Wow! Amazing voice quality A+++
Posted by: KBHealthy from: on
I've been using the Plantronics Voyager Legends for a number of years and until now they were the most comfortable and had the best voice quality of any other blue tooth earpiece at any price.
This new unit the 5200 version has better sound quality, especially in windy conditions, that was the single weakness of the previous Voyager Legend product.
Even better, the Blue Tooth version has been upgraded from 3.0 to 4.1 and the range is even better than before.
They also added a micro-usb port, in addition to that magnetic charging connection. I never really liked that the magnetic connection was too easy to dis-connect.
This ear-piece has been improved in almost every way!
Again, Plantronics has set the bar for the best sounding Blue Tooth cell phone earpiece and interestingly, "Best Buy" was the 1st to get this in stock. In fact, amazon still doesn't have this newest model on their website!

Works Very Well for Truck Drivers
Posted by: TonyVapes from: on
I am in my work truck for 10-12 hours a day and plantronics hit this one out of the park. People I speak with cant tell I am at work. The battery life is very good and I am glad it is waterproof because I am constantly outside. Overall this is a must need for truck drivers that want a small bluetooth with the features of a large blue parrot headset.

The best just got BETTER!
Posted by: GeekGuru92 from: Tucson, AZ on
I've used the Voyager Pro HD, the Voyager Legend and now the Voager 5220. And each model keeps getting better!
The built-in speech is superior to the Voyager Legend. The battery life is good. The sound quality is great and the BIGGEST improvements are;
1. The wind/noise cancelling works way better than the previous Voyager Legend.
2. It has a microUSB connector! So even if you lose or misplace the proprietary cord, you can still recharge and use the headset!

I've been a long time user of Jawbone products so I was skeptical about trying a different brand. So far my experience has been wonderful. Voice quality is super clear and the range is beyond anything I've used before. The earpiece is comfortable and I hardly know it's there. I highly recommend this product.

This headset is awesome. I was talking on the phone in my car and blasted the music to test it and the person on the phone could barely hear a hint of it. I even had the windows open and nothing on the other side. I love the voice answer feature, keeps my hands free which makes total sense for a bluetooth headset.

Works great when it works
Posted by: mattsvr4 from: on
I've used Plantronics bluetooth devices for a while. Over the past year I've noticed more issues. Some days it works other days it disconnects and when I make calls it says its connected but my iphone end ups being the default speaker. I know it's not just my phone. Happens to my mother (I bought her one too) and it also happens to my wife. All Iphone. So i tested on my fathers S5. Same problem. It's either the device or the technology. Seems like bluetooth is very easy to interfere with. Only problem is I've never had issues with any other bluetooth devices except for plantronics.

Just a few improvements over the previous version
Posted by: AverageJoe from: Peoria IL on
I have previous version, Voyager Legend UC, which I really like and use on a daily basis for both an iPhone 6 & VoIP. This version is about the same with the original Voyager Legend, except for the following:
* Separate volume buttons (+/-) instead of a slider/toggle
* Micro USB port as well as Plantronic's proprietary port
* Opaque ear gels instead of clear (don't see any more earwax)
The red accents adds to the aesthetics. The swivel action is a bit stiffer than the original Voyager Legend.
Everything else seem to be great as the original if not better. I wouldn't get it if you already have the original Voyager Legend. I only got this because it was a bundle deal with a car charger and a free travel case charger for about $100 (plus tax) on Memorial Day weekend. Otherwise, the original version can be had for half the price ($60) online.
P.S. This version will not work with the original Voyager Legend's proprietary charging ports, e.g. Charger case or desktop charger etc.

Better noise cancellation than Voyager legend
Posted by: Milkman from: Texas on
Decided to pay the premium to be early adopter since my two voyager legends were starting to have reduced battery life. Also, I tend to wonder away from my phone and need the enhanced bluetooth range this model has. I can get a good 60 feet away now. It has the same comfort as the legend and battery life. Works with the same app on your phone. Noise cancellation has improved. Callers could barely hear airport announcements which were so loud hurting my other ear.
The volume buttons have moved to the top which takes a little getting used to. I like the fact it will now charge via micro USB or magnet. Mute button has changed sides but does not matter since you would use two fingers to mute.

Good, but not worth the upgrade from a Legend
Posted by: Blade from: on
Quite a few folks have stated this is better than the Legend, which is currently half the price. I'm baffled as to how. Maybe people never updated their Legend to put it into Wideband (HD-Audio) mode? I've left myself voicemail using the 5220 and the Legend both in quiet environments and in very loud environments, including wind. The results are the same. Like I can't tell which is which unless I look at the timestamp. The only gains are firmware updates using your phone and plantronics hub and USB charging. I don't think those two are worth twice the current price. Once the supply of Legends gets cleaned out and prices go back up, I'd say it is worth $10 more than the Legend for the USB connector.
Lastly, I'm very frustrated with Plantronics for making it just slightly different enough to not charge in the old Legend case. It fits in just fine but they angled the connector so it won't charge. Lame.
