CES 2007: Plantronics Discovery 665 headset with an IQ

CES 2007, Gadgets, Mobile phones

Designed for those situations when you’re taking a call and the noise of a passing bus, tannoy annoucements or loud music completely obscures the most relevant part of what you’re being told – the Plantronics Voyager 665 Bluetooth headset comes with new Audio IQ technology that is designed to intelligently adjust sound volumes when the background noise picks up. The idea is to stop you having to fiddle with the volume button too much while you chat.

Alongside that technology comes an impressive array of accessories too. The stylish headset fits into a compact holder with a pen clip. If you receive a call while it’s in there, it will even give you a vibration alert. You also get an extra attachment that takes AAA batteries and will give you a few hours extra juice if you run out. And you get a car charger in the box too.

Other features include QuickPair technology for faster, easier pairing with Bluetooth devices and a lightweight construction (just 9g) for extra comfort. Unfortunately, I don’t know the exact price yet, nor when it will be hitting the UK.
