The pandemic situation in which we were submerged in early 2020 led to an increase in the numbers of teleworking. According to a publication from El País, Europe, we have gone from 5% teleworking to 34% today.
And while it is slowly returning to the “normalcy” we were used to, it is true that it seems that telecommuting has come to stay in many companies. Without going any further, our team has been working from home for over a year.
This means that, among other things, we had to adapt to a new way of working in which the equipment you have will be crucial to be as efficient as you were in the office.
So, in addition to following the recommended guidelines for taking care of your mental health when working from home, you will need to use the appropriate technological devices.
This is where a type of technology designed exclusively for workers comes in: UC certified headsets. Obviously, this type of certification is important wherever you are, because the brands that make this type of headset believe that their products are suitable for any type of office worker, both the one who is always at home and the one who has to learn. to focus on noisy environments.
Jabra as the leader in UC professional headsets
If there’s one brand that has managed to grab our attention when it comes to UC headsets, it’s Jabra. We had the opportunity to test some of their devices intended for the general public or the general public, such as the Elite 85t or the Elite 75t, but also their Evolve2 65, designed to be used in offices and work environments. , precisely because of the CPU technology we were talking about.
When we talk about UC (Unified Communications) technology, we are referring to devices that have been certified by major vendors of IT companies, including Microsoft or Google.
These devices will incorporate tools and functions exclusively designed to work best with popular work suites such as Microsoft Teams, for example.
Normally, in work environments, programs are used to interact with other colleagues or to organize different tasks. When companies like Microsoft certify a device, it’s because it works well with their programs.
In this way, a UC headset will respect a certain quality environment thanks to all its integrated tools and functions that will make the technological dependence that we have in our work today much more intuitive, thus improving our productivity.
While Jabra has an incredible range of UC products (they have a line of headphones designed exclusively for professional environments), we have found other brands that offer this type of product as well.
This is the case with the Poly brand, which, although we have not been able to test any of its products, offers a wide range of devices certified by different publishers, as you can see on their website.
Other popular brands such as HP also offer products for business environments such as these HP UC Wireless Headphones, although they are not currently available for purchase.
The new line of UC headsets from Jabra
Demonstrating again Jabra’s care in making headsets optimized for work environments, it is worth mentioning that they recently announced a new line of UC headsets, the Evolve2 line.
These new headphones are able to adapt to different professional environments and of course, they incorporate the UC technology that we are talking about in this article.
This includes the ability to answer calls in Teams directly from a button on your headset or the ability to be notified when a voice call arrives. Without a doubt, small details that can significantly improve our productivity.
We will develop more detailed information about the product once we have completed our in-depth review.
