Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a home office.I have been sent this to try and rate by Plantronics. I have been using it since the day after I got it and like it a lot more than using my ear bud. It is very clear and the people I talk to are telling me it is like being in the same room while talking. It is very easy to pair with my phone and very easy to use the controls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Mobile Turned Desktop!This is a great product if you aren't working through your desktop or company VoIP calling system. It makes it super convenient to switch to a desktop experience using your smartphone while working from home which I love. LOVE the charging pad for your smartphone as it is being used as well, just a bummer you have to take your phone case off to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product with one missing featureI was excited about the opportunity to evaluate the new Elara 60. I’ve been using a Focus UC since its introduction and consider it the best headset I have ever owned. The addition of a physical keypad and wireless charging seemed like a great upgrade.Unfortunately, the addition of the new features was accompanied by the loss of a key function; the ability to stream audio from my computer. I tried pairing the headset to my Focus UC adapter but apparently it will only support two connections. Adding computer audio required disabling the Elara base. In the final analysis computer audio was more important to me than the Elara base functions so I reverted to my Focus UC. Elara 60 still delivers the great Focus audio experience. The keypad and display are an improvement over placing and answering calls on the device. The wireless charging dock makes it easy to keep your phone charged. Users who don’t require computer audio will find it a useful addition to their desk. It just did not work for my headset application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have!!!I am so spoiled to this... I have it paired to my cell phone and my laptop. I work from home so having the wireless freedom to be able to take calls comfortably and not have that "speaker phone background" noise on calls is great! I play my music with my music streaming app. The battery is excellent. The only thing I have a slight issue with is I have to remove my cell case for wireless charging to work. It's not a big concern, I've had to do this with some other wireless chargers too.Speaker Phone is great on this. I've asked callers and they can't tell when I have the base on speaker phone. Sound quality is superb!I also have two cell phones (one work and one personal. I am able to fit both on the stand which is extremely convenient. (Only one will charge at a time of course)Also in the picture I attached, I happened to click it right as the time was changing... The display looks perfect, no overlapping numbers or anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cell Phone Base StationThe Poly Elara 60 was easy to configure and use. I particularly liked the ability to dial from the base station rather than having to use the phone. The headset had good music quality as well as handling voice calls. You can use the headset to pause your music as needed. It automatically pauses if you take off the headset. I couldn't find a way to skip to the next track, but that might be possible. The wireless charging pad is a nice touch, though it would not work through my wife's heavy Otterbox case. This is the perfect unit for someone who is on their phone quite a bit at home or work. The ability to listen to music or podcasts in between is a definite bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Not What I Would WantI am a heavy Plantronics user, however, this product doesn't do it for meI received this device as part of fanfare. I have used this device for a week. Cons - - Does not reconnect automatically with phone. Need to pair every time you step away- Does not store contacts- Does not seamlessly switch headphone between unit and phone-Not sure why I want to dial from keypad when I can push a button to dial from a screenPros -Nice cell phone stand on my desk

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Poly Elara! Batman has a collaboration tool?I am a longtime fan of the Plantronics Voyager FOCUS UC headphones because every word of their description for these headphones is the truth:"Offers seamless connectivity to your PC or smartphone, and integration with leading UC applicationsWireless range of up to 98 feet"Understanding the headphones and their capabilities I am asking myself "Why do I want or need the Poly Elara 60 Series unit?" and I have to really think about that. As a guy who supports a vast number users (1k+ of phone and collaboration tools I recognize the need for ease and intuitiveness of a workplace tool. So let's go thru the checklist of Pros and Cons:ProsAesthetically a beautiful device for one's desk. It is simply a handsome unit. The screen is crisp and clear and the keyes are really clean looking. Single point charging station (wired and wireless phone charging and Voyager Focus UC headset ) 1) Headphone recharge station - it has got that covered with an attractive looking base that also charges your phone with wireless or corded charging. That is a super nice feature. No more losing separate phone chargers. 2) Works with Voyager Focus US headphones with built in charger and holder but not limited to an option handset or it is stated in the How To Video for the device that a USB hardwired headset would work. Well the USB headset that I had did NOT work with the unit I had so I am not sure if it is a version of the base or headphone that would allow me to use wired. 3) Speaker Sound Quality - probably one of the best sound speaker phones I have ever heard. No not an entertainment type quality of the various bluetooth speakers out on the market but crisp clear and a nice sound for a speaker phone. The sound controls are independent, so the base will amplify what it gets from the phone. This may be an issue if users don't know to turn the phone up on the phone sound controls. NeutralCollaboration I dont see how this item is a collaboration Although I am familiar to Teams I have not been able to test within the enterprise environmentConsValue - I don't understand where the value is to be truthful. Working in IT and understanding that if it isn't making you money it is an expenditure that gets highly scrutinized. I don't know if everyone in the environment would be privy to owning one of these. Using Plantronics Focus UC Headphones with incredible wireless range of 98' and sound but to connect to the base I haven't been able to extend the range. That is right it seems that the Plantronics proprietary dongle seems to work far better than the limitations of bluetooth. Which begs the question why not build that option in with bluetooth in general? Maybe because who is leaving their phone unattended while going to the break room for a coffee? #me Lets talk about Bluetooth here. My phone seemed to work better on bluetooth with the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC headphones than the Ply Elara 60 Series base. I noticed taht if I had ever connected the headphones to my phone and the phone connected to them first that it was not a good transition from headphones to base and back headphones....so in theory the equipment proved my point here.. what is the value of this base? Also I thought at the beginning I needed to install the Poly Elara app but you do not. Either way it does not improve or detract from performance. The only two things I noticed about installing the app was to update firmware on the base and headset and to run in the background to have a small icon displaying that you are connected. So in the end would I recommend this item? Well for executives who want a nice base unit for aesthetics yes but for everyday use I would need to see the specific scenario that would bring value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Smart IdeaIdeal for small or tenant offices with no on site telephony or for home office working.Nice small footprint which provides both wireless & wired charging.Quick and easy set up and works with Poly & Teams Apps when downloaded, call quality is high with the Focus UC docked, music playback is slick with the media option, might be good to see messages displayed on the head unit also, downloaded the latest firmware today and its a little flaky but seems stable again now after a reboot or two.
