You've probably had this question when looking at Jabra conference phones or Jabra headsets and wondered, "what is the difference between Jabra UC optimized and Jabra MS optimized versions?"

Some common questions we receive:

  • Jabra 810 UC vs Jabra 810 MS
  • Jabra 710 UC vs Jabra 710 MS
  • Jabra 510 UC vs Jabra 510 MS
  • Jabra 410 UC vs Jabra 410 MS
  • Jabra Evolve UC vs Jabra Evolve MS

We asked Jabra and this is their explanation:

" The Jabra UC optimized and Jabra MS optimized versions are identical with the exception that the MS version will automatically set itself as the default device in Skype for Business and Lync applications."

There you have it folks, both the Jabra UC optimized and Jabra MS optimized versions will work for either application just fine. If you are using Microsoft Skype for Business / Lync, the UC device will work fine, but the MS optimized device will be auto recognized and vice-versa, the MS device will work just fine in UC environments.

Jabra Evolve and Jabra Speak series are some of the best audio devices for UC. If you have any questions or would like recommendations for your specific use-case scenario, please email one of our helpful rep via or call 866-369-3394. We will be happy to assist!
