The CRN editors evaluated 216 products submitted to this competition across 32 technology categories. Criteria included “technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges,” according to CRN’s statements. The competition is designed to spotlight hardware, software, and/or services that have helped to drive the IT industry forward.

Audio as an Open-Office Productivity Tool
The MB 660 Series of headsets have been specifically designed for workers in distracting open office spaces, whose collaborative work areas often are distinguished by high noise levels. The headset utilizes adaptive active noise cancellation, allowing the user to automatically or manually adjust the level of noise cancellation the headset will provide over the course of the workday. The product’s capacity to help workers mediate ambient noise allows it to perform as a workplace tool, supporting the user’s ability to focus, which in turn contributes to productivity. In addition, this UC-certified device employs finely engineered technology that ensures superior speech transmission during voice calls, including multiple integrated directional microphones, which creates a high-quality listening experience for the caller as well. These are only a few of the sophisticated MB 660 features that were presented for review in the CRN award program.
