USB headset unlike any other. Plantronics.

Techstination feature for Wednesday, June 1, 2011

A USB headset unlike any other.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Plantronics has long been known for innovative communications technology.   Now the company has taken its wireless computer headset know-how and merged it with DECT technology, commonly used in cordless phones.   The result is the Savi 440.   Senior global product manager Beau Wilson…

“We’re the first ones to actually bring a portable DECT solution to the marketplace for communications.  And with the 440, we’re bringing the lightest DECT headset available in the market.  It’s a featherweight 21 grams.  But even with the light weight, we are able to deliver unlimited talk time with a user hot swappable battery.”

The technology means users will have a wireless range of about 300 feet.   The suggested price is about 280 dollars.   Plantronics has a wide range of other solutions at varying prices.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
