Plantronics Review and Contest Information to win $1000 Gas Card

December 3, 2009

Looking for a sleek, stylish, elegant bluetooth headset but not willing to move away from the functionality and new technology? Plantronics has done just that with their Discovery 975 headset.

The Plantronics Discovery 975 has dual mic Audio IC and windsmart technology to keep everything clear for you when it matters most. Dual-mic Audio picks up your voice and at the same time eliminates background noises without taking away from the natural sound of your voice. Windsmart technology is just that, Wind Smart. Three layers of WindSmart protection keeps unwanted wind noise from interfering with your calls. Grooved vents in the earpiece’s design deflect the wind, a layer of acoustic fabric blocks the wind, and electronic filters remove the wind noise, keeping your calls clear and wind-free.
A strikingly minimalist design defines the Discovery 975. From the subtle white indicator light that just flashes once when the earpiece is powered on, to the one-touch button that gives you control over powering it and answering/ending calls. A dedicated volume control doubles as a mute button for even more convenience.

In the box with the Descovery 975, PLantronics has included small, medium and large ear tips together with a leather carrying case that doubles as a mobile charger. The Discovery 975 alone is rated for up to 5hrs talk time or 1 week standby, paired with the case that has its own rechargeable battery, which has a built in charger to top up the Discovery 975 up to three times. The case even lights up and flashes when a call comes in and has a batter status indicator on it for the case and another that becomes visible once the Discovery 975 is placed in it.

While all this is great in itself, i’m sure the biggest questions anyone would have are. Whats the sound/call quality like? Is it comfortable to wear? The answers are. Call quality is superb, wind is blocked out and a great majority of background noise is eliminated or at least diminished, loud and constant background noise still leaks through somewhat but overall the call quality is very acceptable. Comfortability is also not compromised here with the different sizes of patented gel eartips and the light weight of the unit you hardly even know it’s there, however I would have liked to have seen an earhook, with it being so comfortable and light if you were a little distracted you may not notice that it’s fallen out before it’s too late and with four kids and constant distraction that is a worry I do have.

Overall the Plantronics Discovery 975 is an all around great headset for anyone looking for one and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good headset at an afforadable price.

Go to the Plantronics website and look at the Where to Buy section to see where you can buy this headset online or enter you zip code to see where you can buy it locally. The Discovery 975 costs $129.99 and is well worth every cent.
