Noisy open offices can lead to unproductive and stressed-out employees ... and, unfortunately, this work environment is prevalent. Organizations should look to headsets as tools to bridge the gap and increase productivity in the workplace. Headsets must meet the needs of employees (who need headsets that are comfortable, convenient, and cancel background noise) and their customers (who need clear conversations, every time they call) to achieve organizational goals.
Plantronics' newest DECT wireless headset series, the Savi 8200, has been built for the human experience. The Savi 8220 features active noise canceling (ANC) that blocks out background noise so you can always stay focused on what’s important. This is the first headset on the market that's designed with ANC for desk phones! And, to further enhance collaboration and communication, these headsets also connect to PCs and mobile phones/tablets. Count on Plantronics technology for rich, people-first collaboration experiences so good that ideas can be shared and heard—wherever, whenever and however they happen.
With the noise-canceling mic, you’ll sound your best even in noisy environments. For the most sensitive environments, you can turn up noise canceling with the close conversation limiting feature (configurable in Plantronics Hub, free download here) for additional privacy. The mic boom is flexible, allowing for optimal placement: two finger widths away from the corner of the user's mouth.
Top Features of the Savi 8220:
*Active Noise Canceling
*UC and Microsoft certified versions
*Conference up to 4 headsets to 1 base unit - great for training in contact centers and also conference calls
*Connect 2 devices together, for conferencing between PC to desk phone; or mobile phone to PC

*Large leatherette ear cushions and padded leatherette headband

The Savi 8200 also comes in a single-ear variant, which does not have ANC. And, just like the Savi 8220 headsets, the Savi 8210 comes in UC and Microsoft versions for every user environment.

Active Noise Canceling is the trend that's taken over the business headset world.
Professionals who require concentration and silence to perform tasks, who need a quiet environment to make and receive calls, will find benefit to the ANC headsets on the market.
The Plantronics Voyager series is a well-known Bluetooth headset series often considered to be the standard in Bluetooth headsets. Reliable, comfortable, and always changing to meet the needs of consumers, Plantronics has listened to consumers, and has added Active Noise Canceling as a feature. Within the Voyager series are three ANC options, each with a unique role in the market that surely even the most demanding consumer will find a variant that meets their requirements and preferences.
The Voyager Focus UC has a desk charging stand, and a traditional mic boom. It is the most traditional looking headset of the three ANC options. On-demand ANC means that you can choose when to turn on the ANC, with a sliding ANC button on the bottom of an ear cushion.There is also a "Listen-In" feature that allows you to "drop in" to the environment with the touch of the ear cup, when the ANC is turned on, and then simply press the ear cup again to experience ANC.
The comfort headband and the large, extremely soft ear cushions get rave reviews from users. MSRP is $299.95.
If you prefer an earbud wearing style, the Voyager 6200 UC is the right choice for you. The padded neckband is lightweight and users usually forget that they are wearing it. The neckband has some neat features: it vibrates to incoming calls; buttons on the neckband manage volume, mute, and ANC with buttons on the neckband. The four microphones at the end of the neckband form a mic array, for great pick-up and dynamic noise reduction.
We are questioned about the ear buds: do they retract? Is there a magnetic connector to connect the buds to the neckband? The answer to both questions is "no." The ear buds hang from the neckband. MSRP is $299.95.
The Voyager 8200 UC has a boomless mic design, which makes this headset resemble headphones. Dual mode ANC lets users choose how much ANC is needed: either airplane level, or noisy office.
Sweat and moisture protection comes from P2i military-grade nano-coating. This headset gives you 24 hours of listen time and 20 hours of talk time!
MSRP is $379.95.
Plantronics signature audio, Dynamic Mute Alert, and the Plantronics Hub app (which brings additional functionality to your Plantronics Bluetooth headset with helpful tools, notifications, and status information) are just a few more reasons to consider a Plantronics Voyager headset. All of these headsets are "UC" versions: a BT600 Bluetooth dongle is included with each headset. Keep the dongle in your laptop port for always-ready PC connectivity. Not sure which headset you need?

Professional, versatile, and ready for business. Just like you.
The Plantronics Voyager 6200 UC is the latest Bluetooth headset for business that offers Active Noise Canceling in the earbuds, for complete concentration.
The comfort-fit earbuds come in 3 different sizes, for maximum passive noise canceling - plus the headset features Active Noise Cancellation that can be turned on and off. The option to change earbuds ensures that users will find their best fit. The earbuds should fit snugly inside the ear.
You can wear one earbud, or both for stereo sound, or simply wear the neckband and when a call comes in, the neckband vibrates to alert wearers of the incoming call.
We tested the 6200 and could not believe how lightweight the neckband is - we almost forgot that we were wearing it! The headset reminds us of popular sports headphones on the market that you see at the gym,
but this headset is all business.
Four omnidirectional mics have Plantronics clear talk technology and enhanced
noise cancelling, optimizing your voice and minimizing background noise. Wear it in the office, in the car, on the train, in a coffee shop ... wherever you work, the Voyager 6200 will help you conduct business like the professional that you are.
The BT 600 is the USB dongle that connects the headset to PCs. A micro USB to USB charging cable connects to both the headset and the weighted desktop charging stand. It all comes in a hard-sided zippered travel case. This travel case will protect the headset and we like that there is a small pouch inside the case that holds the extra ear tips, USB dongle, charging cable, and if needed, the charging stand.
There is much to recommend this comfortable, premium, Active Noise Canceling headset, and professionals who prefer wearing earbuds will want to wear this headset every day!
Jabra has added the Evolve 75 headset to its Evolve series, and it was worth waiting for! Incorporating Active Noise Cancelling in the ear cups (like the Evolve 80), with a lighter weight fit and feel (similar to the Evolve 65), we believe that this headset will be a valuable asset to many — in the office and on the go.
First, take a look at the premium hard-sided case that the Evolve 75 comes in. Imagine you're on a plane, and you've just touched down, so it's time to put your headset, phone, and book away. This case with molded inserts makes it easy to store the headset, and is protected by the hard outer shell. The easy-to-zip zipper is smooth to operate, and individual storage areas for the charging cord, and dongle, keep the case organized.
Next, the Active Noise-Cancelling is the real deal. In our testing, we could not hear ourselves talk when we were wearing the headset and the ANC was on. To quickly listen to the surrounding environment, simply press the Listen In button on the ear cup.
Choose the version with the charging stand, or the version without the charging stand. We think you will like the charging stand version for your desk, as it’s a handy place to not only charge the headset, but also to store it when you’re not wearing the Evolve 75. (On a side note, Jabra recently came out with charging stands for the Evolve 65 headsets.)
