Though it was one of the best-sounding headsets I’d ever used, the Plantronics Voyager 510 had one downside: its clunky design. The updated 520 model delivers a slick new look. In addition, noise-canceling circuitry and a built-in screen that eliminates wind noise work to ensure stellar sound quality.
Small and stylish, the 520 is comfortable to wear and features an ingenious soft-rubber ear loop that’s clear after the point where it reaches the ear, so it’s not at all unsightly.
The Voyager 520 gets plenty loud. In testing, the 520’s sound quality was outstanding, too. I drove around Manhattan and Queens with the car window down on a breezy day: Not only was I able to make calls successfully (with all the construction, engine noise, and car-horn din in the background), but callers on the other end were surprised when I told them I was using a Bluetooth headset.
At $99.95, the Voyager 520 costs about $30 less than the Aliph Jawbone, our previous Editors’ Choice Bluetooth headset. The Voyager 520 is also a bit smaller. Although it lacks the Jawbone’s sophisticated noise canceling, the 520 still has excellent noise rejection. On top of that, it offers superb sound and impressive battery life, making it a better choice.Plantronics Voyager 520 Short ReviewPrice range: $99.95Check This Out:Anmo Dino-Lite AM313: Mini Digital MicroscopeCreative Prodikeys DM ValueSwiss Travel Products World USB Charger (MPC-N1)
