Plantronics Savor M1100 and Voyager PRO+ Reviews

Plantronics M100 Bluetooth Headset Review

Plantronics M100 Bluetooth Headset Review

Plantronics is a Bluetooth headset brand we're very familiar with here at SlashGear, having tested the company's past few generations of models. Of course, that developing heritage can be both a blessing and a curse: the bar is set high, and any new headset needs to not only offer performance to match the price-tag but justify its existence over its predecessors. Next up is the Plantronics M100, a compact dual-microphone headset with a relatively compact $79.99 MRSP. Can its iPhone integration and other functionality keep it distinct not only from rivals but previous models? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Plantronics Explorer 395 Review

Plantronics Explorer 395 Review

We've been impressed with Plantronics last few Bluetooth headsets, finding the company's DSP offers a decent balance of background noise reduction while not making callers sound hopelessly artificial. What happens when Plantronics tries to do DSP on a budget, however? The new Plantronics Explorer 395 has a bargain $49.95 MRSP and, the company reckon, is ideal for first-time Bluetooth headset users. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bone Conducting Bluetooth Headset review

The Bluetooth headset market has split in recent years, with the budget end of the market being served by low-cost, simple devices for $50 or under, and the high-end packing complex noise-reduction and DSP for $100 upward.  Into that fray steps Motorola, whose Endeavor HX1 headset packs military-type bone conduction in order - they claim - to completely vanquish background noise.  After the cut, check out the full SlashGear review and why we reckon the HX1 isn't quite ready for the urban battlefield.

Plantronics Discovery 975 Review

You could talk for ages about where the Plantronics Discovery 975 fits into the company's range, but the simplest explanation is that the Voyager PRO and Discovery 925 had a baby and it's the new prodigal son.

Plantronics .Audio 995 wireless headset

Plantronics .Audio 995 wireless headset

Plantronics have announced their latest wireless headset, the Plantronics .Audio 995.  Rather than use a standardized wireless technology such as Bluetooth, Plantronics have plumped for their own 2.4GHz system which requires a USB dongle.

The range is similar to that offered by Bluetooth, at around 40 feet, and the Plantronics system also includes control of volume, play and track skips in iTunes and Windows Media Player from buttons on the headset itself.  The microphone features noise-canceling technology and automatically mutes when raised into the upright position.
