Will not stay in my ear!

Donatello57, Plantronics
28 January 2016
  • Excerpt: Had the M55 for a week now. The sound quality is good and the setup was easy. Problem is that it keeps falling out of my ear. The ear insert is a terrible design. Wish I would have ordered a Bluetooth with the piece that goes over the ear like my last one.

Good but one defect

JJJL, Walmart
23 September 2015
  • Summary: Excellent reception but the on/off switch is too sensitive. If you barely touch it, such as when you want to adjust the fit of the bluetooth while on a call, you are too easily disconnected. Previous models were much better with the location of the on/off switch. Be careful!

Dont think I want another one

Arthur L., Newegg
14 August 2015
  • Summary: Its pros of good clear connection, good volume and secure fit out weigh the bad button, but just barely. I would definitely buy Plantronics again (I have used 3 different models over the years) but not this one. I would look for one that looks like this but has an improved button.
  • Pros: stays in the ear well without the suction effect of the ear bud approach but you get good sound in all but the worst circumstances. I have it with me all the time and often take it off and hang it from my shirt pocket or my t shirt collar. The ear hook holds the unit s well and I have never had i...
  • Cons: This thing has a super sensitive button that makes calls if a strong breeze hits it! But at the same time sometimes it just doesn't pay attention to you when you try to answer a call by touching it!! VERY frustrating and inconvenient. It is not good protocol to "But Dial" a client!!

Fine for listening to the radio

Marshmellow, Walmart
18 July 2015
  • Summary: I find the center button gets pressed accidentally often when I am trying to adjust the volume or shut off the device. Other than that it works fine & I find the size of the clear inner ear piece fits better well which is a relief since there are no other choices in size.

Voice calling needs help

PapaSmurf2k1, Walmart
9 June 2015
  • Summary: It works fine, except when I try to use the voice dialing. No matter if there's noise around me or not, I find it easier to dial normally than to be frustrated with the inaccurate voice interpretation of whom I'm trying to call. .

Didn't like as well as the M50

madgreek, Walmart
31 May 2015
  • Summary: Did not like the ear piece. In my opinion it wasn't as easy to operate as the M50, which is no longer sold unless you find it on ebay or amazon, which I did. I'm keeping the M55 for back-up.

Reception Line-of-sight Only, Can't Find Updater

xdkb739w6hmoxhot, Plantronics
28 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Unless the earpiece is in line-of-sight from my iPhone, the sound cuts-out frequently. My old Jawbone had much fewer interruptions. Maybe it buffered more data? Maybe it's antena was better? I can't find the firmware/software updater program that works with the M55.

good, but failed to convince

Chris R., Newegg
4 March 2015
  • Summary: I so much wanted to like this one. Perhaps there are too many features, perhaps this is a knock-off that does not work as well as the original, but whatever it is, I can no longer tolerate the inconsistency. I will either replace with another style, or do without a headset.
  • Pros: Lightweight, connects to two phones easily, audio is clear
  • Cons: connections are confusing, phone 1 and phone 2 get swapped, sometimes media audio works, sometimes not. Connecting calls takes so long I hit the button twice, and it disconnects. I sneezed and it called, the button is just too easy to hit. The connect tones are swapped from previous model M50.
