     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
 audio ingenuity. The signature elongated design, housing an extended
 microphone, enhances audio performance and connection range. Plantronics'
 AudioIQ(R) noise reduction technology adds to the Discovery 925's
 performance by removing background noise while simultaneously adjusting the
 incoming volume -- ensuring crystal clear sound on both sides of the
 conversation.
 
     "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
 individual taste and style and is comfortable and easy to use."
 
     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
 Bluetooth phones.
 
     "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.
