Plantronics today announced its Internet-optimized Voyager 510 Bluetooth headset solution featuring a plug-and-play USB Bluetooth voice adapter. “Skype for Business coupled with our new Bluetooth headset is the ultimate tool for small businesses,” commented Philip Vanhoutte, EMEA Managing Director, Plantronics. “You no longer need to carry a multitude of devices. Our Voyager 510 Bluetooth headset solution is multipoint, allowing customers to switch seamlessly between mobile phone and Internet calls.”
I checked the Plantronics website and didn’t see anything about this Internet-Optimized headset, although I did find this:
“Plantronics today announced two new Bluetooth® headsets, the Plantronics Discovery™ 645 and Voyager 510 with WindSmart®, that incorporate new technologies for excellent audio clarity during conversations. The Voyager 510 is the first Bluetooth headset on the market to include both a noise-canceling microphone and wind-reduction technology for brilliant sound in windy environments. The Discovery 645 includes a digital signal processing (DSP) chip to actively reduce background noise when talking.”
Very interesting. Two companies, talking about the same product, but in different ways.
I’ll await clarification from Plantronics on these products. No information is available on their website as of yet.
For information on the Plantronics Voyager 510, you can always visit the Telephone Magic website.
GN Netcom makes a similar product – the GN 6210 wireless headset. It too features the ability to go between your mobile headset and your desk phone.
Gotta love all this convergence…
