I have always used Plantronics .. not because Jabra are bad ... just because I have never had a reason to move away from Plantronics.  There are "approved" and non approved .. but all seem to work.  You only run in to issues if you want support to troubleshoot noise issues.

I tend to stay away from the bottom end of the range due to lesser quality noise cancellation.

Whatever one you choose will work perfectly well.

Yeah .. I played with an older version of this.  It worked well.  Investigate how easy it is to purchase new "cushions" for the ear pieces as they did crack and got uncomfortable after a while.

3 Use Cases for Connected Systems

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

If you are using this as a true softphone device then I would say no.  However .. if you are thinking about using the added functionality then it may be worth it. (DSP, Bluetooth capability, auto answer etc)

You won't go wrong with either ... once you know what you want to do with it.  If you want a true softphone device .. stay on the simpler end.

Using with Communicator/Softphone .. don't spend the extra .. out of the two options above .. go with the Jabra.
