LAS VEGAS, April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CTIA WIRELESS 2008
-- Plantronics, Inc. (NYSE: PLT) today presented the Plantronics
Discovery(R) 925 Bluetooth(R) earpiece collection, a signature line of
designer headsets for both men and women. Delivering exceptional audio
performance, complemented by bold lines and distinctive finishes, the
Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth earpiece represents a technical
craftsmanship previously unseen in the mobile accessories category.
The revolutionary design of the Plantronics' Discovery 925 Bluetooth
earpiece provides outstanding incoming and outgoing audio clarity in any
environment. Central to its performance is the unique VFrame(TM) design,
structured to follow the contours of the face and draw the microphone
closer to the mouth for a headset that is as much objet d'art as it is

"When designing a Bluetooth headset, it is critical to fully understand
the physical and emotional relationship between the product and the end
user," said Darrin Caddes, vice president of Industrial Design at
Plantronics, Inc. "Similar to high performance watches or automobiles, our
Bluetooth headset is designed to deliver a first-class experience -- in
this case to permit clear, wireless conversation without the distraction of
background noise. It is equally imperative that the product expresses

Plantronics' inaugural collection of Discovery 925 earpieces includes a
unique palette of colors for both men and women: Onyx Black, Alchemy Gold
and Cerise Pink. Each earpiece is treated with glass beads and fire-blasted
for a deep, enamel-like finish.
Each Plantronics Discovery 925 comes with a matching, soft textile
carrying case that recharges and stores the earpiece. The Discovery 925
earpiece supports up to five hours of talk time, while the charging case
provides an extra five-hour charge on the go. Self-stabilizing, custom-fit
eartips create a light, perfectly balanced fit without the need for an
earloop. Plantronics QuickPair(TM) greatly simplifies pairing with most
"From the onset, our vision for the Discovery 925 was to deliver
remarkable audio clarity from within a supremely comfortable and
distinctive package," said Renee Niemi, general manager and vice president,
Mobile and Entertainment at Plantronics, Inc. "Plantronics leveraged the
talents of its Industrial Design team to create the Discovery 925 as a true
'tech-cessory,' and bridge the gap between high-grade audio performance and
high-fashion -- a gap that has previously eluded most headset designs."
Introduced at an exclusive showing during the Spring 2008 New York
Fashion Week, the Plantronics Discovery 925 has received rave reviews among
fashion press, stylists and celebrities.
