Great Product

By CR12345

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

I have washed this ear piece twice and dried it in the dryer once. I droppedit at work. Found it the next day after a heavy rain storm. It still works.


Not the greatest but good for hands-free

By Linda Diaz

from College Park, MD, United States

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

The sound is not great. The blue tooth drops calls. This one has no voice control to amswer and no caller ID to say who is calling. It is very comfortable and great for hands-free use in states that have laws on talking and driving.


Works great, sound is solid

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

I have had the Explorer 500 for a few weeks now and it is a solid performer. While I can't keep it in for more than a few hours at a time without it getting uncomfortable, for the length of a phone meeting or two (30-45 minutes) it is perfect. Easy to use and small enough to be unobtrusive.


Great Sound, Great Fit, Solid Hardware

By capnk

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

Best Bluetooth headset I've ever owned. And I've owned a few. I don't like those bulky around the ear styles. So this looked right up my line. It 'just fits' (without an ear loop) doesn't fall out EVER, it sounds great both ways, great volume, connects fast and I can walk a long way away from my phone and it just keeps working. Couldn't do this with my other earpieces and same phone. Kinda sad it doesn't have talking Caller ID. , and the incoming call announcement is a bit low. (the two reasons for my 4 not 5 rating) Overall this earpiece is so great to use I'll deal with my missing the talking caller ID. But it sure would be good to find out Plantronics offered an updated firmware to include that. The hardware and usability are GREAT. If you are shopping for another one, Don't pass this up.


Talking in the car is easier now

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

Much better than using a speakerphone in the car. I called my mom, and she told me that it was almost as good as talking on the phone when it's held up to my ear. It's plenty good enough for my use, and at a very reasonable price. Thank you!


I like that it's small ...

By Sherr

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

I like that it's small but not flimsy and it's pretty comfortable. I would like it better if you didn't have to press so hard on the earpiece to talk into it.

I bought one of theses a few months back and I have dropped it in the mud, hot tub, forgot it in my ear and I have showered with it and it still worked same for my husband as well but I dropped mine in my dog pen and I didn't get to it in time to save it so I had to buy another one and I will continue to buy this product it works and last all day if I'm not listing to music , if Iam listening to music it last 3/4 of the day. It all around great buy and works great! Also it charges fast as well


Nice unit

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

I purchased online after reading reviews and previous experience with Plantronics hbluetooth headsets and I was not not dispointed. Easy to set up and easy to use, nice voice and audio quality, looks great and hope to enjoy this for years to come.


Mid Rage Headset for small to medium call volume!

By Mansel

from Luton, United Kingdom

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

This Headset is middle of the road. Comfortable and has some noise cancelling HD. The charge strap is practical for handbags and travel bags. However for hard case protection you back want to splash out and go for a Legend.


Poor Volume

By Kit6

from West Jefferson, NC, United States

Comments about Plantronics Explorer 500 Bluetooth Headset:

Bought this thru Verizon to work with my IPhone 7, read the reviews and really thought this would be a fantastic headset. I drive for a living so need hands free, it paired beautifully but no matter what you could not get the volume up high enough to hear. I tried with 2 other new IPhones and the same issue. I contacted Plantronics and wanted to exchange for a better set, but all I could do is exchange it. Exchanging it would not be much good, it worked with my Samsung phone so the issue appears to be a IPhone.
