EPOS EXPAND 80 conference speakerphone lets you focus on clarity and collaboration


Experienced audio hardware provider, EPOS, has launched an enterprise-grade Bluetooth speakerphone delivering crisp, clear sound for up to 16 in-room participants in the form of the EPOS EXPAND 80.

EPOS announced its launch in Australia only in September and is quickly ramping up its presence adding the EXPAND 80 to its business headphone stable.

While EPOS is new to the market, it's not new to sound and builds on a strong legacy with over 115 years of audio innovation and excellence.

EPOS states its mission is to enable professionals to focus seamlessly on their tasks at hand and perform their best, wrapping precisely-engineered audio with high-quality materials and craftsmanship.

The EPOS EXPAND 80 solidly brings the goods, being a stylish and professional-looking candy-bar speakerphone with intuitive touch controls, a plethora of connectivity options, and thoughtful cable routing.

It looks good, but more importantly, it sounds excellent. This is not the telephone of conference rooms past, bringing premium and scalable conferencing to up to 16 in-room participants, and as many more, as you can connect online.

To cater for rooms of all sizes, while still allowing social distancing, the device includes six adaptive beamforming microphones to isolate voices from room reverb and ambient noise and fills the room via its powerful ultra-low distortion speaker. The device is covered in sound-enhancing fabric. All this adds up to give a stunning, crystal clear audio collaboration environment getting the “what did you say?” out of the way, letting everyone get on with the job of, well, doing their jobs.

Users can easily connect via Bluetooth and the packaging includes a USB Bluetooth adapter for any desktop computer that may lack built-in Bluetooth. You don’t have to use this; a USB-C socket and provided cable also allow you to directly plug it into a computer, and NFC connectivity is also provided. If you do work with a cable the underside provides well-designed routing for both power and UB cables, as well as two optional microphone-in sockets.

For those working with Microsoft Teams, there's an EPOS EXPAND 80T variation which includes Microsoft Teams certification. Otherwise, the EPOS EXPAND 80 is fine as it is, and when not keeping your company’s remote workers in-touch with each other it makes an admirable speaker - filling the office with festive music, perhaps.

The EPOS EXPAND 80 also includes a Kensington lock port, voice prompts, and one-touch access to your preferred digital assistant. In essence, you can set up conference calls in seconds and it’s so easy even the CEO can do it.

You can find more information and contact a dealer at EPOS’ website. For my money, this is the sharpest and most modern conference room speakerphone I have seen for a long time and significantly moves the dial from yesteryear’s UFO design and ageing audio technology.
