Sennheiser has launched the Century series of wired headsets. Built to withstand the rigours of the toughest contact centre or office, the Century series is designed for quality-conscious enterprises requiring high definition speech clarity and hearing intelligibility, durability and all-day wearing comfort.
The new Century series is available in single-sided and double-sided configurations. There are models designed specifically for use with desk phones; for USB connection optimised for unified communication solutions and softphones; and optimised for Microsoft Lync with USB connection.
The Century series comes with large leatherette ear-pads and unibody headband construction to provide a comfortable user experience for all-day wearing in the most demanding contact centre or office environments. The use of high quality materials such as stainless steel hinges, brushed aluminium parts and Kevlar® cables ensures maximum durability and low total cost of ownership.
All models feature Sennheiser ultra noise-cancelling microphones to filter out background noise for perfect wideband communications in busy and noisy environments, improving speech intelligibility. Hearing experience is enhanced with top grade neodymium speakers providing outstanding high definition audio quality.
An important health and safety feature of the Century series is Sennheiser’s patented ActiveGard™ technology. ActiveGard technology detects unsafe audio levels and compresses the signal within milliseconds. ActiveGard doesn’t just reduce, but rather removes dangerous energy from an acoustic burst, eliminating the distortion from an excessive incoming signal and keeping the volume of a sound peak at a safe and comfortable level to protect the users hearing.
For Sennheiser UK Telecoms, Jane Craven, Director of Sales stated, “With the launch of the Century series we offer customers a premium quality headset that is designed for long hours of usage, providing supreme wearing comfort with extreme durability. This iconic design combines high grade materials and Sennheiser engineering craftsmanship. The flexible choice of wearing styles and connectivity options, including Microsoft Lync optimisation, will ensure that the Century series is a hit with desk-oriented users that require convenient functionality and outstanding build quality.”
