  • Subsequent Pairings: To manually place headset in Pairing Mode, begin with the headset turned off, then press the call control button for 8-10 seconds until the headset indicator light flashes red and blue.

Customer Reviews

It's very easy to use and has good sound quality.
Megan
When I called Plantronics, they told me they would send a new one to me, but I would have to cover the return postage for the old defective one.
CFox
I can hear perfectly clearly, and no one complains about excess noise, or tells me it sounds like I'm talking in a tunnel!

In my search for the perfect bluetooth headset, they ALL require compromises... it sounds great, but it's uncomfortable to wear for extended periods... it's lightweight, but the person on the other end can't always hear me... works great, but the batteries die in the middle of an average day or the volume can't be raised loud enough... you get the idea.

Well, Plantronics has come out with the Voyager 520, and it requires, for me, the minimum amount of compromise of any headset I've tried, and I've tried a LOT!

First, it utilizes a soft rubber ear bud which is cone shaped to fit in your ear canal, but is soft enough to not irritate your ears. The hook is made of firm plastic near the head set, then transitions into a soft, clear rubber for the portion of the hook that rests on your ear, so that the hook conforms to your ear, rather then forcing your ear to conform to it! The ear bud directs the sound of the person you're speaking with into your ear, providing sufficiently loud volume while blocking out external noise! You'll actually need to lower the volume on this headset, if you're using it in a quiet environment! Now that's a nice change.

First compromise... (yeah, there are still compromises, even on this head set!), it's larger then many other bt head sets. BUT... it's lightweight, and it's size allows for battery life that goes on and on and on. While I'd prefer a smaller size (think Samsung WEP 200, Nokia BH 800), I'll take the moderately larger form factor, if it delivers better sound quality in both directions, and longer battery life, and the 520 delivers on both counts (again, compromise...)

Second compromise... noise cancellation.

I've tried them all: Moto, Jabra, Cardio, Plantronics 320 (junk), Jawbone (2 stars), and nothing came close to outperforming my trusty old Plantronics 510. Funky form factor, but great battery life and excellent sound quality. The new Plantronics 520 comes close in sound quality, but is more comfortable and looks better. Overall, a solid performer and recommended.

[Updated 12/29/2010]:
I have had two of the 520's now. Beyond my initial comments below (items 3+), over time, I have learned two things of significant value.

1) The rubber ear hook will detach itself from it's base (black arm) over time. The first time I tried using adhesive to reattach it; using super glue (my error) dissolved the rubber right in my hands. Replacing it, the second 520's rubber hook in almost totally detached...Plantronics will not assist in giving any guidance...other than 'buy another headset.' Was rather disappointed they wouldn't provide 'any' guidance. As the rubber progressively detachs, the phone is increasingly prone to not staying on your ear (duh<g>).

2) Handset-to-Headset ange is deplorable. With my 510, I could leave the phone on my desk, and wander through the house during a call, and easily get 30' (with doors/walls in-between) before audio started fuzzing out. With the 520s, range is -very- short. There are occasions where, if I've had the phone on my belt, and the headset on the opposing ear, I'd get static when turning my head. With the handset on my desk, the 520 headset will not let me go more than about 6'--direct line of sight--from the handset (iPhone 4). Even with the iPhone 3G previously, range was deplorable though not 'quite' as bad as with the i'4.

3) The concerns about the docking station that have been made are way overblown and don't quite represent the situation. It's not that they give you something you have to 'put together', per se. Rather they send you the docking station (assembled) with the charger separate. By the way, it's the exact same charger you get with the 510, in case you are upgrading.

Basically you get another '510' type charger -and- a docking station.

Hello People. Here is an honest review for those who are looking for a good headset. I purchased the Voyager 510 over two years ago to go with my Katana phone. The problem I was having with the 510 was that the signal would drop a lot, so much that I called Plantronic and they told me that the Katana was not compatible with the 510. However, they're customer service was excellent. They told me that cell phones control headset, headsets don't control phones. Cell phones send out signals and headsets pick up the signal. But to make sure I didn't have a defected headset, they sent me a new 510 hoping that will solve the problem. However it didn't. So I was convinced that it was the headset, not my Katana.

My wife and I decided to upgrade our phones, so I purchased the Samsung Instinct and I wanted a Bluetooth headset that would work with my new phone, since I was convinced that the 510 was not a good headset. So I purchased the Plantronic Discovery 925. I really was excited when I received the 925.
However, here are my Pros and Cons of the 925:
Pros:
1. It looked great and its small size was great compared to my 510.
2. The recharging case was a neat feature.
3. One button controlled everything.
Cons:
1. It was the most uncomfortable headset I ever wore; so much that it hurt my ear.
2. The sound was not very loud compared to my 510.
3. The recharging case was very difficult to place the headset in.

Summary: I returned the 925. It just caused too much pain to my ear. In the meantime I continued to use my 510, which I notice was working pretty well, no drop calls with my new Instinct. Still not too sure about the 510, I purchased the Jawbone. Once again, I was really excited when I received the Jawbone.
