Does your business need the popular Plantronics (Now Poly) CS500 Series wireless headsets or Savi Series? What’s the difference?
Plantronics (Now Poly) produces wireless headsets that increase productivity by providing mobility in the office and multiple connectivity options to support how you work.
The CS500 Series consists of DECT and 900MHz wireless headsets with single connectivity to Desk Phones.
The Savi Series offer DECT and Bluetooth wireless connectivity depending on model. The Savi 700 and 8200 Series offer triple connectivity while the Savi 400 Series offer single connectivity to PC/Laptop via USB.
Individual roles and use cases will determine which series is best. If you require connectivity to a desk phone, PC/Laptop and Mobile device, the Savi 700 and 8200 Series are right series to consider.
Roles that require connectivity to a desk phone only will benefit from the CS500 Series.
Those that utilize soft phone clients only, will be best served with Savi 400 Series.
Each series offers multiple wearing style options:
- Single ear headband
- Dual ear headband
- Convertible (headband, over-the-ear, behind the neck)
The Savi 8220 offers Active Noise Canceling (ANC) speakers which is a great feature to help block out distractions in environments like noisy open offices.
