“Always-on-the-go mobile users may answer a call in a cab, take it out
on the street, and not say their goodbyes until they’ve finished their
latte at the coffee shop – they need reliable audio that effortlessly
handles transitions, much like they do,” said Jan Caldarella, senior
category manager, Mobile Communications at Plantronics. “Voyager Edge is
the perfect companion to any smartphone, offering premium features in a
stylish, intelligent earpiece.”
Designed to make an impression, Voyager Edge elegantly blends
eye-catching style with careful attention to comfort, with its
lightweight form factor and soft-touch, natural materials. The
earpiece-only design (no over-the-ear component) makes it easy to put on
and remove and is particularly convenient for use with glasses or
sunglasses. With its portable charging case, the Voyager Edge is an
always-ready companion – always charged and ready to keep the wearer
Portable charging case: The protective rechargeable case tops
up the earpiece battery, adding up to 10 more hours of talk time,
features touch-sensitive controls, and shows the charge status of both
headset and case.
Noise-cancellation: Multiple microphones and signature
Plantronics audio technology eliminate disruptive background noise so
your caller hears the speaker, not their surroundings.
Smart Sensor technology: Responsive sensors intuitively direct
calls to the phone or headset, pause music for incoming calls, and
automatically answer calls as the wearer places the headset on their
Voice commands and audio alerts: Allows wearers to use their
voice to answer or ignore calls, check battery level, connection
status, and more. And Voyager Edge announces the incoming caller’s
name – no need to look at the phone to check who is calling.

choice by simply selecting a preferred language during the set-up
Always-Ready Battery life: Charging via MicroUSB, the Voyager
