I do not have a headset in front of me right now, but I wanted to make a quick query to find out if there is a way to not have the headset shut off audio immediately when there is silence.
I love the headset, but this one feature annoys me. If there is silence, then the headset seems to disconnect the audio. Short snips of audio do not come through. Only when there is sustained audio being sent to the headset will it turn on.
I would really like to know if there is a way to disable this. I can live with shorter battery life.
Welcome to Poly community.
Could you please check if your PC has Intel® Smart Sound Technology for USB audio installed?
After disabling Intel® Smart Sound Technology for USB Audio, restart your PC and then try & reproduce the issue.
I have the same problem with a W10 desktop.
After about ten minutes of an on-going call, I can no longer here the distant caller, but latter can hear me. To remedy, I remove UCB Wifi adptor from USB 2.0 jack and then re-insert. I can then immediately hear caller again. Hence, the Focus UC must be reset or rebooted to remedy problem.
