

For folks gathers around a laptop in a conference room you may want to consider a Jabra 410 or 510 Speak.

Jabra Speak 410 and Speak 510 - http://www.jabra.com/products/pc_headsets/jabra_speak__510_series

 

  • it's good for individual office use or for smaller makeshift conference rooms with a webcam setup on a LED display
  • make sure you order the USB  female to male extension cable if you're placing it in a conference room and want to bring the mic out to a conference room table

Thanks @Sandy, @Philip and @Andrea!
