Headsets for Call Centers[edit]

The business unit of Accutone builds headsets for office and call centres, ranging from telephone connection to VoIP connection. They are one of the few brands to supply Unified Communication (UC) Headsets in the market, supporting Microsoft Lync platform.[3] With the expected continual growth of demand for headset in the global contact center and office market, a research showed that Accutone is a key contributor amongst only a handful of brands.[4]

Consumer Audio Headphones[edit]

At the retail level, the Accutone brand is associated with a wide series of audio headphones, ranging from in-ear to over-the-head size and bluetooth headphones. Features like bass-tuning ability, usage of beryllium speakers, magnetic detachable cable, audio nozzle kits and dual-wear methods set them apart from other brands.[5] Accutone has partnership with American company Comply to supply all their pro-line products with premium memory foam tips to improve bass performance.[6]

Ergonomics[edit]

Along with other developers like Plantronics, work safety is one of the primary concerns promoted by Accutone. They have in the past been highly involved in educating office workers in headset ergonomics.[7]
