SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2008

Review of the week was ASUS’ Eee Top ET1602 touchscreen nettop, which proved itself quite capable of taking on any doubts over an Atom-based PC and throwing them out.  It’s certainly left us excited about next-year’s models, which are meant to have bigger displays and improved media capabilities.  Meanwhile we’re still playing with Nokia’s 5800 XpressMusic Tube; check out our first impressions.


Plantronics Discovery 925 Giveaway!

Remember the Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth Headset?  Back in our review we praised its audio quality, specification and design; in fact the only frustrating thing was the price.  Now Plantronics have offered us not one, but six Discovery 925 headsets to give away as part of their Laws of Style promotion.  It’s a prize package worth almost $900, and one lucky SlashGear reader will be walking away with it.

Find out how to win after the cut!


Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth Headset reviewed

So while Vincent was at CTIA he managed to pick up one Plantronics’ latest headsets, the fashionable Discovery 925 that we wrote about earlier this week. Not only did we get his review of the product, some more shots, and even a video review, but we got some more info too.


Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth headset – for the fashion conscious talkers

News Flash! Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth headset: Video Review – PHONE Magazine

Featuring Plantronics’ AudioIQ technology for clear calls, their VFrame structure, and an overall design more reminiscent of a piece of jewelry than that of a Bluetooth headset, this thing looks amazing. Even better yet, the little case that comes with it, isn’t just a case.


Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth hands-free has stereo as an option

Plantronics have realised that not only do you have two ears but you like to use them; how else could you explain their latest Bluetooth hands-free headset, the Voyager 855, which ostensibly looks like a normal cellphone accessory but confuses things by adding a second earpiece on a detachable cord sprouting from the ear hook. Thanks to good old A2DP wireless stereo and some nifty design you can be enjoying your music and easily segue to an incoming call without juggling handsets or fumbling buttons.


Plantronics Pulsar 260 Stereo Bluetooth Headset

So Kevin Geter over at ChipChick got one of these headsets for review and put it through its paces. He loved it, the box apparently included the actual USB receiver, the stereo headphones, a lanyard, several earpieces for the headphones, a line out cable, a Quick Start Guide, and the AC charger.

Your choices for positioning the Bluetooth receiver were a) use the attached [but removable] belt clip or, b) use the included lanyard and hang it around your neck. Pairing the receiver was apparently easy and the headphones offered up superb sound.


Plantronics Launches CS70N Wireless Headset System with Noise-Canceling Technology

Today, Plantronics announced the availability of its third-generation professional headset solution, the CS70N Wireless Headset System.

The CS70N is the perfect combination of premium audio performance, style and comfort. It has been optimized for both traditional and IP telephony phones and provides office professionals with excellent hands-free mobility for increased accessibility and efficiency at work.


Plantronics weaves Bluetooth into Quiksilver & Roxy

Last year Krunker reviewed a jacket that used Eleksen’s fabric-keyboard technology to put iPod controls on your sleeve.  Now they came to the conclusion that it was a great thing (if you often listen to your iPod while outside), but perhaps Plantronics latest endeavour with Quiksilver and Roxy to put Bluetooth-enabled headsets and headphones into a range of jackets and helmets. 

Now, instead of running cables round a variety of rubber gussets (oh how I love that word!), drop your Bluetooth-equipped cellphone, DAP or iPod-with-Bluetooth-dongle into your pocket and relax in the knowledge that you’re connected.  Both mens and womens ranges will be available, with prices starting from $249.95 for helmets and $340 for jackets.


CES 2007: Plantronics announces new Discovery 665 Bluetooth Headset

The new Discovery 665 Bluetooth headset featuring AudioIQ – the industry’s first DSP technology to optimize audio levels for you and the person you’re talking to. The AudioIQ clarifies incoming speech and reduces outgoing background noise by up to 50%. Another cool features include Plantronics’ new QuickPair technology, which simplifies the Bluetooth setup process for consumer by automatically initiating pairing mode (when powered) if no other device history is present. The headset is ready to go once it’s paired successfully; otherwise it shuts off after 10 minutes if the paring was unsuccessful.

The packaging comes with a convenient charging and storage system targeted for use in the car. There are visual call indicator and low battery indicator. It’s ultra-light, sophisticated design and customizable eartips for complete wearing comfort.

The Plantronics Discovery 665 will be available for $149.95 (msrp) at major retailers and in February 2007.
NOTE: Live product shots coming later today.
