The Poly Voyager Focus UC was launched in late 2015. It set the standard for enterprise headset by offering a comfortable headset with the headband and sling design along with including active noise canceling (ANC) speakers. The Voyager Focus UC has been an extremely popular and a favorite, top-selling headset. According to Persona Research October 2020 Factworks, 94% of workers experience ambient noise during calls – this is up from 71% in 2017. The new Poly Voyager Focus 2 headset creates a “focus zone” around the user thanks to the latest digital Hybrid ANC with three level settings that allow the user to select the right level of noise reduction based on their current environment. The pro-grade microphones with Poly’s Acoustic Fence technology provides 200% better transmit noise reduction compared to the Voyager Focus UC (according to Poly).
A great feature the new Poly Voyager Focus 2 provides is the ability to use as a corded USB audio device. However, with the extended talk time of up to 19hrs, not certain when that will be needed but it’s a nice option to have.
To provide even greater flexibility and connectivity options, Poly offers the Voyager Focus 2 Office variants that allow users to connect to a desk phone, computer, and mobile phone. The Voyager Focus 2 UC variants support computer and mobile phone connectivity.
These models are ideal for professionals on calls all day in noisy home or office environments looking for a premium solution.
Poly Voyager Focus 2 Features
The ultra-comfortable headband with sling ensures that the weight of the headset is evenly spread across the head – making it comfortable for all day use.
The plush ear cushions mold to the user’s ear for greater comfort
With up to 19 hours of talk time it can be used all day – for both work and leisure.
With the audio over USB mode – if users forget to charge their headset they can simply plug in and use as a corded headset – the best of both worlds.
The Digital Hybrid ANC reduces the background noise so users can stay focused on the task in hand and not be distracted.
The discreet microphone boom with acoustic fence technology ensures that any background noise is not heard by the far end. The noise-canceling works so well it meets the requirements of Microsoft Teams open office premium microphone specification.
