We couldn’t build a wall around you to block out background noise, so we did the next best thing: created a “focus zone” with the new Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC w/stand headset. All you hear is your call with three levels of hybrid active noise canceling (ANC). All they hear is you with our pro-grade microphones using Poly Acoustic Fence technology.
And while you’re thinking about your call, it’s thinking for you, alerting you so you never again have to say, “Oops, I forgot I’m on mute.” Heck, just put on the headset and it automatically answers the call for you. It’s all the Poly next -level engineering you expect with the wear-it -all-day comfort you need.
3 LEVELS OF HYBRID ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION: Experience acoustic excellence others can’t touch. Loud and distracting background is just gone with 3-levels of advanced digital hybrid ANC. With this headset, you’re ready to have the most critical conversations with confidence.
According to a recent survey in 2020*, 94% of workers experience some form of ambient noise during calls. This is an increase from 71% of workers in 2017. Noise not only impacts a user’s ability to concentrate and focus on the task at hand, but without a good quality noise-canceling microphone it also impacts other participants on conference calls.
Poly’s headsets are used in the most demanding environments where clear audio is critical, such as emergency dispatch and command and control applications.
When considering noise canceling headsets it’s important to note that different technology is used to reduce noise for the headset wearer and hence acts on the receive side (typically this is active noise canceling) compared to noise canceling for the far end, which acts on the microphone (transmitting) side.

PASSIVE NOISE REDUCTION
The simplest form of receive noise reduction comes from the fact any stereo headset provides a physical barrier to the ear canals and hence reduces the level of audio that can be heard.
The amount of noise reduction will depend on may factors for example a headset, such as the Voyager 8200 UC, or Voyager Focus 2 UC Headset (w/stand) that covers the ear completely provides better noise reduction compared to one that sits on the ear. Leatherette ear cushions provide a greater acoustic seal to the ear and will provide better noise reduction compared to foam ear cushions.
Headsets with earbuds that sit inside the ear, such as the Voyager 6200 UC , provide a greater isolation from external sounds. An advantage of the Voyager 6200 UC headset is that it can still be used with one ear bud removed allowing users to still hear what’s going on around them.
ACTIVE NOISE REDUCTION
For greater noise reduction passive noise isolation can be combined with active noise cancellation. Poly offers one of the largest range of Active Noise Canceling headsets in the market.
There are three types of ANC:
NOISE CANCELING MICROPHONE
To ensure that background noise is not picked up by the headset microphone, which could interrupt the call, many Poly headsets include noise canceling microphone booms. These booms include a special directional microphone that picks up sound in a specific pattern that is focused towards the user’s mouth.
Sounds that come from all directions, such as background noise, are picked up with less amplitude and therefore are heard by the far end at a reduced level.
To provide the best noise reduction the optimum position for a noise canceling microphone boom is directly in front of the user’s mouth. Since this can be distracting to the user, as its in their eye-line, a compromise is made so that the microphone boom is typically located at the corner of the mouth.
The microphone booms can be bent so that the microphone is in the correct position. For the Poly EncorePro 700 Series an extendable microphone boom is used to provide the best placement.
CLOSE CONVERSATION LIMITING
Using proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Poly can further reduce any transmit noise. The Poly Savi 8200 Series use a noise canceling microphone boom plus a feature called close conversation limiting, which is designed to reduce the level of nearby conversations. The actual level of noise reduction can be configured via Poly software.
DISCRETE MICROPHONE BOOM
The Voyager 5200 UC, designed as an on-the-go product, includes a discrete microphone boom that is great for indoor or outdoor use. Windsmart® technology and a unique DSP is used to reduce disruptive wind noise for outdoor use.
BOOMLESS DESIGN NOISE CANCELING
For products without a microphone boom such as the Voyager 6200 UC and Voyager 8200 UC, four microphones are used along with beam-forming technology to focus on the user’s voice while minimizing background noise.
POLY ACOUSTIC FENCE TECHNOLOGY
Transmit noise reduction can be enhanced when additional, physically separated microphones are added, such as those on Poly headsets with Acoustic Fence technology.
Single additional microphone: Poly’s Acoustic Fence technology, as found in the Blackwire 8225, uses a long noise canceling microphone boom with an additional microphone located on the ear cup. This additional microphone picks up the background noise and using DSP this noise is minimized from the user’s voice.
Multiple additional microphones: The Voyager Focus 2 provides even greater transmit noise reduction despite its shorter microphone boom.
In this implementation Poly’s Acoustic Fence technology uses four microphones in total, two microphones on the boom and one on each ear cup, to create a virtual pick up bubble focused at the front of the user’s mouth. Anything outside of this bubble (typically noise) is ignored.
THEY’LL HEAR WHAT THEY’RE MEANT TO HEAR: It’s you – loud and clear. That’s all callers hear. The discreet microphone boom on the Voyager Focus 2 is not only ultra-noise canceling but, with its multiple microphone Acoustic Fence technology, literally creates a virtual noise-free bubble in front of your mouth.
It’s so good it even meets the Microsoft Teams Open Office premium microphone requirements. The focus stays on you, right where it belongs.
COMFORT THAT’S EASY ON THE EARS AND EASY ON YOUR HEAD: Stay engaged during a full day of calls wearing an ultra-comfortable headband with super cushioned sling and plush ear cushions. The Voyager Focus 2 is designed with you in mind – stay focused and productive all day.
STAY CONNECTED AND POWERED UP ALL DAY: With up to 19 hours of talk time it lasts all day. If you need more just plug it in and use as a corded headset.
Voyager Focus 2 UC: Connect to a computer with the included new BT700 USB adapter for improved wireless range. Or connect to your mobile via Bluetooth v5.1.
All Poly USB headsets and personal speakerphones are compatible with the most popular voice platforms – we just work. Poly solutions provide excellent audio quality for both you and those on the other end of the call – no matter your platform of choice.

Brilliant headphones and I got them fairly quickly.
(verified owner) – June 24, 2021
I’ve been using this headset for 3 weeks now. The range is liberating- not only can I be anywhere in my house, I can also go out in the yard and stay connected to my MS Teams session. The noise cancelling is helpful. The killer feature for those of us working at home with families is the microphone is very closely tuned to you. I apologized for my barking dogs 6 feet away on a call and was amazed when my colleagues said THEY DID NOT HEAR ANYTHING!! That alone made the purchase worth it for me. It is pretty comfortable and works seamlessly on both my Teams/PC and mobile.
