Plantronics, an audio and wearable technology provider, has unveiled the BackBeat 100 Series, the first hybrid neckband wireless headphones for calls and music in the BackBeat stereo product family.
"For many people a great pair of headphones is a constant companion,
whether they're at work, school or on the move," said Lori Langona,
Director of consumer marketing at Plantronics. "The BackBeat 100 Series
is designed for high-quality audio and quick access to phone calls when
you need it, with a discreet wearing style that fades into the
background when you don't."
Weighing less than 30g, BackBeat 100 Series has a flexible neckband design that conforms to the
size and shape of the wearer's neck, with magnetic earbuds that make
tangled wires a thing of the past.
Additional BackBeat 100 Series features include:
* Up to eight hours of listening and talk time
* Simple three-button interface for operation
of music and calls
* Full-range sound with a solid bass audio profile
* Built-in microphone with echo reduction, digital signal processing
(DSP) and HD Voice clarity
* Vibration alerts for incoming calls
