Plantronics Brings Sound Innovation to Award-Winning Professional Wireless Headset System Line

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., May 1 /- Plantronics, Inc. (NYSE:PLT) today introduced the new Plantronics CS70N(TM) Professional Wireless Headset System, its third-generation headset solution that provides the perfect combination of audio performance, style and comfort. Designed for both traditional and IP deskphones, the Plantronics CS70N provides office professionals with hands-free mobility for increased accessibility and efficiency at work.

"As today's workplace becomes increasing distributed and virtual, phone calls have evolved beyond just voice communications," said Chuck Yort, vice president and general manager of Business Solutions at Plantronics. "They often involve multimedia, document collaboration and other interactive elements that require professionals to be active and hands-free. The Plantronics CS70N provides this mobility, along with the industry's best combination of audio, style and comfort."

Based on the award-winning Plantronics CS70, the new CS70N features a specially-designed boom and noise-canceling microphone that eliminates distracting background noise in any office environment. The excellent audio, combined with remote answer/end* capabilities, helps the Plantronics CS70N put an end to office "phone tag" -- ensuring important calls are never missed. Professionals can be up to 300 feet away from their desk to take a call, providing the freedom and confidence to bring conversations with them in less predictable environments, such as the hallway, or continue calls in more private areas.

The Plantronics CS70N enables users to talk hands-free and accomplish simultaneous tasks that fill the work day, such as using a keyboard and mouse, leading a webinar, or reaching for an important file. The headset is built on digitally encrypted, voice-dedicated DECT(TM) 6.0 technology to provide exceptional audio quality and lower interference with other wireless devices.

"In addition to providing employees with a great communication solution for smarter, more efficient business communications, the Plantronics CS70N provides peace of mind to IT departments that might be moving to VoIP in the near future," added Yort. "We're helping our customers, from large enterprises to small businesses, plan for the future."

Other Plantronics CS70N features include:

o Discreet, behind the ear design and lightweight (0.75 oz) for all-day
wearing comfort,
o One-touch call answer/end, volume and mute headset controls for ease of use,
o Boom swivels for use on either ear for optional wearing preference,
o 64-bit digital encryption and up to 6 hours of in-use battery life, and
o Integrated base and charging cradle for easy access and reduced desk clutter.

The CS70N Wireless Office Headset System has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US $329.95 and is available today at www.plantronics.com/cs70n and through Plantronics' authorized resellers.
