9 Plantronics (Poly) Headset To Try
Whether you are working from the office or from home where the use of a telephone headset is required, you will never go wrong with a Plantronics headset. Here are our top picks of headsets produced by Plantronics.
Starting our list is the Plantronics Savi 8240 Wireless Headset — a Poly headset that redefined call efficiency in any workplace setup. This mono headset has three wearing options suited for a staff’s preference and comfort, has a noise-canceling mic capable of decreasing noise in the background, and a triple connectivity option. The Plantronics Savi 8240 can be used with a desk phone, softphone, or mobile phone; this makes the headset convenient for managing day-to-day office tasks with more efficiency and less hassle.
The Plantronics Savi 8240 Wireless Headset is capable of delivering up to seven hours of talk time on wireless and offers superior audio quality, thanks to the DECT technology under its hood. The whole headset weighs only around 21 grams and should be comfortable to use at extended periods.
The Plantronics CS540 Wireless Headset is known for its versatility in terms of wearability and its overall weight. This single-ear Plantronics wireless headset features two wearing options: have over-the-ear and over-the-head wearing options. This is particularly designed to ensure the headset fits a staff’s wearing preferences, which can actually help boost productivity. On a perky side, these wearing options allow those conscious of messing their hair to still be productive.
Moreover, the CS540 wireless headset checks the other boxes we like about a professional-grade headset including being able to carry out 7 hours of talk time allowing staff versatility. It’s lightweight — only weighing 21 grams making it the lightest headset in the market. Its ability to remain connected by up to 350+ feet away without losing audio quality is also impressive.
The Poly EncorePro 310-QD is a headset preferred by many call center agencies in the US (and even around the world) because of its affordability, uncompromising acoustics, and voice optimization features. This Plantronics headset also boasts a noise-canceling feature, which is a wise investment for a company running a call center operation.
However, there is really nothing much on the design of the headset; it takes the common headset design we see daily. But we like how lightweight the headset is that it makes you wonder how it can also have an adjustable boom mic and soft, replaceable ear cushions.
With the Poly EncorePro 310-QD headset, you can be sure to only have the best quality, smart features, and reliable company headset.
If you want a hybrid over-the-head headset and you don’t mind so much bulkier headsets, then the Poly Savi 7210 D might be the one for you. This Plantronics wireless headset is more powerful than the Poly EncorePro 310-QD in terms of range; it can support connectivity of up to 400 feet of roaming range and offers up to 12 hours of talk time. That means better productivity and flexibility for staff using this particular headset. Despite the bulky appearance, the Poly Savu 7210 D is comfortable to wear with an over-the-head monaural headset.
In addition, the headset comes with a noise-canceling microphone boom and DECT-certified audio for a premium listening experience. It also has one-touch control to manage whether to answer or end calls and volume adjustments.
This particular Poly headset prides itself on its versatile connectivity and Bluetooth technology. It is one of the Bluetooth headsets in the Plantronics fleet that is top tier and uncompromising in delivering professional-grade sound.
The Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Earpiece has four microphones making it perfect to take calls whenever, wherever, literally. This is mainly due to the fact that the mics are equipped with noise-canceling technology under their hood as well. The whole headset weighs 20 grams only, which is relatively lightweight and perfect for on-the-move operations. The headset’s range is 250 feet from the headset base — not as robust as the Poly Savi 7210 D. Nonetheless, it does come with its merits in other areas where it outperforms its Poly headset siblings.
Additionally, the smart sensory technology used in this earpiece will allow versatile media controls to track forward or track back, audio pause, or play. This is a Plantronics headset that comes with Bluetooth v5.0 and has a dedicated Plantronics Hub mobile app for more features.

Right off the bat, the headset features support for wideband (HD) audio, leatherette ear cushions, and a headband capable of preventing breakage.
