Free your hands from your smartphone
Control your phone or phablet while you juggle life with both hands. Toss those tangled earbuds and go wireless, using voice commands to ask Siri for advice, request reminders from Cortana, or hear directions from Google.
Sound your best in a noisy world
Provides the full HD Voice experience on wideband-enabled phones and networks. Be heard clearly with HD Voice and our signature noise and wind canceling technologies.
HEAR A FAMILIAR LANGUAGE
Choose English, Spanish, or French as the language you’ll hear whispering important status notifications. Hear when it’s time to recharge, reconnect a lost connection, and more.
Keep conversations within reach
Connect the Explorer 500 to the magnetic USB strap and loop it around your bag or key chain to keep your headset within easy reach. No need to hunt for a charging cable now that the strap is nearby.
