SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Jabra, the world leader in innovative headset solutions, has launched the new Skype™ Certified Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC, an easy-to-use wireless headset that is guaranteed to work with Skype. With over 124 million connected Skype users worldwide, voice and video calls via the internet are quickly becoming the norm - but who wants to be seen with a tangled mess of cords when talking to Mom? The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC, now available at Best Buy stores nationwide, comes with a pre-paired USB adapter that automatically connects the headset to a PC and Skype software for the simplest plug and play experience to date. Just plug the included USB adapter into a PC via USB and it's ready for wireless Skype calls. The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC will be shown for the first time at the CTIA Enterprise & Applications Show taking place this week in San Francisco.
Juggling Skype and a mobile phone at the same time can be challenging. Juggling two headsets – one for everyday use and one that's optimized for internet calls – is inconvenient, cumbersome, and pricey. With the Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC, two headsets become one, and there's one less gadget to keep track of around the home and office – or even in the car, airport, and hotel when on-the-go. The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC features MultiuseTM technology, enabling it to connect to two devices at the same time, and is optimized for Skype, so connecting to a PC is quick and simple. Forget fumbling for the correct headset when receiving a call, because the Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC headset is dual-purpose and can straddle both computer and mobile phone telephony.
After testing the Jabra EXTREME – FOR PC, Ed Botterill, Certification Manager at Skype, commented that the device was, "the best sounding/performing Bluetooth headset my team has put through our test laboratories."
The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC headset also makes poor quality calls a distant memory. To create the clearest call possible, dual microphones capture sound while intelligently filtering out background noise. This eliminates ambient noise even in the loudest environments, enhancing the call clarity and ensuring a natural sounding voice.
The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC is designed for comfort and style - users won't even realize that they are wearing a headset. Specially developed Ultimate-fit Eargels™ mold to any ear shape to ensure a snug fit: one size really does fit all with the Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC. The headset also comes with two rotatable ear hooks that are contoured to fit the ear perfectly, ensuring a comfortable fit all day long.
The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC is now available for $99.99 at Best Buy retail stores nationwide and on www.BestBuy.com. The Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC is also available without Skype Certification for contact center and office-based users under the name Jabra GO 660.
