As the name suggests, conference phones are designed for situations where multiple people will all need to take part in calls at the same time. Rather than just putting a regular handset on loudspeaker, a dedicated conference phone includes built-in microphones situated all around the base. This ensures that everyone's voice is picked up loud and clear. They also feature carefully positioned speakers so that no one is left out of the conversation.
Since they are an important tool for so many businesses, it should come as no surprise that there are many different conference phones and speakers on the market. How are you to choose the right one? That's where the liGo experts are here to help. We have personally tested every model on the market in order to come up with the following list of ten of the very best. With stellar sound quality and advanced microphones, each of the options below is a great pick.
Since each business will have different needs, we have included a selection of both conference phones and conference speakers in our list. The former will act as a standalone telephone- usually using VoIP- while the latter connects up to a smartphone or PC to amplify the call. If you need any more information about these models, or a personalised recommendation, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us directly!
As a VoIP conference phone for medium-to-large boardrooms, the Yealink CP960 is one of the most advanced systems on the market today. Using the Android operating system, it offers a wealth of advanced features, but remains remarkably simple to use thanks to its 5" full-colour touchscreen. It also works with a variety of different connections: WiFi, Bluetooth, or even a micro-USB port to link directly to your smartphone or PC.
With optimal HD audio, this device provides crystal-clear audio quality for 5-way conferencing. There is also the option to connect an additional 2 wireless expansion microphones, to increase coverage for larger offices.
For sheer sound performance, the Polycom SoundStation is a superb choice of conference phone. Thanks to a full-duplex speaker and built-in noise reduction and echo cancellation, conversations are played out in perfect clarity. What's more, its multidirectional microphones can comfortably pick up voices at all volumes within a 7-foot range, making it the ideal choice for small-to-medium conference rooms. Finally, by drawing on Polycom's vast experience with VoIP, it's fully compatible with virtually all major SIP systems- helping save you money on calls as well as improving your conferencing experience.
The portable conference speaker of choice in the liGo office, the Jabra Speak 710 is the plug-and-play conferencing solution that you have been looking for. Pairing up via Bluetooth, it can be set up in just seconds with all leading UC platforms. For devices without Bluetooth, it can also connect up via USB-A. But while it's simple to set up, the Speak 710 still offers the same outstanding sound quality that you would expect from a standalone conference phone. Suitable for up to 6 participants, you can even pair up two units for larger conference spaces. And when you're not making business calls- the Speak 710 also makes a brilliant Bluetooth speaker!
Polycom are better known for their standalone conference phones, but they also make excellent speakerphones, too- including their latest model, the Polycom VoxBox. It includes their trademark HD voice audio quality, along with four directional microphones too. What really makes the VoxBox stand out, though, is the fact that it comes with an IP 64 rating, which means it is both dust and water resistant. Coupled with the rugged aluminium case, this makes the VoxBox ideal if you need a speakerphone while you're on the go.
A portable speakerphone for larger conference rooms, the Jabra Speak 810 MS makes it simple to handle all your calls. With Bluetooth, USB, and 3.5mm connectivity, it works with a wide array of different devices, letting you enjoy all your calls on its premium-grade speakers. It also includes unique ZoomTalk microphones to allow up to 15 people to take part in conference calls.
This particular model comes optimized for use with Microsoft Skype, but there is also a UC variant available as well.
