What makes the BH71 a must-have headset
You don't have to look far to find other headsets that look similar to the Yealink BH71. All you need to do is have a peek at the Poly Voyager 5200, the BlueParrott M300-XT. or the Jabra Perform 45. All of these headsets give you the same basic wearing style, but having said that, there are differences.
In spite of those differences, this blog isn't intended to do an in-depth, side-by-side comparison of the BH71 to other brands. Instead, it's designed to highlight the things we really like about the Yealink BH71, and why we think it's your best choice for this style of headset for on-the-go, and around the office. With that said, here are some of the things that have us liking this headset (a lot).
Earpiece is adjustable
I know, you're probably thinking that having an adjustable earpiece isn't a big deal, right? If that's what you're thinking, then you might want to pump the brakes on that thought for a moment.Those who prefer to wear a headset on the ear commonly find challenges such as:
- Finding an earpiece that's comfortable
- And finding an earpiece that won't fall off, especially when you're on a call
Believe it or not, these struggles are real.
Many people can't wear a headband style headset because the clamping pressure of the headband can give them a headache, or even worse, a migraine. That underscores the importance of having an earpiece that will stay on, and is comfortable..
The Yealink BH71, with its adjustable design, accommodates ears of varying sizes. So whether your ears are large, small or any size in between, the Yealink BH71 can adapt to fit your specific ear size. And that helps to assure a snug, yet comfortable fit for all day wearing.
Little things matter
Everyone who uses a headset has the need to adjust the hearing volume once in awhile. Some headsets make this simple task easy, while others, not so much. For example, the Voyager 5200 volume adjustment buttons are located on the back of the earpiece, and they're a bit stiff, and somewhat difficult to depress once you locate them. The Yealink BH71 makes adjusting the volume much easier because it has a conveniently located volume dial placed on the side of the earpiece. Simply dial it up to increase the hearing volume, and dial it down to lower it. We think it's easier, and more user friendly.
Power to spare
The Yealink BH71 gives you longer talk time than many headsets having this same basic design. The Yealink BH71 gives you up to 10 hours of talk time, and if you're using the version that has the charge case, (BH71 Pro, or BH71 Workstation Pro), you get two additional charges for a total of up to 30 hours.
This means that you can use the BH71 for days, maybe even a week before needing to plug iin for a recharge. That gives you a lot of battery at your fingertips to power your way through all your voice and video calls.
There are many reasons to use a USB Adapter. Some of them include:
- A better wireless connection
- Better voice sound quality
- Longer wireless range
- And, remote call answering (answering calls when away from the desk)
When considering which model of BH71 is best for you, you may want to ask yourself if any of the things listed above are important to you. If so, and if you plan on using the BH71 with a computer, then you'll want to consider the BH71 Pro, or BH71 Workstation Pro shown below.
These variants come with USB adapters which allow you to use the BH71 with your computers for an enhanced audio experience. As an added bonus, you also get the hard shell charge case.
Professional sound, and noise reduction
All four models of the BH71 were designed to provide you with professional sound quallity. Whether you're using the BH71 with a mobile phone on the go, or the Workstation Pro for use at the office or anywhere else, you'll get sound quality that's professional grade.
The Yealink BH71 comes with a four mic, beamforming noise canceling microphone array for delivering great audio quality, that also help remove distracting background noise. In fact, Yealink states that the BH71 is designed to remove 90% of background noise.
Weighs next to nothing
If you're in search of a comfortable, lightweight headset, then you've come to the right place.
The Yealink BH71 weighs just 18 grams, or .63 ounces. Putting that into perspective for a moment, that's the same weight as 3 sheets of paper. As you can imagine, that's light, and when it comes to headset comfort, weight matters.
A workstation base like no other
Two of the available configurations of BH71 includes the Yealink Workstation base, the Workstation, and Workstation Pro. This is a highly unique, feature rich headset base that you won't find offered from any other brand. As headset bases go, just referring to it as cool doesn't do it justice because it's much more than that.
As you can see from the image above, the Yealink Workstation base contains some very unique, and impressive features.
Built in speakerphone. Not something you commonly find on any headset, from any brand. This is a helpful feature for those times when you don't feel like using the headset, or you want to have a few colleagues join your call.
Touchscreen. This is another uncommon feature that's far more than a gimmick. This touchscreen is highly responsive with next to zero lag, and it allows you to easily, and conveniently access headset features and functions.
3 port USB Hub. Once more, this is a feature not commonly found on other headsets. Most of us find ourselves short on USB ports, and the BH71 3 port Type A 3.0 hub gives you three additional ones for your devices.
Integrated Qi wireless charger. You can skip the extra cord on your desk to recharge your mobile phone because the BH71 has a wireless charger built in. You can choose to lay the charger flat, or tilt it up to 70 degrees for easy viewing while charging.
Triple connectivity. You get two USB connections for phone and PC, as well as Bluetooth. That gives you the ability to use one headset across multiple devices for much better efficiency and convenience.
If you search for a headset that has these same features, you'll be at it awhile because you won't find one. As headsets go, the Yealink BH71 is a true Unicorn.
