Plantronics HW291N EncorePro Insider Info:
TECH REVIEW - When we tested the Plantronics HW291N headset internally, the first thing we noticed was it’s high-tech, sleek design, and sturdiness. It looks and feels like a premium headset before you ever put it on. When placing the HW291N on your head, the leatherette ear cushion is pillow soft against your ear and feels like a tremendous upgrade over the standard foam cushion of other headsets. Also, when using leatherette ear cushions, you will find they slide easily over your hair, where headsets with foam cushions tend to stick and tangle with your hair. The HW291N headband is adjustable, allowing for a snug and secure fit. As for the microphone of the HW291N, it really sets itself apart from other headsets, because you can rotate the mic up and down, as well as telescope it in and out. For optimal performance, you will want to rotate/extend the microphone so it’s positioned ¼ of an inch away from the corner of your mouth. The HW291N noise-canceling microphone uses multiple mics and electronically targets your voice while reducing background noise, so your caller hears your voice clearly over other background noise. The cable is approximately two feet long and ends in a unique connection called a Quick Disconnect. The Quick Disconnect will need to plug into a compatible amplifier or cable, depending on your application. When demonstrating the unit on live calls, the sound quality is amazing. You get a richness, or fullness, in sound quality like no other headset can produce with the EncorePro HW291N. Being a premium model of the Plantronics family of headsets, it will be more expensive, but if you spend more than a few hours a day on the phone, the extra expense will be well worth the investment, and you’ll benefit for years to come.
HOW TO INSTALL - When installing the Plantronics HW291N, the first task is to properly fit it to your head. Put the headset on with the ear cushion against your ear. The opposite side of the headband is called the T-bar, or temple pad. This should be positioned above your other ear and may require adjusting the headband by sliding it in to make it smaller or out to make it larger. The microphone needs to be ¼ of an inch (the width of your finger) away from the corner of your mouth when using the HW291N. You can rotate the mic boom up and down, as well as pull the mic outward to extend for perfect positioning. At the end of the headset cable you will find a connection called the Quick Disconnect. You will have a matching connection in which to plug the cable, located on your amplifier or cable, depending on compatibility and your application. Make a test call to ensure the unit is working properly. Also, many users disregard using the clothing clip, when in actuality it plays an important role in making the headset appear very light weight. By clipping it on or near your shirt collar, the weight of the lower portion of the cord stops at the clothing clip. You will never feel pulling on the headset or the need to reposition it as you reach and stretch the lower cord.
HOW TO STORE - When storing your Plantronics HW291N, it’s best to place the headband over a hook so it’s not just setting on your desk, and this also keeps the cord hanging freely. If left on your desk, the cleaning crew can easily bump it and knock it to the floor, where the cord can find its way into the vacuum. You also want to let the cord hang free and avoid tightly wrapping it, which over time will damage the internal wires. We developed a headset hanger to affix to your monitor in an effort to keep you headset safe and out of harms way. To view click HDI Headset Hanger.
HOW TO CLEAN - When cleaning your Plantronics HW291N, always use non-alcohol chemicals or wipes. Using alcohol-based products over time will break down the cords making them very stiff and clumsy to use. You will want to wipe all plastic components and cables, but avoid saturating any openings where electronic components are in close proximity. For the HW291N, this will include the small holes in the speaker casing and at the end of the mic boom where the microphone is located. The HW291N comes with leatherette cushions, which can also be wiped or replaced as needed. When cleaning your HW291N, also avoid sticking anything into the end of the Quick-Disconnect connection where the four metal contacts are located. This connection is made to last, and more damage than good will come if you try to clean it.
WHO USES THIS MODEL - The HW291N is a headset made for a business professional looking for the best possible quality in a corded headset. With one ear covered and the other open, the HW291N keeps you in tune with what’s going on around you and makes it easy to converse with others. The noise-canceling microphone will cut down on background noise, making the HW291N a great headset for louder environments. It will be priced approximately 30-35% higher than other mid range commercial-grade headsets, so a higher headset budget will be needed.
