Whether at home, in the office or while travelling, electronics have become a major part of our lives. Simply put we would not be able to work, play or communicate without electronics. We live in a highly modernized world where consumers demand high quality, fast delivery, and full support for the products they want to buy. They expect instant customer service and go online to the Social Networks to complain or ask for assistance. It’s the consumer’s dream and big businesses nightmares, but with the support of the modern gadgets we have today, it has become possible for industries to keep up with such high demands. Having electronics and computers to help people keep track and stay connected with co-workers, customers, suppliers, friends and family is today's prerequisite. We have an extensive selection of electronics such as LED TVs, Home theatre systems, blu-ray players and more from top brands like LG, Bose, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and more.
It LOOKS like the Plantronics Voyager Legend bluetooth headset. They CALL it a Voyager Legend, appropriating the model name from Plantronics. The packaging could pass for a Plantronics bulk pack. Even the package typeface is identical to the Plantronics.
But it ISN'T a Plantronics Voyager Legend headset, it is a cheap knockoff, making use of a common Chinese marketing scheme to pass items off as authentic.
I recently purchased on of these items, from whom is not important. What IS important is that you KNOW what you are getting. To be fair, the seller DID say this was a generic unit, even though the item name is identical to a Plantronics. I purchased it based on the listed capabilities.
It claims the following capabilities:
Bluetooth version 4.0+A2DP
Voice commands, Optional voice answering (YES / NO) or voice reporting function
Support voice prompts Britain always switch
Large speaker for fuller audio? Comfortable design for long-term use
Noise-cancelling technology with triple-wind microphones
Access to Vocalyst service for e-mails, newsfeeds
Intuitively pauses music when calls come in
Auto-answers when headset is placed onto ear during incoming calls
Innovative design ergonomic ear structure, wear more consistent with no pressure, compact, lightweight, soft and delicate cable, moderate length is not wrapped, sports, leisure songs best choice:
Up to 6 hours of talking
Up to 5 days on stand-by
Wind Noise Reduction
Compatible with 2 devices
All smartphones that have Bluetooth
All Tablets that have Bluetooth
All Mps or Ipods that have Bluetooth
All computers and Laptops that have Bluetooth
I'm not going to get into a full review of all of the claimed capabilities, I'm just going to tell you what I experienced.
First, the voice prompts are all in Chinese, so unless you are fluent in one of the Chinese dialects, there is no way of knowing what you are being prompted to do. Second, the instruction booklet is bare-bones, with many misspellings and bad translations, and they list no option to change the voice prompts to english.
While I was FINALLY able to get the bluetooth to pair with my iPhone 6, the unit would not actually allow me to make a phone call. Although the postings claim to support voice call commands, according to the instructions calling a number requires you to first dial the number on the phone, at which point the headset is supposed to pick up the call. I tried doing this a number of times, but the headset never picked up the call and transferred it to the headset.
Finally, saying this unit makes use of "voice commands" is a real stretch. You cannot tell it to dial a number; you cannot use voice commands to check for any other available commands, and even if you could, they are all in Chinese. You can only accept or decline incoming calls - and since the voice prompts are in Chinese, I'm not confident it will understand MY commands in english.
In short, just be sure what you are getting. If you are looking for an authentic Plantronics, make sure it SAYS Plantronics. If you have a question, contact the seller. Understand that this is a cheap knockoff of the Plantronics Voyager Legend that may or may not do everything (or even ANYTHING) you want it to do
