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.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

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.
