What customers say about "Key Specs"
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset
  • The noise cancellation and windsmart tech are awesome. It's slightly better than the previous model because they added another mic.
  • I was amazed to find out that while mowing the caller could not hear the lawnmower. I also could hear the caller. This headset blocks out all background noise. I tried it with the disposal on No noise.
  • This has the best noise cancellation by far compared to the dozens I've tried.
  • I use the headset actively so I cannot tolerate those that has less than 6 hours battery life for talking/audio.
  • Decently-long talk time, about 5 hours on a full charge. Fairly easy-to-use controls with buttons that are large enough to find. Charges with any micro-USB cable. Easy to pair. Can connect two devices at the same time.
Plantronics Voyager 5200 UC Advanced NC Bluetooth Headsets System
  • The noise cancelling function is one of the best in the marketwindow down.
  • The sound quality on these is so great and the noise cancelling works for just about everything background except loud speakers and constant strong wind in mine and my hubs experience.
  • The multi-directional noise cancellation was a huge plus over previous Voyager models.
  • The wideband audio mode works great, and I get about six hours of talk time when using it.
  • When fully charged, the unit indicates 11 hours of talk time. I was able to get about 5 hours, before I got the "better low".

What customers say about "Features"
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset
  • Volume controls on the top of the earpiece are now raised buttons which are easier to find
  • Fairly easy-to-use controls with buttons that are large enough to find. Charges with any micro-USB cable. Easy to pair. Can connect two devices at the same time.
  • Great product, and like other newer BT devices, has a control app for phones that allows you to select which 2 devices you want to connect to simultaneously.
  • The noise cancelling and wind blocking on this headset is amazing. The controls are easy and the Windows/Android software is great. Get the charge case for it as well. You won't be disappointed.
  • I had zero issues with the older version, but for some reason the new version when used in my truck will activate the voice control on my radio and will at times keep the voice control on indefinitely, I let it go several times and it didn't complete the search action until I turned the headset off.

  • I really enjoyed the experience of using the new headset from Plantronics, including integration with Skype for Business and time of bacteria allowing work practically the whole day without having to load.
  • Requent disconnect from cell phone.

What customers say about "Power"
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset
  • Yet OTOH this has micro USB charging (unlike the previous model that needed a special charger, which nobody wants to have).
  • About the only good thing is that it can be charged by my previous microUSB charging cables and fits around the ear like the Voyager Legend.
  • Charges with any micro-USB cable. Easy to pair. Can connect two devices at the same time.
  • Battery life is much worse. With the exact same type of usage, I would say that you get a little more than half of the previous model, which is very disappointing.
  • The battery never charges up past 6 hours, last one would charge to seven - and this one will only last about 3 -4 hours before it needs a recharge.
Plantronics Voyager 5200 UC Advanced NC Bluetooth Headsets System
  • Comes with a charging cradle which can also recharge your headset while you are on the go.
  • Headset can also be charged with a micro USB cable (included).
  • Charging base serves as both a portable charging unit (its a battery pack basically), and also a active charging dock to use headset while its charging.
  • 7 hours of talk time it's very good.
  • Battery life I've noticed over time has started to diminish. I went from 6-hours down to roughly 4 active hours over the months. I'm hoping I can just recalibrate and this will fix the problem, but something to keep in mind.
