Plantronics Savi W440 – Listening to Audio Books and Music

Plantronics Savi W440

Plantronics Savi W440

We have always written about the strict business applications for the Plantronics Savi W440. It is often used as an interface for Microsoft Lync or other softphones on your computer, and the audio quality is excellent for use with voice-to-text applications such as Dragon Speech Recognition Software.

But, if you run a home business or want to listen to audio books or other types of audio instructional material while roaming away from your laptop or desktop PC, this is an excellent tool. The wireless connection from earpiece to base allows you have reception up to 300 feet from your PC.  And if you want to join in on web conferencing applications, the noise cancelling microphone allows you to be clearly heard by your listeners without interfering background noise breaking in.
