Why would I need a Bluetooth headset?
If you are constantly out and about driving and need to make and receive phone calls, then you will need a Bluetooth headset.

What makes this headset different?
The Plantronics Explorer 500 headset sits in your ear comfortably, reducing external noise while still delivering crystal clear sound. As well as making and receiving calls, the voice activated device can control Siri, Google Now and Cortana. Using the buttons on the headset, you can even control your music and streaming audio.

What comes included with this headset?
Within the package for the Explorer 500 comes a microUSB charge strap which allows you to attach the headset to a bag or a belt loop with the aid of a magnetic closure. The headset also comes with an in-car 12V charging plug, allowing you to charge the headset while on the move and not in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice. Due to the nature of my work (running a family business) I go through quite a few sets annually, I have tried no less than 5 sets of different makes, this one beats all, pairs easily, talk time is 11 hours, charges in no time, notification of when it is on/off, receiving/making a call are clearly announced as well as the battery life which shows on the phone set also. 10 out of 10.

Is this working with Dragon Professiolan system?

Asked by: joann
Any microphone should work, but you must tell the operating system that that is the default audio input device.
