Sennheiser announces upgrade of popular CIRCLE™ headset range

Sennheiser, a leading provider of premium headsets and speakerphones, announces that its popular range of robust, wired CIRCLE™ headsets have been upgraded to give users an even better all-day wearing comfort and call management while ensuring unique sound quality in a lightweight, award-winning headset design.

The upgraded Sennheiser CIRCLE™ series headsets, consisting of 10 variants, provide professionals with an even broader choice of options, combining new features and proven functionality. The headsets offer CIRCLE Flex® dual hinge ear cups now with soft leatherette ear pads covering the acoustic foam, ensuring closer ear fit, day-long wearing comfort, and optimized sound quality. The CIRCLE™ headsets’ in-line call control units come in a new, more attractive and sleeker design, making them more ergonomic and easier to use. A unique magnetic holder allows easy fixing of the unit to the work desk, ensuring seamless, fingertip call management.

Delivering Sennheiser’s market-leading audio quality, the CIRCLE™ series’ new software-based sound enhancement profiles automatically adjust audio settings to optimize both voice quality for calls and users’ multimedia experience¤¤. CIRCLE™ headsets feature ActiveGard™ technology that protects users from acoustic shock and sound surges. In addition, a Noise at Work limiter offers additional protection in compliance with EU legislation¤¤. To ensure practical and secure transport and storage, the headsets come with a nylon carry pouch.

Lars Riis Rasmussen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, EMEA, at Sennheiser Communications, said: "Over the last few years our CIRCLE™ series headsets have become a popular and valued all-day working tool in many contact centers, offices and Unified Communications environments. We have used customer feedback to further improve the product range. Our user focus, unique sound quality and Red Dot industry award-winning design are combining to offer business professionals an even better communication experience, easier call management and best-in-class user comfort throughout their working day.”
