Read our review of the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC stereo bluetooth headset with noise cancelling
Founded in 1961, the California-based electronics company, Plantronics, has since established itself as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high quality audio equipment for a wide variety of businesses and consumers across the globe.
With this in mind, we shall be taking a look at one of the brand’s flagship products, the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC, reviewing the many features it has to offer and giving our own professional opinion on what types of businesses would benefit most from investing in it.
I was lucky enough to catch up with Paul Dunne and Clare Tibbitts of Plantronics at UC Expo 2017 in London, who kindly stepped me through what’s trending right now in the world of headset technology. Fascinating stuff, I never realised you could connect headsets to AI (artificial intelligence) – mind blowing really.
Shortly after Paul was kind enough to send me the Voyager Focus UC to review, setting the expectation that it would transform my Skype for Business experience which I use everyday.
Here we go!
What is the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC?
When taking an important business call, aside from knowing all of the correct information and having your sales pitch in order, one of the most import things you have to rely on from the start of the conversation to the end is the quality of sound. Should you not be able to understand what the person speaking to you is trying to say due to speaker interference or distractions from background noise, you risk making errors that could give your client the impression of unprofessionalism and unreliability. Fortunately, to counteract all of these possible issues, Plantronics have released the Voyager Focus UC Stereo Bluetooth headset to help you get the most from every call.
What can the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC do?
One of the most useful features of the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC is its ease of use and simplicity (I set it up in about 30 seconds) with regards to navigation and connecting the device to the required sources. By working seamlessly across various platforms including laptops, mobile phones and tablets, the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC is incredibly flexible and can be used on any device and from any location that is most convenient for the user.
As well as this, another interesting feature available on the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC is the Smart Sensor Call Activation that automatically answer calls as soon as a user puts on the headset, thus saving valuable time and boosting the efficiency rate of every operator. Likewise, the Voyager Focus UC will also mute the call and transfer the caller through to call hold music when the user removes the headset.
With Impeccable Sound Quality, the precision tuned triple-mics with enhanced DSP for superior background noise cancelling ensure that every word spoke is picked up with pinpoint precision and transported to the receiver with absolute clarity. This way, the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC ensures that no details are lost and each conversation feels like you are communicating with a person stood directly in front of you.
To add to this, the pillow-soft memory foam ear cushions encased in luxurious leatherette casing guarantee absolute comfort during every call. Snug fitting, durable and easy to put on and take off, the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC adds comfort to every call and provides wonderful relief from the strain of working with a headset for long hours during the working day.
By connecting wirelessly to numerous devices, including laptops, tablets and smartphones, the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC is great at supporting users on the go and adds much greater flexibility for people who work remotely…and as if this wasn’t enough, the headset also comes complete with its own carrying case for users that travel from place to place whilst out working on the road.
What do we like the most?
Though there are many things that appealed to us with the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC, we were specifically impressed with the incredible noise cancelling technology that ensures all users can be free from unwelcome exterior distractions whilst making a call. When you take into consideration that many remote workers are working away from the office and often take calls in environments such as roadside lay-bys or on public transport, for example, unwanted background noise is generally unavoidable and can oftentimes be a real problem for hindering concentration. With this noise cancelling feature, Plantronics Voyager Focus UC users no longer have to worry about that.
