As smartphone users we are often bombarded with numerous accessories for our devices that can either prove to be useless and confined to a draw somewhere, or ones that are extremely useful and are used daily. If you are often out driving you will probably need a good Bluetooth headset, and we now have the Plantronics Marque 2 M165 headset for you that can be used with the Find MyHeadset Android app.
The new Marque 2 headset is promised to be the lightest Bluetooth headset from the company, and weighing only seven grams. It will allow owners to listen to their favourite music or get GPS directions from the Maps application found on iOS 6, and can manage calls without the need of pressing buttons by just saying ‘Answer’ or ‘Ignore’.
There are dual microphones that help reduce interference wind noise and other background noise to provide a clear and crisp call quality, and there is a power saving mode that means the headset is always ready to use with up to seven hours of talk time, eleven days of standby, or 180 days in sleep mode.
A dual charger is provided so users can charge the device either at a PC or in the car and a battery meter will be displayed on your Android device or smartphone. To complement the headset is the new free Find MyHeadset Android application that will locate the headset even if it is switched off.
Users are offered two different ways to find their Plantronics headset with one being a tone played on any headset that is switched on and connected, or a BackTrack feature cleverly shows the date and time with a Google mapped location of the last few events recorded by the phone. The application is available via the Google Play Store.
The Marque 2 will be available via the likes of Best Buy for $59.99 and soon on the Apple Store for £49.99 and other third party retailers.
