Conference phones, otherwise known as speakerphones, come in all sizes and shapes. Some are wired, while others are wireless.
The Jabra Speak 710 is a bit unique in that it’s a wireless device, which in and of itself, doesn’t make it unique in any way. What does though is the fact that you can pair up a second wireless speakerphone allowing the two to work in tandem.
What’s the advantage of this? The advantage is you get:
- Two speakers rather than one - better sound
- Two microphones rather than one - more microphone coverage 3. Wireless freedom to move the speakerphones where you like.
In order to take advantage of this dual wireless speakerphone setup, you need to purchase two of the Jabra Speak 710’s. Once you do this, you’ll need to pair up the second speakerphone to the main one.
That’s what this blog is all about. I’ll give you a step by step instruction on how to do this quick and easy. Following these steps will have both of your speakerphones up and running together in a matter of minutes.
Before I get started, I did want to let you know that I made a video on this very subject. If you’d prefer to watch the video over reading this blog, I’ve included it immediately below. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words,or at least, seeing how things are done can sometimes be easier to understand.
Ok, so you’ve purchased two of the Jabra Speak 710’s for your Zoom meetings, Softphone calls, or other applications, now what? Follow the simple steps below and as quick as you can say I love my Jabra Speak 710, you’ll be communicating like a pro.
Charge the batteries in both units. It’s always good to start out with fully charged batteries.
Plug the USB Dongle into the USB port on your computer. Only one because both units come with a USB Dongle. This establishes the unit connected to the Dongle as the main unit that the second Speak 710 will be connected to.
Make sure that both units are powered up
The unit connected to the Dongle should have a blue, Bluetooth light lit up. On this main unt locate the icon that looks like two circles. Press and hold this button down until you hear an audible instructing you to pair up the second unit.
At this time you should see a mini light show of small LEDs moving in a circular direction. Sunglasses are acceptable if you’re feeling “groovy” right about now.
Repeat the process of pressing the double circle button until you hear another audible and see the LEDs light up on this second unit. At this time you should see the LEDs illuminated on both units. Dancing is permitted especially if your lights have been turned down.
At this time you will see the double circle icon on both units turn yellow. This confirms that both units are paired up and ready to go. Time to remove the sunglasses and turn the lights back on. Time to get to work.
Have fun, and enjoy!
The Jabra Speak 710 is a very good conference phone with some excellent features and sound quality. It’s unique ability to pair up two units working together gives you sound on both ends that’s hard to beat.
Also, having the ability to move the speakerphones around to where they’re needed is a real plus. I’m a big fan of this product and if you end up purchasing one, or more, I hope you become as big of a fan as I am.
