Plantronics Voyager Pro HD Bluetooth Headset Review
20 December 2011
Excerpt: For a couple years now my go-to Bluetooth headset has been the Voyager by Plantronics . I have used several versions of it since the first one ( read one of my previous reviews here ), so I was excited to do a review of the latest version, the Plantronics Voyager Pro HD . I have been extremely pleased with every Voyager that I have ever owned, so I was almost sure it couldn’t get any better. But boy, was I wrong. Let me start out the review giving Plantronics some props.
Pros: Excellent all-day comfort, Excellent auto-sensing feature, Excellent battery life and call quality
Cons: It is a big headset, Vocalyst service eventually costs money
Plantronics Voyager PRO HD Bluetooth Headset Review
22 August 2010
Conclusion: Although both the previous Voyager PRO+ and the PRO HD are identical in design the same does not apply for their performance since i both the received and transmitted audio quality of the Voyager PRO HD is perhaps the best I’ve ever heard from a Bluetooth headset, at least from an single earpiece one (not stereo).
Pros: - Design (For Some), - Audio Quality (Transmit/Receive), - Dual Noise Canceling Mics, - Smart Sensor (Just Wear It To Answer The Call), - A2DP Streaming, - Battery Life, - Vocalyst Service, - My Headset Application, - On-Screen Battery Meter (iOS/Android), - Multipoint Technology (Simultaneous Connection With 2 Devices), - Windsmart Technology, - Price (Current Price Cuts)
Cons: - Bulky Size (For Some), - Smart Sensor Needs Getting Used To
Conclusion: With its integrated proximity sensor, the comfortable, great-sounding Plantronics Voyager Pro HD lets you switch calls between handset and headset simply by placing it on your ear. Only if it weren't so big.
Pros: Stellar sound quality. SmartSensor proximity-sensor technology works well. Supremely comfortable. Very good sound quality.
Cons: Still larger than what most people want to wear, at least in public. Vocalyst service costs extra after the first year.
Conclusion: The Plantronics Voyager Pro delivers the highest-caliber Bluetooth voice quality, in almost any environment. The Aliph Jawbone Prime wins with wind noise handling, but the Voyager Pro still nabs our Editors' Choice.
Summary: Take advantage of the Voyager Pro’s impressive wind reduction during calls--and expect great audio quality, to boot. You’ll have to be content with this Bluetooth headset's chunky design, though.
Pros: Superb inbound and outbound call quality, Impressive handling of calls in windy environments
Cons: Bulky design overall, Some controls initially hard to find by feel
Excerpt: While the adoption rate for Bluetooth headsets has been increasing over the years, it is nowhere near the saturation point. Could the Plantronics Voyager Pro be the headset to finally shake the market?
Pros: Comfortable fit, Great call quality, Ability to sync to multiple devices
Summary: The biggest drawback to the Plantronics Voyager Pro is that some people will find its design too serious, or too bulky. That said, it’s one of the most comfortable we’ve tested, and the noise and wind cancellation are both effective. The $129 Aliph Jawbone Prime offers better style and comparable quality, while the $99 Jabra BT530 also offers a sleeker design and good sound.
Summary: Pushing the limits of headset technology, the Voyager PRO is the most advanced noise-canceling Bluetooth headset available. Two noise-canceling mics on a boom, AudioIQ² technology with its adaptive 20-band equalizer, and three layers of WindSmart technology ensure that you hear every word and that your voice is heard clearly despite the noise around you.
Excerpt: The Plantronics Voyager Pro HD is made up of a single silicon-eartipped earphone , which swivels horizontally to allow the headset to be worn on either ear. The microphone also swivels vertically, so it can be swung up out of the way when not in use.

Summary: Plantronics’ Voyager Pro HD headset has a good range of useful features built in, like an intelligent sensor that switches between headset and phone speaker when the headset is removed. It wasn’t always comfortable in our testing and it’s slightly larger than other headsets, but it has excellent sound quality and excellent battery life thanks to smart internal circuitry.
