Plantronics, a great audio electronics company headquartered in Santa Cruz, California, made a big hit on consumer’s multi-function headset market with Voyager Legend. It received a very large amount of positive reviews from its users, so the fans regard its “Legend” name more of a real title than just an ordinary name. Later, the manufacturer produced an upgraded version named Voyager Edge. The sequel received a few buffs on several aspects, but also with an increment of the price. We are going to see whether Voyager Edge provides better worth than Voyager Legend or not.
Both models are wireless Bluetooth headsets with bunches of features. They are compatible across gadgets, able to work in integration with iPhone, Android, as well as other leading smartphones. At first, Plantronics Voyager Legend is armed with Bluetooth 3.0, but now it is produced with Bluetooth 4.0 just like Plantronics Voyager Edge. The key functionalities like Smart Sensor and Voice Recognition are present in both models. The device can automatically detect if they are being worn or not to decide whether they should take calls and notifications from your phone. You can also answer calls trouble-free by simply commanding the device using your words.
Plantronics Voyager Edge has one added feature, which is NFC pairing. It also differs from Plantronics Voyager Legend on its charging port. It does not use proprietary magnetic charging port anymore. Instead, it uses the universal Micro-USB. However, strangely enough, the Edge has shorter battery life than the Legend. The talk time is only 6 hours, or 16 hours with the charging case. As a comparison, the Legend’s is 7 hours or 21 hours with the charging case.
