About the Product
From bustling city streets to the corner café, some of life’s most important calls happen in the most unexpected places. Our cutting edge noise cancelling and WindSmart technology work together to eliminate disruptive background noise, wherever you are. Your voice sounds clear and professional as you seamlessly transition between environments, inside or out. Now anywhere is a great place to talk.
Smart sensor technology reacts when you put the headset on, letting you quickly take a call without a click. If you’re already wearing it, Voyager Legend announces who’s calling and waits for you to say "Answer" or "Ignore." Simply tap the voice command button and ask to check battery level, connection status, and more. Interact with Siri, Google Now, or Cortana by pressing the call button. With technology this nimble, Voyager Legend is the first truly intelligent Bluetooth® headset.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset, Four-mic Active Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Noise and Acoustic Echo Cancellation
  • 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 Legend Bluetooth Headset
  • The headset itself is great and the noise cancelling is amazing. I work in a data center with so much noise I can barely hear myself, but people on the other end can't even hear the noise. Its amazing to be honest.
  • Unlike the Plantronics E50 and Plantronics M70, it actually DOES have some background wind/noise cancelling ability (and costs twice as much).
  • Boom and over-the-ear connector rotate easily to adapt to Left or Right ear placement or to flatten to fit in the pocket
  • Amazing noise canceling! This is a great headset for taking calls while driving. I've used it extensively while doing rideshare. People hear me nice and clear. The battery life is great as well.
  • Battery seems to last a long while (Advertised to be 7 hours, but I have not used until it was dead yet)

What customers say about "Features"
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset, Four-mic Active Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Noise and Acoustic Echo Cancellation
  • 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.
Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Headset
  • The extra buttons make accessing various features relatively simple.
  • One feature that I REALLY like is the charging wire. It has a magnetic coupling so there is no inserting a mini usb into the device.
  • While using gps navigation like apple maps or google maps it does not properly communicate with Iphone6 so voice instructions do not transmit (this is never a problem with the E50 or M70) which defeats the feature of hands-free driving.
  • The voice command features I didn't expected would mean not much to me, but they prove to be very convenient if you are already wearing the headset.
  • The Voyager Legend doesn't skimp on other features, either. You have access to a completely hands free device at all times. When a call comes in, you will be told who is calling and then asked if you want to answer the call.

What customers say about "Power"
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset, Four-mic Active Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Noise and Acoustic Echo Cancellation
  • 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 Legend Bluetooth Headset
  • Charging - the proprietary new charging connector by Plantronics may send a lot of loyal customers in the opposite direction. But I genuinely believe they did this out of consumrs best interest cos of the really tiny usb ports.
  • I would strongly recommend buying the charging case with it. I charge the case up once a week (for couple hours) and then it will charge the headset every night when I put up for the night, with out being plug in.
  • Percentage charged is shown on your notification screen on phone.
  • Need a special adapter/cable OR charging case to charge. Does not use Micro USB by default.
  • I've owned this for about 8 months and already am unable to get more than 2 hours of talk time between full charges.
