Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset: Looks Good!
The Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset is an adjustable head piece that is designed to receive calls from a mobile device such as an iPhone or Android. The headset uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with the mobile wirelessly and is designed for those that want to talk on the phone whilst they are driving. The headset can also be used outdoors and on the move. In this article we will take a look at the features of this headset and outline the good points and the bad points of the unit.
It is very robust and although the strap on part of the device sits comfortably, it cannot be removed in anyway. The headset sits well on the user and will not fall off by accident. The hook design is well suited for prolonged use and there has obviously been close attention paid to this part of the design. The headset works with all the major mobile devices. Set-up is easy and the headset should automatically detect the device it is working with. On an iPhone, the headsets battery life icon will appear next to the iPhones and the amount of battery power left in the device will also be shown as an alert. The battery life is also extremely long and will last for an entire day before it needs to be charged again.
The Headset has a selection of negative aspects that appear when the user is active on the device in areas where noise levels are higher than usual. The device does not have good noise cancellation and the volume control on the headset is limited. The device also comes with A2DP technology that allows users to stream sound and music media from their mobile device into the headset. However, this does not sound great and there is very little bass when playing music through the headset.
This device is well designed and comes with an interesting selection of features. Users can connect the headset to several mobiles at once for conference style calls. There is also a service that provides voice mails and news updates directly to the headset and is available for a small monthly fee. The noise cancellation is an issue with this particular headset and will effect those that wish to use their device outdoors. However the sturdy design and additional features of Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset should attract consumers that are looking for a good quality headset device.
