Plantronics, a provider of audio communications and wearable technology, has launched the Plantronics Explorer 500, a compact, high-performance Bluetooth headset.

 "We know you have better things to do with your hands than hold on to your phone. Whether you're on the road, or juggling a briefcase and a latte on your walk to the office, Explorer 500 lets you harness the power of your smartphone, hands-free," said Jan Caldarella, Category Director, mobile communications solutions at Plantronics.

"We've designed the Explorer 500 to provide clear, life-like voice audio (letting you be more easily understood by your smartphone), even in noisy environments." 

The Explorer 500 combines contemporary design, GSMA-certified HD Voice and dual-mic noise reduction for clearer calls. The included magnetic strap can be fastened onto a keychain, purse, laptop bag or rearview mirror, and doubles as a USB charger.

Explorer 500 is for more than just phone calls. A touch of a button activates voice-control for smartphone assistants Siri, Google Now or Cortana, so users can harness the power of their smartphone hands-free and keep their device safe. With A2DP, stream music, catch up on podcasts or hear GPS directions on the go. The headset can even be customised with one of three included built-in languages for whispered alerts for power on/off, battery level and connection status.

The Plantronics Explorer 500 with USB charging strap is available in white and black for a manufacturer's suggested retail price of S$129 with GST.
