"inexpensive, comfortable, medium performance"
17 May 2010
Pros: Inexpensive, surprisingly comfortable, good battery, not so concerned about losing it like I did my $90 unit, got at WalMart in a hurry for $30. Has not yet been flinty with the bluetooth connection like my last unit which was flighty as all heck.
Cons: kind of quiet, don't think it has a volume control, half the range of my last one so I keep the phone on my belt, the other I went all over the house without carrying the phone. Did not get a car charger at the $30 price at WalMart.
Plantronics Explorer 230: Now people can hassle me even when I'm driving
12 December 2011
Summary: Yes, I've been trying to refuse having one of these pressed upon me, as driving is now the only quality alone time I seem to get these days. 'It's very hard to set up, it'll take ages.' I pleaded with my boss, trying to weasel out of having one. 'No it isn't. Shut up. Get back to work.' Replied my boss, effortlessly combining several of his one-size-fits-all responses to employee concerns into one decisive broadside. And it was easy to set up.
Pros: Good quality, call quality is quite good, battery life good
Cons: Can't use 'driving' as an excuse for ignoring people anymore
Summary: I have been using this for 2 years or lil more.. Used it with Sony Err, Blackberry and iPhone - Works perfectly fine. Good voice quality at both the ends. I believe voice at the other end breaks/, when the handset has low battery power or in heavy traffic, as noise cancellation isnt a feature. i have charged it after 6 months, without using it.. and it continues to work perfectly fine.
Pros: value for money. good reception.
Cons: not recommended for people on move regularly , as it lacks noise cancellation
Summary: i loved my plantronics headset, it was great and extremely comfortable, i lost it and thought id upgrade to a Blueant Z9I, biggest mistake ever, its crap all over, have not found one thing that is better about it then my cheap as Plantronics headset.
Pros: Lightweight, easy to use, extremely comfortable, good battery life
Summary: I bought this a year and a half ago at CVS when I was on a trip and realized I'd left my Bluetooth at home. It is the most comfortable headset I've ever tried. (And I've tried a dozen or so, because I keep losing them!) The sound was good on both ends of the call, no static problems at all. Battery life is great (8 hours talk, 200 hours standby). I have a car adapter for USB, so if it does run down, I can charge it in the car. Minimum charging time is only 20 minutes.
