SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 5, 2012 / -- Building on its legacy audio reputation, ClearOne today announced it has broadened its popular line of Unified Communications products with the introduction of its first UC headsets. Five new models, designed to meet varying price and performance needs in enterprises, call centers and SOHO, deliver hands-free audio for personal conferencing with privacy. The new headsets, marketed under ClearOne's CHAT(R) brand, are the most affordable enterprise-grade USB headsets on the market.

"The addition of the CHAT headsets into our expanding UC product line now makes ClearOne the only manufacturer offering a complete suite of hands-free audio solutions from the open-office or cubicle environment to the executive office, boardroom or auditorium," said Bala Krishnamoorthy, Director, Product Line Management for UC and Telephony. "The CHAT headsets round out our UC product portfolio which already includes the award-winning CHAT speakerphones, the INTERACT(R)-AT installed audio systems and the COLLABORATE(TM) all-in-one video conferencing and collaboration system."

Each CHAT headset model features crystal-clear audio technology with noise cancellation and acoustic shock protection that prevents volume spikes and high-pitched tones. "We've incorporated elements of ClearOne's HDConference(TM) audio technology into these sleek, versatile headsets that will plug-and-play without the need of additional software or drivers," Krishnamoorthy said. All models feature an intuitive design with in-line controller and are compatible with a wide array of popular UC applications and softphones, including those from Avaya, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Skype and others.

The Professional CHAT 30D (dual) and CHAT 30M (mono) are full-featured professional-grade headsets combining executive style and comfort with ClearOne's crystal-clear audio technology. Each model features a fully adjustable, pivoting boom microphone that will rotate up and away for coffee breaks or other pauses. These high-end models showcase first-class looks in an ergonomic, attractive design. 

The Premium CHAT 20D and CHAT 20M deliver ultimate comfort, durability and clarity in a lightweight design. These commercial-grade headsets use specially-designed padded speakers to provide clear, high-quality sound and a comfortable over-the-ear fit for extended use.

The Classic CHAT 10D UC headset is ideal for applications where lowest-cost, yet high performance is desired.
