Design, Features and Performance
Plantronics Pro has a plain and solid design made out of best quality materials and great engineering efforts. The dimension of the headphone is 9.1 x 4.6 x 9.1 inches and it weighs 11.8 ounces (that makes it bulky and heavy). The color combination used in the device is simply amazing.
The headband is friendly, comfy and expandable to fit any head types. The ear cups are designed bigger for some reasons. They accommodate all the controls. The left ear cup includes Play/Pause button, a jog dial for skipping forward or backward, a switch to turn on active noise cancellation (ANC), an audio-in port and a micro-USB port for charging. The headphone comes with a purple audio cable (with a three-button remote) and a micro-USB cord.
The right ear cup includes the call button for answering or ending calls, a volume control ring, and a power on/off switch. On the bottom part of the ear cup you’ll find a small button that can temporarily disables noise cancellation and allows ambient noise for those times when you like to hear what’s going on around (thumbs up for this). The button also mutes the microphone when you are in call mode.
The ear cups can easily rotate 90 degrees to lay flat for easy storage inside the black nylon bag.
The headphone has smart sensors placed in both cups that pause and resume your streaming audio while you take it off or put it on. That is what we loved the most.
The sound quality is just impressive, very clean and balanced. The headphone blocks out unwanted background noise with on-demand active noise canceling technology and allows you to fully focus and enjoy your music with pure, accurate and immersive sound. Though the noise canceling function is one of its main and great features but still the quality of sound rocks better in normal mode.
The connectivity is very good. You can pair the device using NFC, wireless and wired. It works on advanced Class 1 Bluetooth which enhances the connection range and controls devices from up to 330 ft (100m) which is a great feature however it is applicable only if the connected device also supports the same Bluetooth version while most of the smartphones and tablets use class 2 Bluetooth. .Overall, the Bluetooth quality is very good.
The Battery Life is excellent; it allows you to listen your favorite musics continuously up to 24 hours just with a single charge. Great feature for travelers. The DeepSleep hibernation mode option can extends battery life by up to 5-6 months.
Another rare and great feature you find in the headphone is the multi-device syncing functionality at the same time that allows you to get connected both to your tablet to watch and listen to your best tracks and also with your mobile phone to answer your incoming calls. Added values to the product.
The comfort level, it is totally comfortable with those well-crafted soft cushions, while you might need to take some breaks and rest your ears if you are listening for long period of time. Something common with all types of headphones.
Other noticeable features include a 5-LED battery indicator, Left/Right indicators inside of the ear cups and voice prompts for power status, battery life, Bluetooth pairing status, max volume, and others.
Plantronics Pro is compatible and friendly with all smart devices including iPhone, iPad, and Droid devices.
It is a great headphone to consider for offering amazing sound, advanced technology, best reviews and ratings from the users, best functionality, other great features, and a reasonable price tag which gives a great value for money while it only lacks a bit in design for not looking so sexy and also it is heavier in weight. If you are a music lover and need something special then add it in your shortlist. It worth it.
