Plantronics Explorer 320 Bluetooth Headset


Although the Discovery 640 and Voyager 510SL were top-range models that came with loads of accessories, the Plantronics Explorer 320 is better suited for novice and low-maintenance Bluetooth users. Included in the package are just the headset and a...

Comfortable fit; stylish design; user-friendly controls; acceptable call quality.

Troublesome pairing process; dim LED light; not great in windy conditions.

Although it's not perfect, the Plantronics Explorer 320 is a solid lower-tier Bluetooth headset.

Plantronics M3000 Bluetooth


Strong audio quality; decent battery life.

Difficult to maintain a secure fit.

Plantronics' latest Bluetooth headset is an improvement over its first-generation product, but it doesn't provide the snuggest fit.

Plantronics M3000


If you use your Bluetooth cell phone a lot, the Plantronics M3000 Bluetooth Headset is an excellent investment. Using earpiece buttons, you can answer, mute, and end calls—and even redial recently used numbers. The M3000 is comfortable to wear, and...

Review: Plantronics Explorer 360 Bluetooth headset review


The Plantronics Explorer 360 is a solid entry-level Bluetooth headset. It offers great battery life and reasonable performance for little money.

Like mine, but biggest issue is the piece that goes over the ear and it comes off and this last time I lost it. Can't find anywhere to buy the over the ear piece. Any solutions?

Review: Plantronics Explorer 320 Bluetooth Headset


TreoCentral's James Hromadka reviews the Plantronics Explorer 320 bluetooth headset. Read on for the full review.

Sleek design, Lightweight, Excellent battery life, Inexpensive

All-in-one button is good-for-nothing, Atrocious audio quality, Ear nub is non-removeable

The Plantronics Explorer 320 is a very disappointing headset. While it is certainly a nice-looking headset that is lightweight and has excellent battery life, the poor usability, unacceptable audio abilities, and issues with the Treo make the Explorer...

Review: Plantronics M3000


The first thing you notice when you see Plantronics' new M3000 is the sense of "deja vu" you feel. Haven't we seen this somewhere before? Yes, we have. Based largely on the Nokia HDW-2, Plantronics has raised the bar significantly.

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

Consumer review by:

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.)

Consumer review by:

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)
