- Standard Edition or Microsoft Teams Edition
- USB-A Adapter or USB-C Adapter
- With Charging Stand or Without
Let’s take a closer look!
Poly Voyager 4300 UC Headsets
The Poly Voyager 4300 UC Series is a one-headset solution for professional communications in the office, at home and on the road.
They feature dual microphones on a flexible microphone boom. The two microphones allow them to support Acoustic Fence. This class-leading noise reduction technology detects how far away sounds are coming from and eliminates sounds coming from a set distance away. The effect is as if you’re in a room by yourself, even if you’re in the middle of an open office.
SoundGuard DIGITAL technology protects your ears both by limiting sudden noises and by monitoring loud sound exposure over time. Dynamic EQ adjusts the audio based on what you’re listening to, voice or media, so the audio will always sound best.
Call controls are built into the headset: call answer/end, volume up/down and power. Mute is placed on the microphone broom. If you forget to unmute the mic and start talking, Dynamic Mute Alert lets you know.
It has an on-call indicator light that shows coworkers or family members when you’re on a call by showing a red light, or when you’re available by showing a green light. On-call indicators improve productivity by limiting unwanted interruptions.
They’re Bluetooth headsets that support v5.2. When used normally, they have a wireless range of up to 164 ft. When used with the optional Voyager Office Base, the maximum wireless range is 298 ft. They can connect to a computer and mobile device at the same time, making it much easier to switch between tasks.
The design has been updated to improve comfort with memory foam ear cushions. The padded headband is adjustable.
The headsets are designed for portability, so you can use them on the road or at home, just as well as in the office. The headphones fold flat, making them slimmer and less prone to damage. They come with a travel pouch.
