All four headsets were designed specifically for companies looking for a cost-effective means of deploying headsets across an organization and to accommodate for the different working styles and environments.

In addition to headset solutions for light to heavy users, the Jabra UC Voice series features a portable headset developed for virtual offices that is the industry’s first corded UC headset with a behind-the-ear wearing style and discreet form factor for video conferencing.

“Today there are approximately 7.8 million users of UC,” said Ralph Ede, Jabra managing director for South Asia. “By 2015 that number is expected to skyrocket to 49.5 million. Optimization of these investments by adding the voice dimension to the UC experience and attaching headsets that offer superior sound, comfort and build will have a tremendous impact when wanting to ensure the right ROI.”

Jabra execs also pointed out that the company is the first to make headsets optimized for Microsoft’s Office Communicator.

“In essence, this is a whole new category of cost-effective headsets,” said Larsen Sandoval, Jabra country manager for Philippines. “It can really make communications work in a business environment.”
