Audio

Savi 8210 and 8240/8245 are monaural headsets. Savi 8220 is a stereo headset.

Mono headsets are useful in the office when the user wants to remain connected with what’s happening around them.

Stereo headsets allow the user to focus better. Savi 8220 stereo headsets also feature active noise cancellation (ANC).

Connectivity

Savi 8200 Office headsets offer DECT and Bluetooth connectivity. Savi 8200 UC headsets only offer DECT connectivity.

All the Savi 8200 headsets connect to their base via DECT, which enables an extended wireless range of 180ft in a typical office or 590ft unobstructed.

The base for the Savi 8200 Office can also connect to smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. Note that it’s not the headset that supports Bluetooth — it’s the base.

All the bases connect via cable to a PC or desk phone.

Poly Savi 8240 Wearing Styles

Wearing Style

Savi 8200 series headsets come with two different options for wearing style.

Savi 8210/8220 headsets are lightweight with a comfortable, padded headband for wearing over the head.

Savi 8240/8245 headsets are smaller and convertible, giving you three options for wearing: headband, neckband, and earhook. These headsets are ultra-lightweight, because they’re smaller.

Microsoft Compatible

All the Savi 8200 models are available in a Microsoft compatible version.

Microsoft compatible means that the headset supports full call control with services, including Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business.

Hot Swap Battery

Savi 8245 gives you unlimited talk time with a hot swap battery. How does that work?

The base has a battery charging bay in it. The headset comes with two batteries.

One of the batteries goes into the headset, one goes into the charging bay.

When you’re in a conversation or listening to media and the battery is running low, you can hot swap the batteries. In other words, you can keep on talking or listening while changing batteries.

Put the empty battery in the base, so it can charge. You keep on talking — no limits.
