Plantronics Voyager PRO – Out of the Box
Out of the box, Plantronics outfits the Voyager PRO with all the bare essentials: an AC power charger, a variety of Eartips and Eartip covers. Plantronics chose to use a “USB-Micro” connector for charging their unit. While still not as popular as the ever present USB-Mini, we are starting to see more devices outfitted with the USB-Micro form factor mainly because devices are getting smaller and smaller – especially in the mobile communication market.
Plantronics gives the Voyager PRO user three sizes (S, M, L) of eartips for the best possible fit. We were happy with the ‘mediums’ that were stock out of the box, but if it’s not the best fit, you can combine it with one of the eartip covers to make it a more snug fit. Having so many combinations for the headset is definitely an advantage that many manufacturers ignore.
Examining the body of the Voyager PRO, we find the Volume Up and Volume Down Buttons on the top of the headset. When you press these at the same time, you will initiate the Mute function for the headset. Lower down the spine of the headset, you have the Power Button and on the arm of the unit, a Multi-Function Call Control Button. The Call Control Button handles most of the user duties including call answering, rejection, transferring, redial, and voice control activation.
Even though it doesn’t look like it, right above the power button is the two-color LED status indicator. This LED will either glow or flash blue or red depending on the status of the headset. Expect to use it as a visual cue when checking power/standby status, pairing the headset, checking the battery level, or checking for missed calls. The indicator even blinks when you adjust the volume.
The layout and design of the Voyager PRO are on par with the older Voyager 510, but with a update. Some people still might feel like a bit of an alien walking around with this headset sitting on their ear, but if you can get past that, the headset is quite comfortable. Plantronics updated the look to be a bit more modern with thin lines on the stem and a funky looking (and supposedly functional) microphone mesh which adds to the contemporary look.
