Key features and benefits of the H2000 USB-C Over-Ear Headset include:

  • Exceptional Sound Technology – Enhanced environmental noise-canceling (ENC) microphones suppress up to 90 percent of distracting sounds, such as keyboard clicks and nearby voices. Dynamic 40mm neodymium drivers deliver an exceptional audio experience with HD voice support for calls and music. Sidetone confirms the user is being heard and sound guidance confirms mute status.
  • All-Day Ergonomic Comfort – Over-ear design with cooling-gel infused memory foam earpads covered in breathable heat-transferring fabric keep the headset cool over extended periods of usage. An adjustable leatherette headband, rotating microphone (up to 270 degrees) that can be worn on the right or left side, and rotating joints that allow the earcups to swivel up to 90 degrees ensure a secure, comfortable fit.
  • Passive Noise Cancellation (PNC) and Hearing Protection – PNC technology blocks out surrounding noise to eliminate distractions and maximize productivity. A convenient flip-to-mute boom microphone provides quick muting. Built-in hearing protection shields the user from audio levels above 100dBA.
  • In-Line Controls with LED Indicators – Quick access to volume, play/pause, mute, and integrated busy light buttons put key functions at the user’s fingertips to maximize productivity. LED lights provide reassuring visual confirmation of microphone status.
  • Visible Busy Lights – Viewable from the sides of both earcups, LED indicators turn red when the microphone is active, or when the user toggles to busy using the in-line controls, alerting colleagues of the users’ status to minimize interruptions and maximize productivity.

Kensington audio solutions provide comfort, convenience, and an advanced audio experience to maximize the user’s online presence and increase productivity throughout the day.
