    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.

    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).
