Legend Delivers Intuitive Wearable Technology with Exceptional Audio in a Sleeker, Smaller Design
London, UK - 18th September 2012 - As work and personal lives come together, the new Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) Voyager Legend is the ideal communication tool for life, work and play. With a blend of precisely tuned audio, Smart SensorTM technology and intuitive voice enabled controls, the Legend is Plantronics' most user friendly and best sounding headset.
The Voyager Legend is the next generation of Plantronics' award-winning Voyager® headset line and has three precisely tuned microphones and enhanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing) that optimize your voice and minimize noise caused by wind, movement, and background sounds. Industry-first Smart Sensor technology intuitively directs calls to your phone or headset and allows you to automatically answer by placing the headset on your ear. The Voyager Legend proactively delivers voice alerts to keep you informed of battery level, connection status and announces caller name. The headset also takes voice commands such as "answer" or "ignore" to keep you in control of your technology.
"Whether you are a mobile professional, commuter, or someone who needs to be connected to friends, family or work, the Voyager Legend simply delivers amazing audio quality in the most demanding environments," said Stuart Bradshaw, head of consumer marketing Europe and Africa at Plantronics. "From its unique Smart Sensor technology that relays information about call status to the voice commands, the Voyager Legend continues Plantronics legacy of exceptional communication technology and innovation."
Usability advances provide convenience and control with dedicated buttons for call answer/end, voice commands, power and mute. Optional accessories, including a battery-powered carrying case for charging on-the-go and a desktop charging stand for when you touch down, ensure your headset is ready for calls.
The Voyager Legend line will include a version designed for Unified Communications (UC) with accessories that make it simple to make and receive calls from your mobile phone or PC.
