First Look: Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth headset

1:12 /

If you want a quality Bluetooth headset that can be either mono or stereo, then the Plantronics Voyager 855 is an excellent choice.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> I'm Nichole Lee, Assistant Editor for CNET.com and this is the Plantronics Voyager 855. As you can see it's a very sleek and slim Bluetooth headset here; there's a multifunction button on the front, there's the volume controls on the side, there's also a tiny, tiny power button on the side as well; on the back you have ear loop and a very comfortable earpiece cover. It fits very nicely in your ear. One of the special things about the Voyager 855 is that there's a sliding boom mic here so you can just slide it out to activate it, slide it back in to turn it off. Another fantastic thing about this Bluetooth headset is that it's not just a mono Bluetooth headset; it's also a stereo Bluetooth headset. What that means is you can detach the ear loop here and attach this thing which is attached to a secondary ear bud. You can listen to music on this thing and answer calls. Audio quality was fantastic, performance was great. Overall we think this is definitely one of the best Bluetooth headsets we've seen. My name is Nichole Lee; this has been the Plantronics Voyager 855. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ] ^M00:01:11
