Orlando (FL) – Plantronics has introduced its third Bluetooth stereo headset. The new Pulsar 260 model expands the firm’s offering on the lower end of the portfolio.

Compared to the 590 series of stereo headsets, which is a rather bulky model, the Pulsar 260 consists of a control device to which wired, noise-isolating earphones as well as a microphone are attached. According to the manufacturer, the control device allows users to navigate through a music collection and adjust the volume without ever touching a music phone.

 

 

 

The Pulsar 260 also allows users to wirelessly switch back and forth between phone conversations and streaming music, Plantronics said. The new headset is shipping now for a suggested retail price of $110. The 590 series continues to be offered for prices of $140 and $250.
