answers to you (view larger).

Ideal for the mobile professional who needs wireless communications anywhere they work, the Voyager Legend can conveniently connect to your favorite mobile devices--smartphone or tablet--to ensure a seamless connection regardless of the device being used.
You can also use the free MyHeadset app to display the battery meter on your Android smartphone. Offering a balanced, comfortable design, the Voyager Legend has a 25 percent smaller body size (compared to the Voyager PRO HD) and features up to 7 hours of talk time.
Making and receiving calls is simple with Smart Sensor technology, which intuitively directs calls to your phone or headset and allows you to automatically answer by simply placing the headset on your ear--no buttons to press or applications to open. If you're already wearing it, the Voyager Legend announces who's calling and waits for you to say "Answer" or "Ignore" (an ignored call is sent straight to voicemail).
The Voyager Legend also locks the call-answer button when it is not worn to eliminate accidental calling, and also features enhanced voice alerts that announce remaining talk time, connection status, battery-level, and mute.
Offering a high level of audio quality, the Voyager Legend enables you to roam into any environment with the confidence that every word will be heard clearly. The Voyager Legend's precision-tuned triple microphones separate your speech from up to 80dB's of background noise while enhanced Windsmart technology provides three layers of wind protection for clear calls regardless of your environment. The enhanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides a more natural voice sound, while the wideband audio with noise cancellation capabilities enable clearer conversations over PC telephony. Finally, SoundGuard technology ensures listening comfort and acoustic limiting for protection against audio spikes.
More than just taking calls on your mobile phone or tablet, the Voyager Legend also includes the A2DP Bluetooth profile, enabling you to stream music, podcasts, GPS directions, and other audio.
Voyager Legend also features a magnetic, snap-fit connection that makes charging quick and easy. The magnetic connection reduces wear compared with a standard USB connection, and helps seal out moisture. The convenience of the magnetic connection also extends to the Voyager Legend’s accessories (sold separately) – the headset snaps directly into the pocket-sized mobile charging case, and drops into the desktop charging stand just as easily.
You can rely on the Voyager Legend to work as hard as you do, through rain, sweat and the inevitable coffee spill. Voyager Legend headsets are protected against sweat and moisture damage by P2i technology. The nano-coating is applied during the manufacturing process, resulting in invisible liquid repellent properties that also makes the headset more reliable, wherever your busy life takes you.

Review on the Voyager 5200 is live Plantronics Voyager 5200-UC Bluetooth Headset Bonus Bundle with Wall Charger, USB Dongle and Charging Case # 206110-01-B| For Smartphones, PC, MAC, Tablet, Softphones, VoIP Unified Communications
UPDATE (Apr 2016)
So Plantronics mailed out an announcement a day after I published the March update. Looks like they were listening...they've announced the Plantronics Voyager 5200. Its not available on Amazon yet.
I've been using it for a month now - will post my review here when the Voyager 5200 shows up on Amazon.
UPDATE (Mar 2016)
Ok, so I'm back after a long hiatus from this headset after switching over to a Plantronics Voyager Edge Wireless Bluetooth Headset with Charging Case - Black.
While this isn't a review based on the Edge; I must recommend/warn those who switch over to the Edge about its durability as well. The ear gels tore apart in a year and I had to buy replacements at Amazon. The replacements were either knockoffs or poor quality and met with the same fate. I just used the larger ear sized ear gels instead.... I think I've enlarged my ear canal in the process... goes with my elephant ears I guess.... About 4 months later - the headset and its charging case died (*sniff*)
I ruffled through my desk and found my Voyager Pro HD and it fired right up. That headset worked for about 6 months before the sensor (that helps switch between calls when you put it on/take it off your ears) went bad. Point to note though - it held up MUCH better than any of Plantronics' newer offerings..
While I pondered on what to buy next - I had one of those brain fart moments and bought the Plantronics Legend again. Plus side - it's a lot cheaper than what it used to be & the call quality, battery life is still best in class.
Plantronics - If you're listening; its been about 4 years since you released this headset. Wake up.... give us something better. And while you're having that morning coffee - think of these words as your mantra "NEW PRODUCTS, DURABILITY, LONGEVITY, CUSTOMER SATISFACTION, NEW PRODUCTS, DURABIL....."
UPDATE (Oct 2013)
Thought I'd add to my experience a year on from the last review.
It seems the headsets dont hold up like they used to. I had 3 of these - all of them have died on me. Let me explain -
1. Each of them start with the same issue - callers on the other end say I sound like Im really far away. The only option is to turn off the headset and use the phone instead.
2. Calls randomly drop off from the headset and transfer back onto the phone
3. Battery life has dropped over time.
I wish this experience was just me - but its happened to my wife's headset as well. After replacing my own with a second unit - I've come to the conclusion that these headsets dont hold up in the long run.
Hope this helps someone out there.
I've owned Plantronics headsets all the way from the glorious Discovery 640 days; moving on to the 975, Voyager PRO +, PRO UC+, UC V2 & M50.
I work as an IT consultant and attend many conference calls through the work day and sometimes require 2 headsets to keep going - Not that I'd like to; but even the best battery life these headsets offer fall short sometimes.
For anyone coming from a Platronics Voyager Pro series line of headsets :
Feels much better this time around. Im sure there are a few out there who may have this problem - the tip at the end of the boom mics of previous Voyager Pros use to shaped like a bulb (sort of...) and since the tips are made of metal - its easy to dent them if you accidentally place a heavy object on it. I've managed to do this on two of my headsets cos I threw them in with my laptop charger while getting into flights. The headsets continue to work fine - but the body is damaged. The Legend headset addresses this issue by giving the boom a smooth psuedo-cylindrical design
The call button has moved to the back of the boom mic as well - takes some getting used to; but better cos I dont accidentally end calls when trying to adjust it on my elephant ears.
The Volume control has been changed to give a more 'toggle/rocker' like feel as compared to the old headsets where the volume buttons used to be flush with the piece that goes behind the ear. You can be rest assured that you'll be doing volume control a lot more efficiently with the Legend
I'm not sure if this applies for everyone; but the reduction in size and weight of the new headset is definitely a blessing for those (like me) who wear glasses.
Ear Gels - Same as before; this is one aspect I dont really like about plantronics headsets cos they never seem to fit snug in your ear. While they more than make up for this flaw (in my opinion) with excellent volume levels and clarity; I wished they would come out with a design thats close to the in-ear buds you get on stereo headsets these days - they could just copy the earbuds on their own new Backbeat Go models.
Mute button - finally. The bottom of the boom mic comes with a dedicated button you can use for voice commands. This button can also be used to control Mute On/Off while on a call. This is a HUGE improvement as compared to Plantronics old approach where you'd have to press both the volume control keys to mute on/off. I'd never get it right most of the time cos of the issue with the buttons that sit flush with the headset (refer comment on that above) and I'd have to control mute from my handset to achieve this.
SMART APPS -
The apps that come with the headset arent much to brag about. The battery meter for one; is now available on Android. This used to be an iPhone exclusive feature.
Voice based answer/rejection of calls - This is 50/50. I found that I had to yell "ANSWERRRR!!!" at the headset for it to pick up my voice and answer a call for me. This is really strange cos this headset now comes with 3 microphones instead of two and still cant hear me??? To validate this further - I tried speaking to the caller at the same raised pitch I used to "answer" the call and they said I was talking way too loud or seemed agitated. Makes me think this is a software issue then - cos the phone can definitely hear me; it doesnt seem to process the actions well enough.
Smart sensor - Works much better that the original Pro UC +. The original went bad so quickly that Plantronics pulled it off shelves before ppl knew it and replaced it with V2. I've had them replace my headset because of the sensor issues on the original. They launched the Voyager PRO HD next - which was actually the stabilized version.
BATTERY LIFE - Offers the best battery in the market in my opinion. I've tried to wander off to other brands to check if I were missing on something and I've tried headsets from Motorola and Jabra. My most recent test was the Motorola Elite Sliver cos I wanted a break from the boom mic and thought the simple behind ear-concealed design was an excellent idea. I returned it in a week cos I faced issues with dropped calls, callers asking me to "speak up", faster battery drain, etc.. Granted that it did come with a charging case, but the charging case didnt hold that much charge either and drained itself pretty quickly if not used. So I went back to my UC V2 and waited till this one came out. Ive been using it without re-charging for two days and I'm at 50% - o I believe the 7 HR talktime claim.
Charging - the proprietary new charging connector by Plantronics may send a lot of loyal customers in the opposite direction. But I genuinely believe they did this out of consumrs best interest cos of the really tiny usb ports. Like I said, I need upto 2 headsets on some day and plugging it in for charge is one of the many things I do while multitasking and I really do feel relieved when the headset latches itself to the magnetized charger. I do agree with other reviewers that it is a concern as well cos you're now stuck with a single cable and cannot charge as easily with just any micr0-usb cable as before. You can love it or hate it - its purely a consumer thing.
Bluetooth 3.0 - they've advanced on the tech here; so it should instantly improve on call quality and battery consumption. The call quality has always been solid for me on all previous Voyagers - so I cant say its improved much - but I wouldn't doubt it either. Most mew smartphones come with Bluetooth 4.0 nowadays - that means lower energy consumption. If Plantronics were to integrate this and launch a flagship that looks like the Motorola Elite Sliver, sound like the Plantronics Legend, weigh as much as the Plantronics 975 - I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
But like I said - they prefer to get better; step by step.
Hope this helps someone out there.
The new Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Headset at first glance seems to be an evolved product, more than anything. It has the basic lines that were started with the original Voyager PRO headset, yet there's a certain refinement in it's newer, more streamlined design. Boom-style headsets are not for everyone, but out of those on the market, it appears that Plantronics has chosen wisely to evolve a popular and respected design and take it to a higher level. But first let me tackle both the good and bad from the perspective of an owner of a number of these over the years.
+ Voice commands: being able to say "answer" when your hands are busy is good
+ Mute button; excellent for when you want privacy
+ Improved ergonomics; actually more comfortable and functional that PRO-series
+ Nano-coating; moisture protection against the elements in inclement weather
+ Multi-point connection; allows pairing of two phones, answers from either
+ Greatly improved noise cancellation; a welcome improvement
+ Comfortable in extended use; can "wear" it for hours
+ Superb sound quality; triple-mike technology works
+ First-rate controls; power, volume and call control
+ Automatic voice prompts alert battery & mute status
+ Excellent and clearly written instructions
+ Single charge standby up to 11 days
+ Talk time; up to 7 hours, verified
- Rechargeable battery is non-replaceable
◆ First Impressions:
Having owned both the original Voyager PRO and the Voyager PRO+, I generally knew what to expect. But this new one is supposed to be an improved product, so I was interested to see if it was that much better. Upon arrival, I opened it immediately; the packaging was excellent, though care is suggested when removing it from the ingenious box. The instruction manual is written in a very clear and concise fashion, with easy-to-follow text and good illustrations. Followed the directions and charged the unit for the suggested 90 minutes using the new-style charger.
◆ Note on the New Charger:
The prior Voyager PRO-series had used a microUSB connector, which had been a strong plus, and this new proprietary magnetic snap-fit charger was a surprise. But this really isn't new technology, as my MacBook Pro uses a proprietary `MagSafe' power connector that they introduced in 2006. The concept is that if it's tugged or snagged, it will disconnect from the socket safely, without damaging the connector or the computer power socket. It just takes getting used to.
◆ In Use:
One might think that when looking at this Bluetooth headset it might be uncomfortable, especially if one wears glasses as I do, but that's not the case. Though the battery pack portion which rests behind the ear appears larger than many on the market, it is quite comfortable, as I had found from earlier experiences with the original Voyager PRO series, but this one is slightly smaller and more compact.
The pairing couldn't be simpler, and was a non-issue with my BlackBerry. Tried it later with an iPhone as well, and again there were no problems. Found that the standard medium ear tips were a perfect fit, and then tried each of the additional ones that came with the unit, settling back to the original. These are easily replaceable, and if you own any of the older ones, keep them. In my case the Medium Eartips for Voyager Pro were the perfect fit, but your findings may be different.
I wear my Bluetooth headsets on the left side, and found it simple to change in seconds by rotating the boom microphone. This boom mike has a dedicated button that you can use for voice commands... just touch it. This same button can also be used to control the mute on/off while you're on a call. Can't even explain how much of an improvement this is over the old PRO-series, where one had to press both of the volume control keys to control the mute. During a call, you can mute the microphone by tapping the mute button. You'll hear a "mute on" confirmation, and an alert repeats every 15 minutes to remind you that it's muted.
◆ Use in the Field:
Decided to give this Voyager Legend a good trial run in some congested areas where there would be plenty of noise, and where I could test not just the reception but the noise cancellation qualities as well, and what better to test it than a busy New York City street on a moderately windy early fall day. As I found from previous experiences with the original Voyager PRO, the people with whom I was talking had no problem hearing me, nor did I have any difficulty hearing them... except when an ambulance came by with its sirens going. The sound quality and noise suppression is better than my older Voyager PRO+, as I tried it in a loose "A-B" test, and was surprised.
I "wore" this headset for a little over eight hours straight, made a few calls, but most of this was in standby mode. Found it to be extremely comfortable, and for the most part wasn't even aware that it was there. Again, it's worth noting that it didn't interfere with wearing glasses at all, a strong plus for this user. As far as the range goes, the manual says that the operating distance is "Up to 33 feet." Personally I've found that clear reception with my BlackBerry Curve is more like 25 feet before it gets a little wonky, but it hasn't dropped any calls. For normal movement around a room or office, it's been fine. It's actually better in range than my older Voyager PRO+, so I have no complaints.
◆ Regular Use:
The Voyager Legend is an item that I use daily. It's been on my ear as I've been writing this, and it's good to be able to say "answer" when your hands are busy on the keyboard. It's far more comfortable and ergonomic than the photos might indicate, which is something that one can only find by actual extended use. Have worn mine for 12+ hours a day at a time, and it's been quite easy to adapt to over extended periods of time, with no discomfort whatsoever. I ride a mountain bike some distances over suburban streets and wooded trails on a fairly regular basis, and the first thing that callers notice is that the sound quality is excellent. Dealing with wind noise was OK with my older Voyager PRO+, but this new one is far better.
For heavy-duty users, the Plantronics Voyager Legend Charge Case or the Plantronics Voyager Legend Desktop Charge Stand might be worth considering. Tried the Charge Case locally for a brief time, and it seems decent, but have yet to get one.
Have subjected this new Plantronics Voyager Legend to more use than the average product that I might review here. Compared to my original Voyager PRO and later Voyager PRO+, it's easy to see the generational improvements that have been made with each one. You can still find these older one being sold here, but improvements and new convenience features make this one a true best of breed when compared to the older Voyager PRO series. Obviously I recommend it as an excellent 5-star product, and for me it's proof that product evolution can be a very good thing.
