Plantronics Discovery 925 Review
Some people actually do consider Bluetooth hands-frees uncool. In our view, this is simply because they haven’t had the chance to see the new Plantronics Discovery 925. This is a stylish earpiece that allows you to stay focused on the road or do whatever you need to that requires both your hands.
All in a tizzy as we have finally got the chance to check out the Discovery 925, we hurried to unpack it. Actually, taking it out of the package isn’t the easiest thing to do. The manufacturer has done pretty well in creating a nice and elaborate box with the potential to get even the smartest people in quandary. As if on purpose, the box is transparent, so we could see the little earpiece inside while struggling to get it out. Eventually, we came to find out the box wasn’t impossible to open (you just need to use your horse sense instead of acting like the nerdy geeks we are) and the device was finally in our hands within a few seconds.
We are of the opinion that the new Plantronics looks really good. It’s stylish and made of metal, which contributes to its solid feel, although some people may find it a bit feminine. There are five color solutions to choose from: “Royal Blush” (white), “Black”, “Majestic Purple”, “Cerise” and “Gold”. The Discovery 925 comes bundled with a small leather-coated rechargeable case that is comfortable to carry about, say, in a small bag.
There are only two buttons on the device. The big square-shaped one is the call control and as its name suggests, it lets you answer, reject and end calls as well as power on/off and pair the earpiece. Pressing the small metal-like button turns the volume up and two low tones notify you if the full blast level has been reached.

I've had this one for a while now. I definitely agree with the 9 rating! It really doesn't come off thanks to that design for the ear piece. And super light weight!

I think all bluetooth headsets allow you do things without the use of both hands. ...

actually i've tried this headset after reading this review and returned it the next day , !!! Positives : light weight , loud incoming sound , easy pairing , charging case , excellent fit Negatives : people on the other end said my sound is poor and not clear enough , no noise cancelling at all , no wind cancelling , sound is not natural on the other end , can easily broken , no much accessories boxed with it especially at that price Simply it doesn't worth its price , nearly the same performance of another one LG HBM-220 which i'd from an offer for about USD 18.00
