Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone: A Complete Review

Jessica Childres
Choosing the right speakerphone for your office can make a difference in the clarity of your calls. The sleek and powerful Poly Sync 40 speakerphone is a great choice that provides you and your coworkers with high-quality sound without taking up much space on the table or desk.
Whether you’re working from home and juggling several conference calls a day or running an office and connecting calls with branches in other cities, this is a fantastic choice
Here’s a closer look at the complete review for the best professional speakerphone.

Design and build

Built with simplicity in mind, the Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone won’t require any user training or complex setups, allowing you to get right to business. It’s easy to manage and uses a remote device management system, Poly Lens, for simple data tracking and updating.
Outside of being easy to use, this device is also made with high-quality materials, like a rechargeable Li-ion battery that supports up to 30 hours of talk time and no-slip grip pads on the bottom. You can place the speakerphone at the desired spot and trust it won’t move even with multiple people gathering around the conference table.
Design and buikd
Weighing in at just over 1 lb, the sleek design makes this an easily portable device, meaning you can move it to different conference rooms or move around your own office with ease. The base of the device acts as a cord holder, allowing you to wrap the 41-foot cord around the base when not in use to avoid tripping.
Whether you work in a modern high-rise office or a cosy home office, this Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone will look great on the conference table or desk. With a simplistic design, clearly marked control buttons, and grey materials, you can rest assured this speakerphone will be the perfect addition to any workspace.

Sound quality

Sound quality
The Poly Sync 40 sound quality is top-tier, with the bass reflex system that supports natural voice and deep base. Whether you’re hosting a call with a room full of colleagues or having a one-on-one conversation with a client, this technology helps you hear everything.
In addition to providing great audio feedback on calls, you can also use this sleek device for music. Connect via Bluetooth to your phone and listen to your favourite bands, podcasts, or audiobooks without missing a beat.
A unique feature of the Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone is the full-duplex audio technology, which focuses on the voice that’s talking while cancelling out background noise. If you’re hosting a conference call in the middle of an office and have colleagues working and speaking to each other a few feet away, this device will mask the background noise and focus entirely on what you’re saying. This technology makes this device a fantastic option for large offices.
With a three-microphone array, you can rest assured that your clients or business partners on the other end of the call can hear you loud and clear. With echo reduction and volume control, you can confidently complete any conversation or presentation without worrying about how you sound on the other end of the call.


There are multiple ways to connect to the Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone. When you’re using this device to listen to your favourite band, you can simply connect via Bluetooth and control the music directly from your phone. You can use the volume buttons on the device to turn the music up or down and even stop the music altogether.
You can stay connected on your phone to conduct business phone calls through the device and allow the three-microphone array to pick up your voice while cancelling background distractions and echoes. With a speaker bandwidth of 75Hz to 20 kHz, you have the freedom to move around your office with your phone when you’re using Bluetooth and maintain your connection. This is perfect for anyone who is always on the move or active while working.
You can use the combined USB-A and USB-C cable attached to the device if you need to connect directly to a laptop or desktop while using the speakerphone. This gives you an immediate connection and might work better if you’re in an office full of other staff members.
The HP EliteBook 860 16-inch G9 Notebook PC is a hardworking laptop that can help you with all of your personal and professional needs. Boasting 16GB of memory, a large and crisp screen, and a num pad keyboard, this device has it all. It also comes with Wolf Pro Security to keep all your files secure, giving you the confidence you need to work on classified projects or contracts.
The Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone is compatible with this device, making these two a great pair for any office or home workspace.

Battery life

The Poly Sync 40 battery life is quite impressive as it boasts a rechargeable Li-ion battery. It provides up to 30 hours of talk time, giving you the confidence you need to lead even the most intense conference calls.
The long-lasting battery helps you focus on what really matters and gives you the freedom to talk to clients and business partners all day. It takes less than 5 hours to completely charge the battery, meaning you can plug in the speakerphone at the end of the day and find a fully charged and ready device the next morning.
While this speakerphone provides a strong battery as it is, there are a few things you can do to preserve the battery life. When you’re in between calls or know you won’t need to device for several hours, it’s best to turn it off. Although it has a standby mode, turning it off will prevent the battery from draining.
You can also keep the volume at a reasonable level and avoid using the speakerphone to play music while you’re waiting for more conference calls. While this device can certainly handle playing your favourite podcasts or audiobooks, using other tools, such as the Poly Voyager Free 60+ UC Carbon Black Earbuds, can help you save the battery on the speakerphone.
The Poly Voyager Earbuds also contain in-ear technology and soft inserts that feel comfortable even after hours of use. They provide high-quality audio feedback, making these a great alternative to listening to your music or podcasts during the work day.
Using the comfortable earbuds will save the battery on your speakerphone and give you the freedom to walk around the office or your workspace while enjoying your music. They come with a touchscreen charging case and fit in any bag or purse, making them a great addition to anyone who frequently travels.


This easy-to-use speakerphone has several buttons on the device itself and also supports control from connected devices like a cellphone. The integrated buttons on the speakerphone include on/off, call/end call, mute, Bluetooth, volume up and down, and a programmable button to help you access shortcuts.
The buttons are clearly labelled and respond to touch, making them easy to use even during a call. In addition, the sleek device features a green backlight that looks great in any office. It lets you know that your device is on and ready to go, preventing any guesswork when figuring out if it’s on or off.
If you’re using the speakerphone in conjunction with your cellphone, you can control the volume, accept or end calls, and use a speed dial function all from your phone. You’ll have the freedom to place calls from one end of the room, even if the device is centrally located on the other end of the room.
In addition to these great features, the IT department will love that it uses Poly Lens as a remote management system. They can install new updates, fix bugs, and address any issues without pulling apart the whole device.


Whether you work in a corporate office or from home, having the right tools is imperative. The Poly Sync 40 Speakerphone is an invaluable tool for any office as it provides a reliable connection, high-quality audio, and easy-to-use functionality.
The integrated sound technology blocks out background noises and eliminates echoes, making this a wonderful choice for a large office building with many employees. You’ll no longer have to worry about the background conversations picking up during your conference call, giving you the confidence you need to focus on your presentation or pitch.
You can hear the voices on the other end clearly with quality audio playback, regardless of the amount of bass coming through. The ability to double as a speaker for music or podcasts makes this product that much better.
With 30 hours of call time, this device can handle multiple conference calls, an episode of your favourite podcast, and play music in a single day. You can use this one device for all your needs, eliminating the need for multiple speakerphones throughout the office.
These great features come in a lightweight frame, giving you the portability you need when travelling for work or hosting multiple conference calls throughout the office.
