Plantronics Voyager 520

BLUETOOTH SOLUTIONS: BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK By ROY NAKANO PLANTRONICS VOYAGER 520 This late entry blew away the competition. Not only does the Plantronics Voyager 520 have the best sound quality we've tested to date, it's the most comfortable to wear. Moreover, it can handle two cell phones. And to top it off, it's the least expensive Bluetooth headset in this group. The Plantronics Voyager 520 Bluetooth headset features robust noise-canceling technology for business-quality performance. Following in the footsteps of the celebrated Voyager 510, the Voyager 520 emphasizes voice clarity, communication versatility and an intuitive, easy-to-operate design ideally suited for mobile professionals. This unit combines a noise-canceling microphone and wind-reduction technology for good sound quality, even in distracting outdoor environments. The headset includes Plantronics' Multipoint technology that enables users to conveniently switch between two Bluetooth devices, such as work and personal mobile phones. In addition to business-quality sound and comfort, the Plantronics Voyager 520 is simple to use. A multifunction button provides easy one-touch call answer/end and volume up/down support. And Plantronics' QuickPair technology enables fast, out-of-the-box pairing of the headset with any Bluetooth mobile phone. With a single charge, professionals get a full workday's worth of talk time - up to eight hours of talk time and 180 hours of standby time. The Voyager 520 won't win any fashion awards. However, if you want the best bang for the buck in Bluetooth headsets, look no further.
