Cisco Headset 700 Series

As an over-the-head, snug-fitting over-the-ear headset, the style of the Cisco Headset 700 series will not be to everyone's taste. For those that like the style, I can confidently say that the audio quality, noise cancellation, and noise isolating microphones, are among the best across the competition. While the price point is on par with other high-end wireless/BT headsets, the styling and build quality means that these headsets fit in with the look and feel of high-end consumer brands, while delivering the performance and long-term reliability that is expected from a business solution.

GlobalMeet Collaboration is great for giving product trainings, presentations and webinars over the phone to a wide number of users remotely. It is well suited for meetings where screens and documents need to be shared live during a conference call for easy collaboration

Pros

Cisco Headset 700 Series

  • Compact and comes with protective hard shell case.
  • Has music capabilities for skipping songs which some other headsets don't have.
  • Sleek and modern looking.
  • Noise cancellation is good compared to Plantronics but not as good as Jabra.

GlobalMeet Collaboration

  • Something that GlobalMeet does well is distributing a meeting to users. The system integrates well with our Outlook system and allows easy meeting distributions.
  • GlobalMeet is good at providing an easy way to record web meetings. The feature works well and is easy to download after.

Cons

Cisco Headset 700 Series

  • The pressure on ears is a bit high, after some time ears start [to hurt].
  • Mute button is not conveniently located, sometimes it is difficult to find it.
  • Strange beep sound comes sometimes, don't know from where.

GlobalMeet Collaboration

  • There is a cost for the conferencing services unlike competitors like FreeConferenceCall.com or Skype which have free options. However, you pay for what you get and the audio/connection quality can and has been an issue for us with other vendors.
  • There are a lot of shortcuts that can be used on the line to mute/unmute lines, record the audio, request operator assistance, etc. However, these are difficult to memorize so we end up forgetting or relying on a print-out of the shortcuts that we keep near our desks. I wish there was an easier way to use these such as voice commands.
  • In the post-conference email recaps you get the phone numbers of those who dialed in. However, it can be difficult to know who these numbers belong to unless you remember the direct #s for the participants. I wish there was a way to save contact info for certain phone numbers within the system and let GlobalMeet add the names to the numbers for all future post-conference emails.

GlobalMeet is not a very good tool. There are better web meeting platforms available in the marketplace. The system is clunky, not intuitive, and experiences often technical issues. They have made updates recently but it is too little too late. It may be a good platform for smaller organizations with tighter budgets.

I have provided such a high rating because setting up the meeting only requires a few clicks. Within a couple minutes of telling my team that I will set up a meeting and send an invite, that invitation is already sitting in their inbox. I move at a fast pace and GlobalMeet is keeping up

For the most part GlobalMeet loaded everything quickly. The only problem that we had was when the whole company was on a training at one time, we had a hard time with screen sharing and the pages loading in a timely manner. Everything seemed to slow down when lots of people were on the system at once

Too expensive and too heavy and too uncomfortable. It just didn't deliver the experience that we thought we would get based on the price. I can get the same features, for cheaper, with a more comfortable headset from another vendor. So overall this one just never got put on the final list.

As previously mentioned, I was in charge of facilitating a weekly meeting with 60 attendees. I had major issues with the screenshare crashing repeatedly during the meeting. I got in contact with a GlobalMeet Technician immediately. He was extremely responsive and worked with my technician to resolve all of the issues quickly. After his intervention, I never had the same issue again.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Headset 700 Series

Plantronics Voyager, although it serves the same purpose, isn’t the same at all! The fact that we are a Cisco and Webex [shop] made it so simple once Cisco started offering headsets. Having to connect desk phones with Poly headsets required connectors and offered no visibility. Cisco managed to give a well designed and powerful headset alternative to everyone, but clearly a no-brainer for Cisco environment.

GlobalMeet Collaboration

Our small non-profit organization appreciates the ease of use of the platform for conference call needs. Other platforms can be much more complicated for users unfamiliar with conference call technology. We use it several times a month for committee meetings, regional rep check ins, and meetings with our board of directors.

Return on Investment

Cisco Headset 700 Series

  • Although expensive, you get what you pay for with crystal clear audio on meetings.
  • Being able to use this headset for multiple scenarios also makes the cost easier to justify.
Daniel Hosking | TrustRadius Reviewer

GlobalMeet Collaboration

  • The price for webinar for GlobalMeet is quite pricey compared to other similar vendors.
  • GlobalMeet can be used for unlimited free calls and video conferencing, hence in our company with extensive global calls this platform is very cost-effective.
  • Unlike most conferencing software. Other users don't have to download GlobalMeet App and therefore it is easy to send meeting invite to clients.
  • Attentively support system that responds fast to queries and this saves time for us.
