The .Audio 340 (pictured) features a pressure-free headband with a feather-light fit, along with swivel-mounted ear cushions for comfort during long periods of wear.

The Plantronics .Audio 510 USB and .Audio 550 DSP are lightweight in design and featuring 40mm speakers that offer up a dynamic base response. The noise-cancelling microphone cuts out background noise and enhances speech recognition accuracy.  In addition, the .Audio 550 DSP features a digital signal processing chip for actively eliminating background noise, and PerSono Audio Control Centre Software, which provides full control over microphone and audio setting, with presets for everything from hip hop to classical.
