The Voyager Legend is the next generation of Plantronics’ award-winning Voyager headset line and has three precisely tuned microphones and enhanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing) that optimize your voice and minimize noise caused by wind, movement, and background sounds. Industry-first Smart Sensor technology intuitively directs calls to your phone or headset and allows you to automatically answer by placing the headset on your ear. The Voyager Legend proactively delivers voice alerts to keep you informed of battery level, connection status and announces caller name. The headset also takes voice commands such as “answer” or “ignore” to keep you in control of your technology.

Usability advances provide convenience and control with dedicated buttons for call answer/end, voice commands, power and mute. Optional accessories, including a battery-powered carrying case for charging on-the-go and a desktop charging stand for when you touch down, ensure your headset is ready for calls.

The Voyager Legend line will include a version designed for Unified Communications (UC) with accessories that make it simple to make and receive calls from your mobile phone or PC. It also incorporates contextual intelligence, taking user awareness to the next level by leveraging user proximity to their PC, updating mobile call state and much more.
