Plantronics grows its Bluetooth lineup for music and productivity

Boot Camp feature for Monday, April 18, 2016

Plantronics grows its Bluetooth lineup for music and productivity.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Plantronics is out with new additions to its Voyager and BackBeat lines.   The Voyager 5200 brings some new technology  to reduce background noise when you need to talk in noisy or windy environments.   Marketing Manaer Lars Ahntholz…

“The other products in the line, as an example, they have four layers of wind smart to minimize wind noise and they all have three microphones.   The newest product has six layers of wind smart.”

And the results are impressive.  The Voyager 5200 carries a premium price of about 120 dollars.   On the Bluetooth stereo side…the new BackBeat Go 3…at 99 dollars …features improved sound and fit …

“We 3D mapped the ear and then we completely redesigned the wireless earbud.”

An optional stylish charging case adds about thirty dollars to the price.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
