Re: [cisco-voip] 500 series headsets

With respect to comparisons on that post to other vendors, on my DX it 
displaced a Jabra Evolve 80 (which I loved) and I immediately got feedback on 
the audio quality improvement.

My calls are primarily to Spark and WebEx meetings with video so these aren’t 
just g.711 calls so I’m probably not exactly in the target audience for this 
first line of headsets.

Most people in TAC won’t adopt until a wireless model is available.

Having the deep integration into Jabber and the phones will be really nice, but 
I've heard they are going to open this up to other headset vendors as well in 
the future most likely.

For softphones, I always have customers complaining of different software 
taking control of the headset and breaking audio for CIPC/Jabber.  If this can 
address those issues, it's definitely worth the premium price point and will 
help me to start pushing customers more towards softphones.

If it can provide some manageability features and possibly help out with
audio switching (like Brian said), we'll at least check them out.

I played around with them at Enterprise Connect.  They seemed pretty nice
especially with the phone menu integration to adjust settings and test
audio.  I wasn't a fan of how small the in-call indicator is.  I think they
should have made that a full ring.

Having the deep integration into Jabber and the phones will be really nice,
but I've heard they are going to open this up to other headset vendors as
well in the future most likely.
