Even though I already have a built in microphone in my laptop and all I would really require is headphones, I find that if I actually have an external microphone then I can concentrate the sound into a specific area rather than just shouting into the air.
The Plantronics Voyager Pro is a black and silver in colour, it looks very smart and attractive, seeing this for the first time instantly tickled my fancy and wanted to use it for when I skype, it can also take many knocks and scrapes but I would advise that you try to keep them down to a minimum because they could (im not saying they will) get damaged and effect the sound or vocal quality.
The Plantronics Voyager Pro is a great Noise canceling bluetooth head set provided with not one, but two noise canceling microphones supplied by AudioIQ technology, with a 20-band equalizer also providing three layers of WindSmart technology letting your voice be heard and you are able to hear there voice regardless of all the noise around you.
The headset is designed for long periods of use being made with flexible rubber that sits very well on the ear without much fussing around to get it into a comfortable position; they can be placed on either ear, it's so light weight its practically weightless, but it is a little larger than what you would expect it to be but personally for me it is fine and I mainly use it for webcaming anyway.
There are a few more functions, whatever you are pairing up with this headset whether it be skype or your mobile it is very quick and easy with no hassle at all, if you do find there is a problem it is probably the fact that you haven't activated the Bluetooth on the receiving device (im constantly doing that) there are automatic voice prompts, battery alerts and you also get a mute status. You will find the volume controls on the side of the headset identified as two buttons.
In the packaging you get three methods of charging your Bluetooth headset:
AC Power Adapter
USB Cable (computer charge)
When using the AC Power adapter it doesn't take long for the unit to charge and when the headset is fully charged the charger light will turn off signaling the charge complete
So basically there is no excuse for your headset to ever be drained of battery.
With one complete charge of this Bluetooth headset you get about 5 days of standby time and six hours of talk time, which works out to be around 120 hours.
Now for the all important sound, which I have to say is amazing, and the noise cancelation works really well, not all the noise is cancelled out but it is the best I have ever experienced, using this with my phone I get a crystal clear quality which is exactly what it advertises.
There is no Bluetooth headset that can completely cancel out noise, but this comes pretty close.

This headset is a great purchase whether it's for using with your webcam or using with your mobile phone, I never purchased them at this price but I think I could justify buying them at this price, the quality of this entire device is unique, great quality, great fit, its just great.
Claiming to be "one of the most advanced noise cancelling Bluetooth headsets available" the Plantronics Voyager PRO has great expectations to fill. On paper things look very promising as features included a triple layer shield comprising of a stainless steel screen, an electronic filter, and sound absorbing fabrics the purpose of all is to reduce background noise and wind to the minimum possible level. The headset is designed for prolonged wearing and is constructed of flexible rubber that feels "virtually weightless." It is designed and developed also to be both easy to setup and pair with devices, and for everyday use. However as I said that's on paper, so does this Bluetooth head set deliver on what it promises and live up to expectations?
First of all the Voyager PRO is a bit on the large side and it will come down to personal preferences whether or not this turns out to be an advantage or disadvantage. Personally I feel that it's a good size as it's going to remain securely in place and it's not something you're going to have to be constantly adjusting. At the same time you're less likely to lose it should you be the kind of person that tends to lose things. Either way the headset is perfectly comfortable to wear for prolonged periods of time, after a few minutes I genuinely forget that I was wearing it as it's very un-obstructive. However at the same time due to its physical size, I suspect that it would more than likely pose a problem if you wear glasses.
I personally feel that the device is very stylish in design making it visually appealing and a pleasure to show off. Again it's down to personal preference and some may find the shape, size, and or colour off putting. The build quality is excellent while also being light weight, the Voyager Pro strikes me as something that's durable enough to withstand repetitive use by even the heaviest handed person and is backed up by a two year warranty.
Setting up the device was quick, easy, and problem free on my Sony Ericsson mobile phone, and I was also able to connect to my laptop (after I had worked out how to switch my blue-tooth on.) Actually using the headset to make and receive calls was straightforward requiring only the tapping of a button on the side and volume can be controlled to two small but easy to press buttons on the top of the device.
Charging the headset can be done using the enclosed AC power adaptor, USB cable or car adaptor meaning it can practically be recharged anywhere at anytime. Thankfully while the battery life of the adaptor is long, charging doesn't actually take that long and an LED will switch off when the battery is full.
Naturally the most important factor when buying a Bluetooth head set is the sound quality. Needless to say the Voyager Pro provided truly excellent sound, and this alone is enough to recommend the headset to you. Both transmitting and reception of sound is crystal clear and distortion free, and it also succeeds in reducing a lot of unwanted background noise such as traffic.
If you're looking for a problem free Bluetooth headset that does exactly what it says on the tin, then look no further as I can find no real reason not to recommend this to you.
