Today’s users are moving around during their workday more than ever, resulting in an increased desire for headsets that meet the needs of various workstyles. We are excited to announce that Cisco is adding true wireless earbuds to the headset portfolio. Expanding the partnership with Bang & Olufsen allows us to deliver luxury earbuds with a sophisticated style, outstanding audio, and the unique features professionals require.
We’ve focused on creating a class above consumer-grade earbuds with purpose-built technology designed with professionals and IT teams in mind.
These are the only earbuds optimized for Webex and Cisco devices with the ability for IT teams to securely manage all Cisco devices from a single platform, Webex Control Hub. IT can simplify deployments and manage inventory to help ensure users have the latest features and enjoy optimal performance.
The features that make these earbuds your all-day audio companion.
Having worn these earbuds for months now, they are my go-to wearing style. My favorite feature is being able to wear one earbud at a time (left or right) giving me 10 hours+ of talk time a day when at my desk, on my mobile phone, using a video device, or my laptop. It just works! Having the direct integration into Webex gives me background noise reduction, with Webex’s AI-powered noise removal, so I can be in any location without distracting the person I’m talking to. These have been tuned by the best acoustic team in the world and the experience is amazing for music or watching a movie, on a plane, train, or the home office. We have taken a luxury consumer brand and married it to enterprise-grade voice communication.
The charging case is easy to carry around and provides quick charging from a USB-C or via a wireless Qi connection, making it simple to charge with your mobile device or laptop. It’s not too bulky either to carry it in your pocket for a night out or when headed to work.
Companies are spending millions on wireless earbuds via internal purchases for employees. IT teams may not know how much it costs their organization, how often they’re refreshed if the features are up to date, the firmware version, or what the user experience is like.
With the addition of the Bang & Olufsen Cisco 950, we can offer IT a full portfolio of collaboration devices that can be easily maintained and managed in Control Hub with no additional software or service fees required. Users can stay up to date by upgrading to the latest firmware via Webex or the mobile app. With Control Hub, IT can track their return on investment for peripherals – in addition to – phone and video devices.
Last year, Cisco launched the Bang & Olufsen Cisco 980 as part of the 900 series. This over-ear headset allows user to create their own headspace from anywhere. The memory foam ear cushions paired with Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation – give hybrid workers the ability to tune out all noises.
In the range of wireless headsets designed for hybrid work, Cisco also offers the Headset 700 series which includes 2 on-ear models, Headset 720 and 730, with both a boomless or boom arm options, Bluetooth® 5.0, AI voice-activated microphones, and more. The Cisco Headset 720 is newly certified for Microsoft Teams.
The most iconic set of Cisco Headsets is the 500 series, which features 3 styles, all available in mono or stereo-wearing styles:
Finally, the 300 Series was released last year as the essential wired headset with multiple earpad options and enhanced productivity features such as a dedicated Webex or Microsoft Teams join button. Certified for Microsoft Teams.
