anyone got suggestions on the best headset for my softphone use? dont like cords hanging everywhere, so whats my options?
Our company uses the Plantronics BT600. So far it has worked really well. It's wireless (bluetooth), it's motion activated so it automatically answers when you lift it on your head, and it does a great job of blocking out outside noise. We had a bit of trouble with them at first as they don't come with a lot of instructions and the tech support is minimal, but once we got a few kinks worked out and learned how to properly calibrate them, they have been working beautifully.
Bluetooth 4.0 dongles for computers run about $7.00 on Amazon for all our older computers that is how we did it, and we connect with headsets from LG the LG Tone730 or LG Tone 750 (both models in use) the key here is to use a dongle and headset that is rated for the standard for Bluetooth 4.0 not the older versions of bluetooth. Buy one and test it with your RingCentral Desktop apps before buying in quantity - that is what we did. https://www.amazon.com/DayKit-Bluetooth-Adapter-Windows-Raspberry/dp/B01IM8YKPW/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_147_... We're using the dongles with Windows 7 Pro OS --- on the newer laptops we are on Win 10 Enterprise with embedded bluetooth.
