with a Jabra Talk 5 Earpiece
and ANU CECS Beanie
|With a USB Wired Headset|
|Jabra Talk 5 Bluetooth earpiece|
The earpiece is comfortable, the sound is okay, but not as high quality as the headphones. The wireless range is adequate for my apartment. Also handy is that I can wear the earpiece with the ANU CECS beanie I received this-morning. ;-)
There are wireless headsets available for about one third the cost of the Jabra, but they have a much shorter talk time, and would not get me through the day.
There are a few glitches: it is difficult to pair the Jabra with more than one device. When I pair it with my phone, I then have difficulty repairing with the laptop. Also it is difficult to mute the microphone and be assured this as been done. The Talk 5 is the bottom of the Jabra range and there are units with more features, but it is adequate for my purposes.
The Jabra Talk 5 worjked fine with Zoom, but I experienced problems with a Microsoft Teams video conference. The audio started to break up. When I switched to a USB wired headset it was fine. It may be my low powered laptop doesn't have the CPU capacity to handle the Bluetooth. https://blog.highereducationwhisperer.com/2020/06/edutech-asia-virtual-free-online.htmlReplyDelete
