    Smartest headset on the market

    • Written by from Bucharest

    It does exactly what it says... The sound is great, it fits perfect and you will probably forget it's on your ear. All the features are great and useful, like call announce, voice commands, movement sensors. The only bad thing is the charger - if you use it extensively, you will have to carry an adapter or another cable with you.

    Works great, including voice command by button press

    • Written by from Pflugerville

    I don't know what 'Mark M' is talking about. The user's manual states clearly you can voice dial using the phone's own voice feature by pressing the Call button, which is the button at the back of the microphone boom, for two seconds. That brings up voice dial via the iPhone's 'voice control' function. Works perfectly on my iPhone 4. The headset performs exactly as I need it to. The sensor feature is a nice bonus. You can keep the headset connected to the phone but leave it on your desk when you don't need it. When you get a call, put the headset on your ear and the audio is transferred from the handset to the headset. Beats what I used to have to do which was tell a caller to hang on while I put on and connect my headset. I recommend not bothering with the Vocalyst feature.

    Plantronics keep getting better,

    • Written by from Basingstoke

    I use the telephone so much in work that a good headset is a major boon. Over the last few years I have tried several of the Plantronics headsets including Bluetooth, DECT, office and mobile designs. All have proved extremely ergonomic and comfortable and the Legend builds on this by bringing together and adding various small features from the rest of their range that add up to a lot:

    * The ability to pair two phones (also present in other models such as the Pro UC) means that I can use one unit to take and make calls on office phone and my mobile.

    * Background noise cancellation is even better, partly thanks to an extra microphone which helps to pick up and cancel out background sound.

    * The introduction of an on/off switch (as opposed to a button that needed to be held down) makes it faster and easier to switch on and off - surprisingly useful.

    * If the phone rings, putting the earpiece on will direct the call to the earpiece and calls can be answered by saying 'answer'.

    * The unit is slimmer and slightly lighter than the Pro UC, which was itself a very easy on the ear unit.

    It is hard to knock any of the Plantronics models but the Legend manages to take the design forward to the extent that the sheer feel of the unit is even more harmonious. Voice recognition for pulling up names from address books is good, battery life is improved and the earpiece is incredibly comfortable on the ear. I have tried so many units that either fall off the ear or constantly remind of their presence but I had to touch my ear to check that the Legend was still there.

    There are other features such as 'Vocalist' that I will probably never get into and the key experience for me is that I use it without being aware of it. It performs its task unobtrusively and efficiently.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from CHESTER

    I have bought many bluetooth headsets over the years and have found this one to be the very best. It syncs quickly, has very long standby and talk time and is a brilliant way to listen to audiobooks and podcasts without the hassle of cables. As I mentioned before, I have used many bluetooth headsets, all in the £50+ range from well known manufacturers, this is by far the best one I have used. It charges quickly, sounds great and is very comfortable. Talk/listening time is as good as that stated by Plantronics.

    Wow, this is what I have been waiting for

    • Written by from Cranbury

    Works best with the Mac with the Plantronics Spokes application and the BC-300 USB adapter. Don't pair it with the Mac, pair it with the BC-300.

    I wish Apple sold the UC model, it comes in bundle with everything that you need.

    Integration with Skype works really well. Allows you to have separate sound output for music and use the headset for calls only. iTunes will mute when making or taking calls.

    Headset pairs with computer and cell phone(I think it may even do 2 cell phones in addition to the computer). Just noticed that my iTunes will mute when I receive a call on the cell phone as well.

    Not sure why some have rated it too low. I am using it for more than a year and no complaints at all. The best feature I like is it connects to 2 phones simultaneously and let you receive calls from any. I have my personal cell phone and have to carry office blackberry and it works out great.

    One day it got "dead". There was no response at all. I called Plantronics help line and they suggested to update the unit by connecting to computer and download the latest software version. Did that and it became alive. Still working great.

    At last - as perfect a headset as you can get!

    • Written by from Tamborine Mountain

    You name it - I've tried it - Bose, Jawbone, BlueAnt, Jabra Wave, Sennheizer, PLT Marquee - and finally I have a headset I think will be a keeper. My main issues have been my sensitive ears - the Marquee and the Jawbone were too fat for ear-comfort. The Bose had no earloop and kept falling out when I walked. The Jabra was great but too delicate - the bendy bit broke.
    I was holding out for headsets with micro-USB and really tried the Legend as a last resort, knowing it had a magnetic clip. This is actually a bonus - it was always fiddly fitting the micro-USB plug in all the others. It does mean I'll need to purchase another magnetic clip for the car, but cheap enough to do so.
    Sound quality is great, love the auto address-book name announce, love the range, love the comfort, love the "Answer' voice command. Talk-time is great. Time will tell, but for now, I'm a huge fan - it IS a legend!

    Absolutely the best BT headset out there

    • Written by from Hyrynsalmi

    I wear it all day, and I mean all day. I wake up, take a shower, put it on and the only time I take it off is when I go to bed at night. Every. Day. It's that comfortable.

    It works on my iPhone 4s and iPad 3 and Mac Pro. I can use it simultaneously on any 2 of the 3 devices. Siri works great. I can even use Dialogue (app) on Mac to make phone calls on iPhone and use the headset. OS X Mavericks dictate works great with the headset. I can't find any fault.

    I listen to audiobooks, radio, watch movies. Sound quality is adequate, better than I expected. Definitely not Hi-fi but it's not meant to be.
