The Good The Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus has a very comfortable fit, with a dedicated power switch, a volume rocker, and a swiveling boom mic. It has multipoint, A2DP streaming, voice alerts, a battery meter when paired with an iPhone, and access to Plantronics Vocalyst, an automated phone service that lets you send e-mail, texts, and even tweets with just your voice. Audio quality and wind noise reduction are very good.

The Bad The Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus is quite bulky, and might not fit comfortably for those who wear glasses. The Vocalyst service is only free for the first year, plus you have to upgrade to the Pro level to get the speech-to-text feature.

The Bottom Line The Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus may not be the most stylish headset, but its features and performance more than make up for it.

Editors' Top Picks

The Plantronics Voyager line of headsets is legend in the Bluetooth headset world. The old-school Voyager 510 has many rabid fans and last year's Voyager Pro has earned its fair share of recognition as well. This might come as a surprise for some people--after all, these headsets are quite bulky compared with their more modern counterparts--but the Voyager's sound quality and comfort are prized above its appearance.

This year, Plantronics has released an improvement upon last year's model: the Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus. Its design is largely unchanged, but it has a lot more features. Not only does it now have A2DP streaming, it also has voice alerts, a battery meter for the iPhone (with support for more smartphones in the future), increased wind noise reduction, and support for Plantronics' new Vocalyst phone service. For $99.99, we think the Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus is definitely worth the upgrade.
