The Poly Sync 20 is ideal for remote workers, educators, small and large business professionals, families and friends connecting online, or anyone who wishes to leave bad quality sound from their laptop or mobile device behind them. With its small format and seamless Bluetooth integration, it can double up as a music speaker and stream your favourite tracks when it is not used as the ultimate conference call sound companion.

"This is an incredible little device and it has become a lifesaver for meetings and even sessions where I am presenting. It allows me the flexibility to move around my office space without the sound quality of my conversations being affected," said Rakesh Parbhoo, CEO at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa. "It is one of the few devices that you can switch from business use to personal use seamlessly. As a family, we have connected it to a phone to have a group call with relatives abroad without having to battle with passing a phone around. All you have to do is connect it, pop it on a table, and you are good to go."

Its small form factor ensures ultimate mobility, and it can move from the home office to the boardroom in your laptop bag. On-the-fly meetings with multiple participants no longer require teams to have to jockey for space in front of a machine to ensure their voices are being picked up. And teachers can move between their desk and blackboard or smartboard without the fear of the sound being cut out or voices being muffled. This makes it perfect for hybrid environments where there are in-person and online participants.

According to Parbhoo, with its easy one-touch buttons, you can mute calls and control the volume directly from the device without the need to manage multiple environments with your mouse. An external USB jack also transforms it into a power bank, from which you can quickly charge your phone or a mobile device. Also, the downloadable application allows you to customise its functionality or control it directly from your phone.

With a recommended retail price at around the R3 000 mark, it outstrips the cost of many high-quality speakers and headphones and as a result of its multifunction uses, it helps you tailor down the number of devices you need. The Poly Sync family is fully compatible with leading video conferencing providers, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, BlueJeans, LogMeIn, Google and Amazon.

“Aesthetically it is neat and a great looking tool to have on your desk, and it strips away the concept of 'being wired for sound' because it is so easy to pack up and take with you wherever you go. The only problem I have with it is that everyone in my family now also wants one," ends Parbhoo.
