Plantronics Savor M1100

Plantronics Savor M1100
The Plantronics Savor M1100 Bluetooth headset is one of the most innovative and reliable on the market. You’ll see the difference right away as you put the sleek-looking device into your ear. There is no ear-hook required, but the earpiece fits snugly and comfortably. The multiple microphones help cancel outside noises even in loud environments. The Plantronics Bluetooth headset is our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award winner because of the extensive feature set and the clear sound quality. The Plantronics Bluetooth headset comes with a year subscription to the Vocalyst voice and text service. Vocalyst will read aloud your text messages and emails. You can also record emails and text messages, and with the Pro version you can use your Bluetooth headset to post messages to blogs and update your Twitter account.

The Plantronics wireless headset is steps ahead of the competition. They have been putting out fantastic headsets for years, and the Savor M1100 is no exception. The first, and most important feature, we reviewed was sound quality. The Bluetooth headset has three separate microphones. The microphones on the back of the headset help to cancel out all the excess noise and interference that may be coming from a variety of external factors. The Bluetooth headset will work perfectly on a crowded city street or in a quiet office. It can run into some limited interference when encountering other radio frequencies, but this wasn’t really a problem for us.

The sound quality of the Bluetooth headset would be enough to make it outstanding, but the Plantronics product also comes with a program called Plantronics Vocalyst. With the purchase of the headset, you’ll also receive one free year of the Vocalyst service. Normally, this is about $25 a year. The service has a large variety of easy-to-use features. One of our favorites was the text and email features. Just because you are on the road does not mean the texts and emails stop coming. The Plantronics Vocalyst service will alert you when you have a new message. It will read the message out loud and ask if you’d like to respond. If you send an email, the sound recording will be uploaded to the Plantronics servers and it will send a link to the audio. Text messages are sent as texts, not audio links. Before sending anything, the program will read back the message and ask for your approval.

The Vocalyst program supports a huge variety of different applications and features. You can call the Vocalyst number and listen to news feeds, sports scores, weather updates and finance updates. The Vocalyst program also has built-in support for many common applications including Twitter, Blogger, PingFm, Remember the Milk, 30 Boxers, Tumblr and many more. We loved all the different applications and the versatility of this Bluetooth headset. It truly has more features than any other similar device. And with the perfect sound quality, it makes purchasing this Bluetooth headset an easy choice.

The Plantronics headset is compatible with other applications available on every app network including IOS, Android and Blackberry markets. You don’t have to use the Plantronics Vocalyst program for the voice dialing, texting and other options, but it is free for the first year and extremely user-friendly.

The wireless headset is compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled devices. This means you can use this for your phone, computer or even your gaming console. The range on the headset is approximately 33 feet, though the closer you are to the Bluetooth stereo headset, the better the sound will be.

After you connect the cordless headset once, you won’t have to go through the setup process again. The Bluetooth headset will automatically recognize all the factory settings and you’ll be able to use the headset without any extra steps. You can also use the same headset on more than one phone. This is called multipoint technology.

The Bluetooth headset is also A2DP enabled. This will allow you to stream music to your headset and when you receive a call, you’ll be able to stop listening to your music and answer the call. The wireless headset and microphone have a phenomenal sound quality whether you're listening to music or making phone calls.

Ease of Use:
Using the Plantronics Savor M1100 headset is extremely simple. Have the phone or device you wish to connect to and turn on the headset. The prompts will guide you through the entire setup process. The user manual also has detailed instructions that will be helpful if you get lost.

Using the headset is extraordinarily intuitive. You can give voice commands, or use the buttons on your phone and on the outside of the device to control the volume and turn it on or off. However, one of the few flaws we saw on this headset is that it only has one volume button, it can only go louder until it reaches the max volume and then it will start at the softest setting.

The Plantronics Savor M1100 headset is beautifully designed but not ostentatious. The Bluetooth headset is a small V-shaped design and is black with a gray underside. We loved the fit of the headset and were extremely grateful that it does not have the awkward over-the-ear hook. You can use this headset for hours without feeling uncomfortable. In place of an over-the-ear hook, the Plantronics Bluetooth headset has a small, rubber insert on the earpiece.

The Bluetooth headset does not have a listed maximum battery life. It will last for around 10 hours of constant use, when the tasks vary between talking and using it for other applications. The device will need about two hours to charge from nearly empty to fully charged. The Bluetooth headset is charged with a micro-USB connection. This is a standard size and there are a variety of adapters available for vehicles, computers and normal outlets.

The Plantronics Savor M1100 is very similar to the earlier version, Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus. However, the Savor model has a new headset that does not require an over-the-ear hook. The sound quality is similar, but the comfort level and design of the Savor is much better than the Voyager.

Help & Support:
Plantronics has fantastic customer service options on their website. You can watch video tutorials, download user manuals, access databases of frequently asked questions or contact the manufacturer directly. The website has links for chat support, telephone support and email addresses. We contacted the manufacturer through all three avenues and received nearly immediate responses. The manufacturer covers the headset with a limited one-year warranty.

The Plantronics Savor M1100 Bluetooth headset comes with a large assortment of outstanding voice dialing and operating integration. We also loved all the different applications the headset supports such as Twitter and Wordpress. But on top of all the other smaller features, this headset has crystal-clear sound quality.
