Plantronics M165 Marque 2 Ultralight Wireless Bluetooth Headset Black Friday Deals 2020
I’ll be reviewing and unboxing the Plantronics mark you too now I was in the market for a new Bluetooth headset I needed a pair for just making phone calls to go into the one ear I have a pair that go around my neck which I will be doing a video sometime soon but I wanted a pair just for making phone calls
I went to the store; what’s inside and test them out see if they’re easy to to pair and see if they sound good and if they do some noise cancellation and tapes are comfortable okay so I’ve emptied the box out it’s now an empty box and I laid out all the stuff here on my on my desk and I’m just going to read you some of the stats here off of the box to give you guys an idea of what we’re dealing with here so like I said this is the mark you – I believe the model number is M 165 you can find them on Amazon basically you have the silicone ear tips you have three different sizes you have a medium size which is the medium size I don’t know if you can see that real well medium size small and you have a large for the really big elephant ears and what the idea of these are is that when they go into your ear this rubber piece that’s attached here is supposed to press on the inside of the ear and hold them into your ear and sometimes they work pretty good I’m surprised they do work pretty good okay so what do we have here on the box it says an ultra-light design so it is this is the actual blue tooth so you can see it’s really small it’s very lightweight it’s very thin it’s going to be a real nice piece and it should stay in my ear pretty good okay so it’s saying that it has up to a 7 hours of talktime which is really nice because I do a lot of talking it also says you can have 11 day standby and they’re even cleaning here that it has a deep sleep mode which will give you a hundred and eighty days in sleep mode now you can’t make a phone call in sleep mode but it will sit there on your desk and be ready to go 180 days this thing weighs 7 grams very very light let’s see what do we have here we have voice answer so when you get a phone call you’ll be able to say answer sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t let’s see what else we have it’s bluetooth 3.0 although I would love to have seen Bluetooth 4.0 it has a 2 DP for audio streaming so you can actually listen to music with these so play music good pretty decent I mean for one side we have dual microphones plus signal processing and that is to noise cancellation wind in the background whatever I mentioned the deep sleep it has a multi-point technology and we also have wideband audio support there is also a battery meter that is compatible with iPhone and iPad and I believe that there’s an app that you can download on the for Google’s for Google Play for the Android people I don’t know what it does because I have an iPhone I want to see we have an optional clip on for your ear which looks like this it’s kind of cheap and plasticky but you know it’ll do the job to help support the Bluetooth in your ear I wouldn’t trust it too much I mean it’s just a clear piece of plastic that I feel like I could easily easily break this and this will actually go on the Bluetooth here on that speaker here okay it goes like this then you’ll hang it over your ear like so to add a little bit extra support to hold the headset in now I have small ears so I’m going to use this small ear piece and it literally just slides it’s like a little ear gel just slides over the speaker just slides over the speaker now you little look like that so I have the ear gel made out of silicone but this will press on the inside of my ear to help hold it and I use the ear loop for as long as it’ll last anyway but I have a feeling that it will break so see the seals see what it feels like get this in my ear it’s very comfortable I can hardly tell that it’s there it’s a very comfortable fit I mean it literally doesn’t feel like it’s there so I’m already impressed by that let’s take off this I want to take off this ear piece here and I want to see how well this thing that this Bluetooth stays in my ear also wanted to mention that there is this charger looks like a micro USB I believe on to the a the outlet charger it works on 120 and I believe it works on 240 as well so if you put it on an adapter yeah it’s 100 to 100 to 240 volts so you can put it on an adapter on it you can buy an adapter and you can use it over in Europe as well for overseas people that’s fantastic let’s see plain tronics usually makes good headset I had a pair before they were really good the previous para had were blue anten echt which were decent but they broke and I needed to get another pair let’s see I guess that’s it now we got to figure out how to pair them ok so let me find my iPhone somewhere here in the studio up I think it’s ok here it is here’s my iPhone and what I’m going to do is I’m going to pair this up and see how easy it is to pair now I just want to mention a game that these headphones headset display Tronics mark u2 very very light I mean I can really I barely even notice it they’re there so I’m going to go into my iPhone and I’m going to go into the settings and we’re going to bluetooth so you’ll be on this screen right here you can see that or not ok now I have to turn these things on and there is a slide button on the bottom and I heard a voice that said that they’ve turned on and it told me how much time I have of talktime it said I had 5 hours talktime so out of the box without even charging 5 hours of talktime so now it’s doing the voice it’s doing the voice pairing so what you can do is you don’t have to look at the instructions it’s asking me to press this headset button this is the headset call control button and it’s asking me to press it to start the voice guided pairing process so I press the button you can also see on the bottom you can see this right here says PLT that’s the play Tronics headset it says not paired it’s telling me if I have an iPhone to tap the button right now and of course it’s telling me to go through the different steps go it’s actually going step by step going to the settings going into the Bluetooth but I don’t need to do that so I’m going to skip that now it’s asking me to select the option here it asked me to connect okay so what it is done here is it voice guided me through the setup process on my iPhone and basically you press this this is the call answer button which I’ll pull it in so you can see a little better when you press this button it walks you through the steps so it told me to go into the settings go into bluetooth find the Plantronics it’s listed as at least on my iPhone is listed as PLT underscore m16 5 click on that connected and done the other nice thing is it says connected to device 1 and I also know that it will connect to two devices so I can actually connect to my iPad as well which I use for the total or take over phone number and I can actually pick up calls on either device ok so after some testing with the Plantronics mark you – I noticed that the the phone call sounded good at least on my earpiece when I was talking to people on their phone I had good audio quality in here listening to music wasn’t terrible considering you only have one earpiece but some people were saying that there was some scratchiness at least in the beginning of the conversation when when I first called people so there’s a little bit of a scratchiness and then taper down so that must be the the voice processing technology that they use to help cancel out some of the noise it seems to that people said that they could understand me pretty clear and it’s not a terrible terrible headset I’ve had people actually tell me it sounded better than my old pair of shoes they asked me if I was using a new pair so there is a difference in audio quality it is it’s not quite as good as actually holding your phone up to your head like like who does that anymore I don’t I don’t use it anyway so yeah they don’t sound terribly bad and of course you can also activate Siri with these headphones there’s a little touch call button here and you press and hold it in and it will do you the beeping sounds to activate Siri then you just tell Siri what you want it to do to hang up just press the button again and I’m going to pull this Bluetooth headset off which like I said feels very secure and I’m just going to show you up close that round circle that you see that is the call that is the call button on the side here you can see that there is a
switch and it’s that little piece of green that is the on/off slider and over here is a button which is a volume rocker and that is your volume the maximum volume was adequate for phone calls I wish it was a little bit louder but it’s not terrible considering you don’t want to have too much noise or too much volume blasting into your ear to make you deaf when you get older so recap very nice very light 7 grams you get three different ear jellies a small a medium and a large you also get this very cheap plastic e we call it an ear hanger it seems to do the job the audio quality isn’t terrible at least from the speaker into your ear that’s actually pretty decent considering the size of this device and people haven’t complained too bad on the call quality when I call them there are two microphones on here for noise cancellation and of course you get a seven hours of talk time and you get 11 hours of regular standby time I’m sorry 11 days of standby time and I believe it said a hundred and eighty days in steep sleep mode so I guess I will have to read the directions to see what deep sleep mode is I guess maybe that’s when you turn it the power off and leave it sit I would say definitely not there’s a lot better headphones out there yes I would definitely recommend these nerd recommended check them out give them a try.
