The Speak 410 is the first gadget we've received from Jabra that doesn't rely on Bluetooth connectivity. Instead, this particular device is designed to be connected to desktop PCs and notebooks via good old USB connectivity.
Like every Jabra product we've tested to date, the Speak 410 looks great up close. The device sports an elegant disc-shaped design and finished in glossy piano black, the Jabra is quite an attractive gadget. This is a good thing given that the Speak retails for an eye-watering US $159.
The Speak can be used for conference calls or to listen to music and in both cases we found it a highly capable device. Using Skype to explore the Jabra's capabilities we were impressed with the voice clarity on offer on both ends of the call. This is no doubt thanks to the device's omnidirectional microphone.
If you want some privacy during voice calls Jabra has also, smartly, included a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Speak 410 is also very easy to use thanks to a selection of control buttons that flank the central speaker - we found the mute button especially useful.
Moving to music the miniature device impressed us again, as it was able to produce surprisingly loud audio that was completely free from distortion. The Jabra lacks muscle in the bass department but given its compact size and USB-powered design, this isn't a huge shock.
