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.

A familiar name in the audio world is now in the professional office headset space.
Bose Professional has introduced the 700 UC wireless headsets in 2 color choices: silver and black. The audio quality that you've come to expect from Bose, along with 11 levels of active noise cancellation, combine to position Bose Professional as a serious contender in the office space.
Audiophiles are most likely familiar with the Bose 700 headphones; this is the same fit, feel and look, with one key difference: the included pre-paired Bose USB Link dongle. The Link dongle is plugged into your PC or Mac, and then connects to the 700 UC headset via Bluetooth to seamlessly integrate with your UC software platforms. The 700 UC are certified for use with Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and more.
The boomless mic design has an adaptive four-microphone system, which isolates your voice from surrounding noise.
With 20 hours of battery life, active equalization technology for premier audio, and Conversation Mode to quickly tune into your environment, the Bose 700 UC headset is a great choice for Bose devotees and others.
Included with the 700 UC headset is a Bose USB Link dongle, audio cable, a USB charging cable and a hard-sided zippered carrying case
for storage and travel.
Focus. Concentrate. Block interruptions. Eliminate distractions. The new Jabra Evolve series provides acoustic isolation for workers in noisy open office environments.
“The Jabra Evolve headsets create a complete personal concentration zone that boosts focus and work satisfaction for employees in increasingly open, loud and distracting workspaces,” said Holger Reisinger, Jabra senior vice president of marketing, products and alliances. “We have designed the Jabra Evolve series with both the employer and user in mind, delivering a vital solution to improve return on investment through increased workplace productivity and accelerated user adoption.”
The series of headsets include passive noise cancellation because of the specially designed speaker cushions. These ear cups are larger and are specially fitted to provide noise cancellation. The Evolve 80 has an around-the-ear design and a button to press for Active Noise Cancelling, which is fine-tuned for various noises found in office environments: air conditioners, PCs, and more. This type of active noise-cancelling is typically found in high-end music headphones and makes the Evolve 80 a market leader in office headsets.
Additionally, the headsets are fitted with noise-cancelling microphones so that your callers hear you, and not the background conversations of co-workers. In-line call controls for all of the models allow you to answer and end calls, adjust the volume or mute the microphone.
With the Evolve series, Jabra has several price points and features that should find mass appeal. Users who want to connect the headset to a smartphone or tablet can use the Evolve 40, Evolve 65 or Evolve 80. The basic model, Evolve 20, has foam ear cushions and USB connection and the Evolve 30 has leatherette cushions. The Evolve 40, 65 and 80 models have a busy light that can be pressed on the headset to signal to co-workers that you cannot be interrupted. The busy light also turns on and off automatically when you are on a call.
When you’re not on calls, listen to music. The Evolve 40, Evolve 65 and Evolve 80 headsets have a microphone boom arm that, when not in use, can be tucked away into the headband.
