How to Mute a Call with the Plantronics Savi W730

March 23, 2017 by Steve Lopian

When it comes to work, we are all busy. A lot of times we are locked down to our desks for hours working on large projects. Other times we are on exhaustingly long phone calls that we think may never end!

No matter what the cause may be, it is always a good idea to get up every once in a while to stretch or even just to break up the monotony of the day. What allows you to do this? Wireless headsets!

Being able to get up from your desk while on a call can be extremely convenient. Even if it is just to run to the printer, or even walk circles around your desk. There is something liberating about not being tied down to your desk; literally.

The best part about having a wireless headset is being able to keep it on at all times to answer calls away from your desk, and with most wireless headsets these days, you can go pretty far! But what happens if you’re on a call and the environment around you becomes too noisy? You don’t have your desk phone near you to place the call on hold, and you can’t say “call I call you back” so what do you do?

Well, not too many people know this, but a growing number of wireless headsets will allow you to mute your call! This is not common knowledge because headsets don’t really have a “mute” button on them, but with the right headset, you CAN do it!

Let’s take the Plantronics Savi W730 for example. This is a high-end wireless headset that can connect to your computer, desk phone and cell phone all at once! This headset also happens to have the ability to mute calls with the press of a button!

When mute is activated, you will hear three high tones. These tones will repeat every 60 seconds while the mute option is activated. You will still be able to hear the caller on the other end while mute is active.

When you are ready to take your call off mute, you simply hold the volume button in the up position for the same 1.5 seconds. When the call is taken off mute you will hear three low tones, letting you know that you are back on the line and ready to talk!

So the next time you are stuck on a long call and really need a cup of coffee or if you need to take a stroll around the office to stretch your legs, you can feel good knowing that at any moment, you can block out any unwanted noise right from your headset!

Do you have a wireless headset? Are you able to mute calls with one touch? If it’s not the Plantronics Savi W730, then what is it? We want to know!
