"These new versions further strengthen the Blackwire family of high-value and high-performance corded headsets"

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – June 8, 2015 – Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a global leader in communications, collaboration and entertainment for businesses and consumers, today announced two new versions of its entry-level Blackwire 315 and 325 corded headsets. The new solutions now feature both USB and 3.5mm connectivity options for individuals using a PC, smartphone, tablet or all three, for business communications.  This increased flexibility makes it easier for IT departments to match the right headset with an individual’s personal work style and work environment and makes it extremely easy for the user to switch the headset to a PC, tablet or mobile phones. Now organizations looking to mass deploy headsets have plenty of options with outstanding design and comfort, superior audio quality, and impressive price-performance.

“These new versions further strengthen the Blackwire family of high-value and high-performance corded headsets,” said Christopher Thompson, vice president, global enterprise product marketing. “An IT buyer should never have to compromise when it comes to quality, cost or offering their internal customer the right product to meet their needs, and with our new options for Blackwire they won’t have to. Seamless switching options mean users can easily move between PC applications and a mobile phone or tablet, making the Blackwire family an exceptionally flexible choice for today’s dynamic office environments.
