While I’m typing these lines the upcoming Wing Commander/Freelancer/Privateer/Starlancer type Squadron 42/Star Citizen crowd-funded game has now officially breached the $4.500.000 line and is heading towards $5.000.000 at full speed so i really think that congratulations are in order for Chris Roberts, his crew and of course each and every single person out there who supported this game from even before the launch date (and of course everyone after that), whether it is just by spreading the word or by pledging either in the RS page or on KS (my thanks go to all regardless). This review however does not revolve around games or anything related with games since for the past month or so quite a few people have asked for a review of the latest Bluetooth wireless headset by Plantronics to hit the market called the Voyager Legend and of course we obliged.
From the day two airline pilots working in a garage set out to invent a new kind of aviation headset until today, we have considered breakthroughs in audio technology as our daily business. We pioneered the lightweight headset, the mobile headset, noise-canceling technology and the personal speakerphone, always driven by a single obsession: remove the barriers to simply smarter communications. The result? Our products are used by everyone from pilots, astronauts, and 911 emergency workers to 100% of the Fortune 100. From friends conversing across the globe, to mobile professionals doing business on the road, to contact centers and executive offices, Plantronics is the choice for everyone united by digital technology and the human need to communicate. Plantronics is a publicly held company (NYSE: PLT) headquartered in Santa Cruz, California with offices in 20 countries, including major facilities in China, England, Mexico, and the Netherlands. Our products are sold and supported through a worldwide network of Plantronics partners, including resellers, systems integrators, retailers and mobile carriers. And a half a century later, we are striving every day to deliver simply smarter communications with innovative design and technology.
The Voyager Legend is the last addition to the Voyager line of wireless headsets by Plantronics which started off with the release of the original Voyager quite a few years back and followed by the Voyager Pro, Voyager Pro+ and the Voyager Pro HD. So just like its predecessors the Voyager Legend was not designed to compete with the smallest Bluetooth wireless headsets in the market but instead it was given a medium size which in turn offers a very good battery life, excellent stability (even while exercising) and superior audio quality (for both ends). However with the previous Voyager Pro HD being one of the best wireless headsets we've ever tried it seems that the Voyager Legend has its job cut out for it and so for the past 12 days we've been using it on a daily basis to see just how good it is and how better (or worse) it is compared to its predecessor the quite excellent Voyager Pro HD.
