About the Product
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.
Plantronics has just announced the latest version of its Voyager Pro headset. The HD version has high-definition audio and support for Plantronics apps and services. It also has a Smart Sensor technology that knows to automatically transfer calls to the headset when you place it on the ear.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
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)
Plantronics Voyager PRO
  • Bad sound quality: I get reports from listeners of echos, clipped speech and low sound volume regularly. I know it's not the cell service b/c when I switch to the device directly listeners say "Ah, that's much better now."
  • Great range: phone has been on one side of house, and I've been outside on other side of house (30 yards and 6 walls or so) with not even a hiccup.
  • Noise cancellation is one of the best: People could hear me perfectly fine while testing in front of a fan, with no interference. Works just as well in the car.
  • Standy time lasts a very long time about 120 hours. Talk time is very good at about 6 hours. It comes with an AC charger.
  • Volume could be louder. You can hear it fine, but if you get a 'low talker' on the line, you'll be asking them to repeat.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Plantronics Voyager PRO
  • Good wind noise reduction when outside.
  • 10 meter distance from the phone is solid, battery life is stellar, sound is good, stays on/in my ear easily, buttons are intuitive, can mute the phone from headset.
  • The boom mic can be swung up to switch quickly from one ear to the other, to put it in your pocket, or to get out of the way, which I don't really use it for.
  • The ear mic has a very soft rubber/silicone pad that rests gently on your ear with a few different sizes to match you ear. It feels and works much better than the 975.
  • Even with interchangeable ear pieces, it does not fit perfectly in my ear. I have to readjust it once in a while.
  • Button location is troublesome. Volume rocker on the top of the unit will push it off my ear if used, and putting button on mic shaft constantly moves mic out of correct position.

What customers say about "Power"
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.
Plantronics Voyager PRO
  • Reasonable battery life - I can talk for 4 or 5 hours in a day with no problems.
  • Battery life is great. I can see it lasting for days on here-and-there phone conversations with hours of stand-by.
  • The battery life is excellent/very good. I can go through the whole day of moderate use (about 4 hours of talk time) with a single overnight charge. I've gone two days without recharging.
  • MicroUSB interface means that I can use my cell phone charger to charge this (and vice-versa).
  • After fully charging overnight, the device will report "battery medium" after about an hour of use. To make it worse, it actually says "Battery medium" in a British female voice during a call, causing me to miss words of the other party. *This cannot be disabled.
