Wireless

Wireless microphones are ideal for those who do not wish to be tethered directly to a computer; available in headset or handheld variations.

The Freedom to Roam with Wireless Microphones

Wireless technology is a sound investment for those who either prefer not to be tethered to a PC or those who require freedom of movement (i.e. those in a wheelchair). Dragon NaturallySpeaking &  Dragon Medical Practice Edition recognition accuracy with a wireless is highest with a Sennheiser DW, and it is quite comparable to a wired solution.

Sennheiser MB Pro UC Low Profile Series

Sennheiser MB Pro Series

While MB (Mobile Business) Pro UC are premium Bluetooth® headsets for Unified Communication professionals who demand wireless communication freedom, brilliant sound quality, and exceptional wearing comfort, they work brilliantly with Dragon speech recognition software.

The Low Profile USB receiver makes the MB Pro UC series ideal for tablet computers such as the Microsoft Surface Pro. Even the cable from the charging stand can be removed for a more portable option. Alternatively, a short USB cable can be used to charge the wireless headset directly from the computer or an adapter with a USB plug.

As an added bonus, this remarkable wireless headset can be used with Bluetooth enabled mobile phones and desk phones.

The MB Pro is a Bluetooth headset, not a DECT headset such as the SD Pro. The SD Pro is still the optimal choice for stationary desk top wireless use.

Features of all Models

  • Sennheiser High-Definition Sound – MB Pro headsets are equipped with legendary Sennheiser HD sound to ensure a clearer and more natural audio experience.
  • Sound-Enhancement Profiles – MB Pro automatically adapts and optimizes sound for both communications and multimedia/music purpose.
  • Sennheiser Voice Clarity – Ultra-noise microphone filters out background noise for perfect speech transmission in busy and noisy environments.
  • Extended Talk Time and Range – Up to 15 hours’ call time and freedom to move up to 25 meters from source, depending on device and environment.
  • Exceptional Wearing Comfort – MB Pro comes with large leatherette ear-pads for a perfect fit and all-day wearing comfort.

I use the SD Office here at our office. The main reason being that it was the only one available at the time. I love the light weight clip on ear mode of the headset. In a quiet environment the unit works quite well. Although I find if you leave the mic active for a period of time the computer will raise the gain on the microphone to a point where it will start to pick up quieter noises (like the sound of keyboard typing and the occasional chair squeak). I typically use the microphone in a "press to talk" mode (mic on when using Dragon, otherwise mic is off). In my work environment, this is normally the only way I can get anything done as I am pulled in many directions at once. If there is a radio, colleague talking, fan or AC unit, the quality can suffer greatly. It is still usable for the phone, but the sound signature has changed and Dragon can have a difficult time with transcribing.

With the SD Pro version of the solution, the boom microphone pretty much eliminates the extraneous noise issues. This is at the expense of having a heavier headband with microphone directly in front of your mouth. You lose comfort flexibility but gain in audio quality. I should say that the reduced noise cancellation abilities of the SD Office is not really its fault. The mic sits on the side of your face instead of directly in front. This means that the logic cannot tell exactly what is voice and what his background noise. But, with the shorter headset with fixed boom option of the SD Office, the headset variant can be significantly more stable than the ear hook variant.

In the end, it really comes down to user comfort & environmental noise levels. If you have a user that is going to use the headband version then a SD Pro with its improved noise cancellation should be considered. If you have a user that hates headsets, then the SD Office might be the one to go with.

I should mention that all three of the models use the same base. You can quickly and easily pair the headset to the base. Although, it is recommended that you create a new Dragon profile for the different headsets.
