New ClearOne CHAT 150 Speakerphone Boosts Professional Audio Quality

February 06, 2023

Unified communications are being used more than ever today as more businesses are welcoming hybrid work schedules and collaborating from dispersed locations. To ensure these users still have access to the professional audio quality even in smaller conference rooms and home offices, ClearOne has announced the release of CHAT 150 BT.

This is a group speakerphone with USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The new offering is aimed at enhancing the conferencing experience to provide the ultimate in business class performance.

Key advantages of the new offering are the ability to instantly connect to personal computers, mobile devices or Bluetooth-enabled desk phones and still have superior audio clarity for audio conferences and video meetings.

The speakerphone also includes an audio bridging feature so far end conference participants connected via a software conferencing application through USB, local users of the speakerphone, and far end callers on a mobile call connected through Bluetooth can all join the same call and hear each other clearly.

It also has a steerable microphone array with first-mic priority. This means whoever is speaking, the mic closest to them will activate so they are heard clearly.

It also has features like advanced noise cancellation to keep the audio clear and uninterrupted, Duplex Distributed Echo Cancellation™ and Automatic Level Control algorithms.

“Every product we design has the shared goal of making it easier for companies and individuals to communicate remotely with excellent audio quality and class-leading simplicity,” said Derek Graham, interim CEO of ClearOne.

“The CHAT 150 BT upgrades our customer-favorite speakerphone to enable even more flexible usage that’s ideal for today’s ever-changing needs and reflects the growth of BYOD conference calls and meetings. ClearOne continues to evaluate the needs of businesses and individuals working in today’s complex office environments, and we’re proud to deliver innovative features and benefits to make every meeting easier and more productive.”
