Poly Headsets Have a Winning History
In the 1960s, the airline industry had a problem. The available headsets were just too big and heavy to be practical, and airline pilots were using handheld microphones rather than the uncomfortable headsets available at the time. They needed something better to be hands-free yet wearable and comfortable.
Two pilots in the industry decided to create headsets that actually delivered ease of use and the safety of hands-free technology. They managed to create a set that was basically small hearing aid-style transducers attached to a headband, and their creation was approved by United Airlines.
The two pilots decided to incorporate their small business, and Plantronics was born in 1961. Their innovative headsets were produced for the aviation market in 1962. In just a few more years, Plantronics was the lone manufacturer of headsets for American air traffic controllers and also supplied headsets to Bell Telephone operators (the early days of call centers). Poly headsets like the EncorePro HW710 and the Blackwire 8225 are examples of their continuing legacy.
The First Headset On The Moon!
In 1961, one of the founders of Plantronics was tapped by a NASA astronaut to design a communications headset for the spacecraft Mercury. Plantronics formed an offshoot division they named SPENCOMM, Space Environmental Communications. This division designed a usable and wearable microphone headset in just 11 days for the Mercury-Atlas 8 endeavor. These headsets were later used for the Apollo missions and are still used by NASA to this day. In fact, Neil Armstrong spoke through a Plantronics headset as he stepped onto the moon.
Plantronics began going wire-free as early as the 1980s. It entered the gaming industry with headsets for consoles in the 1990s and has been a history-making company since its very inception! The Plantronics phone headset is a direct descendant of this amazing heritage.
Poly Headsets: An Evolving Workplace Calls For Evolving Headsets And An Evolving Corporation

Poly has also evolved to meet the needs of the changing workplace environments with Plantronics’ acquisition of the Polycom company. Plantronics and Polycom became known as Poly and were then acquired by HP in 2023. The company is still headquartered in California but is truly an international company.
