Here's a link to the Poly Sync 10 that I'll be discussing in this Podcast episode:
In this episode of the Headset Advisor Podcast, you'll learn about the Poly Sync 10, which is the entry model in the Sync family of speakerphones. Among the things discussed include:
For openers, the Poly Sync 10 is the entry level model in the Poly Sync family of speakerphones. Here's a quick comment about the different models that make up this family.
So how does the Sync 10 connect exactly? This is a wired USB speakerphone that simply plugs into a computer via a USB A plug. If your computer is newer, and uses USB C, no worries, because the Sync 10 comes with a USB A to USB C adapter. Once plugged in, it's really plug and play from there which makes using it a breeze (cool breeze that is)
This is a fukll duplex speakerphone, which means you can have a natural conversation, just as though talking face to face. You have the ability to interject comments while the other party is talking, which is a simplified way of explaining Full Duplex. Without this feature, you'd have to wait for the other party to stop talking before you could say anything. Not natural really.
The sound quality on this speakerphone, to me, is mixed. In terms of the voice audio quality, it's really good. The sound is sharp, and clear. But, when unwanted background noise is present, it struggles to eliminate it. In our tests, we could easily hear the background noise which leads me to conclude that Poly could improve this speakerphone by improving the noise canceling ability.
The Poly Sync 10 is IP64 rated, which means that it's water and dust resistant. This means that if it were to be submerged in water, it probably wouldn't come back from that. But, a sprinkle of dust or water here and there, and it should handle that just fine. And we all have dust in our environments, and some of us even break into a sweat when having our annual performance reviews with our boss. I guess that makes the Poly Sync 10 sweatproof too.
The price of the Sync 10 is around $110.00, which is about right for this speakerphone. Yes, you could get a Jabra Speak 410, or 510, but you'd pay more. And, would you really get more? I, for one, like the looks of this speakerphone, and it sounds great, just not in a noise room. So if you work in a reasonably quiet area, and need a hands free speakerphone, this is one that should seriously be on your short list.
