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...

Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth headset review

 

Bluetooth headsets are two a dozen these days so what makes Plantronics think it has the answer with the Discovery 640? For starters, the Discovery is one of the most interesting designs we�ve seen in a long time. Although the actual headset itself...

Charging options, style, case to store it all in

Not the smallest Bluetooth headset available, long charge times

The charging elements are what make this stand out from the crowd

Plantronics Discovery 640

 

The Plantronics Discovery 640 bluetooth headset is aimed squarely at road warriors, who will appreciate the convenience of the many charging methods i...

Multiple charging options, small form factor, multipoint Bluetooth

Many small pieces, difficult to use Mute mode, would not work in Silent mode

With its many options for charging offering longer battery life, the Discovery 640 is ideal for those constantly on the move

Plantronics Discovery 640

 

The Plantronics Discovery 640 is a great Bluetooth headset for a corporate user that travels frequently, as it comes with myriad charging options and a vibrating pocket holster.

Great battery life ; Good ergonomics

No noise-cancelling ; Lots of small parts

A pocket holster that vibrates to alert you to incoming calls rounds out the feature set, making the Plantronics unit a good choice for anyone that spends a lot of time making mobile calls each day.
