New Plantronics Headsets Make Communication More Effective and Stylish

December 07, 2012

New Marque 2 headset, improved BackBeat GO, and P2i technology enhance Plantronics’ mobility line‐up

Plantronics today announced the addition of two Bluetooth headsets, with the launch of the Marque 2TM M165 headset and the reintroduction of the BackBeat GO® headset, now available in white. These additions are designed to deliver the most reliable, convenient and innovative products Plantronics can offer.

Marque 2™ (M165) Headset

Marque 2, Plantronics’ smallest and most lightweight headset, is the perfect companion for smartphone enthusiasts. It lets you listen to music or stream audio and Internet radio, all while managing calls without pressing buttons; users are able to simply say “Answer” or “Ignore”. Dual microphones reduce noise and wind for clear and crisp call quality. The Marque 2 features the new DeepSleep™ power‐saving mode ensuring that the headset is always ready when you are. The headset also has up to 11 hours of talk time, 16 hours of standby or 150 days in hibernation mode. You can enhance the Marque 2 experience even further by using the free MyHeadset app.

BackBeat GO® Wireless Earbuds

BackBeat GO, Plantronics’ popular wireless earbuds for music, multimedia, and more, has undergone several enhancements to give consumers an even better user experience. Now also available in white, the latest BackBeat GO boasts rich stereo sound, noise reduction technology for improved call clarity, and inline controls that allows users to quickly and easily take calls, skip tracks and adjust volume in any situation. The enhanced BackBeat GO is even more reliable now, with the inclusion of exclusive P2i nano‐coating technology, protecting the earbuds from sweat and other moisture damage. Other enhanced features include: increased maximum volume, up to eight device memory and pre‐installed ear stabilisers.

P2i Nano‐Coating Technology

Plantronics has entered into an exclusive partnership with P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano‐coating technology. P2i’s innovative technology will be used on select Plantronics devices, making them even more reliable and providing significant protection against damage from moisture. The invisible P2i coating has a thickness equivalent to one thousandth of a human hair, and does not change the look or feel of the Plantronics products. Its ultra‐thin size means it also does not affect electrical conductivity, ensuring that the product can be treated, inside and out. The new award-winning Voyager Legend™ and BackBeat GO headsets, including the new white BackBeat GO headset, include P2i’s nano‐coating.

“Australians are very active and always on the go, so moisture shouldn’t alter the performance of their headset. As experts in wearable technology, Plantronics recognises that headsets should operate whatever the environment, so this partnership with P2i was a natural choice,” said Peter Petrides, National Sales Manager, Plantronics Australia & New Zealand.

“We’re excited to introduce P2i’s nano‐coating to the Voyager Legend and BackBeat GO headsets, including the new white BackBeat GO headset. With the P2i coating, any liquid that lands on these devices will simply bead up and run off the headset, instead of permeating electrical components and potentially causing corrosion damage.”

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY

The Marque 2 and the enhanced BackBeat GO headset (with P2i nano‐coating technology) are available now, priced at AU$79.00 and AU$119.00 respectively. For a full list of retailers please visit www.plantronics.com.au.

ABOUT P2I TECHNOLOGY

P2i’s technology is a revolutionary liquid repellent nano‐coating for electronics. It provides unbeatable protection against corrosion damage, reducing warranty failure and repair costs and ultimately increasing user confidence. The technology is applied using a special pulsed ionised gas (plasma), which is created within a vacuum chamber, to attach a nanoscopic polymer layer – one thousand times thinner than a human hair – to the electronic device. This dramatically lowers the product’s surface energy, so that when humidity, sweat or oleos substances come into contact with it, they form beads and simply roll off. Because the P2i technology can coat every aspect of a finished product at the nanoscopic level, it also protects much more thoroughly than alternative approaches where individual product components are treated prior to assembly. The result is a truly durable liquid repellent coating that does not affect the product’s look, feel or delicate acoustic properties.
