The Voyager 510-USB is also compatible with most popular consumer Internet telephony services, including AOL, MSN and Yahoo!.

The system comes with a desktop charging stand, USB charging cable, three-foot USB extension cable and AC charger. The Voyager 510 headset features include:

  • Noise-canceling microphone and wind-reduction technology for brilliant sound in indoor and outdoor environments
