Voyager 5200 Bluetooth earpiece offers good sound and great value

The Poly (Plantronics & Polycom) Voyager 5200 Bluetooth earpiece has numerous features that ought to appeal to any truck driver, not the least of which is solid value for the money.

One of the most impressive of the 5200's features is a red two-in-one button that activates Siri, Google Now, or Cortana. It’ll also whisper alerts to update you on talk time, and announce the names of incoming callers so you can simply say “Answer” or “Ignore” to calls without lifting a finger.

The Voyager 5200 delivers seven hours of continuous talk time and nine days of standby.

It also has WindSmart noise-canceling technology on the Voyager 5200’s microphones. It effectively eliminates background noise in your cab and on the highway.

The Voyager 5200 also automatically senses if it’s being worn and it directs call audio to where you expect to hear it. The lightweight mono earpiece allows you to wear it for your entire driving day in comfort.

The Plantronics Hub mobile app allows you to locate your lost headset, change languages, wirelessly update firmware, or personalize settings and alerts. The Plantronics Hub desktop software lets you view the headset’s battery meter, change languages, update firmware, enable softphone call control, or personalize settings and alerts.
