So, how do you feel about making calls on a Bluetooth hands-free? You don’t think it ridiculous, do you?  Well, that´s good, since we all know speaking on your cell phone while driving is not the brightest idea ever. At all. Which is so not the case when it comes to writing down a long SMS to check on the list of all the groceries your wife wants you to get on your way home. We´re joking, of course. But when driving, your eyes need to be on the road and that´s that. We´ve taken on the task of reviewing the hands-free headset that as the manufacturer claims, features the most advanced noise-cancelling technology to date, namely the Plantronics Voyager PRO. Let´s take a closer look and see whether or not this is the case.


Design:

The manufacturer is aiming at the business segment of the market and this is evident from its colors - black and gray. Come to overall shape however, we´ve seen more compact headsets. The Voyager PRO has been designed to cling snugly to the area behind your ear and that´s why it measures a slightly larger size than usual. This isn´t much of an issue for people with dark hair, but is a drawback of the device anyway. There are two major reasons behind it. First, the manufacturer wanted to fit as large a battery as possible and second, provide comfort during prolonged use. We need to say the second goal has not been achieved to our satisfaction. The feeling in your ear gets irritating in about 3 or 4 hours just like with some other hands-frees, which, however, are  holding to their eartips only, so they tend to be more compact as well. As a matter of fact, the Voyager PRO comes boxed with three differently-sized eartips, which makes the headset usable by almost anyone.

There are four buttons on the device. The power-on key is next to the LED indicator that shows the current battery status and loudness is controlled via the buttons, located just above. Unfortunately, we cannot say we are pleased with the position of the Call Control Button. As you might have guessed already, it´s used for answering and rejecting calls, dialing the last number etc. The thing is it´s located facing the eartip that gets into your ear, and we don´t really like how pressing it feels.

Wow! Either you've received a defective unit or your opinion is different than mine and almost all the other reviews on this headset. I've used about 2 dozen headsets over the years including Plantronics, Jawbone, Jabra, Blue Ant and others. By far the Voyager Pro out preforms them all! It has outstanding incoming and outgoing voice quality. People i've spoken to tell me it's almost equal to a land line. I have no problems hearing incoming even at medium volume levels. I can wear it for hours at a time with no discomfort. Also, recently I switched to the LG Dare. The Voyager Pro is the only headset I've used that activates the voice dial with no errors. All in all, the best headset I've ever used.

This is one of the best headsets on the market today. What phone was it synced to? Everyone tells me they can't tell that I'm on a cell phone. And it's the first headset I've owned that I can consistently hear everything that’s being said. All headset reviews should include several different phones before you should consider them valid. This review is just lame.
