Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I use a Motorola V3 Razr phone, and this headset rocks! It was simple to 'pair-up' with my phone, very comfortable to wear, and the ear-piece design provides excellent clarity due to its noise isolation design. The microphone operates so well, that I...

Comfortable to wear, fits snug, good clarity of listener, and I sound better as well. The 'one' button toggle switch is built sturdy enough to avoid accidental activation of the headset

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I guess you get what you pay for. Pairing was relatively easy, but I have to do it repeatedly. I'll use it on a call, then on my next call I have to re-pair it with the phone. It's also difficult to tell when it's going to work and when it's not. I...


Loses pairing with phone, unpredictable functionality

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


This model works very well for the price, but is not as good as the Voyager520 which I also own. The earpiece of the Explorer330 is much stiffer than the Voyager520. Additionally, the indicator light is much better on the 520. Of course, the 520 is...

Very Good Headset. Clear and Easy to Use

Not as comfortable/good as Voyager520

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I have not used this enough to really know how I feel completely, but I had a bit of breakup in my first couple of uses if my phone was not quite close to the receiver. I feel that overall this is a good headset and that I will be pleased with its...

Lightweight, easy to sync, rechargeable battery

Slightly weak signal at times in first few uses

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


Without the manual, I was able to pair the device with my phone. It works like a charm without any distortion. Good product. I will surely recomend it to other interested parties.

Beautiful design and clarity

no instruction manual

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I've spent the past week trying and returning headsets from three other manufacturers. While not as comfortable as some of the more expensive models the sound quality of the explorer 330 was far better than headsets costing 4 times as much. My cell...

Excellent sound quality. Single controll for all functions. Gives one time tone warnings when cell phone loses and gains signal

Less comfortable than some. Person you talk with hears your environment

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I've been using this headset, along with the Plantronics 650E for a couple of weeks now and I think that the 330 is a good, dependable basic headset. The sound quality is good on both ends and the volume control knob is comfortable to use. If you're...

Long Talk Time and Secure Fit Over Ear

Very Basic Appearance

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I'm a lefty, and when I'm in the car I prefer to have a headset in my left ear. Unfortunately, the mics tend to pick up a LOT of (expecially freeway) ambient noise and make the outgoing part of your conversation more difficult for whomever is listening...

Placement and design of microphone; clarity of outgoing sound; two-color notification LEDs, good battery life (at least during my initial time with it

The LED's could be much more informative about the stage of charge during a charge-cycle; sometimes hard to find a comfortable seating of it; doesn't work well towards the edge of its spec range

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I used to have a Plantronics 320 which was nice, but this one is even better. It looks nicer and the reception is a lot clearer. Once again, I'm happy with my Plantronics purchase.

Comfortable fit; clear reception; user friendly

The flashing blue light indicating that the device is on is a little hard to see because of the color of the unit...but it's not something that would stop me from buying another

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I had a Explorer 320 before and the voice clarity was much better... I hear static (crackling) even if my phone is in my left pocket and the headset is not my right. There is also a delay between the button press to receive call on the headset and the...

Easy to use

voice connection not too good
