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.

Pick this over Jawbone Era. I previously owned a Jawbone Era and will compare these two items.
Angsty younger sibling of the M155 I used to buy M155s in bulk because I would always lose them or do something stupid like get in this shower with the thing still on; this is the successor to my beloved M155.
Nice headset, voice commands can be a bit difficult I’ve had a bunch of headsets from Plantronics (including the Voyager Pro and Legend), Jawbone, Blueant and Motorola over the past decade or so, and this one is probably the best I’ve tried overall. It is relatively small, is lightweight and is very comfortable (yeah, I really do forget I have it on my ear) and sound quality is excellent.
