What customers say about "Key Specs"
Plantronics Explorer 10 Bluetooth Headset
  • Great product, excellent quality sound, brilliant mic with noise cancelling.
  • The reduction of background noise means that sound is really clear. The people who have been on the other end of my calls have always commented how good the sound quality.
  • Comfy on the ear even for long periods of time and work perfectly. Long talk time too, and the charge doesn't run out if I don't use it for a few days like it has with other earpieces.
  • Great little device. It fits nice and snug in the ear, the sound is clear, and the unit is easy to use.
  • After some time, an unpleasant noise appeared during a conversation.
Plantronics Explorer 50 Bluetooth Headset
  • Sound quality is very clear and no lose of quality as you move away from phone.
  • The sound whilst on a call was clear, both for me and the other end - in fact they said they could hear virtually no background noise whilst I was driving.
  • Even with high traffic background noise the sound remains clear.
  • The sound quality is good but could be a bit louder. It is easy to operate and talk time is good.
  • I bought this product last year and was very happy with it until I've lost it. I've ordered again the same item. This time, after a few weeks, the headset is not working anymore.

What customers say about "Features"
Plantronics Explorer 10 Bluetooth Headset
  • Controls 2 phones at the same time and Works with Siri at the touch of a button and also android.
  • The controls are very simple to work too. There's a voice that tells you the battery level when you turn the headset on.
  • The best bluetooth earpiece in my opinion. Small and light with easy volume control,easy on and off and double click on/off to redial last dialled number.
  • You can't remove the ear hook either, which seems to pull the unit away from your ear.
  • Buttons are a little fiddly when I am wearing it.
Plantronics Explorer 50 Bluetooth Headset
  • Very simple to use, one button does most of the work. Links to my Sony Z3 and the Google voice app works very well.
  • Easy connection. Great to be able to have 2 bluetooth phones/sources connected at the same time!
  • The call button will work with Siri so could make use of voice controls.
  • My only real criticism is the plastic over the ear clip. Would have been better if it was something like a rubber clip.
  • Would have been better if there were + - buttons for the volume control, instead of just one button that cycles through the range.

What customers say about "Power"
Plantronics Explorer 10 Bluetooth Headset
  • Love the fact that a voice upon turning on tells you how much talk time you have left, therefore not leaving you wondering whether it needs charging.
  • Takes roughly 2 hours to fully charge and gives 11hours of talk time. Overall fantastic headset!
  • The operating life of the battery is excellent. I don't use it all the time but seems in 'real life' more than adequate for my use and it's very important.
  • Battery life is excellent I charge it about once every week or so depending on usage.
  • It's work but not work for longer time, don't buy it it has low battery storage, only for 1 hours.
Plantronics Explorer 50 Bluetooth Headset
  • When it does need charging I only have to plug it in for 30mins -1hr and I get back my 11hrs talking time!
  • It's comfortable to wear and easy to use, and I've just had to re-charge the battery for the first time since I bought it month ago!
  • The battery life is amazing. When you switch it on you get an announcement telling you how many hours talktime you have left so you know when you need to charge it.
  • Charges up quickly and gives at least 9 hours audio play.
  • After 8 months, the battery began to require constant charging.
