    BEST YET!

    I have always been frustrated by blue tooth headsets that claim to work seamlessly with your phone. Now, I have finally found a headset that truly delivers on this promise!! The Plantronics Explorer 505 is that headset! Once you turn it on, it is intelligent. It enters pairing mode automatically, and works with Apples SIRI, uses verbal cues to answer or decline calls and much more. The sweetest feature is its ability to connect to two different bluetooth appliances! I connect to my phone, and to my Ipad...it knows which one it's using, or whether both are being used and divides it's attention accordingly. It also comes with a "holder, charger" that not only charges the headset via USB, but also provides a storage solution for you headset! At $59 it is one of the best deals out there, and it's available now at Best Buy!!! It is brand-new to the Plantronics line, and this is the same company that makes Headsets for Air Traffic Controllers in the FAA! A dependable, excellent, company trusted by many!

    Solid Bluetooth for both iPhone and android

    I have 2 phones (iPhone and android) I connect this to and the integration has been far better that the previous Bluetooth I purchased. I've found that most Bluetooth typically only fully support one platform or the other but this one does well when connected to both at the same time. Would recommend for the $$

    Solid Headset

    I obtained this headset mostly to be able to answer the phone on long drives. The connection between the headset and my phone is solid, and very quick to connect when the device turns on. Audio quality is clear going both ways. My car is a little noisy but I can generally hear people okay. The clip is effective at holding the device in place and you can put it on with one hand without too much trouble. It can make your ear a little sore if you have it in for long periods, but nothing to worry about unless you plan on being on the phone for a few hours at a time (and really, you could say the same for most headsets at that point). Battery life is good and it plugs into a USB port to charge (with an included cable that doubles as a belt clip kind of thing), so it should work with computers and a lot of phone chargers, too. The charging cable does not have data contacts, so it will not prompt your computer to complain about needing drivers or some such. It does look rather strange as a result, but I assure you that it works well. Overall, this is a good headset and I would recommend it if you have a need of making hands-free calls, and your phone supports Bluetooth.

    Good overall Bluetooth

    I purchased this headset to use for work. I'm a delivery driver for a company and use it everyday. The noise cancelation on it is great and has a clear quality sound. Very easy to use and is pretty comfortable on my ear for wearing it at least 8 hours a day. It's very light weight and small, which doesn't get in the way. The battery life is really good too and I use it quite a bit and only have to charge it 2 or 3 times a week. My only complaint about it is that I wish the volume on it went a little bit louder because my work truck is a little loud so it can be hard to hear on it sometimes. But as far as the quality of my voice to other people; they say it is very clear even with my window rolled down on the highway and the noise from the truck. Great overall product for the price!!

    The clarity is good and i can hear loud enough. The people on the other end can hear clearly. It's simple to operate!

    Of all the Bluetooth earpieces I have tried this is the first one that does not leave my ear aching after wearing it all day which I like. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the volume isn't quite loud enough for my taste.
