Internet Telephony Benefits From Sennheiser Quality
Old Lyme, Connecticut, Januaary 6, 2006 — Sennheiser Electronic Corporation (SEC), the U.S. wholly-owned subsidiary of the German company long known for its standard-setting headphones and microphones, introduces a pair of new headset models targeted toward the burgeoning sphere of VoIP (voice over internet protocol) communications.
While the VoIP boom is bringing real convenience and low/no-cost value to global telephony, VoIP voice quality, though potentially very good, is often seriously compromised by the “giveaway” headsets provided with most internet-telephony interfaces. Bridging this gap are Sennheiser’s new PC 20 and PC 30 headsets. Supremely lightweight and comfortable for the long–often very long–conversations that internet telephony encourages, the new headsets feature accurate, extended-response transducers and Sennheiser’s exceptional noise-canceling microphone design, which effectively filters out ambient noise, to maximize speech-intelligibility and overall sound quality at both ends.
The PC 20 is a single-speaker monaural headset, while the PC 30 is a dual-transducer stereo model capable of delivering high-quality sound equally suitable for use in PC gaming and multimedia use as well as telephony. Both feature the same wide-range playback transducer, and an ultralight, non-intrusive microphone boom that can be shifted to left- or right-side placement according to user preference. With comfortable, ergonomic earcushions, and fully adjustable mic-booms and headbands that promote long-term comfort for virtually any wearer, the PC 20 and PC 30 are an outstanding choice for VoIP communications.
Synonymous with Sennheiser’s PC 20 and PC 30 design is robust reliability. Headbands and earcups are fashioned of virtually indestructible polymer materials, and feature a 10 foot (3-meter), Kevlar reinforced interconnect cable (able to reach even rear-panel connections on floor-mounted PCs) that will remain reliable and trouble-free over years of heavy use.
The Sennheiser PC 20 and PC 30 desktop headsets will be available January 2006, at Sennheiser’s suggested retail price of $24.95 and $29.95, respectively.
