Plantronics Explorer 360


This sleek headset is fit for mobile professionals, but your callers might appreciate the voice quality more than you will.

Good voice quality ; Loud volume on the receiver's end

Unreliable volume on the caller’s end ; Voice quality on the caller's end sounds distant

We like the Explorer 360's boardroom-ready design, and when it came to making calls in a noisy environment, it fared very well. Its distant voice quality and unreliable volume—coupled with its relatively high price—keep us from giving it a higher rating.

After 12-18 Months of minimal, it just died....


After it just stopped turning on (I read up on this and it apparently happens with this model) I can't really suggest this product to anyone. I don't like to throw $$ away on anything let alone electronics like this. I didn't always use it and that is...

Nothing remarkable, sound and battery life are not very good

Sound quality is average

A good basic headset


I gave this a better than average rating. The sound is good as long as the headpiece is near the phone, the sound is good for clarity, and I had no issues for charing other than being difficult to plug in. The directions to use were simple and the...

This was my 1st headset and I based my purchase on other reviews that showed plantronics has the best overall performance. The price, the quality, and the look was exactly what I wanted. The sound is clear and I've had no issues, the sound is clear

I think they could have designed the plug in for the USB better, it's really tiny, and hard to open to plug it in. With that being the only "issue" I think this was a good buy for the money. I liked it's online rating, I like the fit and style

Basic, works, good price and easy to use.


Horses for courses. This Bluetooth is perfect for what I need it for- communication during physical work in stables. Stays where it should be (on my ear), long battery life and is reliable.

Great for when I am treating horses. Snug fit and does not get in the way, hurt my ear or fall off

Not at all good in wind or driving with window open. (Use the Voyager Pro when driving.)

Good quality & features for the $. Insuff vol & range.


I would recommend buying this headset if you planned using it in quiet environments within arm's length of your phone. This would be a great choice for complying with hands-free device traffic-laws such as on a military post/base. If you want a...

Great price. Solid quality and features for the money. In the car with the windows up and the radio turned down, it was terrific. Cost about $30 at Best Buy during Feb 2010. Looks professional instead of pretentious

Volume inadequate ; Unusable in moderate wind (no noise cancellation) ; Range (there was too much static for conversation when I left the phone in my car and wore my headset while filling up with gas)

5 stars for sound. 3 stars for design flaw


Buy it. It sounds great and your receiver doesn't complain either. Just get ready to be annoyed by the usb protector cover.

Great sound in and out

Rubber USB port protector cover annoying. Difficult to open. I need tweezers. I hate to have to tear the cover off, but eventually I just might

Bang for buck perfection!


After losing my $30 Plantronics cheapie Bluetooth at Phoenix Sky Harbor after landing last week, I ducked into Best Buy to get another (that and for the air conditioning, LOL). They had the Explorer 360 on the rack for $29.99. The decision made itself:...

Features: better control of volume and power. Size: although bigger than my Plantronics basic, still was comfortable. Price: $30 at Phoenix Best Buy, same price as my old basic Plantronics unit

No cons whatsoever

very good and comfortable


i think that the products is worth every penny i spent. my only negative about explorer 360 is my phone and the headset ring when i receive a call and i liked my old one that just rang in my ear. other than that minor detail i feel that it is a great...

fits well in my ear

doesnt redirect ringer to earpiece

Solid Choice


This is my first bluetooth headset (please keep that in mind while reading my review), and overall I'm very happy with it. It's not flashy or high style, it's actually quite plain, although clean, which is a look I can appreciate. It was very easy...

Reliable, light, with pretty good quality sound

Slight static in the back ground, doesn't use regular mini usb charger (such as moto and blackberry)
