Plantronics is well known for their high-quality, reliable headsets. Plantronics has been designing compact, functional headsets since 1961 when they worked with NASA to design a microphone for space communications. Neil Armstrong’s famous words during the first moon walk were transmitted through a Plantronics headset, and NASA continues to rely on Plantronics headsets to this day.
You don’t have to be an astronaut to benefit from the advances in technology made by Plantronics. Currently, there are two new, extraordinarily light headsets that can deliver wireless freedom from your desk up to 350 feet. DECT technology is used to deliver a wider range and less interference with WiFi devices.
