Plantronics Savi 8210 - headset is rated3.89 out of5 by9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Main features - great but NOT multimedia streamingI am using plantronics wireless headsets for many years (starting from C55 and then savi 7xx series) and they were always good though the latest 8220 which I bough because of stereo headphones with good quality multimedia streaming clearly has either hardware or firmware issues.When I connect my phone (Iphone SE with latest 12.4 ios) and stream music via bluetooth via multimedia mode (best quality) I have constant distortions and quality issues: phone sits within 70 cm from the base and I am sitting at the same desk where both phone and base are. When I try to walk around within 20 meters quality drops and connection becames unstable from the first meters... I tried it both at home and in the office - same result.Firmware is 38.15 (latest that plantronics hub offered)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but could be improved..Received and set up was easy. Quick start guide provided details on set up and pairing, which was very easy (easier than some speakers). I should note I did not set up the headset to work through my computer. I am also not typically a headset-anything user (gaming, phone, etc.) so I have a bit more unfamiliarity with headset usage than some. It’s been years since I’ve used a Bluetooth. Headset extremely comfortable. Lots of points of adjustment, such as each ear can swiveling, and padded. Lightweight so could wear for up to hours at a time, though they are leather so can get a bit warm resting against the ear. Boom mike allows for either side of head. There is an on-off switch in the headset. Buttons on the base show which device the headset connected with (options are computer, cellphone, and, if hooked in with optional adapters, a landline. I did not test that option as I don’t have a landline or VOIP). The volume worked well, as there is a volume slider on the headset or use the phone. Test calls indicated that people picked up no background noise (this included doing dishes, running water and the like). That was great. However, range of the headset was touted to be impressive and maybe I expected more but I got 100 ft and call would go garbled in the test call side and then suddenly hang up. This was consistent. If I stayed within that range I was fine. There was no warning on my end, no beeping or anything to warn me call fidelity was lost and it would hang up. I would have liked a beep or some warning. Calling and pickup was a little frustrating, as the set up was intuitive but not this aspect. With iPhone marked as connected and headset on, I expected a call I was making to ring through the headset and go through immediately via the headset. This never happened. Despite being securely connected before dialing, calls would never ring through on headset and the moment someone would pick up, it would flip back to iPhone. The no ringing feedback meant I did not know if they picked up and with it reverting to iPhone upon connection, there was some scrambling so I could hear them. If someone called me, it would ring through the headset (awesome) but immediately revert to the iPhone upon picking up the headset and dropping the mic. Found this a bit disappointing. On a personal level, because I’m out of habit of wearing a headset for anything, I found myself disliking how I sounded through the headset. My voice would be very muffled and distorted, making me try and focus too much on what I thought I said rather than a conversation. Did not affect the caller. This was probably just a personal thing but it was distracting enough I stopped using the headset for a while. Overall review: I think this would be a great headset for anyone who anticipates being a heavy user of a headset. It’s comfortable and has good reviews for test listeners. Someone else may be more dedicated to investigating the connection switching for calling/pickup. For a casual user like myself, who either uses the phone on speaker or does own a bluetooth (somewhere), the issue of connection switcharoos was frustrating. It kept me from using for casual calls and the range dropping calls in my house also kept me from using the headset for long dedicated calls, because apparently I like to move around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound. not a fan of the base...I received this from the FANWARE program.. perfect timing since my previous headset broke. These can do hard line phone, BT, and PC USB. Its really nice since the PC USB connection is still wireless with DECT. Great sound, comfortable to wear, fairly easy controls. The volume ring is a bit small, so its harder to grab, but not bad.. The BT connection has been on and off.. still working that one out. Overall its a great headset, my only real complaint is that I find it hard to get the headset back on the stand...it takes some work to line it up just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable but several issuesProduct has issues blocking immediate voice. People are informing they cannot hear me when I'm talking, I have to constantly move the mic so that people can hear me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Savi 8200 ReviewGood:The Savi 8220 headphones are great for Skype meetings. Sound is clear and crisp. I wouldn't say these are hi-fidelity headphones but for the purpose of phone conversations, they are excellent. I did not have to mess around with the base unit. ANC: Noise cancelling was ok. I can still hear people around me talking but at lower levels with the ANC on.Wireless Range: WOW!!! The range is absolutely fantastic. I could pretty much walk anywhere in the house and still have an excellent connection without any drops.Battery life was also good as it pretty much lasts all day for me.Not so Good:Power button could be bigger in size and also the location of the sliding button is not convenient. When a phone call is being made from the cell phone, the audio/source button has to be pressed to connect. It's also kind of inconvenient to press it every time I need to play a video on the phone. As soon as a video finishes playing, it disconnects. I have to tap the audio on the base to connect again to listen to the audio for the next clip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good if you sit next to your phoneIf you sit next to your phone, this is a great device. If you move away from your phone, the ringtone is so low you will struggle to know a call is coming in. And there is no way to change this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not RecommendedI purchased the 8220-M almost immediately after it came out and unfortunately I got bit by some major issues. For PC calls, the headset would constantly drop out making it almost impossible to hold a conversation. When I would connect to mobile, the call quality was ok, but the side buttons never worked reliably. In one case, I pushed the side button thinking I had hung up, but I was still on the call and my customer heard us discussing internal matters.After being fed up with this, we tried searching for an updated firmware to correct the issues, and there was nothing for several months to address this.We spent a lot of money to ensure we got a good quality headset thinking we would upgrade the entire office at some point, but we simply had to move on as this just wasn't going to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent productI work from home and this headset is perfect. I can go anywhere in my home or my yard while still connected clearly. I can do this with PC based communication (Gotomeeting, Skype, etc.) or with Bluetooth on my phone (I just have to leave my phone near the base station).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DecentI tested the Savi 8220 on both my mobile phones and on Discord. The sound quality was decent but subpar to the Plantronics Voyager series headsets I have especially with music. The mic was decent but required some tinkering with settings in Windows and Discord so my friends could hear me. The one thing that I really noticed the Savi excelling at was the active noise cancellation. With it on, it drowned out the HVAC above me, which I didn't realize was quite as loud as it apparently is until it was cancelled out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartest headphones I've known!!I've been using these for about 2 weeks now and really put them through the ringer. First off they were so simple to set up and hook up to all my devices which I was worried about before I received the product. There's a diagram that makes it so simple so I encourage following that. Now once plugged in and charged, I started having FUN with the most comfortable headphones on my ears; so soft and supple!! I realized I could switch seamlessly from my desk phone to watching a movie on my computer and then to my cell phone when a call came in just with a click of the top buttons! The 'Answer' button is nicely located, the 'Mute' button I'll need a little getting used to and you can also adjust the volume too. Best thing is I can do all that from the headphones. Didn't have to switch headphones and tangle a bunch of wires in the process. It was nothing short of AMAZING! The SAVI 8220 is going to make my life and OCD with cords so much less stressful, my desk clean and neat as well as simple. It truly is the smartest device & headphones I've ever known! Smart Savi makes my work life less stressful, plain and simple! I almost forgot to mention how you're not confined to your desk with the wireless technology!!!! I could scream it's so wonderful!! Don't hesitate, get yourself the Savi 8220 today! I don't know how I've lived without it this long!!
