Device Review: Plantronics Voyager PRO UC

Disclaimer: Plantronics did me a sample device to test out, but this post is not a paid review in any way.

Prior to my poor experience with the Jabra GO 6430 and Communicator I had picked up a Plantronics Voyager PRO for use with my iPhone in the car because of California’s hands-free driving laws. I had been extremely happy with the quality of that device and was surprised to see Plantronics had also released a UC certified version for Communicator. My favorite headset up until then had been the Plantronics Savi Go, but I needed something a lot more portable on a day-to-day basis and the Savi Go charging stand was a bit bulky. I definitely needed to replace that Jabra so I picked up a PRO UC to try with Communicator with high hopes based on my experience with the Savi Go.

I was very happy to see that the Voyager PRO UC worked well with MOC right out of the box – no installation or drivers needed, just the way it should be. The multi-function button worked great and the headset was extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time with the felt ear bud cover. The sound quality is definitely on par with the Savi Go which was already the best device out there so you can’t go wrong with this headset. As an added bonus it also pairs with a mobile phone so I can get by with a single headset now for my work calls when I have Communicator open and when I’m on the road driving with my mobile.

There really isn’t much to say. The device works as advertised, it looks good and the sound quality is outstanding. For someone who is constantly mobile this is the headset I’d recommend using, but if you’re at a desk more often the Savi Go is still a great choice.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
