Wireless Headsets

Wireless headset systems that work with your corded office phone

Sennheiser OfficeRunner Wireless Headset

This has got to be the best wireless headset ever made. I personally use this exact one in my office, at home and would recommend this headset to anyone seeking the highest quality headset on the market today.

The OfficeRunner is our most popular, highest-rated and bestselling headset. With the OfficeRunner, you’ll be able to talk comfortably up to 400 feet away from your phone. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your voice is coming through clearly to your callers thanks to the built-in noise-canceling microphone.

The OfficeRunner is backed by our compatibility guarantee. This headset works with 98% of all corded office phones. Also, this is our only wireless headset that includes a 3-year warranty. The OfficeRunner is built to last, and we’ll stand by it every step of the way. And as always, you’re covered by our FREE lifetime product support.

Please note: If you are using this headset with your Polycom phone you also need to purchase the Sennheiser 504104 Phone Adapter to connect the OfficeRunner to your desktop phone.

Do Not Purchase Batteries unless Instructed to by a Reynwood Technician.

Please note: If you are using this headset with your CISCO 8861 phone you also need to purchase the Sennheiser 504103 Phone Adapter to connect the OfficeRunner to your desktop phone.

Do Not Purchase Batteries unless Instructed to by a Reynwood Technician.

Plantronics CS510 Wireless Headset Basic Bundle

The CS510 has all of the great features that have been standard in the CS Series for years. The talk time is up to 9 hours, the improved wireless range is up to 350 feet, it comes standard with DECT technology to eliminate wireless interference and ensure privacy and it looks pretty slick. Add the HL10 handset lifter (included with the Professional Bundle) and you’ve got full wireless freedom to answer and end calls up to 350 feet from your desk. Plus, for the first time in the CS Series history, the CS510 offers the ability to pair multiple CS Series or Savi headsets to a single base for conference calls.

Throw in a new and improved design that sure to impress, and there’s no question that the CS510 is going to be a must-have for die hard Plantronics headset users.

Please note: If you are using this headset with your Polycom phone you also need to purchase the Hook Switch Adapter to connect it to your Polycom phone.

Plantronics CS540 Wireless Headset Basic Bundle

Plantronics continues the tradition of its CS line of wireless headsets with the CS540 convertible wireless headset. While this headset is similar to the long standing CS55, it’s quite different in design and function.

The CS540 offers a new and improved range of up to 350 feet. While still not the longest available range in wireless headsets, it’s definitely a nice increase over the 300 foot CS50. As with all wireless headsets, this wireless range offers the ability to be up and about, grabbing files or coffee, or even stepping outside, all while staying on the phone and working 100% hands-free. Throw in the HL10 handset lifter (included in the Professional Bundle) and you can even answer and end calls while away from your phone.

Please note: This is a bundle and includes the hookswitch needed to work with your Polycom phone.

Corded Headsets

Corded headsets that work with your corded office phone.

Plantronics HW251N SupraPlus Wideband Headset

A corded headset is perfect for both contact center and office workers who remain by their telephone and the Plantronics SupraPlus is our recommendation. These headsets deliver outstanding all day, every day comfort and reliability.

This headset takes advantage of the latest VoIP technologies and features wideband receivers to deliver improved speech clarity and life-like fidelity, helping to decrease listening fatigue. The light flexible cable and comfortable headband design, as well as the bendable noise-canceling microphone boom, work to enhance audio quality and the user experience.

The SupraPlus is available in both monaural (one ear) and binaural (both ears) styles.

Monaural allows you hear the conversation and what’s going on around you while binaural helps to cut out distracting background noises.

Please note: If you are using this headset with your Polycom phone you also need to purchase the Plantronics Polaris Cable to connect the SupraPlus to your desk phone.

Wireless Bluetooth Headsets

Bluetooth headsets that work great when you are on the move and need awesome clarity on your cell phone.

VXi BlueParrott Bluetooth Headset with Micro USB Charging (B250-XTS)

This is the bad-boy of bluetooth headsets. Truckers use them to cruise down the road with windows open — and to the person on the other end — it sounds like a quiet office.

If you’re single, note you aren’t going to look cool wearing this beast.

But you’ll soon be loving the benefits: I’ve given a webinar in an airport, with flight announcements blaring in the background, and no one noticed.

More importantly, I’ve taken client calls from all over the world, in restaurants, while walking home from the gym, and driving to and from the office every day. Every time I gave my clients exactly what they deserved: a crystal clear channel of communication and distraction-free conversation.

Like I said earlier, you may look a little goofy, but you will be giving crystal clear pitches and closing more business because there will be no distractions.

  • Be heard clearly with the industry’s best noise canceling (95%).
  • Compatible with Bluetooth cell phones and computers.
  • Talk for 20+ hours and charge via micro USB.

Business Productivity

Other business enhancing products recommended by Rich.

I listen to Audiobooks every day during my commute. It’s a perfect way to get some personal development time in each and every day.

Using Amazon Prime, we get free two day shipping and awesome prices on all sorts of business supplies.

When I do have some down time, reading is always a great way to unwind. But carrying books is sooo yesterday.  I love to read books on my iPad.  The Kindle app is a perfect compliment.

This journal is the bomb.  I plan out my year in December and then use this journal to break it down into four 13 week segments with shorter term goals that become easier to achieve.  This journal then breaks each goal down into weeks and then days.  A perfect way to accomplish more each and every day.
