    Plantronics M25- Great Headset, November 3, 2012

    I have had a Plantronics M50 headset for about 10 months and was going to order one for my wife, but bought this instead. I was reluctant to order the M25 because of the mixed reviews and was not sure of the new gel loop earpiece. It is a very good headset and comfortable. I have not worn it all day yet, but the loop wedges in the ear and does not bother me so far.
    This is a little shorter than the M50 and about 70% as thick. Without the wraparound earpiece, it feels much smaller.
    The M25 has an eleven hour talk time and when you turn it on, it tells you how many hours are available.
    I do not have the dropped connection issues with the M25 that others have reported. It has a tad shorter range than the M50, but this is not a problem. The advertised range is 33′ and so far meets the claim.

    11/14/12 update- This headset is comfortable to wear all day.
    Volume- It is better than the M50. The M50 even at the lowest setting can hurt my ear to the point that I jammed a piece of cotton in the ear bud. This M25 has a reasonable level, but does not make you go deaf.
    Range- The M50 does win this one, but the M25 can easily go 25′.
    If I were to order a headset today, I would pick this over the M50. The M50 is very good, but this has better volume, is more comfortable and smaller to drop in your pocket(just turn off first to avoid pocket redial)

    The Best Entry Level headset, January 21, 2013

    This review is from: Plantronics M25 Bluetooth Headset – Retail Packaging – Silver/Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    I bought this headset primarily for driving use.
    This head set is small, lightweight and reasonably comfortable to wear. Now I use it regularly even when not driving.

    What I liked about this headset.
    a. Affordable, light, compact.
    b. A2DP function: Normally a wireless headset can only provide audio when making ‘calls’. While a wired headset can provide audio when making calls plus, listening to media (audio, video), games, phone system sounds, gps, etc. In a nutshell the wireless headset now works like a regular wired headset.
    At times I use the headset to watch media or play games as not to disturb my children while they sleep beside me.

    Note: This headset is primarily designed to provide voice clarity when making calls. Sound is very clear and perfect when it comes to ‘people speaking’ type of audio. Don’t expect audio quality to be excellent when it comes to listening to music (treble and bass) — definitely no stereo sound as you need a left and right headset to get this.

    c. Long battery life: With A2DP function, headset will be pointless if it has poor battery life. M25 is rated at 11 hours talk time and 125 days standby time. Have been using this headset for 4 days now and the battery still registers 9 hours of talk time.

    There are instances that I forgot to turn the unit off the entire day. Battery life from 10 hours registered 9 hours the following day. The battery consumption in my opinion is superb!

    d. Can connect to 2 devices at the same time
    I have not tried to connect to 2 phones yet. But I do connect to my mobile phone and PC at the same time and hear audio from both. A limitation I found here is that the PC will always register as phone 1 and my mobile phone will be registered as phone 2.
    Device registered in phone 2 will not have A2DP function. While the PC registered in phone 1 seem to have A2DP as I hear all PC system sounds from the headset.

    e. Plantronics App from Android market
    Plantronics come with a ‘Headset Battery Meter’ app from Android Market. I can see the battery life of my device from my android app which is a plus for me. (note: headset will also tell you remaining talk time each time headset is turned on).

    Clarifying issues encountered by other reviewers.
    1. Disconnection issues: Personally I have not yet encountered any disconnection issues with the following scenarios.
    Driving: Headset on my ear, phone is either in my pocket or in one of the cup holders in the vehicle (range: within 3 feet).
    Regular use: Headset on my ear, phone in my pocket. (range: within 2 feet)
    PC use: Headset on my ear connected to Notebook PC (range: 3 feet)

    Other notes:
    Difference between M25 and M55.
    M55 is basically an M25 with added voice command feature. You can say ‘answer’ or ‘ignore’ to accept or reject calls. That is the only major difference that I know and the rest should be the same. The voice command feature comes at a premium of USD 10.00. Vocalyst feature will add more voice command features by controlling your mobile phone with an annual subscription rate. This added feature I do not require hence I went with the M25 instead.

    Great headset. Here’s why…, August 26, 2012

    I have both the jawbone ERA and the M25. Bottom line:
    Jawbone ERA:
    Pros: bells and whistles,extras, great mic,
    Cons: pricy, flat sound quality, heavy,
    Plantronics: M25:
    Pros: great speaker sound quality, very light in the ear. great mic.
    Cons: no USB charging solution included.

    Between the two I would buy the M25 hands down. I can buy 3 m25 for the same price as 1 jawbone. Jawbone ERA Bluetooth Headset – Shadowbox – Retail Packaging

    I called a friend and asked how the I sound when using the m25 and he said he could not tell I was on a headset. When I switched betweent the phone and m25 he said the headset sounded crisp and clear.

    Rated at 11 hrs of talk time vs 5 for the jawbone. I have yet test to test actual times. It’s half the size and much lighter which is important. You don’t feel the weight so it’s easy to wear long term as it stays in the ear.Y

    Test the m25 with music it was clear the m25 sounds so much better then the jawbone. Richer bass, brighter highs, nothing harsh or flat,for a headrest. The jawbone obviously did not sound as good switching between the two of them.
    I have had no problem with connection. The range is good so far an have no problem walking around the office or putting the phone in my pocket. There’s no indication of compression and connection noise. This is my 4th different headset over the years and by far this is the M25 out performs the others.
    I’ll have to report back when I have tested the following:
    Mic camparison between the two
    Noisy situation
    Talk time, charge time, standby by time
    Range

    Overall I have been very happy with the performance of the m25
