Jabra 510 UC and the Plantronics Calisto 620 UC Speakerphones Go Head to Head

A few months ago we reviewed the Jabra 510 UC and the Plantronics Calisto 620 UC speakerphones. Both come from companies with years of mobile audio experience and do a great job of instantly transforming a laptop or smartphone into a conferencing device. Both have an MSRP of $149 and go for less on Amazon. Which is right for you?

I am impressed with both of them and can honestly say either is a good choice for someone in the market for such a device. Still, they are two different devices and you need only one. So lets run down the features in a head-to-head challenge so you can best make the right choice.

Connectivity:

The Jabra 510 UC has an integrated USB cable. That means you can easily connect it to a computer. You van, of course, also connect to a mobile device via Bluetooth 3.0.

The Plantronics Calisto 620 comes with a USB dongle that sits housed beneath the speaker waiting to be plugged into a computer so the audio can be streamed over. It too connect to a mobile device via Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR.

Verdict: Thanks to the built-in USB connector and Bluetooth 3.0 the hands down winner is the Jabra 510 UC.
