When it comes to phone headset manufacturers, Plantronics (News
) is definitely a household name. Nowhere is it more clear why this should be so than in the area of wireless, Bluetooth
headsets. The company has come out with some pretty innovative products in recent months—for busy professionals
, call centers
, and home users
Take the Voyager 510-USB Bluetooth headset, for example. This product, designed for on-the-go businesspeople, uses a USB Bluetooth adapter for instant, wireless access to softphones. This lets the user switch seamlessly between a softphone and a mobile phone.
A single headset that works with both a mobile phone and a softphone definitely is innovative. So much so, in fact, that Voyager 510 recently won an INTERNET TELEPHONY 2006 Product of the Year Award
