Cisco Headset 500 Series

The Cisco Headset 530 Series, which I utilized, provides rich sound and effective noise isolation, making it an excellent choice for telecommunications in noisy, open environments. Users may effortlessly plug and detach the Headset as needed during shift changes or breaks thanks to the in-line, high-cycle fast disconnect. It has a variety of options for connecting to devices, including USB and RJ-9 connections.

It works really well in a one on one settings when teachers are coordinating with individual trainers or workshops. It can be helpful as well during a team setting Q&A for follow up training. However, it is a struggle to use in large group settings when one presenter is speaking to a large group of people for trainings.

  • Learning how to work through multiple documents or presentations in a call can be tricky.

  • Audio can be limited to a large room setting in workshops.

Too expensive and too uncomfortable for extended periods of use. This headset was good quality and good mics/speakers, but in the end they were roughly the same as the cheaper headsets from the other vendors. So it was not really a win like I normally see with Cisco products, but I guess you cant win them all!

Haven’t had a chance to need to connect with the service staff as we haven’t had to deal with any large issues beyond internet bandwidth restrictions. However, we feel like support would be very quick and efficient if we were to need it. The observations of setting up our doc cams and getting connected with workshop presenters has been smooth so far.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Headset 500 Series

The devices work well, match our existing phones and look professional as well as operate with quality. Solid product, no issues. Price is a bit higher, but a solid product for the price. We tried a variety of units, but wanted to consolidate brands and models for documentation and training purposes.

GoToRoom does a great job of video conferencing with multiple users, similar to Zoom, but has easier access to documents similar to Google Classroom or Google Hangouts. It’s a nice blend of these three pieces of software.

Return on Investment

Cisco Headset 500 Series

  • Clear audio quality has been a big positive with more employees engaging in meetings & conference calls.
  • Unidirectional [microphones] are designed to hone in on the user's voice & simultaneously minimize background noise.
  • Lightweight comfort is really ideal for long calls.

  • It has been helpful for us to connect with professional development consultants that are out of our region.
  • It has provided opportunities for teachers to get training that otherwise would not have had an opportunity without driving long distances.
