Plantronics M55 Bluetooth Headset (Refurbished)
This slim headset sits in your ear unobtrusively, ready to help you take calls and listen to music without getting in the way.
Take calls without touching a screen, pressing a button, or talking to Gertie the 1950s switchboard operator thanks to the M55’s simple audio functions. When a call comes in, just say “answer” and get to talking. The device’s pleasant female voice also whispers important status items such as talk time and battery level to keep your eyes on what’s most important.
Stays Charged for Months
The M55’s built-in rechargeable battery is powerful enough to fuel marathon conversations lasting up to 11 hours. But when it’s time to put the headset down—such as when you’re on vacation or you’ve switched up your commute—the battery will be ready for you when you come back. The M55’s DeepSleep power-saving mode kicks in when the headset is away from your phone for more than 90 minutes, helping the battery’s charge last for up to five months.
Not Just for Phone Calls
Between conversations, the M55 can help you listen to music, follow driving directions, and hear video soundtracks hands-free. The headset’s Bluetooth 3.0 technology supports A2DP, which enables stereo audio streaming for higher quality music and sound.

In 1969, when Neil Armstrong bounded off Apollo 11 onto the moon and said, “That’s one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind,” he was using a Plantronics headset. Remarkably, Plantronics had been formed less than a decade earlier by two airline pilots dissatisfied with their flight headsets. The lightweight models they devised, and their subsequent innovations, soon were in wide use by pilots, call centers, gamers, and even executives who didn’t want to hold a phone while practicing on the in-office putting green. Today, headsets remain the main focus of Plantronics’ work, especially Bluetooth ones; the company lays claim to helping bring Bluetooth to popularity with its Discovery 640 headsets line.
