Cisco has announced its own headsets with the Cisco Headset 500 Series. This is a selection of mobile headsets, specially designed to avoid distractions in a business environment. That’s what UC Today reports.

The headsets are specifically designed to connect people to the benefits of the Cisco network. All headsets come with the option to customize the audio settings. The headphones themselves are designed for best performance with Cisco soft clients, infrastructure and devices.

There are several options available. One of these is the 530 Series, which are designed to support call center employees with features such as noise reduction, good audio quality, and a quick hanging option. The 560 series are wireless DECT models that use encryption for end-to-end security. The headsets come with an LED light on the earcup to show that the user is on the phone. There is also an option to choose between a base station with a single source, or a multi-base station.

The 520 Series includes two wired models that allow employees to take calls from laptops, mobile devices and IP phones. The 521 and 522 variants come with a lightweight design, a USB adapter or a headphone jack, and good sound.


Setting up the headphones should be simple. They are plugged into a Cisco IP Phone 8800 series phone, after which a set-up process appears. Here it is also possible to adjust the audio settings and set the microphone boost correctly.

The company has also combined its range of headsets with a natural management system for the IT team via Cisco Unified Communications Manager. This platform allows system administrators to monitor the inventory of headsets, perform firmware upgrades and provide diagnostics from the same panel they use to manage the UC infrastructure. No additional software is required.
