A week with the Plantronics Voyager 5200 UC

I have used the Voyager 5200 for a week now. And its noise cancelation is as brilliant as this promotional video suggests. My hardcore test was going as fast as I could on my bike and there was zero noise at the other end. You couldn't even hear one bit of wind at all. I could hear it in my earpiece, from the drag on the headset. But not at the other end of the line. You will have to watch the video I linked above. You can speak in a very low key voice, barely audible and completely incomprehensible to anyone around you, on the bus or in traffic, and you come across loud and clear. There is just a bit of metallic distortion. Listen carefully in the video. It's kind of magic.

You wear this thing in the office, in your car, but most likely not when walking around. But that's ok. Just leave it switched on, put it away in your pocket, and when you get a call, put it on. Its sensors recognize when it's on your ear and accept the call automatically. Here is a video how to handle the headset.

It is better than a Voyager Edge? Yes, it is. Is it better than a Focus or a Legend? Not by much, unless you use it outdoors.
