Jabra BIZ 1500 Duo Corded Headset
Jabra BIZ 1500 Duo Corded Headset is Jabra’s no frills, entry headset which can be used with your desk phone, smart phone, or computer (each requires the correct connector cable). It has a noise cancelling microphone which rotates to allow it to be worn on either ear. The Jabra Biz1500 Duo is a popular one with the loyal Jabra (previously known as GN Netcom) followers for its basic durable style and low price point. The Biz1500 series will be replacing the hugely popular GN2000 range.
All corded headsets come with a brand specific QD (quick disconnect) connection and require a same brand adapter cable to make them compatible with your phone or other device. These range in price from $15 upwards. Many of these cables look the same but are different inside, so if you’re not 100% sure which you need, give us a call and our staff will gladly check for you.
The Jabra Biz1500 Duo is a good quality headset for those looking for a basic durable solution. It comes with a light weight adjustable headband and noise cancelling microphone which prevents any unwanted noise being heard by your callers. The Biz1500’s hardy design makes it an excellent solution for heavy handed users in call centre type environments.
Unline the previous GN2000 range the Biz1500 is a wideband headset so gives great clarity and sound to the user
The Not So Good
As with any corded headset, with the Biz1500, you are tied to your phone via a cable, this can be frustrating when wires lie across your desk and get in the way of papers or drop down and get crushed & tangled under chair wheels. If your work requires that you get up from your desk (whether on a call or not) you’ll need to unclip the headset or take it off each time & reclip / put it back on when you return. If you do this alot it can get super-annoying so a wireless headset could save you time, hassle (and hair!).
If you don’t have a headset port on your phone, a corded headset will take the place of your handset. If you still want to use the handset you can pick up a Jabra dana switch to allow you to swap between the two.
As we’ve mentioned, corded headsets need connector cables, so don’t forget to factor in those costs when pricing up your headset. If you have a phone that is difficult to match for compatibility you may have to look at an amplifier. An amp, while providing superior call control (with mute and volume controls) and sound quality, will push up the price to about the same as a wireless headset (which have an amp built in), no brainer – if you need an amp, get a wireless headset!
The Jabra Biz1500 is for users looking for a no frills durable headset, at a low price.
Other headsets to consider before buying
If you are looking for a basic corded option but not adamant on it being Jabra, have a look at the Plantronics HW520 or the excellent Sennheiser SC 260. If you’re a Jabra loyalist but want something with a little more quality, the Biz2300 and Jabra Biz 2400 are good options.
