Plantronics Voyager 6200 UC hands-on
Professionals in the office, especially those who are constantly chatting on the phone, are known to trot around with Bluetooth headsets that are typical for the occasion. Usually, they're those gigantic, sometimes obnoxious looking, headsets with an extending boom microphone. With Plantronics' latest offering, they're taking the around-the-neck style and adding the professional touch to it.
Enter the Plantronics Voyager 6200 UC, which is undeniably different in the professional atmosphere of an office. Now, the beauty of going with this design, as opposed to the typical headset piece, is that it offers users the flexibility of using it for a wide range of purposes. Whether it's listening to music, to relaxing in a quiet spot catching up with a podcast, or even getting into one of those intensive conference calls with the boss, the Voyager 6200 UC is able to cover the gamut!
When it comes to its design, the flexible nature of the band allows users to wear it loosely. Obviously, this isn't practical for exercising, even though the earbuds do fit nicely in the ear, but it's meant for an entirely different purpose – the office atmosphere. And with that, it's nice to know that the Voyager 6200 UC does offer passive noise cancellation, which does okay to minimize background noise. Better yet, though, you can activate its active noise cancellation with a simple switch, which then lowers the noise down a bit, allowing users to focus on what they're doing.
This pair of headphones was made for professionals, seeing that it features the ability to be paired with up to 8 devices and connect to any two simultaneously, 98 feet of range, wideband audio, and up to 9 hours of talk time. And for those who intend on using it with a personal computer, it comes with a USB Bluetooth dongle to allow you to use it with all of your favorite calling software. With all of the conveniences on board, it's no wonder it costs a whopping $300.
