    Comparing the Voyager 815 with the Voyager 510 is like comparing an apple from a pineapple. Totally different in design and features. There was really no special feature with the 510 compared to the 815. Though they are both comfortable to use for longer period of time, the latter's control buttons are placed strategically that it is easier to control. With the "Slider" function, accepting calls and ending calls have never been easier.

    The Voyager 510 was my ever first Bluetooth Headset. Having owned quite a few, I would say, the latest Voyager models are much better in terms of compatability.

    Thanks for the quick answer! How does wind noise suppression compare between the 815 and 510?

    How has the test gone? I had a trusty 510 with the integrated winds sock and everyone seemed to like talking to me on it, even in airports. Now they sure knew I was on my Bluetooth headset but they did not ask me to get off of it because it was so bad.

    I replaced my 510 with and 815 and everyone is always asking me to get off of it and talk on the phone unless I am in a quiet room. What gives?

    IMHO if you cannot walk through an airport and talk to someone on a Bluetooth headset it is useless. Now I am not looking for it to completely block out those dam airport announcements, just work well enough that the other person can hear you and not have to make you get off your headset to talk.

    I also have the Voyager 510 and people are always telling me I sound like I'm on a landline! They cannot believe that during our whole conversation, they were talking to me via a BT.

    Voyager 510 is the best headset I've found in a long time!
