Whether you are in a busy office environment or working remotely, having the proper gear is important for ensuring that you do your job effectively and comfortably. That is why Grandstream’s GUV series of USB headsets are a great addition to a worker’s arsenal, especially for those spending a lot of time in voice communications with colleagues, partners or customers.
GUV series headsets
Designed for remote workers, contact centers and other busy environments, the GUV3000 and GUV3005 USB headsets pair with laptops, computers, IP phones, and other devices to convey an unsurpassed audio quality. These USB headsets feature a noise-canceling microphone while providing crisp HD audio and all-day comfort. The GUV series offers peace of mind by being compatible with all major third-party communication platforms, apps, and softphones.
More and more employees are being empowered to work from anywhere with the use of collaboration software, online tools, and communication platforms that can be leveraged over the internet. This is resulting in an increasingly distributed workforce, where call center agents can respond to customer needs, receptionists can greet customers and route calls, and office employees can interact with their colleagues and partners, all from the comfort of their own homes…or anywhere else!
With sounds from children, pets, other family members, and so on, home environments can introduce disturbances that are not present in a more traditional workplace. The GUV series of headsets are ideal for these conditions because of the noise-canceling microphone that minimizes background sound, in addition to delivering high-quality audio. This, in conjunction with the comfort they bring during prolonged use, are perfect for all positions with high volumes of telephone calls as well as for those that take part in long online meetings.
In particular, these headsets are perfect for call center agents, teachers, professors, remote receptionists, medical hotline agents, and remote office workers of all types.
Grandstream CEO David Li is quoted as saying, “The new GUV series of USB Headsets provides an important addition to our product line to accommodate the critical need for personal collaboration devices around the world. As business, education, and all other sectors adjust to remote operations, they need new tools to keep remote workers, students, teachers, and professionals productive and collaborating. The GUV series USB headsets were designed to address that need by providing a powerful, comfortable audio experience that enhances remote collaboration. We are thrilled to release the GUV series and are excited about the opportunities they provide for Grandstream and our partners across the globe.”
