Plantronics Voyager Legend - not half bad

Just picked up a Plantronics Voyager Legend headset from the Sprint Store today.  Pairs nicely with my Motorola Photon and my work PC for Microsoft Lync calls.  Seems like I'll need an extra BT-300-M dongle to make it fully work with Lync (Presence, mute indicator, less choppy audio).  On the Photon it works as well as any BT headset I've tried - good voice quality, very comfortable to wear. 

Anyone else using the Plantronics Voyager Legend?

Anyway, ordered the BT-300-M this afternoon; I'll post an update later.  Still a great headset. Love the dedicated mute button for conference calls.

Re: Plantronics Voyager Legend - not half bad

Crawling out of my cave again - got in some extra parts (BT-300M bluetooth adapter from Plantronics) so I can hook the phone to the Microsoft Lync VOIP phone for work.  TL;DR:  Great !

Long version I wrote up for my personal blog:

I use Microsoft Lync extensively in my day job; 6 to 10 hours of calls every day over Lync.  Nearly everything we do is on Lync.

So far I've been tied to a dodgy wired USB headset; it's what was provided with the UC rollout years ago.  Sturdy but a real pain to haul back and forth to the office and back.  Today I picked up a Plantronics Voyager Legend bluetooth headset.  It's the basic $99 version, not the full boat $199 UC version.  So far it works for basic functions with Lync - I get audio in the ear from Lync, and the called party can hear me without difficulty.

It does not answer from the headset.

It does not update the Mute status when you mute on the headset.

It does not update your presence when you put the headset on or take it off.

It does pair both phone and A2DP audio to my older Motorola Photon.  No caller ID announce though; apparently the Photon doesn't support Address Book profile on Bluetooth.  Need to get a newer phone.  Next month . . .

So, I'd like some more integration - I've got the $50 BT-300-M bluetooth dongle on order to see if that will pair up with Lync and the Voyager Legend headset to tie it all together.  Should be in within a week, so I'll update the post when it arrives.

6-March:

Oddly enough, the best price anywhere for accessories is the Plantronic Shopping site.  Everyone else has markup over their prices.

13 March:

Received the BT-300M Bluetooth Dongle.  Massive improvement in PC phone call quality.  Landline class clarity, no bluetooth breakup or digital hash.  It also fully controls Lync with presence, mute, mute on the PC controls mute on the headset and more.  Fantastic.  Worth every penny if you use Lync.   I only wish I'd bought the bundled setup for $139 or so.  Indoor range is about 45 feet through multiple walls.  Basically can cover the whole house.

Also, after a few connections the contact data did finally port in from my Motorola Photon, giving you the caller ID announcement   "Call From Will England, Answer or Ignore" -- then you speak Answer, and it answers.  Very nice.

Battery life is as advertised; after a full charge, I set it to play music from the Photon.  Each hour I'd check the stated battery level; started out saying '7 Hours', then 6, 5, 4 etc.  At a bit after 7 hours it beeped and shut down for low battery life.  So, 7 hours streaming audio.  Very nice.

Comfort and weight is fine still.  Easy on, easy off.  The large physical tactile buttons are still fantastic.

TL;DR:  Great headset.  Highly recommended.
