The latest edition to award winning Jabra Speak Series provides an immersive call and sound experience for business leaders and C-level executives with high mobility.
Manila – April 19, 2017. Jabra, the leader in the development of professional communications and sound solutions, today announced the local availability of the Jabra Speak 710. The latest addition to the award winning Jabra Speak series, the Speak 710 is a premium, portable speakerphone designed both for professional and personal usage, and ensures great sound for conference calls and music. The Jabra Speak 710 is a high-end personal device providing premium HiFi grade audio and superior Unified Communication experience.
Perfect For Business Communication
The Jabra Speak 710 is the perfect partner for business leaders and C-level executives. This highly mobile target group works on average almost 58 hours a week, of which they spend nearly 2.5 hours in meetings every day. Besides having a highly collaborative job, they also travel a lot – with 86 per cent spending up to ten days per month on the road1.
To accommodate their lifestyle, business leaders and C-level executives require solutions that support mobility, collaboration, connectivity and flexibility. As they mainly work in a distributed team in different time zones, they need extended collaboration and mobility to enable conference calls whether they are on the road, in the office, at home or in a hotel. About 40 percent of business leaders use speakerphones for conference calls once or twice a week, while 21 percent will use them three to five times in a week2. However, far too often, audiences experience a major impact on the effectiveness of calls3. For a business group that spends a large amount of time on the phone and in meetings, this has serious effect on productivity.
“We at Jabra aspire to make life sound better for our users,” says Wayne Lee, Product Management and Alliances Manager, APAC.
The Jabra Speak 710 continues the lineage of our award winning Speak series that offer intelligent business sound solutions. These devices empower users to be even more productive, by helping users concentrate more, communicate and collaborate better, and make conversation easier. We do this by helping them block out noise while delivering crystal-clear sound, Lee adds.
First Professional and Personal Conferencing Device
The Jabra Speak 710 is the first truly professional and personal conferencing device, boasting an Omni-directional microphone with 360-degree pick-up for up to six ‘in room’ attendees, 15 hours of battery life and a HiFi grade speaker for crystal clear conversation and music.
The Jabra Speak 710 builds upon the success of the Speak Series, which has sold over 1 million units worldwide delivering an audio performance twice as powerful as its predecessor. It also adds an incredible smart feature enabling two units to be wirelessly linked together with the touch of a finger. Pair two devices and create an immersive sound or expand the room coverage from six to twelve attendees.
Compact design, Maximum portability
Research shows a third of conference calls are delayed due to setup issues with connections and speaker phones, 15 per cent of meeting time is spent on ‘getting started’, and one of the most common frustrations is poor sound quality4.
With its simple plug-and-play setup, the Jabra Speak 710 guarantees a quick and easy-to-use speakerphone experience with premium audio to offices and small conference rooms. It works with all types of smart devices and seamlessly integrates with all Unified Communications platforms eliminating the need for dial pad solutions—and challenging the traditional hardware approach to conference calling.
With more power than ever before, the Jabra Speak 710 Series comes in a small, compact design, with an integrated folding stand for extra flexibility. Connect to a smart device or laptop in seconds via USB or Bluetooth via the enclosed dongle. This provides a 30-meter range for laptops or 10 meter for smartphones.
Powerful music speaker
Effortlessly switching between music and calls, the Speak 710 also transforms into a powerful music speaker. Simply connect to an online music streaming service or music library on the mobile device.
“The Jabra Speak 710 is the perfect tool for everyone who cannot afford to have unreliable and uncomfortable collaboration tools. Offering extended mobility combined with an immersive audio and true music experience, this makes it the exclusive business partner and music companion for any business leader and C-level executive who values productivity and efficiency,” states Lee.
