Sennheiser introduces a pair of new headset models targeted toward the burgeoning sphere of VoIP (voice over internet protocol) communications.
While the VoIP boom is bringing real convenience and low/no-cost value to global telephony, VoIP voice quality, though potentially very good, is often seriously compromised by the â€œgiveawayâ€? headsets provided with most internet-telephony interfaces. Bridging this gap are Sennheiserâ€™s new PC 20 and PC 30 headsets. Supremely lightweight and comfortable for the longâ€”often very longâ€”conversations that internet telephony encourages, the new headsets feature accurate, extended-response transducers and Sennheiserâ€™s exceptional noise-canceling microphone design, which effectively filters out ambient noise, to maximize speech-intelligibility and overall sound quality at both ends.
The PC 20 is a single-speaker monaural headset, while the PC 30 is a dual-transducer stereo model capable of delivering high-quality sound equally suitable for use in PC gaming and multimedia use as well as telephony. Both feature the same wide-range playback transducer, and an ultralight, non-intrusive microphone boom that can be shifted to left- or right-side placement according to user preference. With comfortable, ergonomic earcushions, and fully adjustable mic-booms and headbands that promote long-term comfort for virtually any wearer, the PC 20 and PC 30 are an outstanding choice for VoIP communications.
Synonymous with Sennheiserâ€™s PC 20 and PC 30 design is robust reliability. Headbands and earcups are fashioned of virtually indestructible polymer materials, and feature a 10 foot (3-meter), Kevlarâ„¢ reinforced interconnect cable (able to reach even rear-panel connections on floor-mounted PCs) that will remain reliable and trouble-free over years of heavy use.
The Sennheiser PC 20 and PC 30 desktop headsets will be available January 2006, at Sennheiserâ€™s suggested retail price of $24.95 and $29.95, respectively.
