Plantronics Headset

Plantronics Mobile Audio 920
I recently got my hands on this headset device (Plantronics Mobile Audio 920). I had a 50-50 feeling about this device. It felt similar to the previous headsets I had come across. Previously, I have used Nokia bluetooth headsets (BH-209 and HS-36W) which were compatible with Nokia phones.

Recently, I was searching for some headset which could work with other mobile phones. There were many choices available which allow one headset to be connected with two mobile phones simultaneously and also belonging to two different mobile companies. Many third party companies are available which connect to any type of mobile phone (as long as bluetooth is present).

This particular headset can be connected to two different mobile handset phones simultaneously and also of different companies. But the other point which I consider as a plus for this particular device is that apart from being a bluetooth device this also acts as a wireless device when connected to a PC which enables to make voice calls. The price of this device was put at KD 25 (US$ 90) on Blink and currently crazy deal offer at Blink (valid for few days from 14th January 2012) has priced it at KD 15 (US $ 53). When I was searching for similar devices for PC and Mobile phone at different stores throughout Kuwait, this particular device was available at Blink and was reasonably priced.

The most intriguing thing about all these devices is that the power cords are annoying different. The Plantronics Mobile Audio 920 has its own cord which is connected using USB port for charging. I am just hoping that in the future there is a standard for power charging with electronic devices like cell phones, accessories and other devices. This way less amount of clutter with the wires.

Another new year dawns on us. 2011 was another interesting year with a lot of things happening. (Ofcourse 365 days in a year is quite sufficient for all sort of events). Each year brings ups and downs which leads us in having amazing set of memories and experiences. Hope 2012 brings another amazing set of experiences, hopefully good ones
