The future of audio in SDW 5000 business headsets
The SDW 5000 Series features Super Wideband Audio, a new sound standard for headset communication, delivering brilliantly lifelike calls with a significantly more natural, richer sound image as well as great Sennheiser sound when listening to music. Apart from crystal clear speech quality the Sennheiser SDW 5000 Series' two microphone noise-cancelling system helps to filter out background noise and keeps communication free from disturbance. The own-voice-detector helps suppress subtler distractions in between wordings to further enhance the call experience. In addition, the high density wideband mode ensures premium sound quality in noisy environments with multiple headsets in use at the same time.
One answer for various needs and users
Comprising of a sleek stylish base station and a headset offering a choice of 3 wearing styles – ear hook, headband and neckband – the new SDW 5000 Series provides incredible connectivity and headset flexibility. As well as offering advanced features such as merging/unmerging calls all SDW 5000 headsets are UC optimized and certified for Skype for Business. Triple-connectivity allows the base station to connect with PCs and desk phones as well as mobile phones and tablets via the Bluetooth dongle.
In addition to the SDW 5000 Series headsets, the base station can also be connected to other wired and Bluetooth Sennheiser headsets or a speakerphone (via the USB port). This superior level of flexibility ensures that the SDW 5000 Series can be adapted to meet a vast range of diverse office and user needs.
Peace of mind with enhanced security and effortless device management
Sennheiser's SDW 5000 Series is one of the most secure solutions of its type available today: It uses advanced security protocols to ensure that business conversation remains confidential, offering features including Protected Pairing, 128bit authentication keys and DECT Security certification. In addition, the USB port, call merging and multiple headset conferencing can be disabled as needed in high security environments.
For effortless, centralized device management that can save IT managers valuable time and resources, Sennheiser has developed HeadSetup™ Pro Manager. The cloud-based IT management solution allows tracking, monitoring, updating and configuring settings on SDW 5000 and other Sennheiser devices from one single, easy to use dashboard at anytime, anywhere.
Smart features for increased productivity
With an array of smart features, SDW 5000 delivers a leap forward in usability, ensuring a smooth collaboration and communication experience for increased productivity. Apart from offering advanced call controls via the base station, the headsets' built-in motion sensor enables automatic control of calls, i.e. answering calls by simply picking up the headset from the desk. In addition, the headset system helps make everyday interactions simpler by featuring a busy light on the headset as well as an optional external busy-light to ensure colleagues are aware of an ongoing call, automatically synchronizing the status with the Skype for Business application.
