Get Handsfree Calling for Under $100 with the Plantronics Voyager 3200 Series Headset

Over the years, I have been impressed by the process Plantronics brings to product development. On a fairly regular basis, they release something brand new. But on an even more frequent basis, they take what exists and simply make it better. That’s the case with the new Voyager 3200 Series.

 

 

The Plantronics Voyager 3200 Series is a premium Bluetooth headset at a reasonable price. Available in diamond black, buff white and carbon gray, the headset is under $100. The Voyager 3200 Series maintains one of Plantronics’ iconic designs. It looks sleek yet packs 3-mic noise-cancelling technology and up to 6 hours of talk-time.

With the optional charging case.

It is also “smart.” For example, it offers what the company refers to as “dynamic mute alert sensors.” This feature delivers an alert if the headset it muted and you try to begin speaking. Other sensors answer or transfer calls when you put on the headset. And, if you are already wearing the headset and a call comes in, you can say “answer” to take the call or “ignore” to send the call to voicemail.

And there’s more. The Plantronics Voyager 3200 Series offers voice alerts that announce the name of callers, inform you of the connection status and even let you know how much talk time is left before the headset needs to be recharged.

And there is even more. While most Bluetooth headsets have a range of just 10 meters (33 feet), this headset has a range of up to 98 feet (30 meters).that means your phone can be in the other room, and you can still continue your conversation.

Finally, a Bluetooth headset is only as good as the quality of the audio it delivers. That, of course, is where Plantronics excels. And, thanks to Plantronics SoundGuard® technology, the Voyager 3200 Series protects your hearing against unexpected loud sounds.

Features include:

  • Dynamic mute alert senses and immediately alerts you when you begin to speak while muted
  • Smart sensors answer or transfer calls by putting on the headset. When wearing the headset, simply say “answer” or “ignore” to manage incoming calls (full smart sensor capabilities can be enabled via the Plantronics Hub for mobile or desktop use)
  • Voice alerts announce caller names, connection status and talk time level
  • Up to 98 feet/30 meters of wireless range from supported Class 1 Bluetooth devices
  • Easy NFC pairing with NFC?enabled devices
  • Activate Siri, Google Now or Cortana with the simple touch of a button
  • Wideband?ready for high-quality PC telephony and HD Voice with compatible devices
  • Plantronics SoundGuard® technology provides protection against unexpected loud sounds to prevent hearing damage

All this and the Voyager 3200 Series not only looks great but it is also nicely priced at just $99.99. Check them out here: Plantronics Headsets and Accessories.
