Summary: Overall, I really like this headset. I haven't had any of the previous reviewers issues. I did notice all but 1 was from quite a while ago - possibly Plantronics made some changes/updates?
I have had some of the cleanest, most stable calls using this headset. I can say that I have never once had the headset cut out or had any of the buzzing issues. Those reviews that mention those issues are 3 and 6 months old which is why I started wondering if there was a firmware upgrade possibly since then.
The other issues mentioned in these reviews were Apple specific. I've been using mine on a Galaxy S3 and S4 and have been extremely happy.
The 2 issues that keep this from being 5 stars for me are the earbuds and the power cord.
I just have not been able to get a good seal with these earbuds. They fit just fine but they don't make a good comfortable seal. It tends to make me feel like it's not seated correctly even though it is.
The other issue is the charging cord. This is a minor issue for 2 reasons. The headset comes with 2 charging options. 1 is a travel case/battery that both stores and charges the headset. This is pretty cool actually. It's magnetized and really grabs hold of the headset and insures a good connection. Makes carrying the headset around very easy and for me means I only have to charge it up once or maybe twice a week. The issue is that the power cord for that charger is only about 2 feet long. Pretty annoying. Luckily since it doesn't have to be plugged in very often it's not a deal breaker. The other charging option is a little desktop stand. It works well enough but having the case/charger combo makes that somewhat irrelevant.
I really liked the old Voyager having a regular micro-USB port which meant I could charge it from any of my other chargers. That was very convenient. The new Voyager has a special charging port. Since this has the case/charger combo it's not a deal-breaker but it does a star for it all the same.
Thanks for your submission!
