The following is a comprehensive review of the Voyager Legend wireless Bluetooth Headset manufactured by Plantronics.
Design & Build Quality
Design-wise, the Plantronics Voyager Legend headset is made of a comfortable, flexible rubber material with a rigid black plastic control panel and stainless steel windscreens covering the microphone boom that contains three microphones with active Digital Signal Processing (for noise cancellation). It is protected from damage due to moisture (e.g. sweat, rain) by P2i technology which means that a “nano-coating is applied during the manufacturing process, resulting in invisible liquid repellent properties that also makes the headset more reliable.” The ear tips a clear silicone material and comes in three sizes. To change it, you must gently push in and rotate counterclockwise to remove it. You then align the desired size tip with the slots and rotate clockwise while pushing in to lock it in place.
This headset can also be worn on either ear by rotating the microphone boom up to a vertical position, twisting the earpiece to the other side, and finally lowering the boom into the correct position.
Located on the portion of the headset that fits behind your ear are the Volume Up and Down button, LED charging status light, Power button, and proprietary magnetic charging connection. Also from the above photo, you can see the Call button located at the base of the microphone boom and earpiece (at the top in this photo).
The underside of the headset shows the Voice/Mute/Play/Pause button.
The charging cable is quite short and only measures nine inches long. And since this is a proprietary cable with the ability to magnetically clasp onto the headset to charge.
When you first receive the Plantronics Voyager Legend UCWireless Bluetooth Headset, it has enough of a charge to update the firmware and pair it. The first task is to update the firmware if necessary by connecting the headset to the computer, going to www.plantronics.com/myheadset-updater, choosing my headset, downloading the updater, allowing the headset’s settings to be read, change any of the headset’s settings, then click update. You are able to change the following headset settings: the voice caller announcement (on/off), the language, mute prompt (yes/no), mute reminder (15 minutes/5 minutes/off), smart sensors which allow you to pick up the headset to answer a call (on/off), streaming audio (yes/no), voice answer (yes/no), wideband audio or HD voice (yes/no).
The first time that you turn on the Voyager Legend it is ready to pair and the LED status light flashes blue and red alternately, so all you have to do is make sure your phone’s Bluetooth is on and be sure to make it visible to other devices. After finding and selecting the headset as “PLT_Legend”. Usually, you are not required to enter any passcode (but just in case, if asked you can enter four zeros or “0000”). After pairing you will hear the Plantronics Voyager Legend say “Pairing successful”. When pairing an additional phone, you can either press the Voice button and say “Pair mode” or just hold the Call button until it says “Pairing” and the LED starts flashing blue and red. You are able to pair more than one phone to the Voyager Legend and thus are able to answer calls from either phone.
How to Use?
Wearing the headset is comfortable after finding the correct eartip to use from the Plantronics Voyager Legend Eartip kit and then covering it with the foam cover. The flexibility of the arm that goes behind your ear makes putting on and adjusting the headset easy.
The Bluetooth range was tested and found to be about 33 feet with both cell phones, which is what is to be expected. If you get too far away from the phone, it alerts you by telling you that “Phone is disconnected”, but will reconnect when you come within range.
The battery life seemed to be on par with the specifications for this headset, which is about seven hours of talk time or 11 days on standby. When the headset runs out of battery, the 1.5-hour charging time using Plantronics Voyager Legend Charger.
How does Voyager Legend work?
The Voyager Legend allows you to answer a call by using one of three methods: putting on the headset, saying “Answer” after the caller is announced, or pressing the call button. The call quality is impressive. The audio Digital Signal Processing (DSP) works well canceling out most background sounds. To end a call you have to press the Call button since there are no voice commands nor is there an option to remove the headset to hang up. In fact, removing the headset will transfer the call to your cell phone.
To mute a call, you need to press the Voice button on the underside of the microphone boom. There is a notification that you can set up to remind you that Mute is on. You can also press the Voice button to find out the amount of talk-time left and what phones are connected. If you press the Voice button and say “What can I say?”, you will be given the list of voice commands that you can use. These include: “Pair mode”, “Am I connected?”, “Check battery”, “Call back”, and “Cancel”.
When a call comes in, you have to option to reject the call. To do this, after the caller is announced you are prompted with “Answer or ignore”. You can either say “Ignore”, or you may also press the Call button for two seconds to reject a call, after which the headset will respond with “Call ignored”. If you wish to return the call, double tapping the Call button or pressing the Voice button and saying “Call back” will call the last number that you either dialed or received.
To voice dial, someone, you press the Call button for two seconds, wait for a prompt, then say “Call <name or number>”. This headset is capable of pausing and playing streaming music by either holding the Voice button for two seconds or setting the headset down or picking it up. However, this headset is a mono Bluetooth headset so listening to music is a rather flat and unexciting experience.
