Product Overview

Sennheiser SH230 Corded Headset

The Sennheiser SH230 is designed to be used with your desk phone, smart phone, or computer (each of which requires the correct connector cable). The SH230 headset has an over the head mono wearing style, and can be worn on either right or left by rotating the microphone. It comes with a standard earcup size (42mm).

All corded headsets come with a brand specific QD (quick disconnect) connection and require a same brand adapter cable to make them compatible with your phone. These range in price from $26 upwards. Many of these cables look the same but are different inside, so if you’re not 100% sure which you need, give us a call and our staff will gladly check for you.

The Good

The popular Sennheiser SH 230 headset offers a supersoft acoustic foam ear cup mounted on a ball joint for optimum comfort levels. It has a lightweight metal headband and the flexible microphone boom ensures perfect positioning every time.

Sennheiser’s patented Activeguard technology protects the user’s hearing from sudden loud noises which can cause acoustic shock. The headset comes with a handy clothing clip and a protective carry bag (perfect for hot-deskers). The narrowband microphone delivers a little more volume than the now more common wideband mics.

Sennheiser’s years of expertise & experience in high end professional audio has been ploughed into their headsets and has created the new benchmark in headsets. Even their entry level headsets are excellent.  The SH230 comes with the peace of mind of Sennheiser’s 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.

The Not So Good

The Sennheiser SH 230 headset has an omni directional microphone.  This isn’t the same as other manufacturer’s ‘sound tube’ or 'voice tube’ headsets which pick up more background noise but nonetheless isn’t suitable for noisy offices or call centres. 

As with any corded headset, with the Sennheiser SH230  you are tethered to your phone via a cable, this can be frustrating when wires lie across your desk and get in the way of papers or drop down and get crushed & tangled under chair wheels. The SH230 isn’t a wideband headset but does come in a wideband (IP) version if you’re looking to use it for VOIP.  If you’re thinning on top or have very short hair the thin metal headband may not be the most comfortable option for you.

If you don’t have a headset port on your phone, a corded headset will take the place of your handset. If you still want to use the handset you can pick up a switch to allow you to swap between the two, you can purchase a switch (known as a passive box) that allows you to toggle between headset & handset but this bumps up the cost a little - this is of course the same for all corded headsets

As we’ve mentioned, corded headsets need connector cables, so don’t forget to factor in those costs when budgeting. If you have a phone that is difficult to match for compatibility you may have to look at an amplifier. An amp, while providing superior call control (with mute and volume controls) and sound quality, will push up the price to about the same as a wireless headset (which  have an amp built in), no brainer – if you need an amp, get a wireless headset!

The Verdict

The Sennheiser SH 230 is a good option for those in quiet working environments, who like the style of the metal headband and the superior sound quality that Sennheiser headsets offer.

Other Headsets To Consider Before Buying

For users that are on calls for extended periods of time, or have a noisy workplace the Sennheiser SC 260 may be a better option to increase call concentration.  Have a look too at the SC 230. If staff sit close together and it’s really noisy the ultra noise cancelling of the CC 520 IP is definitely worth the extra investment  If executive styling is a driving factor the Plantronics HW291N may be a good option for you.

For those with older or less common phones, the Jabra range offers a smart cable which will provide a compatibility solution for the majority of phones. Have a look at the Jabra GN 2000NCM for a robust, quality solution or the Jabra GN2120 for something less clunky.

Another factor to consider is the extra productivity that can be gained from the freedom to walk away from your desk while on a call. It is worth checking out the Jabra Pro 920 which is a great entry level wireless option for only a small amount extra. If you’re already sold on the quality that Sennheiser bring to the table, have a look at their superb DW Office or DW Pro 1.
