The sweet sound of focus: Poly Voyager Focus 2 an exceptional ANC Bluetooth headset

July 28th, 2021  •   0 Comments

Poly couldn't build a sound-proof wall around your work space, so they built something better: the new Voyager Focus 2 headset with a "focus zone" for complete concentration in any environment. This is an update to the popular Voyager Focus that made working in open offices easier ... with today's hybrid work and the uncertainty of where you will be working from (and unknown background noises), the Voyager Focus 2 has hybrid digital Active Noise Cancellation for even better concentration and productivity.

The intuitive, high-end headset has an executive look and feel, with premium audio and clear conversations. Additionally, hybrid digital Active Noise Cancellation provides a "focus zone," wherever you work. Then you need a headset that is flexible, reliable, professional, comfortable, and offers outstanding audio for collaboration and concentration.

This Bluetooth headset builds on the original Voyager Focus model, keeping some of its best features (the sling headband is one of the best!) and brings in three levels of digital ANC to the ear speakers for enhanced concentration, and Acoustic Fence Technology to the smart discreet microphone boom.

The Voyager Focus 2 UC offers multipoint connectivity, which allows you to connect to two devices at the same time. Once you've paired it to your phone and connected to the USB dongle that you plug into your computer, you won't need to pair the Voyager Focus 2 again. And, the headset remembers up to 8 devices to quickly connect, without the process of pairing and unpairing.

A sleek charging dock is available with the headset, or as an additional accessory if you prefer to wait. We recommend purchasing the headset and charging station if you're planning to use this at a desk; this keeps the headset out of the way.

Place the headset on your head to answer the call ... you don't have to worry about looking for the phone.

The headband is flexible, with a super-cushioned sling design that evenly distributes the weight. This means that there’s no pressure on your ears or the top of your head. Generously-sized ear cushions are wrapped in soft leatherette over high density foam and they contour to your ear. It's so comfortable, you can wear it all day — 19 hours of talk time you'll be able to keep talking. If you should need to charge the headset, you can continue to use it. Connect to PC via included micro USB cable with audio over USB mode

Another new feature: Voyager Focus 2 Office headsets connect to desk phones, computers and mobile phones and the UC variants connect to both computers and desk phones. All of the Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC and Office variants can be found, here: Voyager Focus 2 UC and Office. Once you receive the Voyager Focus 2, scan the QR code on the Quick Start guide with your smartphone, because there is a 5-minute Getting Started video that you will find extremely helpful, and it includes set-up instructions.

Next, download the free Poly Lens desktop app to your computer. You can customize the headset’s settings (including the smart sensors), and stay up-to-date with the latest software. You also have access to the Voyager Focus 2 user manual, inside the Lens app.

Work from anywhere with Jabra Evolve and Evolve2 Bluetooth headsets

March 8th, 2021  •   0 Comments

Our team recommends Jabra Evolve wireless headsets for a variety of reasons, and most especially for the superior Active Noise Canceling (ANC) found in the Evolve 75. This is our go-to headset for working in the office, working from home, and traveling. Yet, this is just one of the many reasons why we like Evolve wireless. The portfolio accommodates a variety of wearing preferences, from true wireless to the traditional over-the-head headband. All of these Evolve headsets connect to two devices at the same time: both mobile and PC; a Link 370 USB dongle is included with each of the headsets. Each Evolve carries a two-year warranty, longer than the typical Bluetooth headset warranty of a year or less, and all are available in both Certified for Microsoft and UC variants. To decide which variant you need, this blog post has the information.

If you work in a noisy office (or, work at home amidst cute children and pets), Active Noise Canceling headsets increase productivity by providing a "cone of silence" for dedicated work and interruption-free calls. Noise-canceling microphones block background noise so that your callers will hear only you and not your environment. You can wear the Evolve 75 all day — the cushioned rubber headband and large padded leatherette ear cushions provide extreme comfort. Get up to 15 hours of talk time on a single charge. Mute the mic as you lift the boom arm up.

The Evolve 75 also has a charging stand that can be purchased with the headset, or without. If you later decide that you need the charging stand, it is available as an accessory purchase. We recommend the version with the charging stand for those who work primarily from their desk. Otherwise, the headset is charged with the included micro USB to USB cord.

For those who prefer an alternate wearing style with Active Noise Canceling, the Evolve 75e is a neckband with ear buds. Wear one ear bud to be aware of your environment, or both earbuds with the ANC turned on for complete concentration. The lightweight design rests comfortably enough that you don't even realize you're wearing it. The neckband will vibrate at incoming calls, so you're assured not to miss anything. A great feature: when the ear buds are together (they are magnetized), your music pauses or your call ends. There is up to 14 hours talk time in this battery life, and a 2-hour time for a full recharge.


If ANC is unnecessary, Evolve 65 headsets have three wearing choices. Evolve 65 is the over-the-head headband style; Evolve 65e is the neckband with ear buds (similar to the Evolve 75e above, without ANC), and Evolve 65t are true wireless ear buds in a charging case.

Evolve 65 offers a choice between mono and duo ear versions, and comes with a charging stand, or without. The Evolve 65 has a smaller profile and ear cushions than the Evolve 75, and is a comfortable option. We like the freedom of a mono Bluetooth headset with a traditional headband style, leaving an ear on the call and an ear on your surroundings.

Jabra Evolve2 wireless headsets are the latest additions to the Jabra portfolio that you will want to consider.

Evolve2 85 are wireless, Bluetooth, Active Noise Canceling headsets with ear cushions that completely surround the ears. The folding mic boom arm is handy when you need it; and when you don't, simply fold it up and store it in the ear speaker. The ear speakers also have microphones, so it isn't necessary to have the mic boom in place, if you don't like that look on Zoom calls, Teams meetings and more. The hard-sided zip case stores the headset, cords, flight adapter, and USB dongle, and if you are part of the current "hybrid work" force, you can easily transport your headset, safely. There is an optional charging stand, if you would like a place to store and charge the headset when not in use. It is available in both Black and Beige, USB-A or USB-C, as well as UC and Certified for Microsoft Teams variants.

The Evolve2 65 headsets give you 37 hours of battery life and it takes only 15 minutes to charge for 8 hours of talk time (full charge time is 90 minutes). The soft memory foam ear cushions mold to your ears, for supreme comfort. and the brightly-lit busy lights are integrated into the ear speakers. If you do not need Active Noise Canceling, we recommend this headset, rather than the Evolve2 85. Within the Evolve2 65 line, you have choices: Black or Beige, USB-A or USB-C, UC or Certified for Microsoft Teams, with a charging stand or without the stand.
