great review, thanks
can this headset be reset
Good review and thanks. Fantastic headphones for calls and music. Very, very comfortable for all day use. Occasionally glitchy behaviour when BT paired, but generally solid. But, Poly, please include gaffer/duct tape for when (not if) the inevitable cracks appear in the headband plastic. Three sets so far with the same problem, so it's clearly a thing. Please improve your materials.
do we need a dongle for connecting for phones but we can not use dongle for a phone
I've watched at least 5 videos recently wanting to all I can about my headset. This is the first video that called out my answer button. Seems simple, but I could not figure it out (likely because this is my first headset).
Not sure why the audio quality is bad, it makes me connect it through bluetooth even with the dongle port in. which makes the audio bad, kinda no point in it without the HD-audio for 200 dollars.
Man, you really helped me for pairing the headset with my laptop, i had lost the connection and absolutely forgot the way to do it. Thanks you!
Dude, you should record the audio with the headset, this is misses the point without it!
thank you for the explanation!
Thanks for the thorough review
So I make outbound calls all day on my laptop. I use the dongle but keep having people tell me I'm breaking up and they can't hear me...Is this a headset issue?internet?my computer? very frustrating..if anyone can help, thank you!
can you mute from the headset?
I needed to re-box my Plantronics Voyager Focus headset temporarily, but couldn't figure out how to fit it in the box. This video was invaluable in showing me how it was originally boxed. Thank you. :)
Will it work with an iMac?
Nice video. Can one use it with the smart TV? :)
How do i dissable SIDETONE because i cant xD
None of these reviews ever says a word about the call controls, probably the most important feature in a headset.
This headset has a major issue with the plastic that connect the ear price with the head band above it. I have been thru 3 headsets and each one has crumbled at this joint. My organization decided somehow that these are cool to hand out and every headset which my colleagues have used has literally crumbled at that piece of cheap plastic.
Also, 1 in 3 headsets that i know off had to be sent back as their left ear piece didnt have sound output. (pretty basic requirement for a headset), 2 in 3 needed a firmware upgrade before they worked. For which we had to install the plantronics hub!
The battery life is generally good and the range is also reasonable. The sound quality is good (when it works) and noise cancelling is pretty good too. Thats why i also feel its a shame that plantronics build team is scrimping on the cheap plastic.
However, one small issue with battery life assessment, it will say 8 hrs remaining and suddenly in few mins warn about low battery and requiring charge. As if it suddenly had a chance of heart. I can live with it. But the 2 things which make me feel my quest for a good headset will carry on is that this headset is very cheaply built and the fact that such a high percentage of headsets are not working out of the box. Also the support helps since there is no good article about fixing the issue of one sided audio output. 1 in 3 times, replacing the headset was the only resolution.
Ive been having issues with it not charging while I leave it on the stand. I've tried making sure that its sitting correctly and everything but I can't figure out why. Does anyone know what the lights will look like when it is for sure charging?
Just one correction, the headset can obviously Bluetooth connect to your computer without the dongle but I read somewhere that you won't get the HD sound and possibly some other interactive or custom features.
Hey this video was super useful. Thank you.
thanks so simple love youtube......
This helps.. thank you..
This is so expensive
thank you so much for this video! :)))
THANK YOU !!!!! I was not able to connect my phone to it, until I saw your video
Thank you so much , very useful tip for pairing with Phone via Bluetooth button, rare videos showing this option. Good Job...!!
That’s was helpful thank you I did not know that you hold up the Bluetooth button
Yeah I came for laptop review...I do outbound calls and people keep telling me I'm breaking up. Can't tell if its the headset or my internet or my computer...Any help from anyone would be SUPER appreciated!
Thanks, great video
That was helpful to pair to samsung phone . Thank you
I added the app to my Samsung Note 9 but can not sync. I can to my laptop but not my phone?
so how about the laptop part settings?
the peeping is when making or receiving a call, but it works fine for music or movies
When headphone connected to iPhone, it keeps making peeping noise, downloaded the app and still the same thing. Any advise would be helpful
Thanks for the video.
Do you have a Video that Shows how to conected to a lap top??thanks
This review lacks a voice example recorded with this microphone.
No mic test ...what a joke. Tripppple mic
The video you want to watch if you want to know how to pair it and learn about all of its features. Thank you!
Nice video - love the accent! You helped me make the decision to buy it. Merci!!
Which one would you recommend: jabra evolve2 65 or Plantronics Voyager Focus? Does the Plantronics Voyager focus work work well with Linux based OS(fedora) using the USB dongle? I am trying to make sure if the connectivity is seamless and quick. How far is the coverage when you move away from desk?
Why oh why didn't you use the mic in this video so we could hear the mic quality?? At least in part?
As-tu cette vidéo en français?
If my laptop has Bluetooth, do I need to use the provided USB dongle? I read somewhere the sound was crap in that case - what's your take on that?
hi, if the battery is dead, can i use it with USB connection ? so i charge it and in the same time i listen to music "wired connection"
I am looking for wireless headphones that will be suitable for the use of computer calls, as well as suitable for iPhone calls
There will be scenarios where I will leave the office and have to talk on the iPhone with headphones
That's why it's important to me that I can pair with an iPhone when I'm out of the office without the need for a desk stand
What should I choose? is the voyager focus uc is ok?
uc or mc?
I would be happy for help from you
I use these for my TV. There are not many headphones with a charging base stand for home theater use using Bluetooth. All the other consumer tech is based around RF signals or IR and use a headphone jack/RCA connection. Some may use an optical Toslink, but there are almost no BT headphones with a charging stand - for convenient storage and charging. I also use another pair on another TV and use an optical to Bluetooth transmitter for superior range and to maximize sound quality.
Hello brother how much iphone xr age 5 years - 6years please reply
like can i talk to someone through the phone with them on?
hey on the noise canceling headphones MDR-ZX110NC does the microphone work with calls?
I'm using mine for the first time. Not too impressed. There's hardly any difference with or without the anc turned on. They are expensive 🙄 and I don't want to return them as I already returned another pair. The ones I returned were the Dre Beats, they were awesome! I loved them, except, there was a popping noise throughout my whole recording that really annoyed me. I tried to fix it through my settings, google, and YouTube as much as I could but nothing worked 😔.... These will have to do for now 😌.
Can you suggest which one has a better mic and is good to work in noisy environment, Plantronics Voyager Focus or Jabra Evolv2 65? Any suggestions on compatibility with Linux OS(fedora)? I am looking at buying one.. reply appreciated. thanks.
How good is it new at $150 for use in a quiet home office?
I love mine.. But when the battery stops holding a charge, there are no instructions on how to change the battery. So you have to buy a new headset versus a $25 battery... I don't like that, but I will still buy another one unless I can find a newer better headset.. This is a great headset.
Excellent review. Someone is selling me this version without dongle. Do I need the dongle to use with pc? Thanks
did he do money heist professor's specs pose..?
I've had two pairs of the Voyager Focus and both got significant cracks on the plastic part of the head band after 18 months. This is a known flaw but the headset is so damned good that I likely buy a third one. I appreciate the good review. Thank you.
I was checking out reviews on this headset as it is kind of pricey and wanted to make sure they were good!! Appreciate it!!
I just got this new with usb-c for $60. Now you are giving me buyers remorse. This is mainly for office work (phone and pc calls) and sometimes to watch tv via Bluetooth. Is the mic so bad that it’s worth spending the money to upgrade. At $60 this is way cheaper than even the jabra evolve 65?
I hate it when the mic is glitching like it is turning off on its own... Fixed it by updating thr firmware... The sidetone is really important, it is hard to communicate without hearing yourself that much...
I watch a video on these headphones but it was for the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC.... is that a newer version of the one you're reviewing? Or is this one you're reviewing a UC as well?
Thank you so much for this review. This is informative and useful So many reviews are not useful. However I find yours to be an exceptions
Found one on eBay for 60$ used but in good condition. I’ll take it!
Maybe my jabra 65 was defective,BUT I heard everything neighbors, birds, dogs barking bulky uncomfortable cheap plastic jabra junk returned & switched to this beast, sooo comfortable loovvve the mute, ANC is great, WORTH the $80.
Can you clarify your statement at 4:10 ? Why is a microphone wired to a computer always better than bluetooth microphone? And is also mentioned with this a USB microphone?
Thank you so much for this review! You covered all the points I was interested in, heck yeah
Price on this is now $175 on Amazon.. which is cheaper than the Jabra 75T. Which has better sound quality to the caller on the other side?
Great review. I'm deciding for the Evolve 75 or Voyager Focus. What would be your choice for the best all-rounder (if price does not matter)? Is the Evolve 75 way worse in music quality?
