The Plantronics Savi 8240 now has improved ear hooks that has a mix of rubber and flexible plastic, for improved comfort.

 

#2 Better placement of volume/mute controls

This is a nice improvement because on the Savi W740, most people didn't know there was a mute button. On the Plantronics Savi 8240, it's clearly labeled where the volume controls as well as the mute/unmute.

 

#3 More durability

The Savi 8240 looks to be thicker and more reinforced for a stronger design.

 

#4 Ringer inside the charging base

With a built in ringer on the Plantronics charging base, you now have the option to have your softphone calls ring through the Plantronics 8240 charging base. This is a nice feature in the case you don't have computer speakers.
