Plantronics Discovery 975 - Simple But Not Ingenious

 

Plantronics is a known brand in the world of Bluetooth headsets, and has always come up with stuff that's high on performance. We make a “discovery” of their latest headset, the Discovery 975. Design The device is quite sleek and nice to look at and...

Performance is quite good, but not exceptional. It doesn't deliver what you would expect at a price of Rs. 5,490 MRP. It scores high on design and looks, but leaves you wanting it to deliver more. On the whole, it’s only worth a buy if (and only if)...

Discovery 975 Replacement Head

 

The Plantronics Voyager Pro earned our Editor's Choice award earlier this year for having the best sound quality of any Bluetooth headset we've tried. However, the Voyager Pro was marred by its slightly bulky and unfashionable appearance. The new...

The Plantronics Discovery 975 is a unique Bluetooth headset that features multipoint, voice prompts, and fantastic audio quality with good noise-canceling and wind-noise resistance. It has a much improved charging case with a battery status indicator.

The Plantronics Discovery 975 has a hard-to-press multifunction button and the volume key is tiny.

Despite its finicky controls, the Plantronics Discovery 975 is a stylish headset with a comfortable fit, a great feature set, and excellent call quality.

Plantronics Discovery 975 Review

 

You could talk for ages about where the Plantronics Discovery 975 fits into the company's range, but the simplest explanation is that the Voyager PRO and Discovery 925 had a baby and it's the new prodigal son. Combining the audio excellence of the...

To be blunt, it’s as though Plantronics took our criticisms of the Voyager PRO – its bulk, its glasses-unfriendly hook and its overly businesslike appearance – and immediately set to work on a new headset that addressed each one. There’s still a place...

Plantronics Discovery 975

 

The Discovery 975 weighs just 0.3 ounces. The main body consists of a textured black square rotated 45 degrees with a dark grey surround. A long boom mic, also fashioned in dark grey plastic, extends out from the body. I liked the unit's crisp lines in...

Stylish (for a headset). Comfortable fit. Good sound quality. Carrying case doubles as a charger with an LCD display

Poorly placed volume button. Noise canceling slightly behind the top of the class

Plantronics scores again with the Discovery 975, a slick, chrome-accented headset with a unique design and a surprisingly comfortable fit.

Plantronics Discovery 975 Review

 

Following up after the popular Discovery 925, which was a very well-rounded model, its successor in the Plantronics Discovery 975 aims to bring forth yet another similar experience. As it's priced at the higher end of the spectrum at $130, you're...

Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset Review

 

I reviewed the Plantronics Discovery 925 last year and loved its stylish look, great fit, and superior performance. I have been using it regularly ever since. So, the day Plantronics released the, as some say, even more fashionable Discovery 975, I...

Quality materials and construction ; Lightweight ; Improved rechargeable case ; Great high-tech styling (definitely fashionable) ; Excellent feature set ; Multipoint technology (the ability to be paired with two cellphones simultaneously)

Single volume button ; Fragile

Review: Plantronics Discovery 975 Dual-Mic Noise Canceling Bluetooth Earpiece

 

The single most impressive feature of Discovery 975 is its styling, which is unquestionably both cool and professional. Stuck in your ear is a rounded diamond-shaped box with a silicone ear tip on one side, and a curved, wand-like microphone on the...

Overall, Discovery 975 is an interesting Bluetooth option for iPhone users: it combines impressive styling, smart extended battery life, and super-simple controls with sonic performance that is less than entirely satisfying, particularly when used in...

Consumer review by:

"Fits well, great travel charger but sound is poor"

 

I love the little box/travel charger that comes with the headset, it's a smart extra, but it cannot quite weigh up the disadvantage of the poor sound quality - I would have expected more from a headset at this price.

• Small and lightweight

• Poor sound quality, people I talk with often complain about sound quality from my side

Consumer review by:

"It does the job: Hands free talking without a hassle"

 

Excellent quality. My dog chewed it up so it is gone now :(

- good battery life (additional battery case is very handy with approx. 3 extra full charges)

- does not play audio music, just talk time
