Plantronics Discovery 640

 

The cylinder-shaped headset itself is relatively small, measuring just 2 inches long and weighing 0.3 ounce. The compact size and the absence of a boom mic make for a subtle style, and we liked the simple silver-and-black color scheme. Like the Tekkeon...

Great audio quality; multiple charging options; compact design; secure fit.

Uncomfortable ear hook; smallish controls; not compatible with all phone chargers.

The Plantronics Discovery 640 is a well-performing Bluetooth headset that offers first-class usability.

Review: Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth Headset

 

TreoCentral's Douglas Morse reviews the Plantronics Discovery 640 bluetooth headset. Read on for the full review.

Super-lightweight, Great charging options, Three sizes of earpieces

Case needs some re-thinking, Sound quality just okay

An excellent, lightweight headset with a lot power options, nice form factor, and a slick case that could be better. The 640 is usable with many phones' AC adapters and even an AAA battery, which you can buy anywhere. The sound quality is solid, though...

Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth Headset Review

 

Today we take a look at the Plantronics Discovery 640, which differs from some of the other Bluetooth headsets that we have reviewed in the past due to the innovative pocket charger. See what this 9 gram is packing as we take it for a test drive on the...

For a street price of around $90, this ultra-lightweight headset is hard to beat with all of its rich features and accessories. It is extremely comfortable with a long battery life and it passes one of our biggest compatibility tests: It works great...

Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth Headset

 

For years, Bluetooth headset manufacturers have been innovating by trying different ear mounting systems, getting better sound,

Modular charging cradle system ; 9 grams ; Vibrating cradle ; Very easy to use and comfortable mounting system ; Battery level indicator ; Missed call indicator

Outgoing audio can be poor at times ; No noise reduction ; Mini-USB adapter sold separately ; Charging cradle is not built into a Windows Mobile phone

I was very excited when I learned about all the great features this headset has. The vibrating pen-clip holder/charger/cradle feature alone may be worth upgrading to this headset. The variety of adapters designed to fit other phone manufacturer's...

I've been through about 5 Bluetooths from Motorola, jawbone and other brands. Each and every one of them started causing pain in my ear after about 30 Mins to an Hour. I need to wear it all day because I'm on the move & on the phone all the time...

Design is good, the execution sux

 

for the price I paid this is OK. had I paid full price, I would be steamed. plantronics has gotten shabby of late. it took three tries go get a working 220. not sure if it's assembly or design but they could be soo much better. I shouldn't need Krazy...

Small, light, excellent recetion

ear gels don't fit firmly to unit and tend to fall off the unit ; the connector for the power supply is just as bad a fit

Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth Headset

 

Very good device, the best I ever owned. Has multiple adapters that are interchangeable so you only need one charger for cell phone and handfree. Or you can charge using a AAA battery.

ease of use, light, I can hear callers very clearly, no echo

ear plug pulls away from device a little easy, so you have to insert and remove from your ear gently

Consumer review by:

Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth Headset

 

This device has been great for all around use, it is plenty loud for use in the car and outdoors. Microphone does a good job of picking up my voice, people on the other end can hear me well.

Lightweight, loud volume, easy pairing.

None so far.
