Once this headset could have been said to have been mould-breaking, but the Plantronics Blackwire 7225 headsets can be seen now as adopting a new standard, a form factor which is already displayed by the likes of Sennheiser and Jabra. This design is created for versatility as well as comfort and functionality.
Perhaps the defining feature of this new form business headset is that it more closely resembles a set of leisure headphones. The Blackwire 7225 USB headsets have no boom, relying on the housed four omni-directional microphones for acoustic pick up. The design of the ear pieces is also more reminiscent of headphones, sporting comfortable, padded cushions which eliminate a lot of background noise.
We love thoughtful features and the inclusion of on demand active and passive noise cancellation. This allows the wearer to turn on and off the microphones whilst wearing the headsets so as to allow the pick up of background noise ( so that one does not have to remove the headsets when talking to colleagues ). Of course during a call this will be deactivated – increasing the concentration for the user.

From the headset one can also control calls – pick up, hang up, mute, etc and adjust volume. If you are listening to music between calls you can also access track controls such as skip, back and fast forward from the headset itself.
Headsets like the Plantronics Blackwire 7225 have evolved from the needs of phone users to have comfortable and easy to use headsets which will work on anything from a single PC using Skype to Microsoft Teams and indeed any Unified Communications platform. USB headsets.
