Plantronics introduces analog/VoIP headset

Analog/VoIP headset

Bucking the increasing emphasis on Bluetooth, the new Plantronics CS70N headset is indeed wireless, but instead uses conventional DECT radio technologies, and (aimed at workplaces) is tied to desktop analog and VoIP phones. The hooked earpiece is similar to popular mobile styles however, and it has considerably longer range than Bluetooth, being rated for 300 feet. All calls have 64-bit encryption, and can be answered and ended from the headset. Volume and mute controls are also present. When fully charged by its base station, the CS70N has up to six hours of active power. It is shipping today for $330.
