To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
When that is working in Bluetooth mode with Laptop this is good , but configuration offered 2 different one noise cancellation and regular , and not connected properly , give up many time for Vide conf with team
I work from home and have been using a USB headset for quite some time however this leaves me tied to my desk during long calls. I wanted a hands free solution and had previously tried Bluetooth headsets however they were really unreliable. My colleague, also a homeworker, had recommended this product so I thought I would give it a try. You have the option of pairing with your PC or phone via Bluetooth, leaving the device entirely wireless, or you can plug directly into the PC via the attached USB cable (which winds neatly round the base when not in use). Whilst I really like the idea of the Bluetooth option, I have been told by callers that my voice is much clearer when the device is plugged in.
I have used the conference speaker many times now when using my VOIP phone and it has been a godsend. During a long meeting today, I was able to tap the 'mute microphone' button on the edge of the device and get myself a glass of water, stretch my legs etc whilst still listening in on the meeting. The quality of sound is fantastic and you can alter the volume up and down by tapping one of the buttons around the device.
When not in use, the speaker can be neatly packed away into its own little zipped bag. This would be perfect for taking away on business and using with a laptop or paired with a mobile phone for long calls.
I love it. 4 stars only as the quality of sound reported by my customers and colleagues when I am connected via Bluetooth is not as good. To be fair though, my PC does not support bluetooth directly and I had bought a separate dongle to facilitate this so it could be down to that.
I've waited a few months to review this device in order to try it under a range of conditions and I have nothing but praise for it. It's usually plugged into my PC so it's default speaker for all audio and video where it's a huge improvement over the lap top speakers but it's on teleconferences where it's main benefit is. My company uses Skype for Business a lot and the Jabra speaker makes these conversations far easier. Most of the time it is used with just myself or up to three others around the speaker / microphone and the clarity of the speaker is excellent. I've also had a number of comments saying how clearly I could be heard on the other end of the call. The speaker was also used in a conference room with 25 people, it was a bit of a stretch for the small speaker but everyone in the room could still hear and be heard.
The Jabra works, but it seems that there is a general issue with these units, we bought hundreds of them and almost every unit has some “interference” from time to time, not often, but when it happens you hear nothing else than a cracking noise. This noise is there for about 5-7 seconds and disappears - in theory it could be also caused by the notebook, but many of my colleagues have the same problem and we are not using all the same type of Laptop. I reduced the two stars, because this is very annoying - btw it only happens when it’s connected via USB - if it’s connected to a phone via Bluetooth it works perfectly. Sound quality is exceptional and the Mic works well
Ich verwende 8 Jahre alte Hardware mit Windows 10 (Laptop). Per Bluetooth ist der Lautsprecher als externer Lautsprecher im Akkubetrieb ständig dran. Videokonferenzen per google-hangouts, gotowebinar oder skype-business funktionieren am besten mit Kabel dran, sonst lässt die Konferenzsoftware (bzw. das plugin im Browser) nicht immer die Anwahl für Mikrofon und Audio zu. Mit Kabel dran...wird alles automatisch erkannt und funktioniert prima.
Tonqualität ist für ein USB/Bluetooth Gerät dieser Größe "satt" und ausreichend laut.
Ansprache aus einem Meter Entfernung (das Ding steht auf dem Schreibtisch) kommt bei der Gegenseite sauber, laut und hallfrei an. Die Distanz zum Mikro ist nicht spürbar. Nebengeräusche werden offenbar unterdrückt. Damit wird "meine" Beweglichkeit größer als bei einem Headset ohne Einschränkungen der Übertragungsqualität. Und ich puste nicht ständig ins Mikro und mache damit die andere Seite wahnsinnig :-D.
Die Anleitung ist rudimentär...mit den Berührungstasten auf dem Lautsprecher ist alles selbsterklärend (finde ich). Eine freundliche Frauenstimme sagt mir auch immer, ob mein Computer (alles ist "Smartphone") angebunden ist.
Die Tasten selbst sind sehr sensitiv...im Betrieb stellt man beim Umsetzen des Lautsprechers schon einmal unbeabsichtigt leiser oder lauter. Das Design mit den zahlreichen Löchern auf der Oberseite scheint mir staubempfindlich zu sein, so dass ich immer ein Brillenputztuch draufliegen habe. Das Mikrofon ist seitlich, es beeinträchtigt also nicht.
I bought this unit because I am now working from home I wanted to be able to better hear people I was listening to on Zoom or Skype conference meetings. It really does enhance the sound. I am told that the people at the other end also hear me more clearly. The other benefit I've found with this unit is that you can connect it to your mobile phone via Bluetooth, make the call via the phone but speak and listen to your contact with much better sound quality at my end. It saves me spending the whole time holding the phone to my ear, and it frees up my hands to look through documents or operate my computer whilst on the call. I spent ages reading other people's reviews on this unit and I really did wonder whether it was worth the money but I'm so glad I bought it. It is a quality unit I have had no issues with it whatsoever.
