There used to be a time when I did not like talking on the phone much. But as a busy mom running a business phone calls are now a major part of my life. Calls are no longer limited to being home at my desk. I sometimes have to participate in a conference call from my car, my kid’s school, or wherever I might be. In addition, when I am home I am usually moving around, or typing, so I like to keep my hands free. Because of this I talk on a Bluetooth earpiece.

I am not afraid to admit that I have gone through several in the past couple of years. There are some good ones out there, but I usually have an issue with one thing or the other. Not sure if I have strange ears, but usually the fit is not right. Or sometimes the volume is not loud enough. Or, the other party complains that I don’t sound clear.

And that is the importance of having a good Bluetooth earpiece.  If your earpiece is not good your calls are not clear.  The other caller may not get your intended message.  You might sound like you are in a hollow tube,  bathroom,  or worse… behind a running waterfall. Or you are uncomfortable. As busy parents we stay on the move. And when on the go we need to stay connected to our loved ones. We need technology that helps us keep it all together and stay connected safely.

The Plantronics Voyager is a Bluetooth earpiece that delivers. I have been using it now for a couple of weeks and I am told that I sound better than ever. Upon first glance I thought that I might not like it. It appears bulkier than most. The wrap around ear design is one that you do not see much anymore. However, when I have it on it is very comfortable and light weight. I was surprised at just how light it is. As a matter of fact I usually forget that I am wearing it. At an event earlier tonight someone asked if I was on the phone. It is so light and comfortable that I really do forget that it is there.


The Voyager has some awesome features like:

  • Voice Announce
  • Smart Call Routing
  • Precision Audio
  • Caller Announce & Voice Commands
