Plantronics Communication Tools Keep Mobile Professionals Connected Optimally

October 24, 2012

Plantronics (News - Alert) launched three new products that will enable flexible working options for workers whether they are in office or outside.


Mobile workers have to contend with noisy open office environments and unscheduled meetings on the go every day. In order to increase the efficiency of mobile solutions, Plantronics has introduced a new Bluetooth speakerphone, a crossover USB Bluetooth headset and the Voyager Legend UC headset.

“Work is something you do, not a place you go,” said Amy Huson, senior director of enterprise marketing at Plantronics. “In a typical week, I find myself working from home, the car, and office but I need to sound professional all the time. These new enterprise mobility products help people communicate effectively wherever the day takes them.”

In such a scenario, companies are required to equip their mobile professionals with solutions that enhance their communication capabilities where ever they are.

The Voyager Legend UC, which connects easily to a laptop, mobile phone or tablet, features Smart Sensor technology that responds when the headset is put on and connects a call automatically. The voice command button displays battery level and connection status. It comes with a portable charging case and a desktop charging stand besides also precision-tuned triple mics that cancel noise and wind ensuring clarity.

The second product is a crossover headset in the Blackwire Series which provides PC audio quality by connecting to a Bluetooth enabled phone or tablet. The Blackwire 700 series corded headset features Plantronics’ Smart Sensor technology. This can automatically pause music and connect a call. Users can now connect to both their PC and mobile in a simplified manner which prevents missing calls on a mobile while working on the computer, listening to music or making a softphone call.

The Calisto 620 wireless speakerphone is portable, compatible with laptop and smartphone and provides reliable seven-hour talk time.  The intelligent bi-directional microphone automatically activates that side of the microphone facing the speaker or the direction of the voice.

These new Plantronics suite of business mobility products promise to enhance communications for workers on the go.
