PLANTRONICS BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY: HANDS-FREE, AT LAST

Being a lawyer on the run, I am beset with endless calls from the office and from my clients as I go from one meeting to another. Every time I step out of the office or outside my home, I am almost always constantly on my cellular phone.
When I was gifted by my husband, Vincent, with a Plantronics lightweight wireless headset, I lost the crick on my neck from where I cradle my phone during times I need both my hands to multitask.
And gone now are the ringing numbness in my ears after a long call and the nervous tick I get when I’m driving as I furtively hope the authorities won’t catch sight of me holding the phone in one hand while the other is on the steering wheel.
I use the sleek and lightweight Plantronics Marque M155 Bluetooth headset, which frees me to literally tap, type and swipe. When a call comes in, I just say “Answer” and I am in a call with no buttons to press. I can even listen to music, podcasts or GPS directions as I drive. Navigating the streets of the concrete jungle while holding a phone to my ear is now a thing of the past.
“Smartphone users want to harness the power of their phones to complement and simplify their busy lives,” said Elizabeth Hamren, vice president of Marketing, Plantronics. “The Marque lets them take advantage of the full range of their phone’s capabilities, even while talking or listening to music or a podcast, all in a great looking, super lightweight device.”
Alvin Kiew, senior regional manager, Southeast Asia, manages the company’s market development, channel distribution and customer growth strategies. Josh Doctolero, senior country manager for Plantronics B.V., Philippines, manages the Office and Contact Center (OCC) business with key accounts and major distribution channels in the Philippines.
Doctolero, a smart and savvy techno aficionado, who keeps track of every development in the communications technology, says that “the way we communicate says a lot about the way we live, the way we work and the way we play. Employing the power of communications allows us to live our lives fuller, work better and even have extra playtime.”
When one turns on the Plantronics Marque M155 Bluetooth headset, it steps you through a voice-guided pairing process for Android smartphones and iPhones. The free MyHeadset app also gives tips and tools to get more from the Plantronics Marque M155 which is available in either Jet Black or Arctic White.
