From the pioneers of the lightweight headset, the mobile headset, noise-canceling technology and the personal speakerphone, comes two new Bluetooth headsets. Plantronics recently launched the Voyager Legend and Marque 2 M165 Bluetooth headsets to the local market to further strengthen its line of consumer and commercial headsets.
First up is the feature-packed Voyager Legend made for businessmen on the go. It has a Smart Sensor technology that reacts as soon as your wear it so you don’t have to click anything when the phone rings. It even announces who’s calling so you don’t need to take out your phone from your purse or pocket, and just say “Answer” or “Ignore” to take or drop the call. It can also accept voice commands to check battery level, connection status, and more.
One thing special about the Voyager Legend is its triple-mic active digital signal processing that can cancel noise and wind for a clearer reception on the other end. The boom mic also ensures that your voice is the only thing being heard on the other end. It has multipoint technology too which allows you to pair it on two different phones, useful in today’s world where more people are using multiple handsets. It also has a water and sweat-resistant coating so you don’t have to worry about using it when its drizzling or touching it with wet hands.
The Plantronics Voyager Legend is already available and retails for Php4,900.
The Marque 2 M165 is an upgrade from the Marque M155 and is geared towards the casual mobile user. It has a smaller profile than the Voyager but lightweight and easier to use with less buttons to play with. Like the Voyager, it has multipoint technology for pairing with two different phones. The small size only allows for dual-microphone which is still effective in blocking background noise and minimize wind for clear conversations.
This phone doesn’t talk to you but it allows you to use voice command to answer a call for a truly hands-free use while driving. It also features Deep Sleep which extends the battery up to 180 days if it’s out of range of paired devices so you can just leave it in the car for long periods and still ready for use when you get back.
The Marque 2 M165 is already available and retails for just Php3,600.
