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.
Seemed like a high-quality product as I've come to expect from Jabra. Some premium feeling features like metallic speaker grille and backlit buttons. I like that it can be wired, use it's own proprietary wireless dongle for high quality wireless connectivity, or use bluetooth.
But at ~$100 more than the next level down (which offers the same features), I didn't find either the mic or speaker quality that much better (I mean a little, but not that much).
I also think there's a design flaw here, as after a week or two, it started getting "raspy" with high tones, which would go away if I applied a little pressure to the centre of the speaker grille plastic, but then would return. Not acceptable for an audio product, let alone a $300 speakerphone. Hopefully this was just a fluke but it feels like it might be common given how quickly it came up.
At the end of the day, I bought the 710, 510, I have the 410, but I ended up keeping the Anker PowerConf S3. Sound was good (or better), has BT and wired connectivity. Can charge your phone too. More compact.
Le produit fonctionne bien et est facile d'utilisation. Dommage qu'il est impossible de monter le son a un niveau plus élevé. OK donc pour une reunion dans le calme. PAS OK pour écouter de la musique ou regarder des films.
I gave the Jabra Speak 710 a go, in a 10' x 16' conference room with a dozen people seated around a table. The Jabra was paired with an iPhone 7 which sat on the table near the Jabra. We were generally able to hear the individuals on the phone well (see dealbreaker below), but the microphone didn't always pick up everyone in the room very well. The inconvenient workaround was that we had to move the Jabra around, specially if the person speaking had a softer voice.
The dealbreaker, however, was the periodic dropouts. They were relatively short, but unacceptable at the end of the day. This was in a setting with relatively little RF interference.
Their suround-sound technique cuts into clarity. I couldn't hear words or instruments as clearly. Sounds a bit like being underwater or adds a hollow sound. If what you want is volume with most the sound coming through this would fit your bill. But I want more quality sound clarity and was disappointed in the poor clarity. The 510 is better than this speaker for understanding the speaking voice if you are using it for phone calls or computer video calls.
The volume on this is great for its size. I do get crackling from time to time though. I use LTE over wi-fi, so it’s not my reception. The touch controls around the edge are terrific and easy to use/understand. Battery life is strong. It would be great if the power cable could detach from the device so I don’t have to crawl on the floor to unplug it and use it somewhere else. Bluetooth connection to my phone (when I turn the speaker on) is near instant. The biggest challenge is people often can’t hear me well, even when I’m only 1ft from the device. I find being on speaker phone on my iPhone ends up being such a similar experience that I can’t recommend buying this device if you have a decent smartphone. I was really hoping the mic on this would be better than it is given the price compared to other products in the lineup.
