My review of the Polycom 5200 UC ear bud

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the things I struggle with is the reality of over the ear versus in the ear headsets. I have considered many times. I don’t always like the in-the-ear headsets. Although the Voyager 5200 UC fits snugly in my ear and because it wraps around the ear, I don’t feel like it is going to fall out of my ear. I have a VOIP phone (at work) and two cell phones. I have the Voyager connected to my work computer. I know, as someone that has many times talked to someone, that I thought was talking to me, because of hidden earbuds, I suspect that will happen. But the Voyagers fit nicely and free you from your desk.

A call come in, you can quickly switch to the call. Currently, I’ve used the device in the following:

1. Zoom meeting

2. Webex

3. Jabba Call

It works exceptionally well in all four. Reasonable noise-canceling abilities also. The setup is straightforward, and you don’t have to install software on your computer. Just plug in the paired USB dongle and away you go.  One thing that I haven’t tried yet but is going to happen is talking on the phone when the other phone rings. I have been on my work phone, and when I got a second call, I was quickly able to put the first call on hold and answer the second.

Overall I am very impressed with the Polycom Voyager 5200 UC. It fits in my ear well, and the overall sound quality is very good. If you are in the market for a multipurpose small earbud based voice system, this one is a good addition to your arsenal.

It comes with a great small case for carrying.

Overall my rating for the Polycom Voyager 5200 UC is an 8 of 10.
