When it comes to important video conferences while traveling or working from home, choosing the right speakerphone can make all the difference. Speakerphones allow you to talk to someone while doing other tasks, without having to hold the phone to your ear. Hands-free conversations is especially important during long meetings, which provide a more natural and immersive experience compared to holding your phone or using earbuds. In this article, we will discuss different types of speakerphones, such as Jabra speakerphones and Bluetooth speakerphones, which can enhance your phone call experience.

What is a Speakerphone?

A speakerphone is a communication device that enables users to conduct phone calls hands-free. Instead of holding the phone up to the ear, the speakerphone broadcasts the call's audio via a built-in speaker, while a microphone captures the user's voice and relays it to the other party. This feature facilitates free movement and even multitasking while engaged in a phone conversation.

Using Speakerphones in Different Scenarios

Speakerphones can be used in a variety of scenarios, from working from home to being on the go. Here are some examples:


The most common scenario where speakerphones are used is when working from home. As the name suggests, speakerphones allow us to use the phone's speaker instead of holding it up to our ear, freeing up our hands and enabling us to multitask. This feature comes in handy during conference calls, where you may need to take notes or access documents while on the call. Additionally, if you're someone who prefers to move around while talking, the speakerphone can be a lifesaver.

Go On

Whether you're traveling for work or going on vacation, speakerphones can make your life easier. When you're away from your desk, it's not always convenient to hold your phone up to your ear while taking a call. Using the speakerphone feature allows you to keep your hands free, so you can do other things while on the call.

Work from Everywhere

In today's fast-paced business environment, people are increasingly working from anywhere and everywhere. Whether you're at a coffee shop, co-working space, or airport lounge, background noise can be a real problem. The speakerphone feature can help filter out unwanted noise and allow you to hear the person on the other end of the line clearly. If you're someone who frequently works from noisy environments, investing in a good quality speakerphone can be a game-changer.


In conclusion, speakerphones are a useful tool for anyone who needs to communicate with others over the phone. By considering factors like sound quality, portability, and battery life, you can choose a speakerphone that meets your specific needs.
