Accessory Overview Of The Plantronics Voyager Pro Bluetooth Headset

Posted by Contributor

Cellular Accessories can make any phone a lot more fun. The Plantronics Bluetooth Headset is no exception. The Plantronics Voyager Pro Bluetooth Headset is a bulky, solid, old-school Bluetooth headset which has a large rotating boom mic of the kind that used to be associated with customer service reps from about ten years ago. The successor to the Voyager 510, one of the most popular premium headsets ever sold, the Voyager Prof measures 1.8 inches wide, or 4 whole inches with the boom mic extended, and it is 2.3 inches long by 0.4 of an inch thick. The weight of the device is distributed towards the back of the ear, making for balance and comfort. A large battery wraps around the back of the ear, which is also where the power button happens to be located. The volume rocker sits atop the headset, over the ear, and the call button is situated behind the earpiece, which can be fitted in either ear. Rubbery gel covers for the earpiece are provided in two sizes, and do not intrude too deeply into the ear canal. Foam bud covers, however, are provided in only one size. The rotating boom mic extends from the earpiece and can be flipped around for use on either side of the head. The boom can also be set closer to the mouth or more compactly against the face. At the tip of the boom mic are two screens that act as a barrier against wind-noise. In addition, the Voyager Pro offers a built-in electronic filter in its circuitry, along with Plantronics’ Audio IQ2 noise cancellation software, which all works to reduce static and other noise without a noticeable loss in sound clarity. The headset doesn’t currently support single-ear stereo, however, though such a feature could be possible with nothing more than a firmware update in the future.

The Plantronics Voyager Pro is able to answer, reject, or end calls, and features call waiting, call mute, last number redial, and the ability to connect with another headset. Official talk time is 6 hours, and standby can be up to five whole days. A full charge typically takes ninety minutes. Verizon Wireless subscribers should note that a normal Voyager Pro headset will play a special musical tone upon connection to a Verizon phone. Because many Verizon phones save power by timing out their active connections and switching into passive mode, this tone will be played quite often when waking up the phone and switching it back to active mode when in use again, so be sure to get the special Verizon version of the Plantronics Voyager Pro, available only at Verizon Wireless stores.
