Plantronics has launched new next generation headsets in Malaysia to deliver a higher level of audio clarity and professional quality communication, said the technology solutions firm.
Speaking at the end of November 2012, Plantronics director of sales and marketing Alvin Kiew said the new Voyager Legend and Marque 2 headsets include sensors that react when you put the headset on, letting you quickly take a call without a click. "If you're already wearing it, Voyager Legend announces who is calling and waits for you to say 'Answer' or 'Ignore. Simply tap the voice command button and ask to check battery level, connection status, and more. Voyager Legend is the smartest Bluetooth headset available."
Kiew said that one of the biggest risks to the performance of electronic devices was exposure to moisture - including rain, humidity, sweat and accidental spills. "Voyager Legend is protected against damage from moisture with an invisible P2i coating on every surface of the product, causing liquid to bead up and run off the headset instead of permeating electrical components potentially leading to corrosion damage.
He said the invisible P2i coating, originally designed to treat soldiers' uniforms as protection from environmental and chemical hazards, has a thickness equivalent to one thousandth of a human hair and does not change the look or feel of Voyager LegendTM. Its ultra-thin size means it also does not affect electrical conductivity, so the entire product, inside and out, can be treated.
"As a companion for smartphone enthusiasts, Marque 2 is Plantronics' smallest and lightest weight headset, lets you listen to music or stream audio and Internet radio - all while managing calls without pressing buttons," said Kiew. "Despite its diminutive size at only seven grammes, the Marque 2 comes in stylish matte Black or White and features dual microphones, which provides clear and crisp call quality through noise and wind reduction."
The Plantronics Voyager Legend and Marque 2 are available in Malaysia from December 2012.
