Poly is a brand that's well-known around the world for producing some of the finest communications equipment you'll find anywhere.
With the shift from deskphones to softphones, there's been a growing need for comfortable, great sounding headsets to help meet this demand. The most recent headset to launch from the Poly factory is the new Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC Bluetooth wireless headset.
So what makes this a Bluetooth wireless headset you should consider? Here are some of the details that may convince you that this is what you've been waiting for.
Surround 80 Microphones
How about 10 of them?
The Poly Voyager Surround 80 comes equipped with a staggering 10 microphones. You get six to give you Godlike sound from the mics that are boomless, meaning where'd that boom that's always in the way go? And you get another four mics invisibly packed away to deliver Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation to help keep your focus.
So if you want to sound like the Pro you are, you need the tools to help make that happen, and this is one headset that will make that a reality.
Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation
When noise gets out of hand, it can easily find its way into your conversatiions, which isn't what you need. You need your callers to be locked in on you, and not the sounds in your background.
The Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC keeps the noise where it belongs; off your calls. You can confidently carry on with your conversations no matter how testy the noise gets thanks to Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation. One more reason to put this headset on your short list.
Another attractive feature of the Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC is Transparency mode. This allows you to have a face-to-face conversation without the need to remove the headset.
Anyone who's worn a headset knows the frustration of having to remove the headset everytime someone walks up to have a live conversation. This process is frustrating because it repeats itself continuously.
But with the Transparency mode, you can leave the headset on, activate transparency, and have that conversation.
Surround 80 Connectivity
The Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC comes with a BT700 USB type C adapter. It also comes with a USB-C to USB-A adapter to accommodate the type of USB port your computer uses. So no matter which one it is, the Surround 80 UC will connect to your Windows or Mac computer.
You also get a USB-C to 3.5mm audio cable as well. Some devices feature a 3.5mm port, so having this cable included allows you to have that connection option besides USB-C, and USB-A.
The Surround 80 works with your system
Voyager Surround 80 Battery
The Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC will have you talking til the cows come home, literally.
So if you're having one of those days, as we all get, you can be confident that the battery in the Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC won't drop you off the call. With a life of up to 21 hours, you can power your way through anything that your day throws at you.
You might only need to recharge the battery once a week rather than once a day like you're required to do with a lot of other headsets.
Conversation continue even when recharging
You can continue using the Surround 80 UC even when it's plugged in for a recharge. That's something you won't find on many competing models. So when it's time for a recharge, but the demands of business continue, the conversation won't come to a halt.
The Poly Surround 80 UC keeps you connected.
Surround 80 Comfort

The Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC was built with comfort in mind.
Pillows for the ears comes to mind, and we all love soft pillows. At least in this case, I'm confident your ears do. And the truth is, you can never have enough comfort.
Here's what helps to make the Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC a comfort hit.
So if you're someone who places high value on having a comfortable headset, the Poly Voyager Surround 80 UC not only checks that box, but crushes it.
Surround 80 Sound - like surround sound
Business shouldn't be all work and no play, and that's exactly what the Poly Engineers figured out when they designed the Voyager Surround 80 UC. That led them to design the headset so that it could house some impressively large speakers.
Not only will you hear your callers loud and clear, but that's how you'll hear your music too. You get a nice deep bass bump, pleasant mids, and sharp highs for pleasing premium audio. The ear cushions that full cover the ear help to keep the music in, and the world around you out.
So when it's time to hit the pause button on business, and kick back to some of your favorite tunes, the Poly Voyager Surround 80 will have your head bumping, and feet tapping.
This is one smart headset
The Surround 80 is smart. That's because it knows when you're wearing it, and when you're not.
Having onboard smart sensors gives you a lot of conveniences such as auto answering incoming calls by putting the headset on. It will also pause your music when you remove it, and resume your music when you put it back on. Just two ways that Smart sensor technology brings the Surround 80 headset to life.
The Surround 80 - A headset worth investing in
When you're serious about having the best tool to do your job, putting a Poly Voyager Surround 80 to work for you is simply smart.
