The Plantronics Voyager 520 is an in-ear Bluetooth headset that has active noise-cancellation features and a wind screen to help reduce unwanted background and wind noise. It is an updated version of the bestselling Voyager 510 headset. The Voyager 520 has a classier look with its simple, teardrop design as compared to the original Jabra-inspired 510 headset, which looks more like a big hearing aid.

The Voyager 520 has a redesigned ear tip and loop for more comfort. The ear hook is made of flexible silicone material which can rotate to fit either ear. You can wear the headset for hours and not feel any discomfort in your ear canal. It is also smaller and not bigger in size than the average lipstick. The sexy and stylish 520 measures at 2.5" x .7" x .5" and weighs only half an ounce. It has a sleek piano black appearance with carbon fiber side trimmings.

The single toggle of the Voyager 520 has several functions: for volume control, turning the headset on and off, and for handling calls. The call functions include synchronization, voice activation, last call redial, answer and reject call. Switching the volume rocker up and down can be a bit tricky for some. Also, an LED is located above the toggle, which glows blue and red depending on the function. The one-button functionality of the Voyager 520 is really an innovative design to make calls more efficient.

Battery life is improved in the Voyager 520 with up to 8 hours of talk time and 7 days of standby time. It also has support for Bluetooth version 2.0. The pairing process of the Voyager 520 headset with most mobile phones goes smoothly, thanks to the Plantronics QuickPair system which automatically sets the headset into pairing mode once it is powered on. You can also toggle between two Bluetooth enabled devices with its MultiPoint technology. More importantly, the Voyager 520 is equipped with AudioIQ technology which improves call quality, making it clear and dependable.
