Plantronics Voyager 855 Stereo BT Headset

 

Plantronics' Voyager 855 is a very well designed, sleek headset that provides good sound for calls but at a bit of a steep price.

Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth Headset (Black)

 

If you want a quality Bluetooth headset that can be either mono or stereo, then the Plantronics Voyager 855 is an excellent choice.

The Plantronics Voyager 855 is a sleek and sexy Bluetooth headset that can be converted from mono to stereo via an earbud cable. It has a sliding boom mic, a comfortable fit, plus excellent performance. It is also very lightweight

The Plantronics Voyager 855 has tiny controls on the side, and the act of sliding the boom mic up and down resulted in a slightly insecure fit. It's also a little on the expensive side

Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth Headset

 

Stereo Bluetooth headset design includes comfortable earbuds; sound quality for calls is good, for music only so-so.

Nice sliding speaker design ; Doubles as stereo music headphones

Music audio quality not all that ; Expensive

The $76 (as of February 15, 2008) Voyager 855 is well designed for a Bluetooth headset, though you'll still look dorky from the perspective of music fashionistas. It also sounds goods, but again, only for a Bluetooth headset. In short, if you're...

This sleek convertible headset can juggle your calls and tunes, but the call quality could be better.

Clever, convertible design ; Long battery life ; Loud stereo sound ; Good range

Small buttons ; Poor call quality in windy environments ; Unequal noise cancelation among earbuds

When the Jabra BT8010 arrived early this year at CES, we declared it one of the more innovative products we've seen thanks to its dual function as both a mono and a stereo Bluetooth headset--just add a secondary earpiece to convert from mono to stereo....

The device comes with several sets of rubber ear tips in different sizes to ensure a good fit, two extra plastic ear loops, the stereo earbud extension with a fixed ear loop (more on this later), a small AC charger, and a carrying pouch with...

Comfortable. Detachable stereo earpiece for music. Sliding boom mic improves call quality. Good battery life

Poor stereo music sound quality. Set looks a bit strange when both earbuds are worn

This stereo Bluetooth headset lets you listen to music and make hands-free calls using the built-in mic. But the Voyager 855's lopsided look and poor stereo sound quality make it better in theory than in practice.

Review: Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth Headset

 

Bluetooth headsets have become commonplace now that an increasing number of US states are (finally) making it illegal to use a cellphone while driving without a hands free device. They have become so commonplace, in fact, that a standout headset is rare.

The Voyager 855 retails for $149.95. The current price on Amazon is $68.95.

Review: Plantronics Voyager 855

 

The Plantronics Voyager 855 is a headset with a split personality. It looks and acts like a regular headset that, when attached to its included secondary earpiece, becomes a set of A2DP stereo headphones. Ricky tries it out and likes what he hears.

Plantronics has built a strong reputation based on its headsets, and the Voyager 855 does not disappoint. Solid audio quality and the innovative removable second earpiece are definite strong points. However, the headset is on the large side, measuring...

Mini-Review: Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones

 

Above, a quick video detailing my thoughts on the Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth Stereo Headset ($99.95). The Voyager 855 is a neat little headset and fairly versatile with two

Yes, I know, I'm putting my face up on the site way too much lately - but headsets are weird little buggers - if you don't seem them actually in use they may as well be UFOs. So, a necessary evil
