PLANTRONICS Voyager 855 Stereo Bluetooth Headset

Prose:

  • Multiple earplugs to fit any ear: I use the foam earplugs to block sound and form a custom fit for my ear canals. Snug!
  • Amazing Battery Life: I've used these for an entire afternoon of yard work while listening to music, and the battery for my smartphone ran out before the Plantronics battery did! Efficient!
  • Superb sound quality: I'm always impressed by the audio quality presented by these little headphones. You can tell the difference between an mp3 file encoded at 128 and one encoded at 160! Entrancing!
  • Clear microphone for phone calls: I've talked to friends who have to stop using their bluetooth headset so I can understand what they're saying, but I've never had anyone complain when using my Plantronics headset during a call. Satisfying!


Kahn's:

  • The length of the cord for the second earpiece seems too long; it was always tickling the back of my neck, but not in a nice way. I simply doubled over about an inch of cord (taking up two inches of slack), wrapped the doubled-up portion in a nice black wire-tie and called it a day.
  • It's a bluetooth headset, not those trendy earbuds that all the cool kids wear to listen to their cool kid music. As such, some people will cast inquisitive (and sometimes demeaning) glances at your choice of audio headwear. HOWEVER, I can assure you that these people have never appreciated their music through a Plantronics Voyager 855 Stereo Bluetooth Headset. Instead of being put off by their rough demeanor, quietly pity them, as I do.
