VXi BlueParrott Reveal Pro Bluetooth Noise-Cancelling Headset Review

As a leading manufacturer of headsets for contact centers and offices, VXi has extensive experience when it comes to helping people stay connected and productive while on the go. Their latest product, VXi BlueParrott Reveal Pro is a stylish Bluetooth headset that stands out with its noise-cancelling functionality, which promises crystal-clear voice reproduction even in loud environments. But with a high-end feature comes a high-end price tag, and we are more than curious to find out whether the headset is worth the cost.

Build and Design

At just 0.58 oz., the VXi BlueParrott Reveal Pro is among the lightest Bluetooth headsets on the market. Luckily, the low weight was achieved more with clever engineering and use of expensive materials, rather than by sacrificing the build quality. Every aspect of the device, including the extendable microphone, seems highly rugged and able to withstand demanding daily use.

Located on the top side of the Reveal Pro are several silver buttons. Among them is a programmable Parrott Button, which can be programmed by smartphone using the BlueParrott app. You can set it to perform a variety of useful functions, including push-to-talk, speed dial, and mute.

But that’s only scratching the surface of what the app can do. Using the SMS Reader function, you can have the app to read text messages through your BlueParrott headset, or you can perform a sound check to fine-tune how others hear you before you make a phone call.

The remaining buttons on the devices are used to turn it on and off, answer and end phone calls, and to control the volume. Pairing instructions are included in the BlueParrott app, but since the Reveal Pro comes with Near Field Communication (NFC) instant pairing, you will hardly need them at all.

You can expect to get a little over 7 hours of talk time on a single charge and around 5 days of standby time. Charging the Reveal Pro from 0 percent to 100 percent takes roughly 90 minutes.

Sound Quality

The Reveal Pro uses the latest Bluetooth technology to transmit crystal-clear voice in high-definition quality. The extending microphone can be adjusted to best fit the size and shape of your head, so that the other party can hear you loud and clear.

If you happen to find yourself in a loud environment, the Extreme Noise Suppression technology takes over, blocking over 90% of background noise, according to VXi’s marketing claims. The good news is that the claims are, indeed, true and we never experienced any issues as far as the voice clarity is concerned.

The VXi BlueParrott Reveal Pro Bluetooth headset has a range of up to 300 feet, allowing you to leave your smartphone on the desk while you walk around the office.

What’s in the Box?

Included with the headset are earhooks and eartips of different sizes, allowing you to find the right fit and achieve maximum comfort.

Verdict

VXi easily managed to justify the somewhat high price of the BlueParrott Reveal Pro, with an assortment of clever features, fantastic Android app, and above all, crystal-clear voice reproduction. As such, the VXi BlueParrott Reveal Pro Bluetooth can easily be recommended to anyone looking for a way how to be more productive on the go.
