    Smartest headset on the market

    • Written by from Bucharest

    It does exactly what it says... The sound is great, it fits perfect and you will probably forget it's on your ear. All the features are great and useful, like call announce, voice commands, movement sensors. The only bad thing is the charger - if you use it extensively, you will have to carry an adapter or another cable with you.

    Works great, including voice command by button press

    • Written by from Pflugerville

    I don't know what 'Mark M' is talking about. The user's manual states clearly you can voice dial using the phone's own voice feature by pressing the Call button, which is the button at the back of the microphone boom, for two seconds. That brings up voice dial via the iPhone's 'voice control' function. Works perfectly on my iPhone 4. The headset performs exactly as I need it to. The sensor feature is a nice bonus. You can keep the headset connected to the phone but leave it on your desk when you don't need it. When you get a call, put the headset on your ear and the audio is transferred from the handset to the headset. Beats what I used to have to do which was tell a caller to hang on while I put on and connect my headset. I recommend not bothering with the Vocalyst feature.

    Great design, Great button functions, Great voice quality, OK music quality

    • Written by from MILWAUKEE

    I'm on a mission to find the best Bluetooth headset out there. My uses are at the desk so I can type while I'm on the phone, in the car to take calls, and on dog walks to listen to music and podcasts.

    Two issues with it:

    1. The sound quality is fine for phone calls, but not too great for listening to music and NPR. I know a little mono headset like this can't do everything, but Bose and B&O headsets have much better sound quality. Problems with Bose is the the headset is UGLY, materials are cheap, the buttons don't function well (sloppy on/off and volume). The B&O doesn't play music and I don't like the in-ear design. My dog bit it off after 2 weeks of buying it. $350 down the drain). I also tried Jabra and Jawbone. Didn't like either of those.

    2. There's bulk behind the ears. It gets slightly uncomfortable for hours of wearing it, and my glasses won't stay on straight.

    But I can live with those . . .

    Great features:

    - Beautiful design
    - Great magnetic charge connector and fast charge
    - Love the toggle volume button
    - Takes about 5 seconds to set up with Bluetooth (I have an iPhone 4s)
    - When you get a call, just say "Answer" or "Ignore" and that's it!
    - Long boom so my voice is clearer to my calls (they tell me).

    Before this I had a Plantronics A170 Marque that I loved because it was a nice looking, discreet, lozenge, but the sound was really bad. My calls said it sounded like I was in a tin can and I kept having to repeat myself so they could understand.

    This is definitely a keeper (until Bose or B&O does a redesign).

    Sensor is less than perfect with iPhone 5s

    • Written by from DRIFTWOOD

    When you put on the headset while making a call, it switches from phone audio to headset audio. Good, I like that.
    When you put the headset back on your desk it switches back to phone audio. Good.
    The problem is that it does not switch all of your other iPhone audio back to the iPhone.
    For instance, if I put the headset down on my desk and walk in the other room and try to use SIRI, the audio is still connected to the headset. Not good. Also, any other sounds on the iPhone are still connected to the headset including all apps and Music.
    This makes the sensor almost useless because you have to remember to turn off the headset when you leave your office for another room.

    Poor sound quality - disappointed

    • Written by from Portland

    Tired of my colleagues complaining about the terrible voice quality they would hear when using my iPhone headset, I decided to shell out the $100 for the Voyager bluetooth headset. Unfortunately the voice quality (what the listener on the other end hears) is not very good. I get people saying I sound robotic and digitized. I always have the phone on my desk and am rarely more than 3 feet away from the phone so I don't know what could account for the terrible voice quality. As far as how they sound to my ears, they sound decent but not nearly as good as just putting the phone up to my ear - which is exactly how I'll have to make phone calls from now on once I return this device back to the Apple store from whence it came. Disappointed.

    Call quality could be better

    • Written by from Bloomfield

    I had a 4 year old Voyager Pro before I replaced it with the Legend. The call quality could be better and is below par compared to the Voyager Pro. Although updating the firmware, the sound still has some static and crackles when I move my phone on the opposite side of my body. Plantronics customer support insists that this is a bluetooth technology limitation and happens to all bluetooth headsets even when I told them my old Voyager Pro didn't have the same issue. Still the most comfortable bluetooth headset out there and the many features work well. Caller announce is awesome as well as the ability to answer calls by simply wearing the Legend. A2DP sounds good. Voice command is also useful. Oh, and I can still use the phone's native voice commands; Siri, S-Voice, etc.., unlike what Mark claimed in his review.

    Impressive Bluetooth Headset

    • Written by from Fords

    I saw the Voyager Legend at the Apple Store and bought it because of the Caller Announce feature. And it did not disappoint. Caller Announnce worked flawlessly with my iPhone 5. Voice Commands to answer or reject calls, awesome! Sound quality is great too. I bought the charger case for it and voila, 14 hours more of talk time + the 7 hours that headset is already capable of. My only gripe is that updating the firmware was a pain because the supplied mini USB cable is not capable of data transfer. It took a few tries before realizing the cable was the culprit.

    Not bad but not great.

    • Written by from THREE HILLS

    I have both a 5 and 5s. I have two of these headsets and the charging case. Both headsets are pairs to both phones and one is in the charging case so I am never without my headset.
    When they are working well, they sound good and last a long time. The charging case ensures my headset is never dead and at least the case takes a micro USB to charge it.
    Often times though I get poor call quality if the headset is in my left ear and the phone is on my right side belt. This seems worse when am using my phone for web or other wifi related functions at the same time as a call. I have replaced phones thinking its a phone, headsets thinking it's the headset. I have concluded it's simply a case of the headset not being fully compatible with these phones. The firmware in either phone and headset does not seem to matter.
    I would not recommend this product to apple users.

    Wow, this is what I have been waiting for

    • Written by from Cranbury

    Works best with the Mac with the Plantronics Spokes application and the BC-300 USB adapter. Don't pair it with the Mac, pair it with the BC-300.

    I wish Apple sold the UC model, it comes in bundle with everything that you need.

    Integration with Skype works really well. Allows you to have separate sound output for music and use the headset for calls only. iTunes will mute when making or taking calls.

    Headset pairs with computer and cell phone(I think it may even do 2 cell phones in addition to the computer). Just noticed that my iTunes will mute when I receive a call on the cell phone as well.

    One deal-breaker

    • Written by from WEST BURLEIGH

    Just got mine via company issue. Initially features look nice, but the singular most important killer app for me is the old Voyager Pro's ability to access the iPhone's built in voice recognition with the press of the earpiece button, and say "Call the office" (all without any configuration). Very disappointing that there seems to be no way to bypass the Legend's own voice commands to get to the IOS voice recognition, other than reach for the iphone, which is illegal while driving.

    Excellent

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Not sure why some have rated it too low. I am using it for more than a year and no complaints at all. The best feature I like is it connects to 2 phones simultaneously and let you receive calls from any. I have my personal cell phone and have to carry office blackberry and it works out great.

    One day it got "dead". There was no response at all. I called Plantronics help line and they suggested to update the unit by connecting to computer and download the latest software version. Did that and it became alive. Still working great.

    Hard to Say it is Good

    • Written by from Rogers

    I replaced a Plantronics M155 with the Plantronics Voyager after having poor bluetooth headset performance issues on phone calls (over cellular or wireless access points). No improvement. It is either the iPhone 5s, or local wireless interference. I hoped the improved tech of the Legend would help. It has not.
