Voyager 520 Bluetooth Headset
Bluetooth headsets have become very popular in Los Angeles thanks to the new hand-free law that took affect July 1, 2008. While the new law had good intentions, it falls short of fixing the real problem with drivers being distracted when having conversations while driving. Regardless, many law-abiding citizens are searching for the right bluetooth headset to use in the car. While each user may have different criteria on what makes a good headset, most would agree that ease of operation is important. Plantronics has introduced the new Voyager 520, which is designed to deliver high quality audio with a noise-canceling microphone. The innovative wind screen design minimizes wind noise making audio clearer for others to hear. Plantronics had great success with the previous model (the 510) and some still consider it one of the best bluetooth headsets out there. With that said, we will take a look at the new 520 design.
Pressing and holding the Call button turns the headset on or off. When the battery level is very low, the headset will double flash in red every 10 seconds along with an audible double high tone on the headset. The Call button can also be moved up or down to adjust the volume level setting. A solid red for 4 seconds with descending audio tones indicates the unit has turned off.
Our review unit came with a vehicle power charger along with a vent clip cradle. This keeps the headset in an easy to find location while being charged in the vehicle.
