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.

Poly Sync 40 speakerphones flexible for work from home, conference rooms

April 2nd, 2021  •   0 Comments

The current state of the workplace is in flux due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. At the beginning of the Pandemic, workers were sent to work from home at a rapid pace, with no idea when they would return. While some organizations have begun to bring back 100% of their staff, and others have completely moved to a work from home model, it appears that a hybrid method of working may be the best solution, according to surveys given to employees asking their preferences.


Hybrid working involves both locations: employees work some days each week in the office and spend the other days working from home so that the staff on premises is staggered and never at 100% occupancy to keep the workplace safe. In these hybrid work environments, audio tools that are flexible and can travel with you make the most sense.

If you work in a dedicated office space at home, and then travel into the office for meetings in conference rooms, Poly's new Sync 40 and Sync 40+ speakerphones may be the right audio device for you. The Sync 40s connect to computers via the combined USB-A and USB-C cable and smartphone via Bluetooth.

Daisy chain two Sync 40s together

Turn larger meeting spaces into professional-sounding conference rooms when you wirelessly pair two units together. When the Sync 40s are paired, you get bigger volume, more microphones, and wider voice pickup. Use two Poly Sync speakerphones with your Bluetooth-paired mobile device. Linking mode is available with Bluetooth mobile device connection only. (when connecting wirelessly to PC or smartphone via Bluetooth). Linking mode can be entered when both speakerphones are inactive (not in a call or streaming media).

• Your device will be ready to go for up to 30 hours of talk time.

• Access your favorite function — play/pause music, last-number redial, voice assistant and more — with a touch of the programmable rocket button. For use in common areas, the button can be programmed to manually clear previously paired Bluetooth devices.

• Never miss a word with multiple microphone array and full duplex audio. Workers stay productive with a high-performance, large music speaker for immersive multimedia.

• IP64 dust and water resistant. Protect your investment from everyday hazards.

• Two highly visible status light bars for 360 degree call status indication

• Microsoft Teams version supports easy collaboration and communication with a dedicated Teams button that gives you instant access to the Teams App.

• Keep your smartphone charged and ready for use.

• Take calls from anywhere —an internal battery allows up to 30 hours of talk time. A convenient charge stand is also available as an additional purchase.

• MSRP: $299.95 / $349.95 for "+" versions


Our customer care team can help you decide which Sync 40/40+ model you need. As a stocking reseller, we ship out all in-stock product the same day, on orders received before 3 p.m. CT. Our convenient location in the center of the U.S. means that shipping times are quick!

Jabra Evolve2 30 not your basic corded headset

March 25th, 2021  •   0 Comments

Jabra Evolve2 30 Jabra Evolve2 30 headsets at $99 ($89 for single-ear models) provide the right amount of comfort and user-friendly features that keep you working, whether it's at home or in the office. Collaboration and concentration are the two key pillars of effective work, according to Jabra, and these headsets help you with both.

The headband is cushioned in ultra soft foam covered in color-matched leatherette. The ear cushion is soft audio foam covered in leatherette with a stainless steel slider arm. While wearing the headset, adjust the headband so that it fits your head comfortably.

When using the microphone, it should be positioned close to your mouth. You can gently bend the mic boom above the tip of the boom, where there's a little bit of flexibility. Do not bend the boom arm where it meets the ear speaker; the boom arm could break off. Mute the mic by pushing the mute button at the front of the speaker. If you have voice alerts activated, you will hear that you are "Muted." To turn the voice notifications off or on, you can change the setting in Jabra Direct, or by pressing and holding the Mute and Volume Up buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. You'll find the Volume buttons on the back side of the ear speaker. We recommend that you download Jabra Direct once you get this headset; it will keep your headset updated with all of the latest firmware, and allow you to change a variety of settings.

There is an integrated busylight at the back of the ear cushion, and an LED light on the USB plug, to alert you of your mute status.

The cord length is approximately 5'. This is a great length for a laptop configuration; if you are connecting to a desktop computer tower, you may need a longer length cable; we have plenty of other headsets that fit the bill.

Taking collaboration one step further, the Jabra Evolve2 30 meets the Microsoft Open Office requirements (Teams Certified variants, naturally) – which is a strict test of how effective a headset microphone is at suppressing surrounding noise and office talk. The Teams button on the middle of the ear speaker will invoke Teams with a quick tap.




It's easy to take the headset with you and keep it protected, in the included felt carry pouch. Rotate the ear cushions flat and slide it into the pouch; the flap tucks under the elastic for security.

It may be possible to use the USB-C variant of this headset to mobile phones; however, we don't recommend it for primary use, as not all USB-C devices or apps support an audio connection to the Jabra Evolve2 30.

Our Headset Experts can recommend the best variant for your unique work needs at 866-998-9991 or you can Chat us now.

Poly Blackwire 8225 headset keeps you in the zone

March 19th, 2021  •   0 Comments

Working from home can be a challenge: maybe you have a spouse or roommates who also work from home; children at home doing on-line schooling; perhaps your pets are noisy. Whatever environment you have been working in, we know it can be a challenge to concentrate and focus on work tasks. That's why we suggest a high quality, professional headset designed specifically for workers who need to be on calls or in meetings using their computer, and require a distraction-free environment.

The Poly Blackwire 8225 meets these needs, and brings some hard-hitting technology to the table:

• Advanced Hybrid ANC using four digital microphones with three user selectable options (Off - Mid - High)
• Noise canceling microphone with Acoustic Fence technology (using 2 microphones) that meets Microsoft Teams Open Office-certification levels
• Hearing protection: SoundGuard DIGITAL: Acoustic limiting for protection against sounds above 118 dBA. G616 anti-startle protection limits the noise level to 102 dBSPL; Time-Weighted Average prevents average daily noise exposure from exceeding 80 or 85 dBA (enabled by Plantronics Hub software)

Other features we really like:

• 32mm speakers with large memory foam leatherette ear cushions

• Padded headband

• Two LED indicators on speaker housing show online/in a call status

• Call controller for volume maximum/minimum, mute on/mute off, answer/end call, noise canceling off/mid/high

• 7.2 ft cable

The included carry case protects your headset while you're transitioning from home to office, and everywhere in between.

There are four options to choose from, either USB-A or USB-C, and UC or Certified for Microsoft Teams variants. To decide which variant you need, read this blog post.

Blackwire 8225 USB-A
Blackwire 8225-M USB-A certified for Microsoft Teams

Webcams now available at Avcomm Solutions

March 17th, 2021  •   0 Comments

We've expanded our product portfolio to now include a variety of webcams, given the huge uptick in video communications over this past year. We believe it is worth spending some money to get a higher-quality video experience. While laptops have built-in cameras, the quality can leave something to be desired. The tiny lens and choppy video can cause problems, and distract from meetings.

A professional webcam is the answer, and also gives you the flexibility to aim it wherever you want, without adjusting your laptop. These cameras offer big dollar features at reasonable prices. Some even offer digital zoom; others have microphones. Check out our brief overview:
