PRESS RELEASE

Connects All your devices, reduces noise and is voice activated

London, UK - 12th November 2012 - Introduce your brand new Apple iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy SIII to its perfect companion, the Marque 2, Plantronics' smallest and lightest Bluetooth headset, weighing in at just seven grams. Stylish and smart, with the Marque 2 you can listen to music or stream GPS direction from the new Maps app on Apple iOS6, all while managing calls without pressing buttons - just say "Answer" or "Ignore." Dual microphones reduce noise and wind for clear and crisp call quality or chatting with Siri.

The Marque 2's new DeepSleepTM power-saving mode means it is always ready when you are with up to seven hours of talk time, 11 days of standby or 180 days in hibernation mode.  For added convenience there is even a dual charger for simultaneously charging your headset and phone from either your computer or car, and an on-screen battery meter on your iPhone or Android smartphone.

Stuart Bradshaw, Head of Consumer Marketing Europe & Africa at Plantronics said, "The Marque 2 is perfect for those who want a light and discrete headset that is the perfect partner for their new Apple iPhone or Android device. It is stylish, sleek and easy to stream music and listen to podcasts. With the new DeepSleep technology, there is no need to carry around a bulky charger, just slip the wireless headset on and off you go."

Also available with the Marque 2 is Plantronics' new Find MyHeadset Android application, a free app that allows you to find your missing Plantronics headset fast. Regardless of whether the headset is on or off, charged or not, recently missing, or lost for weeks, Find MyHeadsetTM offers people two unique ways to find their Plantronics device. Send a Tone plays a tone on any powered on and connected Plantronics headset that enables the customer to hear where their device is hiding. The BackTrackTM feature displays the date, time and Google-mapped location of the last several headset events recorded by the phone. Customers can retrace their steps to remember the last location where they used their headset.

Key Features include:

  • Dual microphones enhance noise reduction
  • DeepSleep mode that extends battery life for up to 180 days
  • Just say "Answer" or "Ignore" to handle your calls
  • Combination 2-in-1 charging kit charges your headset and phone simultaneously from your computer or car (car charger also included)
  • Universal-fit gel eartip conforms to all ear shapes
  • Use your headset to listen to music, movies, Internet radio, and GPS
  • Lightweight, compact design, weighing 7 grams
  • Find MyHeadset app for Android 2.3 and above, will help you find your headset when you have misplaced it
  • Up to 7 hours of talk time, 11 days of standby or 180 days in DeepSleep hibernation mode
