Polycom VoiceStation 500

 

The possibility of connecting the VoiceStation 500 to a mobile phone is ideal for those situations when landlines are not available. Therefore the VoiceStation 500 also houses a 2.5mm applications port. This acts as a headset connector for mobile...

There is also a data port which allows the connection of a computer modem or a fax machine to the VoiceStation 500. For those that prefer the option of having a more private conversation it is also possible to connect a phone using the data port....

Works well

 

We bought this device to use in a small conference room in our 200+ man office. The conference room had no telephone line, so we would use the VoiceStation 500 via its Bluetooth connection to our mobile phones. It worked very well, and was obviously...

It really is too expensive for what it is, but there is no competition that offers the flexibility and audio quality of the VoiceStation 500.

Works for conference calls but not with Blue Tooth

 

The Phone worked ok for conference calls but we wanted to be able to use it with a Blackberry and a Blue Tooth. We had to order an adapter which allowed us to use it with the Blackberry but we were not able to use it with the Blue Tooth.

No bluetooth with Andoid phones

 

Nice unit but it will not pair with Android phones. Apparently this is a known issue at Polycom but they haven't fixed it and don't mention it in their literature. Very disappointing.....

Bluetooth Nice, Poor Voice Quality

 

I'm in the process of searching for a new phone.

Bluetooth connection is a nice feature. Enabled use of a land-line and a handset through the same speakerphone interface

Voice quality is horrendous. I'm constantly getting complaints that people can hear me, that my voice sounds distant. I almost have to scream into this phone so that people can hear me ; Volume controls not adequate. Lowest setting not low enough....
