Plantronics Voyager 5200 Review- Best Bluetooth Headset around today
The Plantronics Voyager 5200 has been voted “Best Bluetooth Headset” on the market and Editor’s choice by PC Magazine, for extreme, mission-essential voice calling. It is used as a benchmark by tech editors by which other headsets are measured.
What is even more reassuring is the fact that this headset is made by the same company that made the headset for Neil Armstrong when he landed on the moon in 1969, which tells you a lot about the Plantronics brand (now known as Poly) as a whole.
In the USA, this is the preferred, go-to bluetooth headset for people due to its robust build-quality, sound-quality and reliability. The Voyager 5200 headset is engineered to deliver, period. It spots a 2.25 inch behind-the-ear unit with a 2.75-inch-long red-and-black boom.
So if you are wearing it on, you can be sure everyone around you will know you’re doing some serious talking and/or listening. If you are looking for something a little more discreet (for vanity reasons), this is definitely not the device for you. But if you are a professional that demands a top of the range bluetooth headset, you will find the Voyager 5200 a dream-come-true device that works as hard as you.
The main buttons, on/off and volume buttons, are found at the back and on top of the headset; these buttons are designed in a way that is easy to locate and distinguish with your fingers.
Located on the boom, are the call and voice command buttons. You can swing the boom around so that you can wear the headset on either the right or left ear. The set comes with three different ear-tip sizes to give you the perfect in-ear fit.
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Features
For a bluetooth headset, the Voyager 5200 has all the pertinent functions and features, and a little more. You can pair it on multiple devices via NFC or Bluetooth.
One of the cool parts about this device is that it announces your caller’s name and you can answer or reject that call with just your voice.
Its built-in voice command recognition feature lets you dictate text messages and request for directions. If you misplaced this headset, the Plantronics Hub – a smartphone app, will beep it to help you locate where you left it. The hub also lets you know how much battery life you have on the Voyager 5200.
The Voyager 5200 headset possibly has the best bluetooth range. With your smartphone in sight, you have approximately about 40 to 60 feet of distance-space to move about. But for optimal sound quality, it is recommended that you stay within 40 feet. With proper noise cancellation technology, background sounds, such as road traffic, will not interfere with your conversations on the Voyager 5200.
This headset gives you roughly about 7-hour of battery life, and you have the option of purchasing a charging case, which holds two more battery charges.
The Plantronics Voyager series are known for offering industry-standard voice quality that you can depend on for years to come. If you want a headset that works like a dream, you will be more than pleased with the Plantronics Voyager 5200. Highly recommended for the working-professionals!
