Ingeniously simple. That's the Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth earpiece. Blending easy connectivity with dual-microphone, noise-canceling AudioIQ2 technology and patented ear tips for a stable, comfortable fit, this elegantly simple earpiece lets you listen clearly and makes you sound sharp, even in noisy environments. With its innovative, rechargeable carrying case that can triple your talk time while you're on the go, you'll wonder why staying connected hasn't always been this simple.
Minimal in size, maximum in performance, the Discovery 975 offers an elegant simplicity that conceals its advanced sound technologies. For starters, an easy-to-access button offers one-touch control over powering the earpiece on and off and answering and ending calls. A subtle white indicator light flashes only once when the earpiece is powered on. The earpiece features a dedicated volume control that's also a handy mute control. Voice prompts keep you in the know when your Bluetooth connection is lost, the earpiece is on mute, or the battery is running low.
The Discovery 975 also features a patented gel ear tip that offers a supremely comfortable and secure fit. The flexible silicone tip makes it effortless to take the earpiece on and off while the unique shape of the tip provides a stable fit that doesn't interfere with glasses.
The innovative case charges your earpiece while storing it. An LCD shows the battery and power levels. View larger.
You've already got enough to think about without having to worry about how to connect your earpiece to your cell phone. Thanks to QuickPair technology and universal connectivity, pairing the Discovery 975 with virtually any Bluetooth-enabled phone couldn't be any easier.
Simply turn your phone's Bluetooth feature on, turn the earpiece on, and follow the commands on your phone. It's that simple. The Discovery 975 also features multipoint technology, so you can pair it with two Bluetooth devices such as your personal mobile phone and your work smartphone, keeping you connected wherever you are.
Ingeniously Advanced AudioIQ2 and WindSmart Technologies
The superior sound performance of the Discovery 975 begins with dual-mic AudioIQ2 technology. Dual microphones simultaneously capture your voice and cancel background noise so you can be heard clearly, while the earpiece's 20-band equalizer delivers rich, natural voice quality. Meanwhile, AudioIQ2 technology automatically adjusts incoming calls to clear, comfortable listening levels.
When you're outside in windy conditions, don't panic. Plantronics' advanced WindSmart technology offers three layers of protection against the elements: grooved vents deflect the wind, acoustic fabrics block the wind, and electronic filters remove wind noise.
Ingenious On-the-Go Charging Triples Your Talk Time
Perfect for airplane travel or extended down-time while you're on the road, the Discovery 975 includes a handsome and innovative carrying case with an internal battery that charges your earpiece while you store it. This means that you can stay connected until it's time to shut your cell phone down, and the case will recharge the earpiece while it’s being stored.
When fully charged, the case's internal battery has enough power to triple your earpiece's overall talk/standby time while you're traveling. An easy-to-read LCD shows the battery and earpiece levels, and it also displays a Bluetooth symbol if it is connected to a phone. A handy eject button makes it easy to pop the earpiece out of the case.
Sounding good every time doesn't get much easier or more ingenious than this.
The Discovery 975 earpiece is backed by Plantronics' one-year limited warranty.

I have personally used Bluetooth headsets for several years now with my most recent favorite being the Plantronics Discovery 925, which the 975 succeeds. While the Discovery 975 is much improved, some annoyances still remain.
Pairing the 975 to my Blackberry Curve and Motorola Droid was easy. After charging, I turned it on and set my phone to search for devices. After it was found, I typed in the pairing code and that was it.
The fit is one of the most important features of a headset for me. I have tried plenty that were either difficult to put on, were uncomfortable, or would not stay on. The unique gel ear tips on the 975, which come in 3 sizes, allow me to insert it in my ears in such a way that it is snug but not too uncomfortable, using what they call a "stabilizer loop." That being said, I have never had a headset so comfortable that I could leave it in all day.Read more ›

2. Discovery 975 and Voyager equal
The audio quality on the Discovery 975 was definitely NOT as good as the Jawbone, whose noise cancelling was far preferable. On my old Jawbone, I often called people from airports right under the speakers and people didn't even know I was in the airport. With the Discovery and Voyager, people definitely comment on hearing background noise. Once with the Discovery 975, I was opening a printer paper package. My caller said it sounded like a lightening storm. A similar noise wouldn't have garnered a comment on the Jawbone.

The recharging case for the Discovery 975 is the deal maker for me. If you use a blue tooth headset less than 4 hours per day, I would definitely chose the Jawbone Prime. However, the battery life and battery charging case on the Plantronics means that I can use the headset all day instead of 4 hours. My Jawbone was usually dead by noon. With the Discovery, I can talk on it for two hours, head into a meeting, tuck it into its protective case, and its recharged and ready at the end of the meeting. I almost always make it to the end of the day with plenty of charge using the Discovery.

I have an ear that typically can't stand an insert ear bud. The only ear bud headphone that works for me belong to my 6 year old's Barbie MP3. Nonetheless, the Discovery standard ear bud DOES work for me.Read more ›
I then tried the voyager 520 since it had a smaller ear loop. I thought that one had worse sound quality, and actually fell out of my ear easier than the 510. So, I went back to using the 510.
Then, I lost the 510, and hence, my reason for researching new headsets.
After all of this, I had figured out that, along with sound quality, stable fit was a hugely important quality for me. I actually went to a few local cell phone stores to try different headsets on and narrowed it down to the Plantronics Discovery 975 or the Motorola one that is supposed to work kind of like the jawbone. It had a piece that went pretty far into year ear that sensed the sound of your voice through your own bones.
I ended up going with the Discovery 975 for several reasons. 1)the 975 has voice dial and last number redial capabilities (which I had gotten used to on my old Plantronics sets and liked a lot). I understand this feature doesn't work with every type of phone, but on my old motorola flip phones, and on my current Blackberry Tour, it does work. 2) I could get the 975 from Amazon directly (and more cheaply than at local stores), who I trust more than 3rd party sellers online. 3) I liked the idea of having a case for the headset to keep it safe in my purse. That it was a charging case was even better. 4) the reviews for sound quality for the 975 seemed better for my purposes.Read more ›
