What is ANC and how it can really help you!

Posted by UC Zilla, Headset Specialist on Jun 19th 2019

Help!  I work in a noisy office and can't hear my customers on the phone!  What can I do?

This is a big problem for many employees who work in close proximity to others and are either distracted by someone else's talking, or simply can't hear their customers very well due to nearby conversations.  So what's a person to do?

Lexair has the answer!  Poly (Formerly Plantronics) has recently introduced a variety of headset models that offer a "close conversation limiting" feature that works in conjunction with ANC (Active Noise Canceling).  This is really the "wow factor" when your environment is so noisy with Nancy chatting next to you and Burt and Bill holding a conversation in the hall which is close to your desk or cubical.  People who work in collaborative spaces or open offices will also find that Poly headsets with ANC may be the answer to their noisy environment problems.

One headset model in particular with this special feature is the brand new Blackwire C7225 USB-A Stereo Headset.



The Blackwire 7225 is a corded boomless UC&C headset with either USB-A or USB-C connectivitity.  With extra cushy ear pads and a cushioned headband, this headset can be worn all day in comfort.

Some of the features include:

• On-demand active and passive-noise canceling block out distractions.
• Dedicated PC/Mac connectivity with either universal USB-A or USB-C type connectivity.
• A choice of black or white color finishes.
• Four microphones detect noise from all directions, separate noise from the speaker’s voice,
with digital signal processing (DSP) to deliver a natural voice sound.

Another great feature offered with this headset is the Online Indicator on the USB connector which shows Green when available and Red when busy.
