If you currently use Yealink desk phones, or plan to purchase some in the near future, you may be wondering what’s the best compatible wireless headset. If this sounds like your situation, then you’ve come to the right place.
In this blog I’m going to show you what I feel are the best wireless headsets for your Yealink phones. I’ll go over the specifications of these headsets, and talk about why I feel they represent the best value.
I’ll also put the microphone to some sound tests including how they do to reduce unwanted, distracting and of course, annoying background noise.
Before I begin though, I did want to mention that I did a video on this very subject. If you’d like to watch the video over reading this blog, you will have the opportunity to see the headsets up close as well as hear how they sound.
That alone might help you with your decision because sound quality always ranks high on buyers list of important features. I’ll insert the video immediately below so you’ll be able to easily access it.
Ok, if you’re still reading, then you may have opted to read this blog over watching the video. Let’s jump into this and see what these headsets are all about.
When it comes to headsets for desk phones, you have a lot of choices, not only among brands, but many models within those brands. Some include:
- Poly (formerly Plantronics)
- Discover Headsets
- EPOS (Sennheiser)
- And more . . .
So how do you narrow down the available options to arrive at the best wireless headset for your Yealink desk phones? To that question, I’m going to make things very easy for you.
GET A YEALINK HEADSET
Though that might seem like a very obvious answer, there actually are some very good reasons behind this recommendation.
Great Voice Quality
I don’t know what Yealink has been cookin up over there, but whatever they’ve been doing, I’d advise that they keep it up. Their microphones sound great and great sound quality is one of those high priority features that a wireless headset needs to have.
After all, the headset will typically be used for business purposes and in business, you need every advantage you can get, with professional sound being one important factor.
As I compared the Yealink microphone sound to others, I was impressed by the quality of the sound. So if sound quality is important to you, my sense is that you won’t be disappointed by the sound quality that Yealink headsets deliver.
Kills background noise like no other
I’ve tested a lot of headsets, including how well they do to remove distracting background noise. I’ve yet to test one that works as well as the Yealink wireless headsets. I ran these headsets through the paces by piping into the environment typical office noises (people talking, machine noise etc), and they performed flawlessly.
I took it up a notch, or maybe even more by placing a blender next to me and fired that up. Granted, most people don’t have blenders running in their office, but the noise is loud enough to give the wireless headset a real good test to see how much of that noise it can tackle.
I was a bit taken back by how well these headsets did. To me, I didn’t hear any of the blender sound, only my voice loud and clear. I’m here to say that’s not an easy test to pass, and the Yealink headsets not only passed, but they passed with flying colors.
If you work in a noisy environment, you’ll be hard pressed to find a wireless headset that will perform as well as this Yealink line of headsets. Flat out, they do a superb job of reducing, or I really should say eliminating unwanted background noise.
Remote call answering included
Another reason why I’m recommending the Yealink wireless headsets is because you’ll get remote call answering included. The Yealink phone has a USB port that allows the wireless headset to connect to it. Once connected, incoming call alert and the ability to answer the call and end it remotely is an included feature.
Other wireless headsets require you to purchase a separate feature; Handset Lifter or Electronic Hookswitch Cable which can add another $75.00 - $100.00 to the price of the headset.
The biggest value of having remote call answering is you don’t miss calls. That’s important because you avoid the risk of missing important calls as you’re always accessible, even when away from your desk.
As an added benefit, because you’re not missing calls, you don’t have voice messages to listen to, take note of, and return calls. Bottom line is you get more out of your day and waste less time.
Yealink wireless headsets can connect to the Yealink desk phones, and they also connect to computers. They’re optimized for Microsoft Teams and many of your other business applications such as Zoom, Google and others. This gives you a lot of flexibility.
Have a call coming in on your phone? Take it on your wireless headset even if you’re away from your desk. Need to jump on a Zoom meeting?
No problem, you’re going to sound great on your Yealink wireless headset, and oh by the way, while on that call, if you need to excuse yourself and go grab that cup of coffee that’s not so close by, you have a lot of wireless range so you’re likely getting that coffee while not missing anything on your call. Caffeine and communications, what a team!
Wireless Talk Range
The WH62 model is rated to go up to 535 feet, and the WH63, convertible model is rated up to 394 feet. In our test, they performed well to deliver long wireless range.
However, something to keep in mind is range estimates are normally done in an open field, or line of sight test. This means that there are no obstructions for the wireless signal to contend with because there aren’t any obstructions between the wireless headset base and the headset top.
In a real office environment, you have lots of obstacles such as walls, windows, people, desks, elevators and the list goes on. This reduces the strength of the wireless signal and as a result, reduces the wireless range.
Our recommendation is to take the stated wireless range and cut it in half. If that range figure is agreeable to you, then you’ll have a reasonable expectation. You likely won’t be disappointed once you get your new headset because your expectation is more realistic. If you end up getting more range, well that’s just icing on the cake.
Warranty & Price
The warranty on the Yealink wireless headsets is 2-years. That’s a good solid warranty. Some wireless headsets come with a 1-year warranty, so having a full 2-years is great. You can find some brands that offer 3-year warranties, such as the Discover wireless headsets, but those aside, having a 2-year warranty is solid.
As for pricing, the WH62, duo model runs $169.00, where the convertible model WH63 costs $199.00.
Yealink has other models, including the WH66 for example, that has a very cool 4 inch touchscreen that works flawlessly and gives you an impressive amount of things you can adjust straight from the touchscreen, with no software to download, which is huge for a lot of organizations who have software download restrictions.
All in all, the Yealink wireless headsets not only provide an impressive features set, but they’re priced right and sound great.
