My technical life, day by day.

Just another WordPress.com weblog

After using the Voyager Pro exclusively for about a week now, I can safely say that this is the best bluetooth headset I have used hands down. I can’t find anything wrong with it! The battery life is great, its pretty close to the rated talk time. However I do have just one quirk, but its more my fault than the headsets. The mic screen grabs my facial hair when there is stubble. I can’t really blame the headset for this, I should keep up on my shaving. I have noticed that once my facial hair grows out it doesn’t grab the hair anymore which is a good thing.

I have to admit that I have used several bluetooth headsets in my day and every one of them always had a few issues, but this one is different. As it stands right now, I can’t find anything that bothers me about this headset.

Just in case your interested, the specs for the Voyager Pro are below:

Engineered for Sound Quality

Reflecting Plantronics’ nearly half a century of obsession with achieving headset perfection, the Voyager PRO represents the epitome of Bluetooth headset technology and design. No other headset has the combination of two noise-canceling mics on a boom to best capture your voice, three layers of WindSmart technology to outsmart the wind, and an adaptive 20-band equalizer tuned to maintain rich, balanced audio at comfortable listening volumes despite the noise around you.

Voyager PRO works great in the car

Wherever you are calling from, your voice sounds clear and natural.

The advanced AudioIQ² the advanced AudioIQ² noise-canceling technology in the Voyager PRO, with its finely tuned adaptive 20-band equalizer, makes you sound like you’re in the same room as your caller, not miles apart. To achieve this, AudioIQ² makes use of two microphones–one that’s focused on your speech and the other that picks out distracting background sounds, such as road hum and construction noise–then compares data from the two mics and eliminates the unwanted sounds, leaving your unique voice free to be heard clearly and naturally, as it was meant to be.

The dual microphones are also stacked with three layers of WindSmart technology–stainless steel mic screens, acoustic fabrics, and an electronic filter in the mic circuitry–that aggressively block intrusive wind noise. The adjustable boom, which allows you to wear the headset on either ear, positions the mics where they can best capture your voice, further enhancing the sound quality. So regardless of whether it’s the din of traffic or the whipping wind that you’re up against, the Voyager PRO will ensure that you and your caller will be heard clearly and sound natural.

Extremely Comfortable, Durable Design

The Plantronics engineers involved in the design of the Voyager PRO were arguably a bit obsessive. After all, in designing the Voyager PRO, they conducted no less than two dozen rounds of intensive human-comfort tests, a relentless study of skin sensitivity, and repeated drop-tests.

A soft, flexible design keeps the headset comfortable.

The result of this obsession is a soft and flexible, extremely comfortable headset that is durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of today’s mobile professional.

QuickPair and Multipoint Technologies: Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use

Thanks to Plantronics’ QuickPair technology, setting up the headset is quick and intuitive. The Voyager PRO supports Bluetooth 2.1 and EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) and Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), making it compatible with Bluetooth-enabled devices, including phones, PDAs, and laptop computers.

Supports Bluetooth

The headset also features Plantronics’ multipoint technology, which lets you pair and answer calls on two different Bluetooth devices. This means you can quickly and easily connect the headset to two phones, such as a Smartphone and a personal phone, or a phone and a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a laptop that you use to make Internet calls. Just choose the combination that best complements your workflow and pair both devices with your headset.

Extended Talk Time

The Voyager PRO includes a fast-charging, long-lasting battery that provides up to six hours of continuous talk time and five days of standby time on a single charge. Convenient voice prompts even alert you to battery and mute status.
