Plantronics is introducing the Pulsar(R) 260 Stereo Bluetooth(R) Headset. If you want to see one in person check it out at CTIA Wireless 2007 (Plantronics Booth #1013, Hall A2).
The Pulsar(r) 260 uses (A2DP) Advanced Audio Distribution Profile. This is a clever strategy because mobile phones featuring the A2DP stereo profile are expected to rise significantly in the next year.
“As technologies converge and more mobile phones are used as multimedia devices, it is increasingly important that stereo headsets offer not only superb sound quality but voice functionality,” added Niemi. “The Pulsar 260 adds a new dimension to stereo Bluetooth choice by offering a new wearing style and addressing the needs of today’s consumer.”
Unlike many Bluetooth Headsets that are small, in-the-ear mono devices, the Pulsar(R) 260 is a lightweight pendant-plus-earphones design. The control pendant clips easily to pockets, lapels or shoulder straps. The central control panel has been designed to intuitively navigate through track selections and control the volume without needing to ever touch your phone. For me, one of the most important features of a headset is how it feels in my ear. The Pulsar 260’s earbuds are not only noise-isolating, they are made of soft silicone gel so the contoured tips are very secure. I hate feeling like my headset might fall out at any moment. And it’s certainly annoying if that happens right in the middle of a conversation. And these gel tips are meticulously engineered to remain comfortable over time. There’s nothing more annoying than my earplugs irritating my ears. I really need to feel like they are just “floating” in my ears with no annoying pulling sensation. And considering Plantronics reputation one can be assured of high quality, wireless stereo sound.
