plantronics voyager legend bluetooth headsetPlantronics have announced their new premium Bluetooth headset, the Voyager Legend.

The latest update to the Voyager range, the Legend has enhanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing) that optimize your voice and minimize noise caused by wind and other background noises using a combination of 3 separate microphones, dramatically improving sound quality.

The Voyager Legend proactively delivers voice alerts to keep you informed of battery level, connection status and announces caller name. The headset also takes voice commands such as “answer” or “ignore” to keep you in control of your technology.

Stuart Bradshaw, head of consumer marketing Europe and Africa at Plantronics said:

Whether you are a mobile professional, commuter, or someone who needs to be connected to friends, family or work, the Voyager Legend simply delivers amazing audio quality in the most demanding environments. From its unique Smart Sensor technology that relays information about call status to the voice commands, the Voyager Legend continues Plantronics legacy of exceptional communication technology and innovation.

Key specs:

  • Up to 7 hours talk time
  • Up to 11 days stand by time
  • Bluetooth® v3.0
  • Wideband audio
  • Audio prompts include audio caller ID
  • A2DP for audio streaming
  • Multipoint technology
  • Headset battery meter for iPhone and iPad

There is also a nifty Find My Headset App, unfortunately only available for Android, that allows you to find your headset if you lose it. The app allows you to “acoustically locate your headset by sending it a tone” which you can then to track down the missing headset. If the headset is out of range you can use inbuilt mapping history which gives you at least an indicator on a map where it last was.

The software also allows you to see the battery strength of your headset, although this requires Android 3 or greater.

The Voyager Legend will be available in October for £89.99 at Amazon.co.uk
