Sennheiser DW Pro 2 Phone Wireless Headset (DW 30PH)
The Sennheiser DW Pro 2 Phone Wireless Headset (aka the DW30PH) is the best quality headset you can get to work with your desk phone (only). It has an ultra noise cancelling microphone and a comfortable headband duo wearing style so it's perfect for very noisy environments or concentration. In the words of Tina Turner, the latest Sennheiser DW Pro 2 Phone Wireless Headset is ‘simply the best’; if you believe that quality is king, this is the headset for you. You will see several DW Pro 2 models on our website that all look the same - it's important to note that this particular model works with your desk phone only, whilst the original DW Pro 2 connects to both your desk phone AND your computer.
As a company we’re proud to be able to offer the full DW range to our clients and we challenge anyone to find a better headset range. Plantronics had dominated the market for such a long time but you can certainly argue that with the DW range, Sennheiser is the new heavyweight champion of the wireless headset world. The headphone and microphone gurus at Sennheiser have used their 60 years of audio experience and R&D to create headset perfection. As we always say, the golden rule of headsets is to buy the best you can afford and, we hope your boss has given you the ok to buy any model in the new DW range.
If you’re looking to answer calls away from your desk you'll need an HSL10 handset lifter or an Electronic Hook Switch depending on the phone you have (call our staff for assistance). The HSL10 fits on your telephone base and lifts the hand piece up or down when you push a button on your headset, letting you answer and hang up on calls from anywhere in the office. The Sennheiser lifter is unique in that it can be programmed to recognise 2 different ring tones and alert you accordingly so you don't have to launch into your company spiel for internal calls. A handset lifter for this headset is available separately, or as a great value pack.
So let's start by reviewing...
It’s not so much ‘the good’ in this instance as ‘the great’. We may sound biased but the Simply Headsets staff can choose to use any headset they want, and since its release, more than 90% of our team use Sennheisers, the rest we suspect must have been too busy so far to change!. That said, we challenge you to find a better sounding, faster charging, more intelligent, feature-packed headset - because we know we can’t.
To start off, the HD voice clarity of the DW Pro 2 Phone is brilliant. If you’re on the phone all day you’ll know that the clearer the sound, the longer you can listen. HD is like 3D for your ears! The best possible quality sound will give the best impression of your business, it will leave your staff less fatigued at the end of the day and as a result less likely to call in sick or be less patient with clients.
The range is up to a staggering 180 metres and the ultra noise cancelling microphone will amaze you (background noise is a thing of the past). The durable style is tailor-made for call centres and other environments where people treat headsets badly (often because they didn’t have to pay for them). It's very comfortable and of course can be worn all day.
How about this for clever; If you’re training someone, all you need to do is get yourself any model from the DW range. Simply place the headset to the base and it automatically conferences both headsets to the call. The same feature also works if you have multiple users sharing the same phone (eg. sharing a reception desk). When one user is finished they dock their headset and put it on charge, while the other simply starts their shift by ‘touching’ their headset to the base, which automatically pairs the two devices. This is simply brilliant for medical offices, hot desk situations and any other job that involves sharing duties, because no-one really wants to share a headset! The headset even comes with a little name tag area , so you always know which one is yours. If the desk is in use constantly, call us to discuss the best way to keep the batteries charged up..
The super fast charge of the DW Pro 2 Phone is SO handy when (not if) you forget to dock it overnight. Most headsets take an hour or more to charge to 50% but with a DW in just 20 minutes you'll have enough battery to see you up to lunchtime. The DW Phone has a 12-hour talk time (or 8 hours on high quality wideband), so even the heaviest user won’t run out of juice. Like the vast majority of Sennheiser products, this headset features ActiveGuard technology to make it G616-compliant. G616 is an Australian OH&S guideline created to protect phone users from loud, potentially harmful noises. These ‘acoustic shocks’ are transmitted down phone lines as a result of electricity spikes, weather conditions, transmission faults and the like. Failure to comply with G616 guidelines can result in fatigue, anxiety or temporary/permanent hearing loss, but Sennheiser’s ActiveGuard means you’ll be protected whenever you are using your headset.
There is very little negative to say about this product. However, if you want to get the most from this headset you’ll need to fully read the instruction manual. But don’t worry, it’s straightforward and easy to understand and our friendly staff are just a phone call away. The DW Office Pro 2 Phone only works with a desk phone (as it name suggests) - but fear not there is a model that also connects to a PC - the original DW Pro 2, which will of course allow you to rock out to tunes on your PC or Mac when not on a call.
Whilst manufacturers recommend anyone spending more than 4 hours a day on the phone should use a duo wearing style to spread the load, binaural headsets aren't for everyone. They make receptionists look a little unapproachable and if you like to hear what's going on in the office, you'll find yourself taking it off all the time which can be tiresome. If you're the sociable type, check out the mono version of this headset.
The Sennheiser DW Pro 2 Phone is an almost unbeatable headset to use with just your desk phone. The only real downside to this product is we know not every boss will spend just a little more to buy this productivity enhancing, brilliant headset. We hope that’s not the case for you.
Other Headsets To Consider Before Buying
We've already mentioned that this is a phone only model - if you need to use the headset with a PC or Mac (for Skype, video conferencing, dictation or just listening to audio files) check out the DW Pro 1 or the binaural DW Pro 1.
Don’t want to go with a Sennheiser? Another worthy contender is the latest Jabra Pro 9465. It’s an excellent unified communications option with office+ computer + mobile phone. It offers a sexy touch screen and is brilliant in its own right. Alternatively, Plantronics fans are raving about the latest Savi W720. Our staff tend to think they simply don’t have the flair or style of the DW range. What they do offer is the same UC capabilities of the Jabra above and mobile connectivity. At this level of quality you’ll be over the moon no matter which option you select.
