The best Bluetooth headset
The Wirecutter product review website have been long-term testing their picks and they are confident they are still the best options for people who spend time making and taking phone calls.
After 80-plus hours of researching headsets and testing more than 18 models over the past few years (including testing three new models over 20 hours for the latest update), The Wirecutter have determined that the Plantronics Voyager 5200 is the best mono Bluetooth headset for making and taking calls, whether you’re in a quiet office or a noisy coffee shop. The Voyager 5200 offers the most comfortable and secure fit and the best dedicated call-management controls of the headsets we tested. It also has better mic quality than stock earbuds or most Bluetooth earbuds, plus battery life that can last most of a workday.
Plantronics Voyager 5200
The Voyager 5200 is comfortable enough to wear all day, has excellent incoming and outgoing sound quality, and offers decent battery life.
In their tests, the Plantronics Voyager 5200 provided the most consistently clear incoming and outgoing audio in a variety of settings. Its earhook design sometimes requires two hands to put on, but it’s easily adjustable and comfortable enough to wear all day; its earpiece also provides a secure seal for optimal sound quality, and its battery gives around 5 hours, 40 minutes of talk time.
The Voyager 5200 also has all of the software features that have made Plantronics headsets some of our favourites throughout the years, such as the capability to accept and reject calls with your voice.
