Our Verdict

The smallest of the Poly Sync lineup, the slim, light and small Poly Sync 10 speakerphone is designed first and foremost for a home-office setup. Easy to connect and set up, sound quality is very decent in conference calls and video chats, and outperforms many native monitor or laptop speakers for music audio quality too.

For

  • Lightweight and compact
  • Good sound quality
  • Easy to set up

Against

  • Short cable

The Poly Sync 10 is one of productivity brand Poly's latest devices. If it doesn't sound like a familiar brand, don't panic, it didn't to me either. Turns out, this is a rather recent new badging exercise by HP, aimed at hybrid and remote workers, essentially with HP products that don't look like HP products.

I got in the Poly Sync 10 to use on my daily video chats and conference calls, alongside a webcam from the same brand, and over the last several weeks I've gotten quite comfortable with both. I didn't expect them to trouble the best PC speakers out there, but was pleasantly surprised with their performance, even outside their core remit of transmitting video calls.
