A perfect companion for smartphones, the ultralight Plantronics Marque 2 features DeepSleep power-saving mode and dual microphones that reduce noise and wind for clear, crisp call quality. You can also manage your calls without pressing buttons--just say "Answer" or "Ignore."
The Marque 2 takes you beyond the headset with Plantronics exclusive Vocalyst service, which lets you manage e-mail, check weather, or update Facebook. You can also check the headset's battery level from your iPhone, or use the free MyHeadset app to display the battery meter on your Android smartphone as well as view connectivity and charging levels.
Featuring the latest Bluetooth 3.0 technology, the Marque 2 includes the A2DP Bluetooth profile for audio streaming capabilities, so you can listen to music, podcasts, or GPS directions from your smartphone. With its multipoint pairing capability, you can quickly switch active connections between two paired phones and answer calls from either one. Other features include enhanced clarity on wideband-enabled smartphones, a comfortable fit in either ear with one of three optional eartips, and a voice-guided pairing process.
This version comes in black, but it's also available in white.
Always Ready with DeepSleep Mode
Plantronics DeepSleep power-saving mode activates when your Marque 2 is away from your phone for over 90 minutes. When it's back in range (33 feet or less), you can just tap the Call button to "wake" it up. Using the DeepSleep mode can extend the battery readiness up to 180 days.
The Marque 2 lets you be truly hands free when a call comes in. You'll hear a ringtone in the headset, and then it will ask: "Incoming call, Answer or Ignore?" If you want to answer the call, just say "Answer." By saying "Ignore," the call is sent straight to voicemail. It's that easy.
Vocalyst Voice Service
The Vocalyst service allows you to stay connected with your voice. You can say "Facebook" to post to Facebook, "Listen to Email" to hear your email, or "Reminder" to record a reminder. You can even listen to up-to-the-minute news, sports, and weather feeds--all hands-free. Vocalyst works with any phone, and has additional features for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. It's offered free for the first year (a $24.99 value).

Many others have given extensive reviews already, so I shall focus on the key noticeable differences over the M55. I would say that the main one is that it has a button on it rather than the button being incorporated into the body of the unit. This makes a huge difference, as when you went to either put it in your ear or reposition it, you would inadvertently press the button and end up hanging up on the call. I haven't noticed too much difference in functionality other than it reacts and connects a bit quicker. It also seems to feel slightly less plasticky and better quality.
for me, the button arrangement alone make it worth it over the M55.
Had this for a week or so now and the intitial impressions are good, functionality, comfort, call quality and battery life are all good.
Fit / Comfort
It is surprisingly comfortable and in my stays in my right ear very well even without the supplied ear hook. My left ear on the other hand it does not feel quite so secure, I'm guessing this is down to the shape of my ear, but still better than the JabraTALK this has replaced. It is very lightweight and a bit smaller than other headsets I've had so this probably helps. When it is in my ear I can't actually feel that it is in.
The battery life appears to be good and I like the way it actually translates battery life into estimated talktime which it announced everytime you switch it on. This appears to be quite accurate too, when you have a fully charged headset it announces it has 7hrs of talktime and following an hour phone call this dropped to 6hrs of talktime. I would feel comfortable going away for a week and not taking a charger with me although it will probably invalidate the warranty as it uses a standard micro USB connection if you have a Android phone, Kindle or MiFi dongle the charger will fit and more than likely charge successfully.
Probably the most important factor As with all the other Plantronics headsets I have had over the years the call quality and connection quality is great, people sound clear to me and I've jet to have anyone complain that they can't hear me. The device has always stayed connected through any phone call which I can't say of the JabraTALK.
The extended bluetooth capability means it can play music and other sounds from my iPhone, the quality is perfect for podcasts and sat-nav instructions and even though it is mono, music is quite good too. The fact it is a multipoint headset is very useful for people like me who have both a work mobile and a personal mobile as it connects to both when you switch it on and then whichever rings it connects to.
Unlike other reviewers I got the USB car charger and the pass through charging cable, I can confirm that the supplied charger has sufficient power to supply the iPhone 5 with enough juice to charge the device and use Sat-Nav at the same time as charging the headset; something not all 12v USB chargers can do. Also included in the package was a plastic ear hook which I'm guessing could be used if your ear didn't quite fit the device or you felt that it wasn't as secure as you would like.
The sound is really clear and the person on the other end can't tell that im on a hands free device. Ive been using this for quite a few months now and would say that the battery has started to run out much quicker (hence the 4 stars) but it still works well and only have to charge maybe once a week. Bear in mind that its used all day everyday! When I first had it the battery would last for almost 3 weeks! Charging is really easy, its just the standard phone charger lead.
It was a bad decision. People now struggle to hear me properly, even in a quiet office. The Voyager on the other hand is so good that I could leave my office, get into the car, drive home and walk into the house, without the other party on the call knowing I'd left the office. So don't be a tight wad like myself and spend the extra.
