700 is well suited for professionals who do remote interaction with customers and clients on a daily basis. This device helps them provide top-notch sound quality, great noise cancellation, security and great compatibility with large set of devices. Superior noise cancellation and compatibility is important specially in an open workplace where many co-workers are speaking and the resulting noise causes lack of focus. Additionally, given its decent battery life and quick-charge feature, it can be used for over 20 hours which is a desirable. It is not very appropriate for professionals for whom, calling or remote interaction is not a very necessary part of the job. In such cases, if they use the
rarely and don't care too much about quality and security, there are other cheaper alternatives.

Read full review Pros In crowded environments, very clean and clear communication can be provided for both the person using the headset and the other party with the noise-canceling mechanisms. Smart Sensor Technology (Mute When You Remove Headphones) is a nice feature in my opinion. More importantly, it has over 15 hours of talk time. Battery life is very good.

I have yet to find a use case where the 730 is not appropriate. The audio quality and active noise cancellation capabilities are excellent, and the portability puts it above many alternatives.

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.

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.

I regularly try out new headsets but I tend to stick with what works best. My three top headsets are: 1) Jabra Evolve 75 - This has a boom mic [that automatically] mutes when lifted - Great feature when on regular calls! ANC works very [well.] Similar to the Cisco headset this doesn't have over-the-ear cups but the ANC works slightly better than the Cisco unit. 2) Jabra Evolve 85 - This is an over-the-ear model which has [superb] ANC. Also extremely comfortable with a well-designed desktop charger and [a] sleek boom mic that folds away into the right-hand ear cup. One thing to note with this headset compared to the Evolve 75 and Cisco is that it takes a while to get used to not being able to hear yourself when ANC is on. Once you get [past] that, you do feel like you're in a different and completely isolated space. Very little ambient noise gets in. 3) Cisco 700 series

Read full review Return on Investment I was provided with the headphones, but my back is not hurting anymore; before I was using heavy headphones. Due to the battery life we are able to have long collaborative meetings. The quality of the product means that the battery is healthy after 2 years. Read full review 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.
