New Mobility Products for Business Professionals Work Across Mobile Phones, Laptops and Tablets
Santa Cruz, Calif. – October 22, 2012 – In a rush, jumping from a mobile call to a webinar and wish you could use one audio device? Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) has you covered with the launch of three products designed for different flavors of flexible working. From noisy open office environments to impromptu meetings on the go there’s a greater need for mobility throughout the day. Plantronics’ new line-up includes a Bluetooth® speakerphone, a crossover USB Bluetooth headset and the award-winning Voyager Legend™ UC headset.
“For many professionals, conducting business from a cubicle or closed office environment has become a thing of the past. Work has become much more about what someone does and a lot less about where they do it,” said Rob Arnold, Senior Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “ With that said, it’s important for companies to equip their mobile professionals with the latest solutions that not only give them the flexibility to communicate well regardless of where they are, but that also make the user experience as intuitive as possible, and that’s something Plantronics has down to a science.”
Plantronics suite of business mobility products include:
Voyager Legend UC – The Next Generation of an Iconic Communications Device
Plantronics Voyager Legend UC is the award-winning Voyager family’s latest solution which connects to a laptop, mobile phone or tablet. This headset understands how and when you want to talk, with industry-first Smart Sensor™ technology that reacts when you put the headset on, letting you quickly take a call without a click. Tapping the voice command button provides battery level, connection status, and more. A portable charging case and a desktop charging stand mean that it’s always ready, while precision-tuned triple mics cancel noise and wind.

Blackwire® Series – The Crossover Headset Where Corded Reliability Meets Wireless Flexibility
This versatile headset goes beyond providing outstanding PC audio quality by also connecting to a Bluetooth enabled phone or tablet. The Blackwire 700 series is the first corded headset to feature Plantronics’ Smart Sensor technology, which tells the headset when it is being worn so it can pause music and route calls intuitively. A detachable cable and integrated clothing clip allow you to take your mobile call to-go with up to 10 hours of talk time. For more information, visit www.plantronics.com/product/blackwire-700
