Poly announces Voyager Focus 2 headset with next-gen advanced noise cancellation


Conferencing hardware manufacturer Poly has today announced the newest release in its stereo Bluetooth headset lineup, the Voyager Focus 2. The headset is a smart, wireless, headset with 19-hour battery life and Poly’s next-generation Acoustic Fence technology with advanced digital hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).

Poly's research indicates 41% of the global workforce will be working remotely at least some of the time in a post-COVID world, so it’s important to have a headset that can block background noise in any situation whether it is a busy open-plan office, a warehouse, a home with children and animals, the side of the road, or wherever you find yourself working.

The Voyager Focus 2 features Poly's next-generation Acoustic Fence technology to eliminate all distractions and focus on the user’s voice. The noise-cancelling comes with three settings, so you can tailor it to your preferences and surrounding.

The headset also nicely alerts you if you're speaking while muted to avoid the dreaded, “we can’t hear you, are you on mute?” questions from your conference party.

A 19-hour charge also means you can use it all day without worry about power. The package includes a comfortable carrying case for protection. Meanwhile, an online ear cup indicator flashes when you’re on a call, so others in the area know you’re busy. Additional smart sensors will help you answer calls and play or pause music, and the smart microphone boom will automatically switch left and right audio no matter which side the headset is worn. The headset intuitively mutes the headset when the boom is in the upright position to make sure you are always in control of your call.

“In this work-from-anywhere era where background noise comes at you from all sides, workers are looking for technology that reduces distractions and allows them to focus on what really matters,” said Andy Hurt, Poly MD, ANZ.

“The Voyager Focus 2 is packed with three levels of hybrid ANC so all you hear is your call, while on the other end all they hear is your voice – no other background noises – thanks to our high-performance microphones and Poly’s Acoustic Fence technology.”

The headset comes in two models, the Voyager Focus 2 UC and Voyager Focus 2 Office. The UC headset connects to mobile phones and to desktop and laptop devices via Bluetooth. It includes a desktop charging stand for easy storage and convenient recharging.

The Office headset connects with mobile phones and desktops and laptops too and adds desk phone support into the mix. It continues to charge in the base when the headset is not in use, and can be used as a wired headset via USB as well as wirelessly via Bluetooth.

The Voyager Focus 2 headset has earned the Microsoft Teams Open Office premium certification specification, giving you assurance of maximum compatibility with the product. The headset includes a dedicated Teams button, and also works with Zoom right out of the box.

For enterprises, the Voyager Focus 2 supports Poly Lens so IT teams can troubleshoot and manage devices while staff work remotely. The headset comes with a two-year limited warranty and provides an option for a higher level of paid 24/7, three-year global support.
