Plantronics has launched BackBeat Fit wireless headphone and Voyager Edge Bluetooth earpiece in India. Both the devices are priced at Rs 7,490.
The Backbeat Fit is a Bluetooth enabled wireless headset which comes with a flexible headband and has built-in ear stabilizers. It has the company’s P2i sweat and weather proof nano-coating that protects it from sweat or water damages. The device comes in a two-in-one armband/carrying case which will make it easier to use the phone while working out or for carrying the Backbeat Fit along when it is not in use.
Plantronics claims that the Backbeat Fit can give up to 8 hours of continuous music playback and comes with a DeepSleep mode, which puts it in hibernation mode and saves its battery to be used for up to six months. The device can also be used to answer or make calls, without having to manually use the smartphone. The company also says that it will get over-the-air firmware updates, which will be delivered via its smartphone app.
The Voyager Edge Bluetooth earpiece comes with the company’s signature Plantronics audio technology with proprietary noise and wind cancellation technologies to offer clear sound and enhanced voice quality. The Voyager Edge headset provides up to six hours of talk time. It comes with a charging case which can be used to charge the device’s battery on the go. As per the company’s claims, it can add up to 10 hours of talk time to the earpiece, so the device gives up to 16 hours with the portable charging case.
The Voyager Edge Bluetooth earpiece can understand voice commands and has smart sensors that can be used to answer calls hands-free by simply giving voice commands or by placing the headset on ear. The earpiece can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth or NFC. One can use voice commands to answer or ignore calls, check battery level, connection status, and more. The device can also announce the name of incoming callers for users to know the name of the caller.
The BackBeat Fit will be available in lime burst and electric blue color variants, and will go on sale in July. The Voyager Edge is already available on stores, and can be bought in carbon black and glacial white colors.
