Be Safe, Be Hands Free!!

May 22nd, 2008 No comments

For the last few years different states have been setting laws that will restrict drivers from using their handheld cell phones while driving. California State Law will take effect in July! Some states such as New Jersey are even banning the sale of hand held cell phones if they do not have a hands-free option. Kansas will fine $1,000 and a misdemeanor if they believe an accident was caused by the driver being on their cell phone. Right now is a good time to invest in a blue tooth or cellular headset before the law takes effect in your state if it has not already.

Here are a couple of good options! For the Diva, we have the Plantronics MIX M60 outfitted with genuine swarovski crystals. This over the ear headset is compatible with any cell phone that has a 2.5mm jack. It also has a boom-mounted microphone that allows for clear calls.

Plantronics also offers the MX250 Headset which fits in the ear. It has a noise cancelling microphone that is great for cancelling out the noise of the wind while driving your convertible. It is compatible with all cellular phones with a 2.5mm jack.

Super Cisco Headset Solution!!

We just found out about an adapter for Cisco phones that lets you answer and hang-up calls remotely when using a Plantronics wireless headset. A great solution for those that want to get the most mobility out of their wireless headsets.

The APC-4 adapter (part # 37978-01) is for use on Cisco IP models 7975G, 7965G, 7945G, 7962G, and 7942G phones. With this adapter you can use any of the most popular Plantronics wireless headsets (CS55, CS70N, CS351N, CS361N, Voyager 510S and others) and answer/hang-up remotely, getting more done and not running back to your phone for every call.

Plantronics Calisto Pro is a telecommuters best friend.

We recently began selling a very unique headset solution for people in a home office environment. We’ve been testing it around our office (we play with every new product extensively so we know how to recommend it) and it’s pretty impressive. Bottom line: it offers a combination of three things no other quality headset offers. One, wireless connection to your landline. Two, it pairs (Bluetooth) with your cell phone. And three, you can take VoIP calls on your computer.

The headset is commercial grade, lightweight, offers noise canceling and our testers tell me it’s comfortable enough to wear all day. You have a small remote keypad to carry or clip to your belt which has caller ID and all of your typical phone functions (plus you can save 200 of your Outlook contacts to the unit). It also has a decent speakerphone when you don’t want to use the handset. When using the unit with your computer, VoIP applications work great, however, you are not able to use the headset in place of your computer microphone and speakers for standard computer use and music listening. By using one headset for three different modes of communication you can simplify devices and eliminate extra charging all with one unit.
