SYDNEY, Australia

Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) today announced the launch of the M25™ and M55™ Bluetooth headsets featuring a groundbreaking battery readiness of up to five months. This is an ideal offer for users who need their handsets to be ready at any time without having to constantly worry about battery power.

DeepSleep™ technology activates when the headset is away from the phone for more than 90 minutes. When the phone and headset are back in range, tap the “call” button to “wake” the headset up; this feature is ideal for users that often leave their headset in the car.

Peter Petrides, National Sales Manager of Plantronics Australia said, “The M25 and M55 are quite simply the easiest headsets to use if you’re transitioning from wired to a wireless and don’t want to be charging your headset all the time. We understand it can be inconvenient at times, having to remember to charge so many devices, and for a novice user, the built-in intelligence surrounding power-management makes the M25 and M55 headsets ready and charged when you are.”

M25 and M55 Benefits:

  • DeepSleep mode that extends battery life for up to five months
  • Voice Alerts that whisper talk time, battery level, and more
  • Lightweight, compact design, weighing 8 grams
  • A2DP, wideband and multipoint technologies
  • Digital noise reduction for improved call quality and built-in echo cancelling
  • Up to 11 hours of talk time, 16 hours of standby or 150 days in DeepSleep hibernation mode app for a battery headset meter
