I do a lot of conference calls every day. So much so that I am almost known as the “telephone operator” at home. Actually Microsoft Lync (paired with Microsoft Exchange and Communicator) is a great piece of office productivity software. You can make lots of conference calls and even do a lot of local calls or overseas calls using VoIP. In addition, there are even now versions of Lync released on iPhone and Android. Unbelievable :)
Anyway, a good headset is needed for good comfort calls especially if your calls are very long (like mine… people just loved to talk non stop.. sigh). I started with normal audio headsets and then there were ones given to me like USB headsets.
This one that I am unboxing today is even more amazing. The Plantronics Savi W440A-M Microsoft Lync Headset is WIRELESS :) Great.. I can go to the toilet and do my stuff all while pretending to be interested in how the weather is on the other side of earth, or how many kids the other person have or how many vacations they are going to do etc. Nice… wireless is good…
No frills packaging as I believe it is a bulk purchase:
Opening up, I am impressed and confused and shocked :)
A manual is always useful..
Look at the number of different types of headset wearing style ! For different people and their different taste.. amazing !
And to cater to that, there is even a fit kit with extra ear loops, ear tips and foam sleeves…. WOW…
The actual head set with the battery
A box in case you need go travelling..
Two different types of charger.. wall charger (that comes with different plug sizes that you can use depending on where you are) and of course a USB charger:
And of course, you need a USB adaptor on your laptop/PC side so that the headset can communicate wirelessly to the PC/laptop:

Would you get one for yourself ? :)
