CNET First Look
Hands-on with the Plantronics Voyager Edge bluetooth headsetThe latest headset from Plantronics is lightweight, comfortable, and packed full of new features.
I'm Dan Graziano, and I'm here with the Voyager Edge Bluetooth headset from Plantronics. This is an update to the company's older discovery, 975 headset. As you can see, it has a distinctive diamond shape. It's very lightweight coming at only 9 grams, which makes it very comfortable to wear. It can be paired with a Bluetooth or NFC with your smartphone or tablet, while three noise-canceling microphones help improve sound quality. It's also water-resistant, supports multiple languages, and can even detect when you put it on and take it off. Battery life is red at up to 6 hours of talk time or up to 7 days while on standby. Charging is done through a micro USB port and it takes about 90 minutes to go from zero to 100 percent. Inside the box, you get a car charger, a micro USB cord, and a small charging case that holds additional 10 hours of battery life giving you up to 16 hours of talk time. There's also a clip-on ear link and two additional silicone eartips to ensure that the headset will fit any-sized ear. The Voyager Edge will be available in April in black, white, or gray and have a starting price of $129. I'm Dan Graziano for CNET, and that was the first look at the brand new Voyager Edge Bluetooth headset.
