Plantronics Introduces a Headset So Smart, It Self-Hibernates
DEBUTS THE FIRST HEADSET WITH UP TO FIVE MONTHS DEEPSLEEP BATTERY LIFE
IFA, Berlin, Germany – 31th August 2012 - For those who want their headset to be ready at a moment’s notice, Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) today announced the M25™ and M55™ Bluetooth headsets featuring Plantronics longest battery readiness of up to five months. No longer will a dead battery prevent you from making the most of your Bluetooth® headset or from following hands-free and distracted driving laws.
The M25 and M55 headsets feature Plantronics’ new DeepSleep™ mode that lets the headset stay charged for up to five months, so it’s ready when you want to hear music, listen to podcasts or simply place and take calls. DeepSleep technology activates when the headset is away from your phone for more than 90 minutes. When the phone and headset are back in range, you just tap the Call button to “wake” the headset up. This feature is ideal for users that often leave their headset in the car and ensures that the device is ready when they are.
Stuart Bradshaw, E&A consumer marketing manager at Plantronics said, “The M25 and M55 deliver on Plantronics’ Simply Smarter Communication brand promise. The built-in intelligence surrounding power-management makes the M25 and M55 headsets great for use in the car or around the house. It’s charged and ready when you are.”
The M55 also includes one year free access to Plantronics Vocalyst® voice and text service and the ability to take or dismiss calls simply by saying “Answer” or “Ignore”.
