Two Bluetooth Items : Plantronics Explorer 395 & E-blue A2DP Bluetooth Audio Receiver

 

First a rather nice small Bluetooth earpiece from Plantronics. The other item is from Brando those clever USB people in Hong Kong; it is a natty Bluetooth Audio receiver to allow you to remove the wires from almost any audio device.

It is 5x1.5x2cm this does include the clear plastic hook that fits over the ear to keep the unit in place once twisted into position in the ear. Not only is this small but also very light at only 10grams. It is black with silvered edges and a silver...

Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth headset review

 

The device is very lightweight and conservative in design – it is not as discreet or as stylish as some headsets we've seen, but is reasonably comfortable to wear. It has separate buttons for controlling the volume and answering and ending calls. We...

The Explorer 395 feels well priced, and you'll definitely get more if your budget stretches further, but for its target entry level market it does the job well.

Comfortable, appealing price

Some audio quality issues

While it doesn't offer the audio quality you get with more expensive technology, the Plantronics Explorer 395 is comfortable to wear, simple to use and offers reasonable-quality audio for its price

Plantronics Explorer 395

 

The Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth headset offers good sound quality and a comfortable fit for a bargain price.

Comfortable. Clear sound. Simple, reliable control scheme. Good value.

Ineffective noise canceling. One-size-fits-all design. Can't pair with more than one device simultaneously.

Call Quality, Other Features, and Conclusions I paired the Plantronics Explorer 395 with an Apple iPhone 3GS ($199-$299, ), a Samsung Moment SPH-M900 ($199, ), and a BlackBerry Pearl 8130 ($199, ) without problems. Overall sound quality was excellent,...

Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth Headset review: Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth Headset

 

Plantronics is a popular brand among Bluetooth headset aficionados because of quality headsets like the Plantronics Discovery 975 and the Plantronics Voyager Pro . However, the company also makes entry-level headsets for those who don't have as much...

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is a comfortable and easy-to-use Bluetooth headset with a dedicated power switch and an affordable price.

We wish the Plantronics Explorer 395 came with extra earbud sizes. It doesn't have very good noise-canceling features.

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is a great entry-level Bluetooth headset, as long as you stick to quieter environments.

Plantronics Explorer 395 Review

 

We've been impressed with Plantronics last few Bluetooth headsets, finding the company's DSP offers a decent balance of background noise reduction while not making callers sound hopelessly artificial. What happens when Plantronics tries to do DSP on a...

Plantronics Explorer 395 Bluetooth Headset Review

 

The Plantronics Explorer 395 is the company's newest reasonably priced bluetooth headset. Now before I go any further, to put this review into full perspective, I'm also the Moderator at HowardForums for all things Bluetooth. I sadly own more headsets...

A sliding power on/off switch! Good voice clarity in quiet environments

Sliding power switch "red for off" is a little confusing. DSP noise reduction and wind resistance not the greatest, but not surprising at this price. Glossy finish picks up grime
