Plantronics unveils new headset


Plantronics has launched the Discovery 975 headset, the upgrade to the Discovery 925 headset.

The device comes with WindSmart technology to provide three layers of protection against wind noise, as well as Dual-mic AudioIQ technology to capture voice clearly and cancel background noise.

It comes with a carry case that recharges the earpiece and triples talk and standby time – the Discovery 975 comes with up to five hours of talktime and a week of standby charge from a single charge. There’s also a micro USB socket on the side of the case to charge it, as well as an LCD screen to inform the user of the remaining power in the headset and case.

Other features of note include voice prompts, which tells the user when they’re out of range or when the battery is low and three differently sized ear tips.

The Discovery 975 will begin shipping next week in the UK and will be available from Apple’s online and retail stores for £79.99. Other retailers will follow in the coming weeks.
