Hard to Say it is Good

Summary: I replaced a Plantronics M155 with the Plantronics Voyager after having poor bluetooth headset performance issues on phone calls (over cellular or wireless access points). No improvement. It is either the iPhone 5s, or local wireless interference. I hoped the improved tech of the Legend would help. It has not.
Summary: I have both a 5 and 5s. I have two of these headsets and the charging case. Both headsets are pairs to both phones and one is in the charging case so I am never without my headset. When they are working well, they sound good and last a long time. The charging case ensures my headset is never dead and at least the case takes a micro USB to charge it. Often times though I get poor call quality if the headset is in my left ear and the phone is on my right side belt.
Summary: Tired of my colleagues complaining about the terrible voice quality they would hear when using my iPhone headset, I decided to shell out the $100 for the Voyager bluetooth headset. Unfortunately the voice quality (what the listener on the other end hears) is not very good. I get people saying I sound robotic and digitized.
Summary: Just got mine via company issue. Initially features look nice, but the singular most important killer app for me is the old Voyager Pro's ability to access the iPhone's built in voice recognition with the press of the earpiece button, and say "Call the office" (all without any configuration).
Summary: I can't rate the Voyager Legend because I don't have it but I do have the Pro+ and I was looking to upgrade to the Legend but after reading the reviews, I'm having 2nd & 3rd thoughts. The same issues that I'm having with the Pro+ are being reported on this forum for the Legend. I simply can't hear on this device and I don't remember it being that way when I first purchased.
Pros: Love the fit! This was the first earpiece that I could wear all day and not be bothered with how it felt on my ear. I loved how the earbud didn't totally protrude inside my ear canal.
Summary: I agree one hundred percent with Supermandru. Didn't mean to buy it, I bought it on hammacher and schlemmer and had no idea it was platronics or i'd have not even given it a second thought. We've had platronics in the past and they're terrible. I've had it for 4 days. I'm packing it up tonight.. Even while the phone is ringing it's full of static and crackling. It's absolutely terrible, i can't hear half of the conversation we try to have....
Pros: Noise cancellation is great. Fiance and I both talk on a regular on bluetooth headsets and he said it was great.
Cons: User audio is TERRIBLE. I didn't find it to be comfortable with any of the fitted ear pieces (not necessarily their fault). Even with it being brand new i can't keep it paired even when i initiate a call from it!! It'll disconnect suddenly.
