Plantronics' Savi Office Unified Communications headsets bridge the distinction between the audio from the desktop phone and from the PC. Leveraging DECT 6.0 for wider indoor range and reduced interference, the Savi Office products deliver high-definition audio wirelessly for PC-based media consumption or communications using the phone and the PC. Plantronics offers two different ear pieces (the WO100 and WO200) that work with the same base station (via detachable docking components). With the included Microsoft Windows application, PerSono, users can control device and application behavior when switching the headset between devices. Users can also bridge media between communication channels, as they can easily play PC audio clips to callers on the phone or bridge calls between the desktop phone and VOIP applications such as Skype or Office Communicator.
