Yealink has made a habit of being on the cutting-edge of new communications technologies.
Whether that’s offering a deep selection of Microsoft Teams compatible phones and video conferencing systems or providing extensive feature-sets on open standard devices, Yealink has the answer.
If you want incredible background noise reduction to make your phone conversations crystal-clear, look to Yealink Acoustic Shield.
Acoustic Shield is perfect for the open office, where noise from conversations is an ever present problem.
But what is Acoustic Shield?
Yealink Acoustic Shield
Yealink Acoustic Shield is an innovative technology that greatly reduces background noise.
Here’s how it works.
The microphones of the phone’s handset pick up sound, both the speaker and the background noise.
The phone then intelligently processes out more distant noise. In essence, it sets a virtual perimeter around the conversation, as if it’s taking place in a separate room.
The name of the technology describes the effect: Acoustic Shield.
Acoustic Shield Settings
The admin can configure Acoustic Shield to determine if and how it operates:
- Enabled. Enables manual activation of Acoustic Shield by tapping Acoustic Shield softkey on phone during call
- Auto. Automatically enables Acoustic Shield when call is initiated
The admin can also configure how strong Acoustic Shield acts from 1 to 3, 3 being the strongest.
When Acoustic Shield is set to 3, it will block out noise beyond 20cm (7.9”), which can be very useful for a desk phone in the open office.
