  • Description+-

    A great option in hands-free calling, the Plantronics Explorer ™ 500 Bluetooth® Headset provides access to extremely clear calls and voice control of your smartphones, phablets and tablets.

    Designed for use with HD Voice-enabled phones and service, the Bluetooth headset uses GSMA-Certified HD Voice to deliver extremely clear, more natural sounding calls, while dual mics with noise-canceling plus Digital Signal Processing (DSP) help eliminate background noise for conversations with less distractions.

    Voice control lets you use verbal commands to wake the headset from DeepSleep® power-saving mode, or activate Siri, Cortana and Google Now smartphone assistants to get directions to the local airport or advice on a good restaurant.

    You can also receive important status notifications in your choice of three languages, so you'll know, for example when it's time to recharge the headset or re-establish a lost connection.

    Time for a break? The headset's integrated A2DP can work with your A2DP-enabled phone to stream music, a podcast or other content.

    And, with Multipoint Technology you can simultaneously connect two devices and receive calls from both phones without having to disconnect and reconnect.

    The headset also comes with a magnetic USB strap that does double duty. Connect it to the headset and then loop it around your bag or keychain to keep your headset within reach. When it's time to charge the headset, simply connect the USB strap to the headset and then to a USB power source.

    Get up to 7 hours of talk time* and over 250 hours of standby time* when the headset is fully charged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid all around ear bud I bought this as a gift for my brother. He has reported that it not only meets his initial needs for a bluetooth headset but also enjoys the extra features available thru this model such as doubling as a headset for listening to music.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just for us girls Lightweight, easy to use, as in not complicated at all in anyway, but oh so effective when it comes to call and music quality. Yes, I said music, you can stream music & it doesn't suck the life out of the battery. Yeah, the battery life is, nice, sometimes you don't have to charge for two days. Only down side, I lose them because they are so small & lightweight. Also, this is funny, I work at a mental health facility, when I'm walking outside the officers looking at the cameras see me and initially think I'm talking to myself, until I pass another camera and they see the device in my ear. I get a big laugh as a result.
