Hands on with the Plantronics Voyager PRO+
by Mark R
I’m getting to the point where I have reviewed many Bluetooth headsets on this blog, and for some reason, I’m always in the mood to try another.
I got a chance to check out the Voyager PRO+ from Plantronics. As you can see, it has a very thick and curved back, which is apparently part of the stainless steel WindSmart screens that “block intrusive wind noise”. It also has a pivoting boom to capture the user’s voice and allows for wearing on either ear.
You might think that the design would weigh on the user’s ear, but I was able to use it for hours without it feeling like it was even there. The sound was pretty good with two noise-canceling microphones.
The Voyager PRO+ conforms to Bluetooth version 2.1, and is able to stream calls, podcasts, and music. It also has voice alerts for talk time, volume, and phone connection. Additional features include Multipoint and Quickpair technology, which I can only assume are unique to the Plantronics line.
It also has an iPhone headset battery meter, and it has up to six hours of talk time and five days standby time. I would recommend it, and you should be able to get it on the Plantronics website for $99.99.
