Plantronics/Poly Savi 8240 UC Headset - USB-A
Designed for use with computer only, the Poly Savi 8240 UC is a DECT wireless headset. It has a modular design, allowing you to change the wearing style from headband to earhook to neckband and all are included in the box. The 8240 also comes with a charge stand and a standard USB dongle to establish a cable free connection. It's great for use with softphones, for webinars and online meetings as well as dictation and listening to audio files.
This is NOT a Bluetooth headset. It uses DECT 6.0 which gives you the best sound quality and range. You cannot connect this model to a mobile and it must always be used in conjunction with the USB dongle.
What is Poly? Poly is the new name for Plantronics.
This is an update on the Savi W440. The 2 eared version 8220 UC has active noise in the earcups to help counter background noise but as this 8240 only has one earcup, it doesn't have this feature (not much point cancelling out background noise if only 1 ear is covered!!). There's also a USB-C version for those who have USB-C connections on their PCs. If you don't know what USB-C is then you don't have one! However its a smaller version of a USB connection with rounded corners.
Having 3 wearing styles in the box is great if you're buying for a few people in the office and they have varied preferences for wearing style.That said, the 8240 does sacrifice a couple of features for this feature. The 8210 and 8220 variants have a super battery which lasts up to 13 hours. This model, however has only 7 hours which will further diminish according to several factors eg distance from the base, level of sound quality selected etc. You can set the headset to automatically use less power when it's close to the base unit. Luckily there's another model the 8245 UC which is the same design but with UNLIMITED talk time. So if you want that mix of wearing styles but need a full day's work out of the your headset.
The other downside is durability. Of all the Savi models the 8240 and 8245 are the least durable - you can tell just by looking at them that they are much more fragile. Staff will need to be a bit more careful with this model.
Range is a magnificent 180m, but please note that's a line of sight range. As with all headsets, this is diminished by interference from other devices, walls, and other objects between your headset and its base unit. In a typical office, Plantronics/Poly estimate 55m as the average range.
As with all modern wireless headsets, this Savi has a noise cancelling microphone so your caller doesn't hear noisy colleagues. Plantronics have developed a new feature they call 'close conversation limiting' which can filter out voices around you really effectively so your CALLER doesn't hear them. As with all headsets this is best with a long mic so if that's important to you, have a look at the Savi 8210 UCor Savi 8220 UC
Of course for YOUR protection Plantronics' Soundguard Digital ensures protects against sound levels above 118dBA; has Australian standard G616 anti-startle (during calls) detects and eliminates any large sudden increase in signal level; Time-weighted average prevents average daily noise exposure from exceeding 85dBA* *Requires Plantronics/Poly Hub software to enable SoundGuard DIGITAL features.
As you'd expect this headset is compatible & certified with all major softphone platforms such as Cisco, Mitel, Alcatel Lucent, Google Cloud, Avaya, Zoom, AWS and more.
NB The base unit will not ring when you get a PC call. The base JUST charges the headset.
