In a press briefing this morning, Peter Petrides, National Retail Sales Manager of Plantronics Australia, said that the new Discovery 975 moves away from the conventional rectangular design and is aimed a consumers who want a lightweight headset that is packed with a lot of features and easy to use.
The Discover 975 picks up from where its predecessor left off, with the new device sporting improved noise cancellation and audio quality. It comes with two microphones that cancels background noise, reduces wind noise with its ‘WindSmart’ technology, and claims to have an adaptive 20-band equaliser that delivers rich, full voice.
The highlight of the Discovery 975 is its carrying case – it comes with an LCD screen that not only displays the earpiece charge level, but also displays the remaining battery life. Once the earpiece is docked, it automatically charges it and will provide users with an additional 10 hours of talk time.
“Consumers expect great outbound noise cancellation in a premium headset, without sacrificing usability, comfort, and quality. We’ve spent nearly five decades perfecting all aspects of headset design from inbound audio quality to fit. For customers seeking the perfect blend of innovative design and advanced audio technologies, the Discovery 975 is the solution,” said Petrides.
The Plantronics Discovery 975 will be available starting 1 April 2010 and through major telco stores and will have an RRP of $179.95.
