We recently rolled out RingCentral to our office of 200 users. I really like there service, but I too have the Robotic voice with my Savi 745 headset using the RC Desktop client. The issue does not occur on every call, but it does seem to happen to the same numbers (to both internal RC and external non-RC phones). It appears to be specific to my PC. When I moved my Savi headset to another laptop it did not have the issue. Both computers are running the latest 9.3.5 RC Desktop software on the same Windows 10 OS version.
On the computer with the problem, I have found that unplugging and reconnecting the USB port during an active call fixes the Robotic voice issue 100% of the time. However, once that call ends I may need to redo that on the next active call. For callers I know I've spoken to with the issue, I have unplugged the USB and reconnected the USB, after initiating the call but before they have answered, so that active call will be clear.
The Robotic issue never occurs when using the Savi 745 DECT to my VVX411 desk phone. I'm still looking for a permanent solution. I have borrowed a Savi 745 from one coworker that does not have the issue and using his Savi with my PC we had the issue. Moving my Savi to his PC, we did not have the issue. The computers are different models. Hopefully this gives RC support more information to find a solution.
UPDATE: I tried using the hold mentioned above, that did not work for me. I tried turning the 'Plantronics headset' off/on in RC Desktop Settings > Sound, and that worked for the active call, just like the USB method I mentioned above. The Plantronics headset off/on is faster if you already have the settings page opened.
