Plantronics has been producing high-quality headsets for about as long as we can remember, but the name of the latest - Legend - suggests that this is the best yet.
Described simply as 'the world's smartest headset,' this £60 solution is geared toward professional users who demand comfort and top-notch call quality above all else. And that's an important differentiation to make. There are plenty of smaller Bluetooth headsets on the market, and in comparison, Plantronics' Legend looks like a chunky piece of kit.
The use of plastic material ensures that the Legend is suitably light (18g), and the textured, almost rubber-like finish makes the headset feel comfortable around the ear, though it's simply not small enough to go unnoticed. We found it very comfortable to wear during calls, but we preferred to take it off when not in use.
Plantronics is continuing to use the same form factor as the award-winning Voyager Pro, and the Legend is, for the most part, an evolution of the series that touts refinements throughout. The 2012 model is fractionally smaller in body and features a thinner boom, yet it still feels well-built and the black-with-silver design has a professional look about it.
