Plantronics Intros Voyager PRO UC Headset

By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

Plantronics has introduced the Voyager PRO UC headset, a new addition to its growing portfolio of wireless headsets for unified communications.

Voyager PRO UC is powered by the company’s award-winning Voyager PRO Bluetooth and comes with a plug-and-play Bluetooth USB adapter to deliver richer wideband audio on softphones, along with Voyager PRO's superior noise and wind cancellation.

The plug-and-play Bluetooth USB adapter helps in reducing Help Desk support costs by eliminating the cumbersome software setup processes. It also supports multipoint technology that allows users to switch between their mobile phone calls and PC calls with the touch of a button. Users can insert the adapter into their PC and can start talking immediately.

Plantronics (News - Alert) Voyager PRO UC features three layers of WindSmart technology and dual external stainless steel microphone screens and acoustic fabrics that surround the microphones provide substantial physical barriers to wind noise. In addition, the new headset offers high-end audio with wideband calling through softphone applications from providers, including Avaya, Cisco (News - Alert), IBM, and Microsoft, and other popular services, such as Google Talk and Skype.

"The Voyager PRO UC headset was designed for the growing number of mobile professionals who rely on unified communications to stay connected," said Gunjan Bhow, vice president and general manager of unified communications at Plantronics, in a release. "Because the headset works with both UC applications and mobile phones, mobile professionals no longer need to juggle multiple headsets. They can get superior audio quality with one device."

What’s more, Voyager PRO UC also includes the PerSono Suite software that provides call answer/end, volume and mute with supported softphones and manages PC audio, such as music, unified messaging and webinars. Users can easily personalize the system with choice of ring tones, volume levels, and media management, such as pausing music when taking a call using the call setting capabilities from PerSona Suite.

The new Plantronics Voyager PRO UC is available through authorized resellers and office supply retailers such as Staples.com and OfficeDepot.com with a retail price of $199.95.
