Plantronics has launched new headsets to reduce distraction and noise. These include the Savi 8200 wireless headsets and new Voyager headsets. With the headsets it is also possible to walk around during a phone call.

Research by Oxford Economics shows that almost two-thirds of employees feel that a lack of quiet areas for concentrated work has a negative effect on their productivity, satisfaction and well-being. Plantronics’ headsets should help with that by reducing noise and distractions. Users also have the opportunity to move freely in an open office environment.

“Working smarter in an open-plan office environment is possible with the right technology and tools that promote communication and collaboration between employees while reducing noise and distractions,” said Shantanu Sarkar, EVP of the Plantronics headset business unit. “Our mobility and noise reduction innovations, combined with the Savi 8200 and Voyager 4200 headsets, will make a direct difference to employee productivity and satisfaction by reducing distractions in an open office.”

Savi 8200 wireless headsets have a range of up to 180 meters. This makes it possible to walk away from the desk, for example to have a private conversation in a meeting room. The clear audio connection remains active. Furthermore, the headsets have Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and a new close conversation limiting function, so that the voices of colleagues in the vicinity do not become part of the conversation. The headsets are available in both hi-fi stereo and mono.

Voyager 4200 UC

Plantronics also introduces the Voyager 4200 UC headsets. This series offers wireless freedom, ‘premium audio’, and a long boom arm. They are also the first Voyager headsets to have Skype for Business Open Office certification. The headset is worn over the ear and offers up to 12 hours of talk time. There are also dynamic mute warnings.

The headsets integrate with Plantronics Manager Pro, which is available through a separate SaaS subscription. This allows IT professionals to centrally manage headsets and provide them with updates and new features. It also provides analysis of device usage, shows productivity, anticipates problems and solves them before they interfere with employees.

The Savi 8200 series is available immediately. The Voyager 4200 UC series will be launched at the end of November.
