my review of the Polycom Voyager headsets…

I have two cellular phones. One is the work provided and is an Android device. The other is my cellular phone. Recently for my work PC and my work phone, I’ve been using the Polycom Voyager. I am a huge fan of over the ears headphones. The Voyager fits that bill quite well. I also like headsets that offer noise canceling (what I hear) and noise-canceling (what people were calling me to hear).  Since I have a softphone (using Jabber), and I am frequently on either WebEx or Zoom meetings, I often use the headset to communicate with people. The Voyager allows for that easily. First off the included USB key allows you to connect Vouaget to your PC.

The other part is pairing, via Bluetooth with your computer. That is accomplished by simply turning on the Voyager, and pressing the power on button to the very top of the slide. That puts the headset into pairing mode, You then capture it with your phone or Bluetooth enabled tablet, and away you go! You can listen to music, take calls, and participate in UC and other Voice over IP conversations like Skype. The important thing for me is easy over the ear abilities of the headsets. I prefer that the headset support over the ear. I know, I should like the in the ear headsets more, I do like the other in the ear headset I reviewed, but that is one ear only (the Polycom 5200 UC).

Voyager is nice as it covers both ears. It also has a comfortable covering over the headset earpieces. I like to walk when I am on calls with my cell phone. The thing about headsets is they get a sweat on them. Part A is are they easy to clean (the Voyagers are). The other part is done they at least breathe and allow some airflow so that your ears don’t get sweaty (the voyagers do). The issue of sweaty ears is probably my problem. I like to walk around outside when I am on my cell phone. I don’t like pressing my phone against my head. Having headsets like the Polycom Voyager makes all the difference.

My rating of the Voyager headset is a solid 10 out of 10!
