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.

To accommodate the latest USB port on the market, headset manufacturers are now offering adapters, as well as headsets, with USB-C connectors.
Why the change in standard to USB-C? First, the size. By diminishing the size of the port, laptops continue to slim down and weigh less. At first glance, the USB-C is similar to micro USB; however, it is slightly thicker and more oval than micro USB and differs in a major way: it has no up or down orientation. PC magazine calls USB-C the emerging industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power.*
The Jabra USB-C Adapter enables you to connect Jabra USB headsets to USB-C devices, providing the same functionality as if connected to a USB-A device. The adapter is flexible, which makes it easy to use with your preferred devices without flipping around.
Plantronics also offers two types of adapters: USB-A to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A. Perhaps you are currently using computers with USB-A ports, but plan to upgrade to new computers. Your business chooses to purchase USB-C headsets, knowing that eventually, they will directly plug into the new computers. In the meantime, using an adapter will allow you to use the new headsets, with the old computers.
Within its Blackwire series, Plantronics offers headsets with the USB-C connector. The Blackwire 3200 and Blackwire 5200 headsets both have USB, as well as USB-C, headsets. In addition, the Blackwire 5200 headsets have 3.5mm connectors for use with mobile phones and tablets. And, they all feature in-line call controls, just like the USB-A versions, for ease of use. (Pictured is the Blackwire 5220 Duo headset.)
We expect to see the trend of USB-C headsets continue, as the technology evolves. Of course, don't expect the USB-A connectors to fade away; we believe they too will be present and readily available. The goal is to provide the technology you need, at a great price. Look to us as your headset experts. Contact us today!
