#TechTuesday: Plantronics Legend Bluetooth Headset

Until a few years ago, I was the definition of Goldilocks and the three bears (minus the golden locks of course) when it came to Bluetooth headsets.  Every headset I tried was either too uncomfortable, sounded too much like I was in a tunnel, or the battery wouldn’t last long enough.  I stumbled upon the Plantronics Voyager Legend a few years ago when I was looking for a headset to pair multiple devices at once.

I can’t say enough good things about this headset.  I put it on every morning, and by the end of the day, I forget I’m still wearing it until it rings in my ear.  I’ve had many instances where I forget to take it off and wear it to dinner or a social gathering where people surely think I’m some sort of cyborg (if they didn’t already).  The headset seamlessly pairs with my iPad Mini (for my office softphone and skype) and my BlackBerry Passport.  I’ve also paired it with computers and consoles and it works great.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to come up with a downside to this headset and I can’t come up with any.  I had about 10 different headsets (costing more and less than the Legend) before I found this one and I can honestly say I’ve not looked at another headset since – I actually bought a spare Legend in case mine dies!

Some of the features I love…

  • Audio QualityPeople won’t know you’re using a headset!
  • Great battery life! – I charge my headset once a week, twice if I’m crazy busy
  • Pairs with multiple devices at the same time! – No more connecting and disconnecting
  • Comfortable! – I forget I’m wearing it
  • Caller ID – The headset will announce the caller ID (even the name!) in your ear
  • Voice Control for answering calls – No button press needed, you simply have to say Answer or Ignore
