Plantronics unveils Discovery 975 headset

Plantronics Discovery 975

Plantronics on Thursday introduced its newest Bluetooth headset, the Discovery 975. It will replace the current Discovery 925 when it launches and sports the same dual microphones and Plantronics' AudioIQ and WindSmart sound-enhancing and noise cancelling technologies. A newfound feature is the 975's storage case, which doubles as a portable charger for the headset and can extend it battery life from 5 hours to 15 hours. It sports an LCD screen that shows charge level of the headset and the case's own battery levels, as well as Bluetooth connection status.

Otherwise, there are grooved vents on the boom and acoustic fabrics shielding the microphones from wind noise. A 20-band equalizer works with AudioIQ to adjust incoming calls based on ambient noise levels for clear sound delivery. The Discovery 975 weighs 8 grams and has only two buttons, one for power and answering/ending calls while the other controls volume levels and mutes the microphones. Voice prompts warn users of low battery, mute and Bluetooth
connection statuses.

The Plantronics Discovery 975 is now available, priced at $130.
