Sennheiser headsets get certification for Amazon Chime

Sennheiser has announced that two of its headsets have been certified for Amazon Chime. It’s the SC 165 USB and D10 USB, says UC Today. The company became a member of the AWS Partner Network in March this year.

Amazon Chime is a real-time unified communications (UC) solution provided by Amazon. The solution aims to make meetings more efficient and easier to conduct by delivering high quality video and audio both inside and outside the organization with a single application. Amazon Chime uses the AWS system, so IT teams within the organization don’t have to worry about managing and deploying complicated UC infrastructures.

Theis Mork, vice president of Product Management for Enterprise Solutions at Sennheiser, states that the integration between the headsets and Amazon Chime enables them to offer better experiences to customers, regardless of the workforce they work in.


Sennheiser’s two USB headsets are the first two to be certified as interoperable with Amazon Chime. The SC 165 USB headset is designed to fit the lifestyle of the mobile worker, who is constantly on the move and wants to be able to work from anywhere. The corded headset comes with good audio quality, regardless of whether the device is used for multimedia, music or communication.

The second certified headset for Amazon Chime, the D10 USB, is designed for the professional working in the traditional office environment. The device works with desktop headphones and softphones as well as with PCs. The D10 should also provide wireless options for people who want more flexibility to move around the office. In addition, the headset has good audio quality with DECT reliability.

Sid Rao, general manager of Amazon Chime, states that the team is looking forward to seeing more Sennheiser products become compatible with Chime. According to him, Sennheiser users can now also combine the “exceptional headset features” with Amazon Chime UC features, allowing them to experience “more efficiency and productivity” than before.
