Jabra Speak 510 - Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Do you take a lot of conference calls?

Then, you know the pain of trying to get the audio working almost every time. 99% of conference calls start with one party asking another whether they can hear them. Half the time there's no sound, and the other half the microphones don't work.
If you're alone you might be able to use a headset. But what if there's a group?

Isn't there an easy way to get audio to work on a conf. call?

That's where the Jabra Speak 510 comes in.

It's a portable speaker and a microphone bundled together into a compact design.

It's 360 degrees microphone and the superb speaker can effectively cover a medium sized meeting room. The sound is crystal clear, and the microphone can pick up the sound of a person speaking from across the room.

It works with your PC, Tablet, or Smartphone. You can connect to it using the built-in USB cable, via Bluetooth, or (if all else fails) via the 3.5mm audio jack. I've never has any connectivity issues with it (so, I've never used the 3.5mm jack on mine).

It's simply plug-and-play. I've tested it on Windows, Linux (Ubuntu and Mint), and Mac OS for USB, and both Android and iPhone for Bluetooth, and it worked every time. It simply show up as a new audio device, you just need to select it.

I've tested it with Google Hangouts, Skype, and Polycom for conference calls, and it simply works.

It charges from the same built-in USB cable. It gives about 15 hours of talk time from one charge. And, you can use it while it's charging also.
It comes with a nice carrying case to take it with you anywhere.

Simply put, it's a life-saver for conf. calls.

Oh, and it's not just for conference calls. It's pretty good for music playback also.
