Plantronic's Voyager Pro: filters out noise and wind

The firm claimed that Voyager Pro’s call clarity secret lies in its superior AudioIQ digital signal processing algorithms, which filter out almost all external noise and wind to produce sumptuous sound quality.

But the two microphones that sit on the end of an adjustable boom hanging directly in front of your mouth also help, Plantronics said. Headsets with microphones hidden back by your ear have to work that much harder.

Plantronics also claimed that the headset’s 20-band frequency equaliser filters out all surrounding distortion to achieve a richer and more vibrant conversation quality.

And the headset should be comfy to wear. Plantronics said the gadget is “perfectly counterbalanced” to ensure good weight distribution around your lughole. The Voyager Pro’s ear tip is made of soft silicone, the firm added.

The boom features two microphones

The Voyager Pro features a voice prompt warning about low battery power, but with a talk time of up to six hours and standby life of five days – you shouldn’t need to worry too much.

Plantronics’ Voyager Pro is available now in the UK for £80 ($131/€94). ®
