Plantronics Explorer 390 Mobile Phone Bluetooth Headset


As such, Explorer 390 users need to ensure that they are constantly in-touch and so the headset comes with 3 charging options; AC charger, car charger and laptop charger.

The Explorer 390 is lightweight, just 11 grams, which is an essential part of all-day wearability and comfort.

Bluetooth from Plantronics and Jabra : Plantronics Explorer 390 & Jabra BT2080


Here two devices to help you talk on the move. Both these devices allow hands free speaking and listening. The first from Plantronics and then the second from Jabra, both are light and efficient.

The body is 4.5x1.5x2cm and the total weight is 11grams. The figure I gave do not include the covered wire hook that sits behind the ear include this and the 4.5cm height can increase to 8cm. It works with almost any Bluetooth phone and is specifically...

Not worth it. I do NOT recommend this one.


Not really anything outstanding

Not worth it. Lots of background noise for the person on the other end so I am told by several folks I regularly talk to. Static over each word for me listening. Not that comfortable to wear - 6 hours in my ear max. Just not a pleasant experience. Wi

Great Product


Works as designed, this bluetooth headset has decent battery life, great durability (it isn't even scratched after being dropped several times), is light and comfortable, and doesn't look awkward attached to the side of my head

I now spend more time talking to people I dislike

Not so good a deal...


I guess any manufacturer can have a bad apple in their barrel. I assume that was the case here. I will try to contact Plantronics to see what they say about it.

When it worked, it worked very well. Interesting earpiece that enhances hearing when using the device. Price was right

It broke after about 6 weeks of use. The power tip that goes into the receiving USB port on the device was "sticky" and difficult to remove. Apparently, this caused the receiving USB port in the device to weaken and finally separate from the device....

Save your pennies!


Do yourself a favor and spend a few more bucks to buy a quality BT headset. I went cheap and feel the pain.

Easy to use, comfortable

Sounds tinny, annoying beeps while speaking due to lower end noise cancelation

Consumer review by:

Good headset for the price


This is a good headset for the price. The sound quality is adequate for conferencing and for general audio. Pairing is a breeze and really easy to set up

They feel a bit flimsy and cheap

Consumer review by:

Works Nice


Sounds fine, no complaints from anyone except for a few people say when I'm in direct connect mode it sounds over amplified but that may be the phone

I have to wear this for about 10 hours a day for my job, it starts to really hurt my ear and I have to readjust it

Consumer review by:

Great price...great product


Good Price ; Pairs pretty instantly and works great ; Came with charger and booklet ; Fast Service ; Fits my phone charger so hey, i got another phone charger ; Good range, was still clear 15 ft away from my phone

Only thing I do not like is the ear holder thingy is really flimsy and seems kinda fragile. Handle with care

Great price, Quick connect, long talk and listen time, I use it to listen to music on my phone
