Correct me if I'm wrong, but VoIP uses UDP connection and other applications mostly use TCP connection. And as far as I know, UDP doesn't have congestion control as TCP so UDP will crowd out TCP traffic which means, that VoIP will always have priority, as TCP connection will lower its transmission rates. In that case you don't really need to use QOS.
