Poly Voyager Focus 2 review: pro headset has clear voice, surprise oomph

This voice-focused anc headset brings an unexpected depth to music audio..

A pair of Poly Voyager Focus 2 headphones on a wooden desk

Our Verdict

If it wasn't for the call-centre mic wand hanging off one earcup, the Poly Voyager Focus 2 would be a great set of headphones to take out and about, rather than being confined to an office setting. Voice sound quality is predictably excellent, and the noise-cancellation is first-rate too, but the real surprise is the deep, wide music sound range. It might skew a little too bassy for purists, but the light build alleviates any discomfort fears by the on-ear cups, giving you hours of immersive audio with good communication integration too.

  • Surprisingly deep sound
  • First-rate ANC
  • Good voice audio performance
  • Mic wand consigns it to the office
  • Not the sturdiest build

  • Should I buy it?

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 headset surprised me. Arriving in a nondescript cardboard box (a commendable move by Poly/HP to make packaging more eco-friendly), I didn't expect much beyond your regular call-centre headset, with its thin build, on-ear cups (rather than over-ear ones), and that customer-service-like mic wand attached to the left cup (or right? There's no labelling to indicate which way to orient the set). 

But while they may not top our list of the best noise-cancelling headphones , I came away mightily impressed and surprised after my few weeks with them, by not just the focus-enhancing noise-cancellation on offer, but the depth of the sound quality across music genres too. If it wasn't for that mic wand making me self-conscious, I'd happily wear it out and about for general use...

Poly Voyager Focus 2 review: Key specifications

Poly voyager focus 2 review: design and build.

A pair of Poly Voyager Focus 2 headphones on a wooden desk

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 is not a traditional pair of headphones. Instead, this is a teleconference-focused headset, with a mic boom/wand attached to one earcup and traditional-looking on-ear cushions (as opposed to the headphone-like Voyager 8200 UC we reviewed just before the new year, which have larger over-ear cushions). 

The headband is much narrower too, with a flexing thin metallic band rising above the cushioned faux leather that conforms to your head shape. It's overall a much more lightweight construction, and it weighs a lot less than the 8200, at only 175 grams in total, through a combination of plastics, light metal and faux leather. The headband metal is matte grey while the rest of the set is black.

Similarly to the 8200, though, there is a lot of clever innovation built into the headset. One cup includes volume control and a play/pause buttons, depending on where you press it, while the other one can answer and hang up on phone calls via a simple press. 

There's an on/off/Bluetooth switch , which if you press it slightly further up, puts the set into pairing mode, and there's one other switch, which toggles between ANC being off and in one of two intensity modes. 

The padding on the earcups is soft and very comfortable to wear, but as is the case with most on-ear headphones in my experience, you do feel your ears getting slightly hot after a couple of hours of wear. Also, as I wear glasses most of the time, the cushions press ever-so-slightly on the temples. What counters potential discomfort is the lightweight build and the ample flex in the headband, which keeps the touch light.  

Unlike the Voyager 8200 UC, there is a mic wand on the Focus 2, which can be rotated up and down, and is made from lightweight plastic, with the microphone built into both sides of the boom, so you can rotate the headset to have the mic on either your right or left ear without affecting the voice pickup by the mics.

A slight downside to the lightweight build is that I always felt a little scared I'd break something, as there's quite a lot of wobble and flex, although that may just have been me paranoid about breaking an expensive loan unit...

Poly Voyager Focus 2 review: Features and audio performance

A pair of Poly Voyager Focus 2 headphones on a wooden desk

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 comes with a host of smart features that you'll also find on board the 8200 UC, including two-step digital hybrid active noise cancellation, voice-clarity tech for videoconferencing and phone calls and multiple MEMS mics to deliver your voice clearly to your recipients.

There are also nifty features like auto-muting the mic wand by simply pointing it upwards, and if your connected phone rings while you're not wearing the headset, simply putting it on answers the call. The same applies to music playback; taking the headset off will pause your music (or film), whether it's Spotify, your phone's media player, a video-streaming app or BBC Sounds on your internet browser, and reapplying it will resume playback. 

While the active noise-cancellation in the 8200 UC disappointed me slightly, I found the ANC performance here more satisfying. Yes, I could still hear my fingers clacking away on my very clacky keyboard, but it filters out most environmental sounds without feeling like I've got blocked ears. With no over-ear cushioning, the effect is reduced slightly, but even so, it was on par with many purpose-built ANC headphones. 

As expected from a triple-figure teleconferencing headset, the voice quality during phone calls and video calls on my PC was predictably excellent, with clear voices coming my way, even with multiple participants, and no complaints over my voice going the other way. 

What did surprise me was the quality of non-voice audio, i.e. music and cinema. I found the Focus 2 headset to have a fantastic depth to the sound, with more bass than expected while retaining very decent mids and highs. It's not quite at the level of studio-quality headphones (the frequency response isn't quite as wide), but it gets impressively close. 

The Bluetooth connectivity is fairly straightforward, and the headset links up almost immediately once it's been paired to a device once. You can connect to two devices simultaneously, so I had it hooked up to my phone and my laptop at the same time. When a phone call came in, it would pause music playback on the laptop automagically, although I did have to press play manually once I'd hung up on the colleague/family member/scam caller in question.

Battery life is very competitive too, with 40 hours of playback quoted with ANC off, and up to 24 hours with it on. The presence of the charging stand also means the battery stays topped up, so I never got any 'range anxiety' from the battery. 

Speaking of range anxiety, the Bluetooth connection is quoted to reach up to 50 metres, much more than the usual 10 you see on most headphones and earbuds. That makes this headset ideal for large offices. I didn't test the outer limits of this claim, but travelling around my home and garden didn't present the headset with any challenges, even when confronted with a few walls and about 15 metres in between my laptop and my head. 

Poly Voyager Focus 2 review: Price

A pair of Poly Voyager Focus 2 headphones on a wooden desk

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 is a premium headset, so it comes with a premium asking price, or $247.99 in the US and £229.99 in the UK. Thankfully, there are frequent discounts available, both on HP/Poly's own sales portal and with third-party sellers like Amazon, so do shop around for this one and you should be able to score a pair for a figure starting with 1, at least.

Should I buy the Poly Voyager Focus 2?

A pair of Poly Voyager Focus 2 headphones on a wooden desk

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 is not a 'casual' headset, and the maker acknowledges that themselves, describing it as ideal for 'professionals on calls all day in noisy home or office environments looking for a premium solution'. If you fall within that crowd, or you're making a purchase decision for employees who fit that description, they will be worth the substantial outlay. Providing clear voice audio, they also give you a music/cinema sound quality you won't find in many other mic-boom teleconferencing headsets. Of course, the price tag reflects that, and if you like your headset on the sturdier side, you may need to look elsewhere, but if you have a nimble touch (and enough money), the Poly Voyager Focus 2 will do quite nicely, thank you.

Poly Voyager Focus 2 Review: Industrial Strength, Consumer Experience

This headset blurs the boundaries between in-office enterprise use and work from home use cases. With a great microphone, users should be able to audio conference in a range of environments.

voyager 2 poly

eWEEK content and product recommendations are editorially independent. We may make money when you click on links to our partners. Learn More .

As we continue to navigate what work looks like going forward, many employees continue to work from home, and many of them work from anywhere. Employee’s workstation locations can often change, it’s hard to anticipate what types of background noises and distractions will be present in differing environments.

Since a quiet, private conference room may not always be available, your audio solution will need to be able to block unwanted noise and provide a microphone that picks up just your voice. Last week, Poly launched its newest Bluetooth headset solution, the Voyager Focus 2, and designed it specifically to combat the issues that work from anywhere users were encountering. This headset is unique because it has features to serve the hybrid workplace as a pure enterprise at work user and a work from home user. The Voyager Focus 2 could be the single headset solution that works at home, in the office, or anywhere connected to a phone or PC.

I have been using the Voyager Focus 2 Bluetooth headset for the last five days as my primary headset for collaboration and entertainment. I spend 4+ hours a day on the phone and video, so good audio matters a lot to me. I took this headset through my use case, including Teams, Skype, Zoom, and WebEx meetings, and took time to enjoy some Netflix and YouTube on my phone. Let’s dig into my experience.

Features & pricing

To preface, I think it’s worth looking at what features the Voyager Focus 2 Bluetooth headset offers. After looking through the specs, this headset does have some great audio features that will combat noisy external environments. I wanted to list them verbatim to give potential customers a quick look at the feature-packed Voyager Focus 2. The Voyager Focus 2 UC and charging stand is available for purchase now and starts at $349.95.

Key Features:

  • Noise-canceling microphone with Acoustic Fencing
  • Advanced Digital Hybrid Automatic Noise Cancellation (ANC) with three settings: high, mid, and off
  • Dynamic Mute Alert
  • Automatic Muting when the microphone boom is in the upright position
  • Smart Sensors for pausing/playing audio
  • Microsoft Teams Certification
  • Up to 19 hours of battery life

User experience on my smartphone 

I started my testing by pairing the headset with my smartphone, which was relatively easy. Once I switched the power button on, I had to slide the power slider up to the Bluetooth position and hold it for two seconds.

After that, the system enters Bluetooth pairing mode, and the device name popped up on my smartphone screen. There is an audible “phone connected” speech that comes from the narrator when your phone connects. Anyone who has ever used Bluetooth will know how to do this.

Since these headphones are not completely over the ear, I was worried about comfort. To my surprise, the headset has very comfortable earpads with excellent cushioning, and as a result, I had no problem wearing the headset for hours at a time.

There is also an adjustable headband that sits on the top of your head. It can move as well, depending on the size of the user’s head. I felt like this helped ensure a snug, comfortable fit. When I use headsets, I do not particularly appreciate hearing what others are doing around me. I enabled the automatic noise-canceling feature and put it on the high setting for most of my testing. It was a drastic reduction in background noise pickup when I turned it on.

It was nice to have three different ANC modes because I understand that everyone doesn’t use noise-canceling to the extent that I do. I found the ANC especially helpful when I was working from home and when my dogs were running loudly in other rooms.

There are also volume up and down buttons on the outer rim of one earpiece. It was convenient to change audio levels on the device itself rather than reach for my phone. It was plenty loud for conferencing and entertainment use.

User experience on a PC

The device setup on the PC was a little different than the smartphone. I connected the USB-A adapter to my PC, and the setup was as simple as that. Similar to the smartphone setup, the “PC connected” rung audibly through the headset. One thing users will have to be mindful of is not to misplace the USB-A adapter. It comes tucked away in the carrying bag, but I could find it easy to lose if it’s not returned. Worst case, if you did, I suppose you could just use Bluetooth.

When I was using the Voyager 2 on Microsoft Teams, the acoustic fencing on my microphone was a helpful feature. I had people talking loudly outside of my office, and I was worried about my microphone picking up the obnoxious background noise—thankfully, acoustic fencing limits audio outside of the user-defined range.

The headset did make my Microsoft Teams experience better than usual. I usually opt for a set of wireless earbuds for conferencing, but the microphone usually picks up a ton of background noise and often isn’t loud enough for other meeting attendees to hear me. With the Voyager 2 headset, the microphone was both loud and clear throughout the duration of my calls, and never did anyone asks me to repeat myself due to lack of microphone volume.

I did find myself bringing the microphone to the fully upright position pretty often when I wanted to ensure I muted myself. This movement feels natural, and I like getting the microphone out of the way when I am not on a conferencing call.

Battery life 

I appreciated the long battery life that this headset offered. Poly claimed up to 19 hours of battery life, and in my experience, that seemed accurate.

I tried to see any variance in battery life while taking the headset through different audio workloads. I streamed music from Spotify, took meetings on various video conferencing platforms, and streamed entertainment. Each day looked a little different, some were meetings heavy, and this past Saturday was very entertainment rich, but despite the use case, there was slight variance in the battery life.

My system came with a charging stand and connected to my PC via a USB-A port. It was easy to return the device to the stand after each use and recharge the battery.

Final thoughts after testing

After using and testing the Voyager 2 headset across several different apps, rooms, and environments, I was impressed with the headset’s adaptability. This headset blurs the boundaries between in-office enterprise use and work from home use cases. With a great microphone, three levels of ANC, and acoustic fencing, users should be able to audio conference in a range of environments ranging from a crowded, noisy office environment to a quiet home office.

I see a lot of enterprise value in the Voyager 2 headset. The noise cancelation feature will be critical for office workers who want to block out the loud external office environments. A quality microphone is essential for enterprise productivity as well. A lot of the time, a pair of Bluetooth earbuds do not cut it for getting clear audio and communicating effectively. One feature I believe enterprise users will love is the acoustic fencing that will block noise that doesn’t fall within a predetermined range.  I love being in the office and collaborating, but other meeting attendees don’t care to hear what the guy two cubes over had for lunch.

I know we are focused on the Voyager 2 headset, but Poly offers a wide range of collaboration devices to suit almost any conferencing use case. The products range from video bars to wireless headsets to speakers to webcams, and much more. The products supported by Poly Lens software offer a customizable experience that you can tailor to fit your needs.

Wrapping up

All in all, the new Voyager Focus 2 headset is an excellent addition to Poly’s portfolio. The system has a comfortable design, superior noise cancellation, excellent microphone quality, and long battery life. I appreciate how simple the device is to implement to both the PC and the smartphone as well. For users who need automatic noise cancellation and a solid microphone, you should consider the Voyager Focus 2 Bluetooth headset.

This launch shows that Poly continuously adapts and adds new features to its devices as the needs of the user change over time. For that, it deserves credit. Excellent work, Poly.

Poly Voyager Focus 2: If it ain’t broke, improve it anyway!

Poly Voyager Focus 2: If it ain’t broke, improve it anyway!

Poly Voyager Focus 2

With hybrid work now the new normal (that is, working from just about anywhere), there is a huge need for technology to be able to shut out the world around us for a time and allow us to work in a little bubble; to create a space where we can work distraction-free.

voyager 2 poly

We see it with virtual backgrounds in our web meetings and advanced headsets like  the Poly Voyager Focus 2  that both actively cancel out noisy environments for us and fellow participants when on a call.

Poly says Voyager Focus 2 comes with a host of revisions that improve the formula that made its predecessor so good. So let’s dive in and check it out.

Design & Comfort.

I’m generally a fan of the Voyager Focus 2 when it comes to design. It’s very light, compact and feels quite sturdy. The headband is a flexible metal and there is a nice mix of matt and textured plastics. Thankfully, the glossy plastic is only on the dock as it does have the tendency to show fingerprints.

My last two weeks have been spent flying on business with nothing more than a tightly packed messenger bag that included a five hundred page novel, Laptop, Travel Headphones and the Voyager 2’s bundled in a nifty neoprene carry bag. Safe to say, they’ve lived to tell the tale.

However, the Voyager Focus 2 loses a point for the micro USB charging socket; I think micro USB has run its course, and it would be nice to see USB-C adopted.

Poly’s formula for comfort was a standout in its previous model, and that hasn’t changed. If it ain’t broke, right? The headphone pads are soft, cool to the touch and breathable. I was able to comfortably wear them for hours at a time without feeling the need to take them off.

Technology & Usability

The Voyager Focus 2 hasn’t been left wanting for technology either. There is a raft of new features which improve connectivity, battery life and user experience.

As we’ve come to expect with Poly, it’s so simple to set up. Plug the included BT700 dongle in, turn on the Voyager Focus 2, and your PC will take care of the rest with setting up complete in under 10 seconds. With native support for all the major collaboration platforms out there such as Teams and Webex, you’ll be up and running before you know it. If you do get stuck, there is a quick reference guide card complete with a Q code link.

Bluetooth 5.1 has been introduced, offering improved transmission speeds and sound quality. It also lowers energy consumption and increases range.

Poly has also beefed up the battery life, meaning you’ll get up to 19 hours of use off one two hour charge and about 40 hours of listening time if you’re using it for media like music.

In addition to this, Poly’s propeller heads have introduced a suite of acoustic aids and sensors which they combine to call the “focus zone”. It entails three levels of active noise cancelling, acoustic fence technology (suppresses background noise for your listeners), and dynamic mute alert that lets you know if you’re speaking while muted. Other human-centred engineering features include the ability to answer a call by just placing the headset on your head. You can place them on mute by simply putting them back down on the table or swivelling the microphone boom back to the vertical. Beautiful.

The only minor bugbear was the ability to pause what you’re listening to when putting the headset down. There is a delay of a few seconds, so you may find yourself having to rewind five or so seconds to get that detail back.

Another feature that Poly has considered is a “do not disturb” light that flashes when you’re on a call to let others know not to interrupt you. It sounds like an excellent idea in principle, but how do people around you know what the flashing light means? You may need to put up a sign at your cubical that says, “if the light is a flashin’, don’t come to a’knockin'” or something to that effect.

Sound Quality: Calls

Once you’ve used a headset like the Voyager Focus 2, you’ll wonder how you worked without it. It really does make life easier, switching on full active noise cancelling in a noisy office environment almost teleports you into a closed meeting room, it’s that effective.

The voice clarity is clear and lifelike. The quality of the microphone too, did well to suppress the noisy office environment with my colleague’s feedback

Sound Quality: Media

The Voyager Focus 2 surprised me on this test, particularly with music.

Given that audiophile-grade sound probably wasn’t a primary goal when the engineers set out to design this headset, they’ve done an outstanding job tuning them for a wide range of music. For this test, I listened to Sons Of The East’s “You Might Think” and several tracks from the No Time Die soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.

voyager 2 poly

The soundstage is impressive, and there is no distortion across the range. Hans Zimmer uses rumbling bass effects in many of his tracks, and the Voyager Focus 2 didn’t break a sweat. Harmonica and Acoustic Guitar feature heavily in “You Might Think” from Sons Of The East, and Voyager Focus 2 lets those instruments in the higher frequency range shine. There is a good separation between the instruments and vocals to create an excellent listening experience- a good portion of detail and no muddiness. This was not what I expected for a headset that’s primary purpose is web meetings—props to the engineers at Poly for not neglecting this. I wouldn’t feel like I was losing out by using these just out of convenience as a music lover. Couple this sound quality with the active noise cancelling, and you can happily disappear for hours into your work in a bubble of serenity. Just be forewarned; if you’re working from home with your spouse in the house, let them know you’re not ignoring them; it’s just that the active noise cancelling on the Voyager Focus 2 is pretty darn good. If it’s this good with music, it goes without saying that it’s good with other forms of media too.

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 strikes an excellent balance between work and play, which is fitting given the seismic shift in how many of us will work moving into the future. The battery life is strong, and as mentioned, the sound quality and active noise cancelling en pointe.

Is this a headset I would recommend? Yes. Is it one I would buy? Yes- it’s on the shopping list, actually. Don’t forget to chat to your tax accountant about claiming it back for work use!

Many thanks to Poly for the loan of the Poly Voyager Focus 2 for this review!

Poly Voyager Focus 2 Review: A Descendent of the Space Race, the Poly Voyager Focus 2 Demonstrates the Power of Simplicity and Resilience

November 15, 2022 by Daniel W. Rasmus 5 Comments

Poly Voyager Focus 2

voyager 2 poly

One of the best business-first headsets. The Poly Voyager Focus 2 floats above the head while delivering outstanding sound within its ANC-powered acoustic fence. The perfect conferencing companion.

Poly Voyager Focus 2 Review

I see a lot of headsets. Right now, I’m wearing the Voyager Focus 2s exclusively for video conferences. And I’m unlikely to change any time soon.

There is something to be said about a high-end product. At a retail price of $329.99 ($234.95 currently on Poly’s site), the Voyagers see a lot of competition from other headsets designed for call centers and long hours of video conferencing. And frankly, most earbuds and headphones do double duty with sophisticated microphone arrays that work as well on a desktop computer as they do on a smartphone. But the Voyager’s lightness of its structure, robust connectivity, and acoustic-first design creates a combination that’s hard to ignore.

Poly Voyager Focus 2 Specifications

  • Bluetooth® v5.1 Class 1 Multipoint connectivity, the headset connects two devices simultaneously and remembers up to 8 devices.
  • Supported Bluetooth® profiles: A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, HFP
  • Range: Voyager Focus 2 UC is up to 50 m/164 ft; Voyager Office base is up to 91 m/300ft
  • Battery Capacity: 560mAh
  • Battery Type: lithium-ion
  • Talk time: 15-25 hours, depending on the ANC setting
  • Listening time: 24-40 hours, depending on the ANC setting
  • Charge time: 2 hours for a full charge • Standby time: up to 30 days
  • Dynamic EQ optimized for PC wideband voice telephony up to 7 kHz or for multimedia 20 Hz to 20 kHz
  • Digital Hybrid ANC using two digital MEMS microphones and two analog ECM microphones with three user settings (Off/low/high)
  • SoundGuard DIGITAL: G616 support limits the level to 102 dBSPL
  • Weight: 175 g/.38 lbs

What we like

If you go back into the history of Poly (now part of HP ), to its Polycom days, they built the headsets for NASA’s Apollo missions. That means light and sturdy define the legacy behind the Poly Voyager Focus 2 headset. In many ways, the Poly harkens back to those earlier designs.

The foam ear cushions sit on the ear, so there is no strain from seals around the ear or a heavy armature pushing down on the top of the ears as gravity pulls the headphones toward the center of the earth. The boom microphone responds to purposeful and casual pushes and tugs. The subtle LEDs share just enough information.

Poly Voyager Focus 2

Good design may continue to influence, but the components inside the Voyager Focus 2 certainly increase the audio quality of every aspect of the listening experience compared to 1960s and 1970s technology. And while I would classify the Poly Voyager Focus 2s as ideal for video conferencing, they also offer solid sound for music and other audio pursuits, from catching a Netflix flick at lunch to power listening to a podcast on 2-time replay speed.

The Poly Voyager Focus 2s offer 3-levels of Digital Hybrid Active Noise Cancelation (ANC). I tend to block out the world, and I don’t look back. While I’m sure the Voyager Focus 2s do a fine job on planes, I tend to like the sound isolation of a sealed earcup combined with ANC when in very noisy environments, so they are not my first choice in the air. However, their lightness and well-made travel case means they travel with me to be used in the hotel room when I need to work from the room.

If you ever wanted an acoustic fence around you, look no further than the Voyager Focus 2s. Multiple microphones cancel out the noise around you, so callers hear you—not the baby, not the rattle of dog tags or the rumble of the washing machine.

While the Poly Voyager Focus 2s can leverage Bluetooth®, the included transceiver makes for a more secure, higher-quality connection. And if you want to use the Voyager Focus 2 as a corded headset, use a micro-USB connection. They deliver up to 25 hours of playback from the 560mHa battery. With the attractive charging stand, I never approach even a warning for the battery. The Focus 2s will sit on standby for up to 30 days, often longer.

Unlike some headphones, notably the recently reviewed Targus headset, the Voyager Focus 2’s microphone boom rotates 360 degrees. It works as well with the microphone boom on the right or the left—changing orientation requires only turning the headset around. The boom includes a mute button—a feature invoked by removing the headset.

On-device controls include call answer and end, volume, power on, off, pairing, and ANC control.

Because the Voyager Focus 2s derive from an acoustic-first legacy, they include features like SoundGuard DIGITAL: G616 that limits the wearer’s hearing to noise exposure.

Like the Poly Studio P5 , the Voyager Focus 2 works with the Poly Lens app to keep its firmware current and user-configurable parameters accessible. One of Poly’s most innovative designs comes in the Studio P5, which includes a USB-A transceiver port to house the Focus 2 transceiver, freeing up a USB port on host computers.

Poly offers a 2-year limited warranty.

The packaging is minimal brown cardboard that screams environmentally conscious.

The Office base version connects to a desk phone. Poly also sells a Microsoft Teams-certified version, though my headset works well with every conferencing service.

What could be improved

voyager 2 poly

The open design of Poly Voyager Focus 2s leaves little to the imagination. Rather than metal hidden under plastic, the Voyager headset celebrates its metal headband as the hero of its structural story. It suspends its cushion beneath the headband, so it floats. There is nothing weighty about the Voyager Focus 2s.

So why write effusively in the “what could be improved section?” Because the unique design leaves little room for improvement.

My only real nit, and I know it’s a generational issue that will change whenever the Voyager 3s ship, is the continued use of micro-USB. I also have to admit that I can be a bit casual with the Voyager Focus 2s, often finding them in the morning lying next to my keyboard with the power still on. So perhaps an auto-off feature? It seems like it should have one, but it doesn’t appear in the specifications. Luckily a few hours of sleep put only a dent in the remaining full charge from most mornings.

Poly Voyager Focus 2: The Bottom Line

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 headset is one of the best audio work companions available. It does a pretty good job with sound all around, so take a few minutes to crank up Dua Lipa and Elton John after sitting through a meeting about making a decision you could have made in that meeting.

Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC VS. Poly Voyager 4320 - Live Mic Test VIDEO

Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC VS. Poly Voyager 4320 - Live Mic Test VIDEO - Headset Advisor

Anyone who’s in the market for a new Bluetooth headset for work and entertainment should check out a couple of new wireless models from Poly. 

Poly has been coming out with several new products recently that not only includes their staple products in the business headset space, but audio and video conferencing products as well. 

In this blog, I’m going to focus on two new entrants into the Poly lineup. Specifically, I’m going to compare the new Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC against the latest new model, the Poly Voyager 4320. Both are double ear Bluetooth headsets designed to work with your computer and mobile devices.

Though they both have similar features, there are a few differences including the price. I’ll go over the similarities, and the differences. 

Voyager 4320 UC on desk with phone

Before I jump into this Bluetooth headset comparison, I did want to mention that I recorded a Youtube video here on this very subject. Watching the video will allow you to not only see the models, but you’ll be able to hear how they sound, and how well they do to eliminate unwanted background noise. So make sure to check out my video below. 

Still with me? Great! Then let’s get to comparing these two new Poly Bluetooth headsets so we can see what they’re all about. 

If you’re like a lot of people these days, you’ve found yourself on more conference calls and video calls than ever before. Words like Zoom, Teams, Meet etc. have found their way into our regular conversations. That wasn’t the case just a short time ago, but here we are. 

Along with the increased use of Softphones and video conferencing is the need for a good quality headset. Yes, there are alternatives to using a headset, but in my experience, a good quality headset will deliver far better sound quality when compared to the alternatives.

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC and the Voyager 4320 are two excellent models well worth your time to consider that will work flawlessly on your next conference call.

Perhaps the best way to compare these two Bluetooth headsets is to break down the features that are common to both, and make note of any features that are unique to only one of these two models. So let’s start with how they’re similar. 

Commonalities 

Below are some points that illustrate how these two wireless headsets are similar. 

Wearing style

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC and the Voyager 4320 are both dual ear headsets. Both are worn over the head, and cover both ears. 

Connectivity

Both models are designed to work with a computer (think Softphones, Zoom, Teams, Meet, RingCentral apps), as well as with your mobile devices. 

The Voyager Focus 2 UC and the Voyager 4320 both use the same computer dongle in the BT700. The BT700 dongle, which is the upgraded version from the former BT600, is designed to provide longer wireless range. In our tests, it does deliver on the longer range promise, albeit not a lot, but longer than the former. 

Microphone technology

Both the Focus 2 UC and the Voyager 4320 utilize a specialized noise cancellation technology referred to as Acoustic Fence. This is a microphone technology that’s aimed at eliminating unwanted background noise so your callers get a cleaner, clearer sound.

We’ve tested this several times, and without a doubt, it’s an improvement over standard noise cancelling headset microphones. If you work in an environment where noise is a factor, such as working from home (dogs, children, landscapers, doorbells etc), or in an office with co-workers, then this is a feature you should put on your must have list. 

Wireless range

The Voyager Focus 2 UC, and the Voyager 4320 are both designed to deliver up to 164 feet of wireless talk range. At Headset Advisor, we use a general rule of thumb of taking the manufacturer's stated range, and cutting it in half.

In this case, these two wireless headsets should provide about 80 feet of wireless range. True to form, that’s about the distance we were able to get before the signal began breaking up.

Even though you might read a spec sheet that makes a claim of 164 feet, you’d be smart to scale back your range expectations to half. If that figure satisfies your needs, then you won’t be disappointed once you begin using your new headset. 

Busy lights

Both models have a built-in busy light that alerts those around you when on a live call. This feature is designed to help avoid interruptions.

Both models can be used as a wired headset when the battery needs to be recharged. Simply plug in the included USB cable, and you can continue to use the headset while the battery is being charged. Surprisingly, not many Bluetooth headsets can do this, and it’s a nice feature to have. It serves as a form of insurance should your battery unexpectedly need recharging or die on you while on a call. 

Another area where the Voyager Focus 2 UC and the Voyager 4320 are the same is in the warranty. Both models come with a full 2-year warranty which is solid. And, because both models are from Poly, you can rest assured that there’s a reputable company that’s behind that warranty. 

The Voyager Focus 2 UC operates using Bluetooth version 5.1, where the Voyager 4320 uses Bluetooth version 5.2. Being that I’m not an expert in the differences between Bluetooth versions, I can only do a simple Google search to try and understand the benefits of v 5.2. Here’s what a Google query returned. 

“With Bluetooth 5.2, larger amounts of information can finally be transmitted over lower bandwidth and at lower power. ... This takes the Dual Audio feature farther, allowing for multiple connections of bluetooth devices to single sources.”  

Hopefully that makes sense and is helpful in some way. All in all, I doubt the typical user will notice any difference between these two devices.  

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC weighs 6.17 ounces 

The Poly Voyager 4320 weighs 5.17 ounces 

I’d be splitting hairs if I were to say that there’s a meaningful difference in weight between them. In a practical sense, they both weigh about the same.

Will you notice a weight difference when you put them on? Probably not because both models are very lightweight and comfortable.

Even though the Voyager Focus 2 UC weighs slightly more, I’d have to say that it has the edge on the 4320 for comfort. Much of that can be attributed to the suspended headband cushion and the memory foam ear cushions.

Don’t get me wrong, they’re both comfortable, even if worn all day. If I had to pick one, it’d be the Focus 2 UC.  

How are they different?

The Voyager Focus 2 UC provides up to 19 hours of talk time, and up to 24 hours of listening time.  

The Voyager 4320 by comparison is designed to deliver up to 24 hours of talk time, and up to 47 hours of listening time.  

Even though the talk time favors the 4320, it’s not a huge difference. However, when you look at the difference in listening time, that advantage widens notably.

It goes from the Voyager Focus 2 UC of 24 hours, to the 4320 at 47 hours. That’s a dramatic difference, one that can make a big difference if you spend a lot of time listening to music or videos.  

In terms of battery recharge time, the 4320 takes a mere 1.6 hours for a full charge, and after 15 minutes on the charger, you’ll get 10 hours of listening time. Not bad at all. The Voyager Focus 2 UC recharge time is 2 hours.  

USB A / USB C

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC uses a micro USB port on the headset and a USB A connector for recharging, or using while recharging.  

The Voyager 4320 uses a USB C cable, which is deemed to be an upgrade from what the Focus 2 UC utilizes.  

We’ve had many comments about the Micro USB / USB A cable used on the Focus 2 UC. The comments consistently were critical about Poly’s choice of using that cable design.

Most would agree that the movement is away from USB A and onto using USB C which   provides faster data transfer speeds, and can conveniently plug in either direction, unlike the USB A version.  

ANC (Active Noise Cancellation)

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC comes with ANC. This is a great feature that helps to eliminate unwanted room noise for the headset wearer. The Acoustic Fence feature, while also eliminates unwanted noise, it’s designed to give your   callers a cleaner, clearer call. ANC allows the person wearing the headset to not be distracted by the noise around them, which in turn, allows them to better concentrate on their work, or music or whatever.  

If you have a choice of using a headset that has ANC, or one that doesn’t, clearly the model that has it is an advantage. In this case, the Voyager 4320 doesn’t have it, but it’s important to remember that the 4320 isn’t intended to be a full-blown premium headset.

It’s designed to have a nice compliment of features, but not all-inclusive. That said, the  advantage here clearly rests with the Voyager Focus 2 UC because it comes with this useful feature.  

Price difference

The Poly Voyager Focus 2 UC has a suggested selling price of $329.95 without the charging base, and $349.95 with it.  

The Voyager 4320 price comes in at $249.95 with a charging base, and $229.95 without it.  

Though there are many similarities, and a few differences between these two models, the price gap between them runs about $100.00.

Final thoughts

Without a doubt, you cannot go wrong with either of these two fantastic Bluetooth headsets. The Voyager Focus 2 UC is an amazing headset that might even border on a product where art meets technology. It has great sound, a high-end microphone, Active Noise Cancellation so you can concentrate better.

It has a suspended headband pad, and memory foam ear cushions that help to take comfort to a whole new level. Not to mention smart sensor technology, auto microphone mute and a long list of impressive features. A good value? Absolutely!  

The Voyager 4320 isn’t an undesirable headset even when compared to the more expensive relative. Keeping in mind the 4320 is geared to be a more budget friendly model, I have to say Poly did an amazing job to deliver a tastefully designed, richly appointed, great sounding comfortable headset. Frankly, you can’t argue about the price either. It’s truly priced well considering everything you get.  

To me, it comes down to what you need. Do you work in an environment where noise is a constant? Or, do you work in an area where noise isn’t a big deal?

If noise is a big deal, then you’ll want to lean towards the Focus 2 UC. Yes you’ll pay a little more, but once you use this headset, you’ll quickly forget about that extra hundred dollars you paid over the 4320.  

On the other hand, if your work environment isn’t all that noisy, you simply can’t go wrong with the Voyager 4320. It doesn’t have the ANC feature, but in a quiet environment, you really don’t need it. Along the way, you can save the money, and maybe treat yourself to a nice dinner with the savings.
