If you’re working in an office, you’ll likely be familiar with some of the annoyances that go with it when it comes to ambient noise be it nattering colleagues, clacking keyboards or some oblivious janitor using the hoover even when you’re attempting to get work done. Plantronics’ latest business oriented headset the Voyager Focus UC aims to address all these annoyances with noise cancelling tech and quite a bit of comfort too.

The Voyager Focus UC has a mostly conventional design though it has several refinements to make it more comfier to use and more intuitive as well. The ‘UC’ stands for Unified Communication and the headphones have Class 1 Bluetooth to pair seamlessly via with up to eight compatible devices like your smartphone or tablet though it has a Bluetooth dongle if you aim to use it with a PC.IMG_0276 (Custom)

What makes it interesting is that the Voyager Focus UC packs Dynamic Mute Alert tech that mutes itself when the headphones were taken off and unmutes it when you put it back on. You’re also able to answer calls by wearing the headphones and it intelligently mutes any media you’re listening to when you make and take calls.

Rather than the usual metal, the Voyager Focus UC has an elastic leatherette headband that helps to suspend the headphone on your bonce comfortably

The boom mike lets you make calls and depending on orientation lets you wear it on your left or right ear as you see fit. The headband is aluminium though it’s suspended by means of an elastic headband on your head to avoid the usual feeling of donning a vice on your bonce while the swivelling leatherette padded headphones are cushioned for both comfort and passive noise insulation.

The Voyager Focus UC’s Active noise cancelling tech helps to mute external noises and the built-in battery offers up to 12 hours of talk time before needing a recharge via a micro USB port. It ships for RM1,518 along with a charging dock though it’s currently not sold in any retail stores as it’s intended for enterprise use.
