New UC Headset Makes Chatting Easy for Anyone

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Headsets are an important device today not only because they can keep you safe and ticket-free while talking and driving, but with Unified Communications (News - Alert) on the upswing, the need for these devices won’t be slowing. 

Today users are hopping online and using their smartphones to chat with friends, listen to music and watch videos.

i.Tech Dynamic’s new device offers a single stereo headset for talking on the phone, listening to music on a smartphone or computer, and for chatting online using a service like Skype (News - Alert).

According to company officials, the EasyChat 814 headset provides clear, high-quality audio for an enhanced multimedia experience and is Skype Certified.

Featuring a 3.5 mm plug, EasyChat 814 can be used with most smartphones and portable music players, including iPhones and iPods, and users can easily switch between phone calls and music mode thanks to a multifunction microphone button on the device. 

For VoIP and online chat sessions while on the computer, the headset also includes a USB adapter.

For added comfort, the headset comes with noise-isolating ear cushions – so you won’t get uncomfortable when using the device for long periods of time. Also, the unit folds flat for enhanced portability.

This new device is being introduced fresh on the heels of recent speculations that Facebook (News - Alert) and Google may be fighting to buy Skype.

According to a recent Reuters report, after Skype delayed its initial public offering, Facebook reached out about forming a joint venture, two sources with direct knowledge on the discussions were quoted as saying.In addition, one source also told Reuters that Google (News - Alert) had already also been in talks on a joint venture with the video conferencing provider.   This deal could be valued at $3 billion to $4 billion, one of the sources told Reuters (News - Alert).
