Poly (formerly known as Plantronics) has launched the newest addition to their line up of best-selling stereo Bluetooth headsets – the Voyager Focus 2; a smart, wireless headset with next-generation noise-cancelling technology.
With 41% of the global workforce expected to be working remotely at least some of the time post-COVID, it is more important than ever to have a headset that can block background noise like your family, pets, neighbours or traffic outside your home.
The Voyager Focus 2 combines Poly’s next-generation Acoustic Fence technology with Advanced Digital Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and claims to eliminate distractions and focus on the user’s voice.
Nineteen hours of battery life also means users will not have to constantly worry about being near or connected to a power source either though you can also connect via USB if you want to.
Andy Hurt, Poly MD, ANZ said:
“In this work-from-anywhere era where background noise comes at you from all sides, workers are looking for technology that reduces distractions and allows them to focus on what really matters”.
“The Voyager Focus 2 is packed with three levels of hybrid ANC so all you hear is your call, while on the other end all they hear is your voice – no other background noises – thanks to our high-performance microphones and Poly’s Acoustic Fence technology.”
No background noise
Callers are guaranteed to hear you clearly – not your surroundings – when you’re using the Voyager Focus 2 headset. Poly’s pro-grade noise-cancelling microphone with Acoustic Fence technology provides Poly’s best noise reduction yet, delivering crystal clear sound. Poly’s Advanced Digital Hybrid ANC comes with three settings: high, mid, and off so you can set the right level for your surroundings. A convenient carrying case is also included, so you can take the headset wherever you go.
You’ll never have to worry about not being heard with the Voyager Focus 2 – the Dynamic Mute Alert feature lets you know if you’re speaking while on mute, and an online ear cup indicator flashes when you’re on a call for a visual cue to others that you’re busy.
Additional smart sensors will help you answer calls and play or pause music, and the smart microphone boom will automatically switch left and right audio no matter which side the headset is worn. The headset intuitively mutes the headset when the boom is in the up-right position to make sure you are always in control of your call.
Longer Talk Time
Poly has supersized its most popular Voyager Focus headset by not only extending the battery life in the latest model, but by also providing the option to use it as a corded device, with audio over USB mode. The battery alone will offer longer talk time, with up to 19 hours
Works the Way You Do
The Voyager Focus 2 headset is available in two different options; the Voyager Focus 2 UC and Voyager Focus 2 Office.
The Voyager Focus 2 UC headset connects to mobile phones and PC/Mac via Poly’s new BT700 USB adapter that ensures a more stable audio connection and extended range for when you need to step away from your device while staying connected. It also has a convenient desktop charging stand option to ensure one is always charged plus serves for easy desktop storing.
For those who need to connect to multiple communication devices throughout the workday, the Voyager Focus 2 Office headset connects with desk phones, mobile phones, and PC/Mac. The Office version continues to charge in the base when the headset is not in use, so you are always ready to take a call. It can also be used as a wired headset when plugged into the computer’s USB port.
Microsoft Teams Open Office Certification
The Voyager Focus 2 headset has earned the Microsoft Teams Open Office premium microphone specification with its noise-cancelling microphone and Poly’s Acoustic Fence technology, ensuring nearby conversations are always kept private. It is Microsoft Teams-certified and comes with a dedicated Teams button for instant access to the app. It’s also compatible with Zoom right out of the box to seamlessly support all your collaboration and communications needs.
Poly+ and Poly Lens Supported
For added convenience, the Voyager Focus 2 supports Poly Lens, a personal device support service, making it easier for IT teams to troubleshoot and manage devices while working remotely.
The Voyager Focus 2 comes with a 2-year limited warranty and access to Poly’s standard support. For additional piece of mind Poly+ is available, a paid subscription service that offers 24/7 technology support for personal devices around the world and a third-year warranty.
The Voyager Focus 2 joins Poly’s ever popular Voyager Focus UC line, which will continue to be available for purchase worldwide. The Voyager Focus 2 headset is available now from authorised Australian resellers.
