Review: Bluetooth Headset Plantronics Voyager Legend UC

Developed by Plantronics, the Voyager Legend UC is a Bluetooth headset aimed at those looking for convenience and versatility in the products it uses.Based on the Voyager Legend model, the device differentiates itself by allowing connection to both mobile devices and PC.

Because it is an accessory with a mono sound system, the product has as main people belonging to the corporate market looking for a practical and discreet communication solution. Thus, the product should not be considered a headset intended for the consumption of multimedia content, but rather an addition to communicators such as Skype and Avaya.

In this review, computerdo tested the B235 model, which connects to any Bluetooth device and can be used on machines running both Windows and Mac OS X systems .It is also possible to find on the market the variation BS35-M, which differs by having an official Microsoft certification and

What’s in the Box

When you come across the Voyager Legend UC box, it’s hard not to get the impression that we’re dealing with a large headset.This feeling goes quickly, and you just have to open the packaging to find that the space used by the manufacturer is actually used to accompany the various accessories that come with the device.

In addition to a protective case with space for the headset and the accompanying USB connector (which also serves as a recharging base), you also find a holder with USB connection for recharging the device.The consumer also finds several sizes of silicone ear protectors, a micro USB cable and three plug adapter options.

Design

Following the tradition of Bluetooth headsets with mono system, the Voyager Legend UC has a minimalist design and a small size.The product fits comfortably into the user’s left ear thanks to a slightly moveable handle and a rubberized finish – at the same time the device is firmly attached, it does not bother you at all.

On its back, the accessory concentrates the audio input volume controller and the button responsible for turning it on and off.In addition, there is an LED indicator that shows if the unit is running and a small meter related to the amount of battery available at the time.

At the base of the microphone, you find the button responsible for answering calls and pairing the Voyager Legend UC to various devices.Finally, a small button labeled “Voice” lets you mute the microphone and trigger the voice commands in the gadget.

The way headphone commands are presented makes it easy to get accustomed to its operation.Much of this is due to the low number of control knobs, whose functions can be accessed quickly by different pressing times – a process that may seem confusing at the moment, but soon proves intuitive after a certain time of use.

Performance

We tested the paired Voyager Legend UC both with a Windows 8.1 system computer and an Android smartphone (the national Xperia Z2 with version 4.4.2 of the operating system) and we were quite satisfied with the performance of the handset.Whether it’s to receive or make calls, the device proves to be a comfortable choice and has delivered a respectable audio quality.

For that, it was enough to install the software Plantronics Spokes, responsible for the management of connections made for multiple sources.The application also adds a battery indicator to the operating system’s notification area and indicates whether you’re using the device next to a mobile device or an instant messenger installed on your machine – like Skype , for example.

Although not the quality of a professional microphone, Voyager Legend UC has proven to be a great solution for both talking on the phone and participating in voice conversations.Especially indoors, the device performs very well, capturing the user’s voice without the need to increase the pitch of his speech.

The only complaint we have regarding the product is the fact that the design of your microphone is not very friendly to environments with a lot of wind.In such cases, even WindSmart technology proves unable to completely filter out external noises, which can result in poor quality connection.

Apart from this isolated situation, the Voyager Legend UC proved to be a very versatile device with excellent reception quality.The main quality of the device is undoubtedly the ability to work with several electronics simultaneously, which makes it very practical – when leaving the front of the computer, for example, you do not need to pair it again to use it in With your smartphone.

The battery of the device also proved a positive point, having resisted a few days of use without the need for a recharge.Although the 7 hours reported by the manufacturer seem little at first, they prove to be more than adequate for most work contexts – and the practicality of recharging support makes it easy to recharge the accessory in virtually any environment with An outlet or USB port available.

Worth it?

The Plantronics Voyager Legend UC is definitely a product made for a very specific audience, both for its features and price.Relatively difficult to find in Brazil, the product is sold for prices ranging from $ 450 to $ 700, a figure that proves a bit high for those who have a limited budget.

Should you decide to make the necessary investment, you will hardly be disappointed.As a product essentially focused on communication, the accessory does not disappoint at any time, proving itself at the same time comfortable to use and competent in performing its functions – and the possibility of pairing it simultaneously to several devices is a feature that deserves to be highlighted .

Even failing at times when used in windy environments, the Voyager Legend UC is hardly going to disappoint you.Professionals interested in a complete form of communication should give the device a try, though those who are looking for more content-rich options probably will not see many reasons to invest in the accessory.
