Plantronics Explorer 395 Review

 

We've been impressed with Plantronics last few Bluetooth headsets, finding the company's DSP offers a decent balance of background noise reduction while not making callers sound hopelessly artificial. What happens when Plantronics tries to do DSP on a...

If you regularly make hands-free calls, or both cell and VoIP calls, you should probably look to higher models in Plantronics’ range (or elsewhere); they support multi-point pairing with more than one device simultaneously, and we’ve found their DSP is...

Plantronics Explorer 395

 

The Plantronics Explorer 395 brings good sound quality and high style to a very affordable price point: $49.99, just half of the list price of our former Editors' Choice winner, the Plantronics Voyager Pro ($99.99, ). It's a great choice for a...

Comfortable. Clear sound. Simple, reliable control scheme. Good value

Ineffective noise canceling. One-size-fits-all design. Can't pair with more than one device simultaneously

The Plantronics Explorer 395 offers well-balanced sound quality and a comfortable, easy-to-use design, but get something better if you need good noise suppression.

Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth Headset

 

Plantronics is a popular brand among Bluetooth headset aficionados because of quality headsets like the Plantronics Discovery 975 and the Plantronics Voyager Pro . However, the company also makes entry-level headsets for those who don't have as much...

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is a comfortable and easy-to-use Bluetooth headset with a dedicated power switch and an affordable price.

We wish the Plantronics Explorer 395 came with extra earbud sizes. It doesn't have very good noise-canceling features.

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is a great entry-level Bluetooth headset, as long as you stick to quieter environments.

Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth Headset Review

 

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is the company's newest reasonably priced bluetooth headset. Now before I go any further, to put this review into full perspective, I'm also the Moderator at HowardForums for all things Bluetooth. I sadly own more headsets...

A sliding power on/off switch! Good voice clarity in quiet environments

Sliding power switch "red for off" is a little confusing. DSP noise reduction and wind resistance not the greatest, but not surprising at this price. Glossy finish picks up grime

Consumer review by:

"Generally like, but it it is unreliable"

 

I'm wondering if I just got a bad one and I should exchange it, or if I should pay more for a better model.

I like the look, fit and feel of it and the sound when, it is working fine. And the price was great.

Suddenly, in the middle of a conversation, the sound will become garbled and I have to quickly turn it off and hold my phone to my ear, telling my caller to hold on because I can't hear them. Then, after I turn it back on the next call is fine. This happe

Consumer review by:

Good performance, solid feel, nice-looking

 

Been using BT headsets since 2004. I?ve had most every make and literally dozens of models. I?ve recently been a fan of BlueAnt headsets but their ear loop system is crap. What good is sound quality if you can't keep the stupid thing in your ear? ...

Good sound quality ; Fits securely ; Looks nice

Nothing so far
