To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered my speaker on a Friday and it was delivered on the following Monday. The device is plug and play and it worked beautifully on my first call. It also only picked up my voice even though I had the fan blowing behind me.
A fantastic little gadget.. has made such a difference as I do now not have to sit with my headset on.. Its very good quality, both sound and microphone. I would highly recommend if you are spending time on long conference calls, it really has been life changing
Was looking for an inexpensive but quality speakerphone for the laptop as I started getting tired of wearing a headset during long conf calls. I got this unit for $75CAD during one of amazon's sales, after waiting for a discount to pop-up over 8 months.
This 410 entry level unit from Jabra is excellent. I've been using it now for about 6 months and have nothing negative to say about it.
Folks on the other side of the call say I come through very clearly, and likewise on my side. Volume is appropriate to hear everything clearly. It comes with a small neoprene travel case. The permanently attached USB cord is about 3 feet long, and wraps itself around the base. Love the built-in mute button as I use this option a lot during calls.
I tried the entry level Plantronics unit also, but was not as impressed. This Jabra is a much better deal. Build quality is high-end, and it's just a bit more intuitive to use.
The only gripe I have with the 410 is that the older version had a standard 1/8" headphone jack to plug in a headphone with mic. This newer version has cut costs and eliminated that feature.
We do alot of online conference calls at our business, and mainly use uberconference, skype and Zoom. We've had this about 2 weeks and used it primarily with Uberconference calls. We noticed the improvement in sound quality on our calls immediately and its been easy and great to use. No driver to install and it worked right out of the box when we plugged it in. We could hear our clients on the conference calls much much better, and its got easy volume controls and mute. Also the microphone is amazing and we even had clients tell us (unprompted) that they could hear us very clearly. I dont know why I didnt look for this and buy this 5 years ago....I've been suffering through years of poor audio conference calls. If anything I regret not getting the next model up of the Jabra... Though this version works great. Will likely order more of these for my team and get the upgraded one next time. Great purchase... dont hesitate on it!
It was easy to setup, simply had to plug in the USB. However, a loud static sound started emitting immediately, and non-stop. Sounds like somebody turned on some old school microphone in a hall. Then, I tried it out in a Zoom meeting, 10 minutes into the call it crapped out and turned off and on, messing up the computer making it hang. Tried the same thing on another laptop just to play music on it, same thing. 10 minutes into it, it turned off, made the youtube video hang. This thing hasn't worked on any of my PCs or laptops, even after updating the software as advised by their support. They offered a replacement but they notified me that they are severely backlogged and they do not have any information on a possible date when they will be shipping me a replacement. It has been weeks now. I am hoping this one was just a lemon and the replacement will actually work, otherwise this is money totally wasted.
Update: After receiving the replacement, it is now working flawlessly without any static noises!
I love this little speaker ! It works well for setting conference calls on the fly and anywhere you can connect your PC to the internet, and it comes in a great little carrying pouch to protect while on the run. I carry it with with me all the time and it has saved me several times when the audio equipment in the meeting room is not working correctly. If you facilitate a lot of meetings I definitely recommend keeping a spare one of these handy !
