Claiming to be “the first mono wireless headset to incorporate Active Noise Cancellation to block out noisy environments for the user wearing the headset”, The Supreme UC headset offers compatibility with “HD Voice” capabilities, offers “Active Noise Cancellation” to remove ambient noise for the headset user, and also features “Noise Blackout 3.0” to “reduce background noise significantly”.
Jabra says its new headset series was “developed in conjunction with the rise of the mobile worker”, making “wireless communication universal for individuals working from the office, home or on the road”.
Able to pair with two devices simultaneously, the Supreme UC also comes with a “nano Bluetooth USB adapter” which the headset is pre-paired to for “plug and play simplicity”, which allows for “internet calls/softphones, along with traditional mobile phone calls when connected to a PC.”
With access to two paired devices, Jabra notes that “users can stay connected to both devices and switch seamlessly between the mobile phone and internet/softphone calls with the simple push of a button”.
The headset’s “patented flip-boom arm” also “enables users to power on and off by simply flipping the headset open and closed, making it both easy to activate and easy to carry.”
Fulvio Toniotti, MD of Jabra Australia and NZ, said: “As the workforce continues to move towards mobility, both inside and outside of the office, Jabra is focusing on making communicating on the go as productive and seamless as possible.
“The mobile worker is a key customer of ours, and we want to be sure we are offering products that keep them connected wherever, and however, they please,” he concluded.
Pointing to an IDC study, Jabra notes that “the worldwide mobile worker population is set to increase to 1.3 billion in 2015, accounting for 37.2% of the workforce, indicating that workers everywhere are leaving the 9-to-5 days in the office behind by working remotely, traveling and collaborating via the cloud. Much of this increase is driven by the popularity of laptops, smartphones and tablets.”
The Supreme UC also offers a free Android app called Jabra Connect (downloadable here), which “interacts with the headset making additional premium features available such as an easy “one touch” wizard for pairing [the] headset with [a] Smartphone”.
Available now, the Jabra Supreme UC will retail for AUD $179.95 excluding GST.
