In February, Plantronics announced updated versions of four of its headsets line which featured noise cancelling technology. Yesterday, they announced the Voyager Focus UC, a new offering that has this same technology, but which is a wireless model.

As more enterprises embrace the open plan office design, the need for better headsets with noise cancelling capabilities should be at the forefront of their UC deployment. The headset plays an increasingly vital role when it comes to communications and productivity.

Plantronics recognise this rather underserved gap in the market and are capitalising on the challenges of open plan office spaces, offering devises that solve the issues of noise and distraction.

The Voyager Focus UC is the first wireless stereo headset to include active noise-cancellation technology.
