When I’m not visiting clients, I usually work from home, and one of the most critical tools I rely on include my iMac Pro, MacBook, iPhone, Internet connection, and headset. I’m on the phone a lot, so a high-quality headset is crucial for me. I have tried dozens of headset over the years, both wired and wireless but ultimately found an almost perfect one in the Plantronics Savi W745 Wireless Headset.

From the manufacturer: Plantronics Savi 745 lets you easily manage and switch between PC, desk phone, and even mobile calls up to 350 feet from your desk–all from a single wireless headset. Enjoy the comfort of this lightweight DECT headset and experience unlimited talk time with a swappable battery. You can wear the Savi 745 three different ways: over-the-ear, over-the-head, or behind-the-head to suit your personal style.

My requirements

No cables

I want to be able to move around my office without being tethered to my desk. Besides, wired headsets can often only be connected to a single device at a time. The Plantronics Savi supports multiple devices!

Multiple device support

I use various channels to communicate with clients, co-workers, and vendors, including:

  • Mac: FaceTime, Skype, Comcast Softphone (replaced my desk phone a couple of months ago), Webex, GoToMeeting
  • iPhone: FaceTime, Phone
  • Desk phone (was replaced by Softphone)

So I needed a solution that, ideally, could be connected to all three communications channels at the same time. The Plantronics Savi fits that bill. Its base station can be wired to my Mac (via USB) as well as to a desk phone. Additionally, it can be connected via Bluetooth to my iPhone. Three buttons on top of the base station allow you to switch communication channels on-the-fly.

Excellent audio quality
