Jabra Speak 810: Pre-Review Observations on the “Puck” That Grew Up


I have always liked the Jabra Speak devices ever since I got my first “puck”, which is now a staple in my traveling computer bag. It’s interesting to see Jabra go up market and I am especially interested in their new “Zoom Talk Microphone” technology that is designed to filter out sounds other than the human voice. (I’m hoping to do a hands on review just as soon as I gets my hands on this device)

Quick List of Specs of Note:

  • Connectivity
    • USB
    • NFC
    • Bluetooth
    • 3.5mm jack
  • 4 microphones
  • “Zoom Talk Microphones” filters human voice from background noise
    • eliminate keyboard typing sounds
    • dog barking (but who has one of these in a 15 person conference call?)
  • Support up to 15 users
  • Doesn’t need satellite microphones
    • marketing video shows Jabra Speak 510 and 410 beside the 810, but this is NOT to suggest the need satellite speakers
  • Powered by …
  • USB charge out port lets you charge a tablet or phone
  • Kensington lock slot
  • Size 14” long by 7.5” wide (source)
  • Looks like standard Jabra Speak call control buttons and no remote.

Listed Price $599USD

Don’t get confused, the Speak 810 does not use satellite speaker/mics. Just clumsy? marketing.

  1. Thanks for this post. As always great content!
    Marketing claims like that this unit (or similar units for that matter!) can be used in meetings with up to 15 users is IMHO the main reason why so many people are tired of conf calls in general.

    This is just plain rubbish from an audio standpoint. But maybe this is because people also like to listen to music via their iPad built in speakers these days.
