Device Spotlight: Yealink WH67 UC Workstation
I recently found myself with a need to replace the off-brand bluetooth headset I had been using for the last year. It served me well for the frequent calls and meetings I attend, reliable until its last call when the earphone snapped off where it joined the headband. Cheap plastic.
In all honsety, I was waiting for this day because my eye was on a family of products from Yealink – a rising leader in Microsoft Teams certified audio and video communication devices. After some consideration, I opted for the WH67 Wireless Convertable Headset and the acompanying wireless charging stand. Now a few weeks into use, I thought I’d introduce this product and share some of my favorite features.
1. Easy Setup
The setup for this device could not have been easier. Out of the box, I simply connected the power supply and plugged the USB cable into my computer. Almost instantly, the all-in-one workstation connected with Teams and was ready to use. No need to configure device settings in teams – it just worked.
These devices can be managed centrally in the Teams Admin center or locally with the proprietary Yealink USB Connect software.
2. Crystal Clear Audio
Whether I’m using my earpiece or the speakerphone, the clarity of sound on both ends of the line is unbeatable. Yealink’s Acoustic Sheild Technology differentiates background noise from your voice and blocks out other noises around you.
Not only is the audio clear, but the wireless range I have with the earpiece is phenomenal. I can safely travel from desk to coffee pot without skipping a beat.
3. Minimal Desktop Footprint
This one goes beyond the amount of space it takes on your desk – which is very little, but let’s talk about ridding yourself of wires.
With the optional Wireless Charging Stand, I was able to do away with my cell phone charging cord and the cord I used to charge my old headset. Yes, the workstation has it’s own cords (two), but they tuck away nicely and are out of sight. No more tangled messes.
BONUS: the WH67 Workstation has a built in 2 port USB hub for any devices you might need to connect.
The WH67 has four different wearing styles to match your preference. I currently use the earhook and eartip combo, but the headset comes with over-the-head headband and around-the-neck neckband accessories. Switching between styles is simple and I have found the in-ear eartips to be incredibly comfortable.
I also enjoy the flexibility of use. It’s simple to switch between speakerphone and earpiece, and I have paired my cellphone with the workstation to seamlessly take and make calls from Teams and my mobile with one earpiece.
Teams calling is great, but I do appreciate having a keypad to dial phone numbers without having to switch to the app and open the calls tab. The WH67’s 4-inch multitouch display provides a dial pad and the convenient Teams Button to instantly surface your teams app with one touch.
