Default Quick feedback on the new Plantronics Voyager 510 (w/ windsmart)

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my new updated Plantronics Voyager 510 yesterday and have been using it all day today. I am coming from quite a number of different headsets but most recently for the BB8700, its been the Bluespoon AX, Motorola H700, and a wired Plantronics MX150. I did not have any experiences with the previous 510 version but the new one (silver and black color scheme) works really well. The built in "windsmart" tip seems to work fairly well but it hasn't been too windy here in Atlanta. Anyways, I have been experiencing poor range and voice quality with the weak BB bluetooth radio but gave the updated 510 a try since some Treo (its BT radio is supposedly worse than the BBs) guys had good experiences with it. I have to say the range is good and the noise cancelling is almost up to par with the MX150 but 10x better than the H700. The headset is actually smaller than I expected and is light enough to carry in the front shirt pocket. Oh, one last thing, the incoming volume is super loud. I have to adjust my volume to 25% compared to the other headsets above I've used.

So far, so good, it's a keeper. I'll continue to use it in normal business situations (in the office, running through airports, out on the golf course, etc.) until someone tells me that they can't hear me, then I'll switch back to the MX150 or see what else new is out at that moment.

are you experiencing any lag in time from ringing to answering?
