Bottom Line

The Plantronics Explorer offers solid performance at a decent price, but it may be too soft for noisier environments, and the mic may not be as great for the person on the other end.

The Plantronics Voyager 50 Bluetooth headset has received positive reviews for its lightweight construction, its clean and balanced audio, its great price, its solid battery life and its handy mute function. Users also liked its Bluetooth range and its overall reliable Bluetooth connection. However, some found that it was not as user friendly as they would have liked. Others also pointed to the fact that the speaker is not loud enough. The last noticeable issue some users had is that the mic doesn’t seem to be too clear for some, with people on the other end unable to hear the caller clearly.  The Plantronics Explorer 50 offers great audio and is fairly lightweight, but individuals using them in noisy places may struggle to hear anything.
