- Its compact and portable with a soft protective case
- It has some great visual indicators on it to show volume, mute, on hook and off hook.
As with all certified devices Lync picked up the device straight away and I was able to select it as my default audio device and begin using it. Super easy. The touch surface on the edge of the device is pretty responsive and works well even with my super dry hands which I sometimes have trouble with on touch devices. The 360 degree microphone works great and from everyone I know that is using this device no issues with dead spots with the microphone setup.
Time for some pictures. Below is the device after just being plugged in. The LED down the bottom shows it’s up and functional.
Next we have in a call.
My favorite, mute. Most other USB conference devices have a flashing indicator but this has a full set of red LEDs to indicate your on mute and the mute button is clearly indicated.
Lastly, changing the volume. This is really cool as well as most devices usually only have an up and down volume with no indicator of what the volume is. The SPEAK 410 lights up all the way around the device as the volume goes up. Very handy.
The only negative is the LEDs used as indicators could have been a little bit bigger but I am getting really picky since I found no other fault with this device.
As you have probably guessed by now I am a bit of a device freak and am constantly changing out the gear in my laptop bag. This one is definitely a keeper, well until something else perks my interest anyway.
