Plantronics Voyager 520


As we mentioned, the Voyager 520 has a dramatically different look from that of the Voyager 510. Going for a more contemporary look and eschewing the Borg-like design of the 510, the Voyager 520 has a simple tear-drop Bluetooth headset design. It is...

The Plantronics Voyager 520 is a very comfortable and lightweight Bluetooth headset with excellent call quality. It's also quite affordable.

The Plantronics Voyager 520 looks a tad dull, and its volume toggle was a little tricky to use.

The Plantronics Voyager 520 Bluetooth headset has a comfortable fit, easy-to-use controls, and solid performance, all at a good price.

Plantronics Voyager 520


Plantronics, purveyors of high-tech, rugged and reliable headsets to government agencies, air traffic control, law enforcement bodies, corporations and individual consumers across the planet, recently announced their newest business-class Bluetooth...

Lightweight and comfortable; excellent wireless range; exceptional sound quality

Basing station comes unassembled; you are stuck with a single earpiece size

The $99 USD price tag is very fair for such a comfortable and high-quality Bluetooth headset.

Plantronics Voyager 520


Plantronics bundles the 520 with a charger and a small dock that you can run the charger wire through. That's it—there are no DC- or battery-powered chargers, extra ear loops, or spare earbud covers in the box. Plantronics doesn't advertise any special...

Sleek styling. Top-notch sound quality. Simple controls. Long battery life

Shorter range than other Plantronics headsets

Plantronics scores big with a long-lasting, superb-sounding update to the popular Voyager 510.

QuickLook: Plantronics Voyager 520


There are days that I long for just a phone. Or rather, a much smaller, lighter phone that gave me the same level of service as my existing XV6700.

Easy to use ; Very comfortable ; Great sound quality ; Includes USB power option

More volume would be nice in loud areas ; Button press is stiff

The Plantronics Voyager 520 now stands as my day-to-day workhorse. The inclusion of a USB power option really helped in this regard, as I can get recharged almost anywhere without having to carry around a bulky wall wart. This headset looks great,...

Review: Plantronics Voyager 520


It took me a little while to figure out the best way to start this review. I mean, this is a great headset and it is very easy to use. I just couldn't figure out the best way to convey that sentiment. And then it hit me, why not give it to my wife...

Well, I was hoping to use this space to tell you home much my wife loved this headset. Although, she did say her Mom’s answering machine sounded nice and seemed to think it felt better than most headsets she had tried to wear. The only downside I had...

Plantronics has introduced the Voyager 520 Bluetooth headset that is smaller, lighter, and has a longer battery life than their previous Voyager models. The $80 (street price) headset is a worthy heir to the Voyager 510 and improves greatly on styling...

Plantronics Voyager 520 Bluetooth Headset Review


Bluetooth headsets are as prolific these days at cellular phones that can use them. The catch is that not all Bluetooth headsets are created equal. Today we are going to have a look at a new Bluetooth headset from Plantronics called the Voyager 520....

Review: Plantronics Voyager 520 Bluetooth Headset


Three new Bluetooth headsets we've been testing generally follow the historic rule, but also interestingly diverge enough from it to be worthy of any iPhone owner's attention. Two are from Plantronics-the brand new Voyager 520 ($100) is an improved...

We can only speak to our own experiences. The 520 is the highest-rated Bluetooth headset we've yet reviewed, but callers told us they had problems hearing us when the wind was blowing against it. Aliph's Jawbone consistently received comparative sound...
