Jabra PRO 900 Series Unveiled

jabra-900-series.jpgToday, Jabra launched the Jabra PRO 900 series, which includes two headset models - the Jabra PRO 920 (base unit wired to desk phone + headset is wireless) and the Jabra PRO 930 (base unit wired to PC [USB] + wireless headset). Jabra stated these are entry-level wireless headsets with a retail price of $199 is aimed at companies that cannot afford typically expensive wireless headsets, so they designed these headsets for this market.

I'm not sure $199 is exactly inexpensive, but I'd have to see how much competing products from Plantronics and others cost. In any event, they are targeting the Jabra PRO 930 for companies implementing Unified Communications and leveraging PC-based telephony, i.e. a SIP softphone, Cisco softphone, etc.  The Jabra PRO 920 on the other hand works with any desktop phone that supports Electronic hook switch control (EHS/HHC) and then you simply wear the wireless headset, freeing you from your desk by eliminating the need to disconnect or remove the headset.

Both the Jabra PRO 920 and Jabra PRO 930 contain sound quality enhancements such as Jabra SafeTone™, which protects hearing by cutting off sudden loud noises and securing safe average sound levels.  Each wireless headset also features a noise-canceling microphone that eliminates ambient background noise from an office environment when on an important call.

Key specifications of the Jabra PRO 900 Series include:

  • Crystal clear sound and safe sound levels
  • Soft, comfortable ear cushions for extended wearing periods
  • Adjustable headband for a perfect fit
  • Dedicated button to answer/end calls
  • Noise-canceling microphone
  • Volume controls
  • LED display with Battery, Mute, and Audio link indicators
  • Intuitive call control buttons on the headset
  • Up to 325 foot wireless range
  • Conference mode
  • Set-up voice prompts
  • Electronic hook switch control (EHS/HHC) [Jabra PRO 920 model]
I requested review units of both and hope to write them up as soon as I receive them.
