Plantronics Discovery 925 Review

Performance:

We didn’t bother much adjusting the volume and quickly paired the device to run a quick test. It clings to the ear firmly, but sometimes you may get the feeling it is about to fall off. Fortunately, it wouldn´t, in contrast to other Bluetooth hands-frees we have used. Naturally, the Discovery 925 becomes uncomfortable after a prolonged use, say, two or three hours of continuous wear. The  wonderful sound quality, however, fully makes up for the drawback. Voices sound really clear and natural, as if the person you are talking with was right next to you. The same goes for people on the other end– everyone could hear us loud and clear, well, except for that time when a gust of wind almost knocked us off our feet and even the incorporated “AudioIQ” noise suppression technology didn´t seem to help. However, as far as we know, a real cell phone would not sound any better in similar conditions, so we are completely satisfied with its performance with this respect.



Conclusion:

We whole-heartedly recommend the Plantronics Discovery 925. Not everyone would find its innovative design appealing, but those who do, should know that they would be getting a really high-quality Bluetooth earpiece in their hands. It does look different and unique, not to mention the sound quality it delivers is nothing short of truly remarkable. Good things rarely come free though and you would need to shell out between $70 to $130 to get the Discovery 925. In this case, however, it’s money well spent.

Pros

  • Innovative design
  • Outstanding sound quality
  • Satisfying battery life

Cons

  • Becomes uncomfortable after prolonged use

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
