It’s no secret that Jai and I travel a lot. As I write this, we are packing and making house sitting arrangements as we prepare to leave on a week-long road trip. I’ve been mapping out locations along our route where we can get stop and get supplies as needed, such as Pilot Flying J, a popular spot for weary road warriors to stop, shop, get a snack and even take a shower or use the wifi. And it’s not just food: Pilot Flying J also has a surprising variety of electronics available for purchase, perfect to address tech needs on the road or even as a last-minute gift. You DID remember that Father’s Day is this Sunday, right? Well, if not, Pilot Flying J is the perfect place to stop en route to dad’s house. 😉
This week, we received one of their top Father’s Day Gift Picks to test out, the Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Wireless Headset with Charging Case. Jai loves bluetooth headsets for listening to podcasts, so he was excited to give this a try. Right out of the gate, I can tell you that this headset is perfect for a traveler. Why? Because it’s super durable!
On the first day that Jai tested this out, we went down to the beach to go jogging. Once we got back, he realized that he didn’t know where the headset was. The next day, he found it outside in the driveway, where it had been overnight. While it was out there, we had one of the heaviest hailstorms I’ve seen in a long time, and in addition to this, Jai had gone out and moved the car before he noticed the headset laying there. To quote him, “It doesn’t look like I ran over it, but I can’t be sure.” And after all this, the headset is in 100% pristine condition!! I certainly don’t recommend leaving it outside in the hail or running over it with your car, but I feel that if it can withstand these things, it should be very durable during standard travel. 😉
In addition to being sturdy, here are some other features that Jai loves on the Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Wireless Headset:
- Easy to reverse and place on whichever ear you like; comfortable to wear for a pretty long time.
- Very clear sound.
- Has a button built in that gives you an update to tell you how much more talk time you have on it, and which device it’s connected to.
- Has another button that will pause and restart whatever you are listening to.
- The headset automatically pauses when you take it off your ear, and resumes when you put back on.
This headset would be a fantastic gift for any guy on the go, and right now, you can get it for $99.99 at Pilot Flying J after a $30 mail-in rebate. Get dad a last-minute gift that he’ll love!
