Plantronics HW520V Corded Headset:

The Plantronics EncorePro HW520V business grade headset is an all-new generation of headsets for customer service centers and offices, designed for the future, and built on experience. The EncorePro HW520V single ear headband style delivers greater comfort for all-day wearing, voice tube (microphone) technology for use in quieter environments, and increased reliability so conversations can continue without worry.

Binaural HeadsetThe Plantronics EncorePro HW520V is the next generation of our most popular over-the-head monaural headset. Completely re-imagined for the demands of the modern customer service center and office, the EncorePro HW520V has soft ear cushion (optional leatherette cushions also available) for all-day wearing comfort, metal joints that will above all deliver durability and reliability and an adjustable voice tube with visual and tactile positioning guides for precise positioning and clearer conversations.

Most noteworthy, any headsets using a voice tube, they work best in quiet environments.  They don’t have noise-canceling technology so any background noise most likely will mix in with your voice for your caller to hear.

Finally, as with any Plantronics headset you will also need an amplifier or Direct-Connect cable for a complete solution that connects to your phone, PC or mobile device.
