Plantronics Inc. introduced Wednesday the Pulsar 590, a Bluetooth stereo headset that lets users listen wirelessly to music and movies and switch to mobile phone calls with the single touch of a button.
Available with a universal Bluetooth audio adapter, the Pulsar 590 provides wireless compatibility for any device with a headphone jack, such as laptops, home stereos, MP3 players, including iPods, and multimedia devices, such as Sony PSP.
The Pulsar 590 uses multipoint technology to function as both a stereo headset for hi-fi listening, as well as a communications headset for use with mobile phones and other voice-enabled devices. The headset includes a telescopic voice tube with an omni-directional microphone for clear voice communications.
The Pulsar 590 has a familiar headband wearing style with pivoting ear cushions that provide all-day wearing comfort. The portable, lightweight headset features a foldable design for compact charging and travel storage and ships with a full range of accessories, including a desktop charging stand, AC charger, USB charging cable, in-flight cable and travel case. The in-flight cable allows the headset to be used with the Bluetooth radio disabled, a requirement for most airline travel.
The Pulsar 590 will be available this fall for US$149.99 and $199.99 with universal adapter.
