Introducing the Blackwire 8225 premium corded headset. This new addition to our family features acoustic excellence from Poly — hybrid active-noise cancelling (ANC) and our signature Acoustic Fence noise cancelling technology to ensure an exceptional audio experience for both ends of the call.

Fancy words. Let's compile them:

There is a lot going on in the market right now. All the vendors are certifying their headsets for Microsoft Teams, which guarantees a certain audio quality and also requires a dedicated Teams button and a status LED for incoming messages. Add an indicator that you are currently in a call and you are good to go.

Generally speaking, a USB-wired headset gives you better sound, but I still prefer the convenience of a Bluetooth connection.

Can you spot what's wrong with this photo? It should show an R instead of an L.

And the wire looks pretty red to me, for a Blackwire names device :-)

The beam is twisted towards the back of the head. Can tilt both ways if you want it on the left ear, but then the L makes only sense to indicate the default orientation. Photo-fail.

Thanks, Volker, for your updates on headsets, I am following closely. Especially the 'outbound' ANC is usually not mentioned / advertised or simply does not work as expected.

Regarding the picture - thats the new cool, like wearing a basecap backwards was. Wearing your mic-boom backwards. On your red-wired Blackwire ;)
