Plantronics Voyager Pro – performance based bluetooth headset


Plantronics’ latest Bluetooth headset has been unveiled to Tech Digest and, we have to admit, it looks pretty good. Whereas the Discover range, which we’ve featured before, focuses on style, the Voyager Pro is much more concerned with performance.

First off, there is a huge emphasis on sound quality. Stuart Bradshaw of Plantronics explains: “On a noisy street, where a lot of people use headsets it’s important to have clarity in what you’re hearing.”

The headset contains Plantronics’ audioiQ2 technology – which they claim is the latest enhancement to DSP technology. The two built in microphones – one for voice and one for ambient sounds – should both act as noise cancellers to minimise background noise.

The phone has some nifty features too, such as voice prompts for low battery and mute status and there is also the option to connect the headset with multi-points. This means you could set it up to your work phone as well as your personal one.

The headset will cost you £79 and is available first through Orange on 1st July.

Expect a Tech Digest review in the next week or so.
