Summary: The Plantronics Savor M1100 is a powerful little headset with great features, excellent audio quality, and an affordable price tag to boot.
Pros: The Plantronics Savor M1100 is small, lightweight, comfortable to wear, and has a dedicated power switch plus a dedicated voice recognition button. It features multipoint, A2DP streaming, voice alerts, and access to Plantronics Vocalyst, an automated phone service that lets you send e-mail, texts, and even tweets just with your voice. The overall audio quality is fantastic as well.
Cons: The Plantronics Savor M1100 only has a single volume button. The Vocalyst service is only free for the first year, plus you have to upgrade to the Pro level to get the speech-to-text feature.
Conclusion: Bluetooth headsets have been an indispensable aid to the business user. Now considered as commodity items with prices starting below £10 for basic models, one may question the need to pay more. Heavily invested in the field, Plantronics understands that a premium headset needs innovative features to succeed. The Savor M1100 is a simple-looking headset that belies its £50 price tag. Good build quality and a snug in-ear fit are Plantronics' hallmarks.
Conclusion: The Plantronics Savor Bluetooth headset doesn't perform quite as well as it should, considering its innovative, 3-mic design; it looks sharp, though, and A2DP and Vocalyst support give it an edge.
Pros: Comfortable to wear, and stays put once fitted. Sounds good in the earpiece. Voice-driven interface in two directions. Includes A2DP streaming.
Cons: Iffy noise cancellation despite the 3-mic design. Vocalyst services are too expensive. Fiddly volume control. Short battery life.

Jag är rätt kräsen när det gäller vad jag köper. Bluetooth-headset är en sån sak. Jag har testat Jawbone tidigare, vilket var grymt bra förutom om man har skägg, vilket stör ut hur Jawbone fungerar. Ganska löjligt, men helt sant.
