Good conf call speaker, have used it with my phone, Zoom & Teams via Bluetooth on my Mac, mic quality is OK when using the phone or a standard Bluetooth connection but is you use the supplied USB Bluetooth adapter then it gets much better, obv this can only be used on a PC or a Mac. Overall a really useful device for these days of home working.
Ce boîtier fait le job, petit et bien transportable, les son est assez bon, microphone assez résistant au bruit ambiant, compatible avec les équipements testés (laptop windows, smartphone, ...), utilisé sans problème sous Skype et appel Smartphone classique, autonomie ok. Bref, bien meilleur en réunion qu'un laptop seul ou qu'un Smartphone en mode mains-libres.
Facile a utiliser et parfait pour les conferences telephoniques. Tres pratique. Tres bon son, tres bon micro. Pour la musique, je ne recommande pas vraiment, le son est un peu metallique, sauf avec un deuxieme 710, auquel cas ca devient vraiment bien.
Reçu tres rapidement. Fonctionne très bien et se connecte facilement avec pc , mac, téléphone et tablette. Seul bémol l’application téléchargée pour l’optimisation des réglages n’est disponible qu’en anglais.
I've tried loads of different speakers but nothing designed specifically for conference calls and this Jabra Speak 710 seems to well-reviewed.
The main difference between this and standard Bluetooth speakers is the audio. It's basically been tuned to elevate mid-range frequencies to optimize voices, and it does that very well - voice clarity is amazing! Jabra says this is also ideal for music, but I have to disagree. To my ears, it lacks the punch and depth required for music. Even my little ANKER Soundcore Mini is better for music than this. It is, however, brilliant for listening to audiobooks.
The other difference is obviously the 360-degree omnidirectional microphone which also works fantastic - much better than a standard microphone. It is clear and picks up voices as far as 3 meters away. It's designed to work with up to 6 people, but realistically, it can work with as many people as you want as long as they're within 3 meters of the speaker. For bigger tables, I would recommend two of these speakers (paired).
This can be connected to any device that supports Bluetooth. For computers lacking Bluetooth, you can use the USB Bluetooth dongle located in the base of the speaker.
Unlike some Bluetooth speakers, this has all the buttons built-in to the actual speaker so you can control it without needing to touch the source device.
Battery life is estimated to be around 15 hours which seems about right.
Price-wise, it's not particularly great value, but given the fact it sounds and functions perfectly for conference calling, it's difficult not to buy one. Just stick a couple through the business. ;)
This is a really good and useful portable speakerphone. The size is compact - around the size of half an orange - the build quality solid, and the Speak 710 comes with a drawstring-closing fabric storage/carry bag. I had thought that the best use for this would be relating to its portability for travel purposes, but actually a lot of the same properties make this ideal for home working, when you don't have a home office/the one you have doesn't have a great deal of space/you don't want a load of clutter on your desk/you're trying to simultaneously home work and mind kids who aren't in school because of lockdown/you're working from a laptop and want to be mobile around your space/the family want to communicate in groups. We have used it a LOT more during the time in which travel has been prohibited than we did before.
This is a small but surprisingly effective device. It connects easily via USB or Bluetooth. We have used this with a range of devices including iMac, MacBook, Chromebook, Android phones, iPad, Fire tablet, and Galaxy tab. The battery life for this is excellent, and it can be used when charging. It's simple enough to use that my septuagenarian parents can set it up in order to talk to family members estranged by lockdown. The sound quality is excellent for such a compact device: this picks up 360 degree sound that permits family members spaced around a room to hear and be heard clearly. Beautifully presented, this would make a really nice present.
Absolutely love this beyond words and have been completely blown away by how great it is. We've had it a couple of weeks or so now and so have had lots of time to fall in love with it under lots of different scenarios. Didn't doubt it's capabilities for conference calls/family video calls etc and it captures audio really well from all angles on that front (people have been amazed on Skype calls when 3 or 4 of us are all gabbling around the kitchen table at once), but really wasn't sure how good this would be in doubling up as a decent Bluetooth speaker too, but it's absolutely awesome (likewise if you prefer it wired in) with not one drop out or buffering nonsense or any issues at all. Really great immersive cinematic sound for streaming videos or watching films as this knocks my laptop speakers out of the water and so much easier than wired in speakers or mediocre Bluetooth speakers at a desktop too - this connects with no issue what so ever, takes up hardly any space at all and also actually looks pretty awesome too. It's just very neat, easy and compact. So compact that it's hard to believe it could sound this good as it sounds tons better than Bluetooth speakers I've tried that are nearly 10 times the size.
For playing music whilst working it's also great as again it sits on the desk without taking up any space or any time/hassle with setting it up or issues and has a lovely full sound which you just wouldn't think could come from such a small speaker - it give it's all and asks for virtually nothing back! The perfect audio-spouse. Battery life is great for this level of audio quality too and only takes less than 3 hours to charge it up fully and I just can't think of a single bad word to say about it - although it has made me take even longer in the bath on a Sunday morning as I can just keep topping the hot water up whilst streaming Steve Wright on Radio 2 through this in the bathroom - bliss!
This is a product that targets a particular audience, people who may work in business who have a lot of meetings and conferences or someone who works from home running a business who needs hands free voice control with the best quality. I would say this is not the bluetooth speaker for someone who likes to listen to music alone, although the sound is quite good.
With a stand on the back this speaker can sit upright at your desk meaning the sound can be directed straight to you giving you the best positioning, Connecting to your phone is so easy through bluetooth and I found the interface which lights up very simple but effective.
The sound is well balanced and full bodied which can full up a room and does reach a good volume too, voices sound clear and crisp and is a definite considerable upgrade from your phones loudspeaker. Music on this had punchy mids and bright highs but the bass can become quite distorted when tested with some of the lows its fair to say i have heard better sound for music on bluetooth speakers half the price. But with being capable of giving fantastic sound with voices this makes this speaker ideal for audiobooks as it can sit next to you on your bedside cabinet.
This speaker is good at what it is primarily meant for with calls, but when you compare it as a whole to speakers this price range there are quite alot out there which are more well rounded with higher quality sound. This is perfect for somebody who is in business and needs a product like this, but I cant help but think this is very limited and marketed to a particular type of buyer and is also priced a bit too high when you look at it as a full package.
