Poly Sync 10

Translate from : Poly Sync 10
Would you like a mobile and versatile solution for participating in meetings on Teams and Zoom? Then the Poly Sync 10 speakerphone could be something for you.

When it's that time of the year with a lot of sickness and many home working days, it is obvious to be prepared to be able to work effectively in different places. It's no secret that I was very pleasantly surprised   Poly Sync 20 speakerphone when we got the opportunity to test it. I ended up buying one myself. It has now been by my side for almost a year, and I still use it frequently.

When Poly got in touch and told me about a new little brother called Poly Sync 10, I had to try it too.

Headset vs. Speaker phone

A headset is a great tool if you are sitting in a room with talking colleagues or there is some other kind of sound in the background. Nowadays, there are even many variants with built-in noise reduction.

A speakerphone offers the advantage that several people can easily participate in an online meeting, and you can quickly sit down around a laptop and jump on a Teams or Zoom call.

If you are still sitting alone at home, it can also be more comfortable in a longer Team meeting, just to use your small Poly Sync 10 conference speaker, and participate without having to wear anything on your head.

Is meeting room equipment becoming more widespread?

Among other things, due to the new possibilities in Office 365, there is a development in the market and there is a natural need and demand for better and new solutions - especially for online meetings.

Another area is speech recognition, which is more and more in demand in relation to documentation. Here, many probably do not know that in Office365 you can actually record meetings in Danish and have them transcribed - even with an overview of which speaker said what. In addition, the result depends a lot on the quality of the microphone you record with. This is precisely why it is important to have the right equipment.

If you find speech-to-text interesting, stay tuned to TWEAK. We have made a small guide to how it works.

Testing Poly Sync 10

I have been using Sync 10 for approx. 4 weeks, among other things, at the home office and at three different hotels divided into 50+ online meetings in e.g. Google Meet and Microsoft Teams.

Sync 10 works flawlessly and has not given rise to any problems during my testing. It is easy to connect via USB, nice sound, and in every way lives up to what you can and should be able to expect from such a conference device. There is a standard USB connector on the cable, but an adapter for USB-C is also included.

On the front of the Poly Sync 10, there are touch buttons that make the conference speaker easy to operate. In the test, we received the Microsoft variant, where there is a dedicated button for Teams, which you may already know from your headset. In addition, there is an option to adjust the volume, turn the microphone on and off, and a button to answer and end calls.

Above the buttons is a small strip of LED light which conveniently lights up red when you put your microphone on mute, so you can be sure you won't be heard when you're about to pour a new cup of coffee.

The easiest way to describe the Poly speaker is to compare it to its big brother - the Poly Sync 20:

The difference between Sync 10 and Sync 20:

Do all your meetings only take place via the computer and never via your mobile phone?

If so, Sync 10 is the right choice for you. The big difference in use was that the Sync 10 cannot be connected to a mobile and it had to be connected via USB, since, unlike the Sync 20, it does not have Bluetooth or an internal battery, and since I often have conversations via mobile, the Sync 10 often in short, as I missed the option that I know from Sync 20.

However, if you are the type who has many meetings and still have to log into Teams or Google Meet on your computer, then Sync 10 is a really good choice. In other words, if you have to choose between Sync 10 or 20, it is the price and your usage scenario that are decisive, because sound and the functionality of everything else work just as well.

It can also be an advantage in medium-sized and larger companies to have as simple a solution as possible - plug n' play via USB on Sync 10, so you save on internal IT support.

Poly Sync 10 vs sync 20


The price:

If you look online, you can find a Sync 10 for around DKK 600, which is a really good price in relation to the quality.


The Sync 10 is a good speakerphone at a competitive price, and fits very well in places that hold smaller or spontaneous meetings, e.g. in huddle rooms, and do not need to connect a mobile phone. The Poly speaker is also incredibly user-friendly and easy to operate, so Sync 10 will be a good choice if you need a mobile meeting room solution for your employees.
