Can you help me I just upgrade the firmware, but still the problem remains.

I took the advice of those that review and bought two of these units. One formy wife and one for me. When it works it's great. Then it just doesn't. (Apple 6 by the way) It will start to call and you can hear siri and then you have to pick up your phone. It shows it's still paired with blue tooth but it just doesn't work. We are both at our wits ends. Is there a fix for this or did I just waste money because of our apple phones?

I have a similar problem with one of the units I got, if you download the PLT hub app and try disabling "On ear detection", you lose a heap of the nice features but that got one of mine working.

My voyger legend is not charging up to more than 5 hrs. ——— Headset Answers replied: The Voyager battery is not replaceable and does degrade over time. I would recommend reaching out to wherever you purchased it from and inquiring about a warranty from them. Most Plantronics units come with a 1 year warranty and if it is within that period you may be able to get a replacement.

Solved: Plantronics Voyager Legend fixes wind noise issues with firmware update
Yes, I’m still that jackass who walks around with a bluetooth headset on his ear .
After more than a year using the Voyager Legend bluetooth headset from Plantronics, I still love it. Between its ability to connect with my phone and my laptopt simultaneously and the fast handoffs with the phone, I find it one of the most useful devices I own. I spend a lot of my time at work talking on the phone (such is the life of a client-facing technologist), and I also listen to a lot of NPR podcasts, so you can almost always find me with the thing stuck in my ear. I’ve even convinced my wife and sister-in-law to get themselves one.
I’ve had just one complaint… the wind noise. The headset has great audio quality and picks up my voice extremely well, but it turns out that it is incredibly sensitive to wind.
I remember the first few times I ran in to it. I had to join a conference call while out of the office, so I was in the entryway of a building. It was sunny and I stepped outside as the call continued. Then, people began to complain that someone was picking up wind noise, and would whoever it was please mute their phone. I couldn’t hear any noise, and there was no breeze, so I assumed at first that it wasn’t coming from me.
The boom microphone is so sensitive to your voice that it picks up even the slightest breeze and transmits a loud “rushing sound” to whomever you are talking to, but you can’t hear it. You can’t even feel any breeze and it still somehow picks it up. I looked a bit online and found other people complaining about the problem, but no fixes.
So, it has been great for listening to podcasts outdoors, but not talking. And I have had some pretty laughable attempts as I walked to my car to try to get Siri to send a text message to my wife to let her know I was on my way home. I’d say the problems were 25% Siri and 75% wind noise from the headset confusing her.
Then a few weeks ago, I decided to check for a firmware update for the headset and noticed this very interesting item among the varies entries in the release notes for version 93, released last Fall :
4x-improved wind noise reduction
Hmm, that sounded promising. The wind noise problems were so bad that I didn’t think 4x was likely to make enough a dent, but I figured it was worth a shot. I upgraded the firmware and took it for a spin outside.
It turns out that 4x is more like 4000x. The wind noise reduction is excellent. Over the past few weeks, I have made phone calls in heavy wind and even blowing rain storm. No wind noise at all. (Fun tip – if you want to test your microphone quality for things like clarity or wind noise, leave yourself a voicemail and then play it back).
It kind of blows my eye that they are able to pack so much signal processing power into the tiny piece of electronics that I can hang on my ear. I’m amazed that such a serious wind problem can be corrected with a firmware update.
So, if you have a Plantronics Voyager Legend and are having wind noise issues, go update the firmware.

4 responses to solved: plantronics voyager legend fixes wind noise issues with firmware update.
I have installed the latest update, however, the disturbance due to wind coming from a ceiling fan is not cancelled at all when a person sits under it with Voyager Legend. Requires immediate software update if it can solve the problem.
I am also experiencing similar issues with the headset wind and surrounding disturbance is killing the voice call. Can anyone help me to fix this. My headset updated to latest version of firmware 106 still problem persist. Appreciate any help or assistance to fix this problem or should I revert back to old version???
I tried to reset BT in my phone and looks like the disturbance has gone. Will have to monitor the device for some time before jumping to any conclusion. Plantronics FW 106
We are having problems with ours charging. Worked good the first day for about 4 hrs then never could get it to stay charged long.

connection problems with plantronics voyager legend bluetooth headset
When using my Plantronics Voyager Legend headset with iPhone 6 it sometimes will default back to the iPhone microphone during a conversation then back to the Voyager. I have two Voyager headsets and both act the same. Spoke with Plantronics tech and he said the problem is with the iPhone. I have tried deleting the headsets and pairing again, but still the same issues.
iPhone 6, iOS 12

- Iphone 13 and Plantronics Voyager Legend not working together. I’ve recently upgraded to an iPhone 13, and my Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth headset is not discoverable in the Bluetooth settings. The same headset worked fine with my previous iPhone10R and only since upgrading to iPhone 13 has this problem arisen. Any help is much appreciated. 446 2
- Bluetooth won't stay connected Why is my Plantronic's Headset not staying connected?? I can be on a call using my headset and a call waiting call come in... disconnect from the first call to switch over and the headset disconnects. It will not reconnect unless I turn off bluetooth on the phone, then restart. Even then sometimes I have to turn the headset off and back on. From one call to the next on a $1,000 phone seems ridiculous!! I've tried this with an older bluetooth headset as well, with the same results. 287 1
- use another brand headset bluetooth after updating to ios 16 or 16 or above, I can no longer use the bluetooth headset as before because I find that the sound from the game is intermittent and unstable in terms of connection 140 1
