Plantronics/Poly HW540D Digital Corded Headset Plus DA90 Cable

The HW540D EncorePro is the latest generation of corded headsets from Plantronics. It's designed for use specifically with the USB cable and softphones -NOT for use with desk phones. It's a headset combo that is ideal for large operations, with features that keep track of inventory and its usage and updates, plus settings that can be updated and locked in, en masse, via Plantronics' Manager Pro Software.

What is Poly? Plantronics + Polycom have merged to create Poly

The headset and cable are supplied in this combo, so that a Y cable can be used for training. It's worth noting that it must have a DA USB cable to work. If you already have a Plantronics/Poly QD to USB cable, we can supply the headset alone - just give us a call. If you won't need this training (aka double-jacking) functionality, the HW515 USB is definitely a simpler and more economical option.

The DA90 cable is the clever part of the partnership. It works with Plantronics/Poly Manager Pro to give you a fully-integrated audio and asset-management solution, specifically-designed for call centres and large corporations. IT departments will love this headset. They can see where the headset is, how much it's being used and roll out firmware updates en masse - even notifying the users. Troubleshooting can be performed remotely and the settings controlled by the user within parameters set by the IT department, via the software.

The HW500D series comes in a range of wearing styles - 510: over-the-head, one-ear; 520: over-the-head two-ears; 530: ear hook-style (with ear cushion, not earbud); 540: over-the-head, earhook AND neckband styles included. If you like the over-the-head (headband)-style, the 510 and 520 will be the most durable.

The Good

This EncorePro model is the mid-range from the hugely popular Plantronics/Poly suite of headsets. The microphone features noise-cancelling to ensure no distracting background noises are transmitted to your callers.This is a wideband headset, which means it offers the most natural-sounding voice clarity for VOIP calls.

Built to take the abuse that unfortunately often comes with call centre usage, it has laser-welded construction & aircraft-grade aluminium joints. As you'd expect from Plantronics, it comes with great noise-cancelling capabilities thanks to a quality microphone. To make it even better, the boom arm is flexible to allow premium positioning, with wideband sound for clearer conversations. For your protection, it also has Plantronics/Poly Soundguard to minimise risk of acoustic shock from loud & sudden noises, as well as regulate the overall average volume level to a safe daily level. That's peace of mind!

Clearly the trackable and monitorable features that the Encore Pro Digital series offers will appeal to any IT manager of a large organisation - but it's not just the big guys that will benefit! If your IT person is also your office manager, or if you have an external IT expert, you can save so much time by rolling out updates in one easy go. And, your staff can be advised in advance of the change, so they ensure the headset is left plugged in and also make sure firmware updates can be executed out-of-hours to minimise disruption and loss of work hours. Then, when Jimmy's headset goes walkabout - AGAIN - you can check where it was last plugged in, or where it's plugged in now. No need to rifle through every drawer and cupboard in the office any more! (Because we know you've got much more productive things to do!)

The Not-So-Good

Corded headsets are pretty rare outside of call centres these days - most people prefer the freedom of a wireless headset and, starting from around $225, it's hard to say they are too expensive! A wireless headset can make you more productive. rab a quick cuppa while listening to your caller, locate a file or resource whilst building more rapport - you can understand why businesses have moved away from corded headsets.

As with any corded headset, with the HW500s, you are connected to your computer via a cable - something that can be frustrating when wires lie across your desk and get in the way of papers, or, worse still, drop down and get crushed & tangled under chair wheels. Annoying!

The Verdict

For enterprises with large volume UC rollouts who need need the ability to monitor usage and keep track of location of the headset, as well as roll-out firmware upgrades, this is a great lower cost option. The Digital HW500D series is specifically for those who need to pair up headsets for monitoring, conferencing and training requirements. We know your team will love it as much as we do.

Alternatives To The Plantronics/Poly HW540D Digital Corded Headset Plus DA90 Cable

The Jabra alternative is the Jabra Biz 2300, with Jabra Link 265. If you don't need the call monitoring capabilities, then the direct connect USB HW545 will do the same job - and with less cable hassles. If it's an noisy environment, the HW520D will help block out colleagues.

If you just need a straightforward USB-corded headset, check out the Jabra Biz 2300 USB Series, or the excellent Sennheiser SC 230 USB headsets. Both are well worth a look.

If you want the productivity, freedom and engagement that comes free of charge with a wireless headset, check out the Jabra Pro 930 Series and the Plantronics/Poly Savi W440, or even the gorgeous Sennheiser D10 USB. Happy shopping!
