Microsoft Copilot is all around...

  As the debut of Microsoft 365 Copilot approaches, there are a lot of Copilot features set to be introduced across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Here are a few noteworthy additions: Microsoft has unveiled a series of innovative features in the upcoming releases of Windows 11, some of them are already released, and some are currently available in preview builds. The Windows 11 Copilot, conveniently located in the taskbar, eliminates the need to open your Edge browser.

This feature, also in preview, is integrated with DALL-E and provides a swift and straightforward method for creating illustrations and images. If you possess a knack for crafting descriptions, you can generate quite impressive imagery. Another AI-powered feature is image creation directly from BEC. This feature, also integrate

Testing the EPOS Adapt 660

5 months ago I got my hands on the EPOS Adapt 660, and started to test it. My current headset at the time was the Plantronics Voyager 8200, which I have been very impressed by. I actually tested out the 660's predecessor which I found great, but I went back to the 8200 after a couple of weeks because I thought it was better.

Both headsets are quite excellent when it comes to the sound quality during active calls and listening to music. And they are both quite good at noise cancelling. They both perform well in open office situations and have quite good batteries. I can still (after more than two years) go through the day without charging my 8200. 

Testing the new 660, I thought it would be a close "fight", which it was. But I wasn't prepared to actually change my mind on which headset I'd prefer in my daily use. 

In the end, I still think the two headsets are great and I could find myself continue using any one of them, but there are small differences that makes the 660 stand out and is the reason why I now prefer this headset.

I guess there have been technology advances over the past years giving the newer 660 a slight advantage. And here are some of the things I noticed:

  • The 660 have a slightly better noise cancelling feature in multiple scenarios (in the office but also when in public)
  • The 660 seems to perform better with lower volumes (which I find comfortable when using it for many hours every day)
  • The controls for mute and volume just feels more natural on the 660.
  • The headset itself is lighter and fits my head in a better way.

Choosing the right headset for you may depend on many factors, but to me it is about sound quality, the noise cancelling experience and actual comfort of wearing the headset. This is where the EPOS Adapt 660 stands out to me. Not necessarily in one of the areas mentioned above, but the overall winner. It is technically ahead of it's competitors and it is comfortable to wear. It also performs well in most daily situations, making it a great headset for work, commute and leisure.
