Making a Better Bluetooth Headset... Plantronics

Techstination feature for Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Making a better Bluetooth headset. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Some people like Bluetooth earpieces ....some don't. Often that's because many of them aren't very comfortable. Plantronics has made some significant improvements with the Discovery 975. The inner gel earpiece is designed for a more comfortable fit...and it comes with a small case that contains its own rechargeable battery. Senior product manager Greg Miller...

"We've put an LCD display on the charging case and it now actually shows the battery level of the headset as well as the rechargeable battery in the charging case. We've also gone to a different battery chemistry which will give you three full charges from the charging case."

What has attracted many to the Discovery 975 and its predecessor...the the stylish design. The price...about 130 dollars. There is a price for style and better technology. You can find us with archives, interviews and I'm Fred Fishkin
