Whether people are working from home, splitting their time across remote and office-based working, or finally getting back to business travel and client visiting, they’re going to be working flexibly in other ways too: multitasking, hot-desking, and embracing change. 40% of flexible workers talk on the phone while moving around, and being tied down via cables or limited to quiet environments is no longer an acceptable restriction. The knowledge worker of the new normality demands conference calling and high-quality multimedia listening as part of the standard feature set too.
As organisations refine their forthcoming hybrid strategies for enabling future business continuity and resilience in a changed world, flexibility seems like the one word we keep hearing – flexibility on both sides, and readiness for change at a moment’s notice.
Audio needs to get flexible
The new ADAPT 200 premium cordless headset from EPOS is designed to meet the needs of the 2021 knowledge-worker, who could be transitioning between workspaces and devices throughout the day, and needs a mobile and commute-friendly audio solution which adapts to different environments.
Those environments will offer different and changeable ambient noise, and this has often been a challenge for workers in shared spaces, as well as those on the move. Presets for office noise don’t adapt well to travel or home-based environments, and tools designed for use out and about (like personal mobile phones) don’t integrate as smoothly with office UCC solutions.
This means a lack of flexibility, and the complex frustrations of not being able to hear and speak to colleagues and customers with the clarity needed. Work-from-anywhere policies sound great in theory, but they must be supported with appropriate hardware as well as software. EPOS’ famous Voice(™) technology creates a natural listening experience which also avoids acoustic shock through patented ActiveGuard(™) protection when moving from one auditory environment to another. Smart noise limiting can even be centrally administered according to European and Australian standards via EPOS Connect
Being MS Teams certified and UC optimised, the new headset is ready to go – boosting productivity and facilitating a seamless user experience immediately. A dedicated button lets you jump straight into Teams meetings, and a 27 hour battery life won’t let you down however long the conversation lasts. You can even connect to two Bluetooth enabled devices simultaneously, such as your laptop and your mobile phone, enabling frictionless switching between them without missing a beat.
The total user experience isn’t just about software though, so being stylish to look at, compact to carry, and extremely comfortable, all play a part in choosing a go-to headset. Created with thick, soft, on-ear padding, the ADAPT 200 headset is designed for true all day use, syncing across multiple devices flawlessly and supporting a dynamic working style – whether a user is taking back-to-back customer support incoming calls throughout a shift, or simply needing to collaborate with remote and hybrid colleagues in the new normality. When you need to only listen for a while, the boom arm folds discreetly into the adjustable headset.
However much we have all grown accustomed to video-on-demand during the remote revolution, the value of quality audio communication can never be overstated, and for truly flexible work on the go, voice reigns supreme. You can always turn off the webcam, but never the sound.
Ensuring a quality experience for all participants on the call is therefore a non-optional essential, and the ADAPT 200 range is a timely addition to the EPOS portfolio at this pivotal moment in the present future of work.
