Review: Plantronics Explorer 220 Bluetooth Headset

 

Affordable, entry level bluetooth headset.

Inexpensive. Lightweight. Lasts six hours on a charge. Easy to use

Hurt my ear after extended use. Mixed audio quality reported on receiving end

I used to make fun of people who wore headsets, especially while in the supermarket or walking down the street. I thought these people were pretentious. I didn’t think headsets were important except when driving, until I got an iPhone.An iPhone

Great but probably not the best

 

I didn't bought this headset, my relative barely used this and I found it in a drawer. I use it to connect to my laptop/iPod pretty much everyday to listen to music so I don't really know how good the mic is. The distance is same as my other Bluetooth...

Long Use Time, Good Audio, Easy Usage, Loud

Probably nothing except a bit uncomfortable and feel loose. and a bit long charge time

Perfect Basic Bluetooth Headset

 

My review is based on the previous generation model then listed for sale here...but should be a good reference for this model... This is a great no frills headset...i feel as though based on the price of $11 the cons are negligible. If you use your...

Cheap ; Comfortable ; Stays in the ear without fuss ; call quality in and out is adequate ; installs simply

short life span...expect a year and half to two years...the battery will diminish until it doesn't charge at all ; doesn't block noise

Consumer review by: Robotic Sheep (newegg.com)

Very Nice

 

I mainly use this for my PS3 and it works perfectly. Others do not complain about my stereo comming through the other end. Good noise cancellation. I would buy again.

Comfortable, Long battery life, lightweight, well made, clear sound

none so far

Consumer review by: doesnt matter (newegg.com)

seems ok

 

Pretty good for the price, I am glad I went with this over the ps3 bluetooth for the price.

Seems to work ok. I only use it with ps3 and have had no issues. Links right up and has good signal ; Very comfy on the ears which i was afraid of, but no issues

Only thing I notice is when the light flashes on the headset I can hear a faint static tic. I read somewhere there is a way to turn the flashing off, might have to try that
