Plantronics Voyager Edge


The Plantronics Voyager Edge Bluetooth headset cuts the bulk of its predecessors without sacrificing superlative call quality.

Excellent call quality. Easy pairing using NFC. Charging cradle included. Solid battery life given its size

Mediocre wind resistance. Tested range is slightly short

Plantronics and Jawbone have been duking it out with their Bluetooth headsets for years now, the former focusing on superior call quality while the latter delivers devices with unrivaled style. That battle continues with the Plantronics Voyager Edge...

Plantronics Voyager PRO Wireless Headset


A decade after its first Bluetooth headset in 2001, Plantronics still stands out as one of the leaders in an increasingly crowded field. The Voyager line of headsets is especially popular with consumers who prize audio quality and comfort above all...

The Plantronics Voyager Pro UC has Smart Sensor technology that lets you route calls automatically to the headset or phone, play or pause music automatically, and more. It also features A2DP streaming, multipoint connectivity, and great audio quality...

The Plantronics Voyager Pro UC is not that much different from its predecessors, and it is currently not compatible with Plantronics' own Vocalyst automated phone service. We also think it's too expensive.

The Plantronics Voyager Pro UC combines a perennial favorite design with cutting-edge technology that results in a modern yet reliable headset.

Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus


The Plantronics Voyager line of headsets is legend in the Bluetooth headset world. The old-school Voyager 510 has many rabid fans and last year's Voyager Pro has earned its fair share of recognition as well. This might come as a surprise for some...

The Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus has a very comfortable fit, with a dedicated power switch, a volume rocker, and a swiveling boom mic. It has multipoint, A2DP streaming, voice alerts, a battery meter when paired with an iPhone, and access to...

The Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus is quite bulky, and might not fit comfortably for those who wear glasses. The Vocalyst service is only free for the first year, plus you have to upgrade to the Pro level to get the speech-to-text feature.

The Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus may not be the most stylish headset, but its features and performance more than make up for it.

Bluetooth headsets are mostly associated - literally, in fact - with cellphones, but there are plenty of people looking to go wireless with their computers for

Plantronics Voyager Pro - Review of the Plantronics Voyager Pro


Comfortable, sturdy fit, Excellent voice quality, Convenient voice prompts, Easy to pair

Relatively large, Polarizing design

The biggest drawback to the Plantronics Voyager Pro is that some people will find its design too serious, or too bulky. That said, it's one of the most comfortable we've tested, and the noise and wind cancellation are both effective. The $129 Aliph...

Plantronics Voyager Pro HD


Pairing the Pro HD with another phone is simple: You hold the power button for several seconds, until it starts flashing in an alternating red and blue pattern. I had no problem pairing the Pro HD with an Apple iPhone 4 and a Samsung Infuse 4G.

Stellar sound quality. SmartSensor proximity-sensor technology works well. Supremely comfortable. Very good sound quality

Still larger than what most people want to wear, at least in public. Vocalyst service costs extra after the first year

With its integrated proximity sensor, the comfortable, great-sounding Plantronics Voyager Pro HD lets you switch calls between handset and headset simply by placing it on your ear. Only if it weren't so big.

Plantronics Voyager Pro+


A raised multi-function button sits on the edge, with a pair of dedicated volume buttons on top. The power button on the back requires that you hold it a few seconds to turn the headset on and off. Everything is easy to find and press. The internal...

Superb sound quality. Very comfortable. A2DP audio streaming. Good battery life

Noise cancellation is only average. Vocalyst service isn't great

The Voyager Pro+ is a great-sounding Bluetooth headset that's very comfortable to wear for extended periods; aside from being large, it has no major flaws.

Plantronics Voyager Pro


The Plantronics Voyager Pro ($99.99 list) is the best Bluetooth headset you can find for all-day chatter. It's very comfortable and its strength is in its earpiece: Even if you're standing in the middle of a traffic jam, you'll still be able to hear...

Superb voice quality. Excellent noise cancellation. Solid battery life. Comfortable

Huge size. Some issues with wind noise ; Watch the Plantronics Voyager Pro in action

The Plantronics Voyager Pro delivers the highest-caliber Bluetooth voice quality, in almost any environment. The Aliph Jawbone Prime wins with wind noise handling, but the Voyager Pro still nabs our Editors' Choice.

Plantronics Voyager PRO Review


So, how do you feel about making calls on a Bluetooth hands-free? You don't think it ridiculous, do you? Well, that´s good, since we all know speaking on your cell phone while driving is not the brightest idea ever. At all. Which is so not the case...

Plantronics Voyager Edge Review


The Voyager Edge is a premium Bluetooth headset by Plantronics. At $129.99, it is not affordable, but the Santa Cruz-based company went out of its way with the design and extra perks that come with it. The end result is a high-class, but also stylish...

Great design and build ; Responsive and easy-to-find buttons ; Eartips make for a secure, but hassle-free fit

Call quality is just average ; Android app allows for more features, but it's not available in every country, and requires the latest Android 4.4 KitKat

As far as cool and flashy gizmos go, the Plantronics Voyager Edge is right up there. The bespoke design speaks volumes about the priorities of the California-based company, and we definitely liked what we saw. The Edge is well-crafted and...
