Plantronics Discovery 925 Earpiece Now Available in AT&T Stores

Consumer Reports "Top 100 Products of 2008" Designation and Widespread Customer Accolades Position Discovery 925 as the Bluetooth Earpiece for the Holiday Season

SANTA CRUZ, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2008) - Plantronics, Inc. (NYSE: PLT) announced today the availability of the highly acclaimed Plantronics Discovery® 925 Bluetooth® earpiece at AT&T retailers nationwide.

"The Discovery 925 is instantly recognizable by its jewelry-like aesthetic, exceptional sound and perfect fit," said Michael Cowan, director, Product Marketing for AT&T's wireless operations. "AT&T customers expect to find new and expertly designed technology in our stores, from the latest in 3G smartphones to high-end Bluetooth headsets like the Discovery 925."

The iconic 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™ design, which follows the contours of the face and draws the microphone closer to the mouth for enhanced audio performance and connection range. Plantronics AudioIQ® noise reduction technology adds to the Discovery 925's performance by removing background noise while simultaneously adjusting the incoming volume -- ensuring great sound on both sides of the conversation.

Plantronics' acclaimed fit, as well as the inclusion of a unique, matching charging case for extra battery life and earpiece storage, add to the exceptional value of the Discovery 925.

High Industry and Consumer Accolades

The Discovery 925 has received high praise from media, celebrities and consumers since its introduction in April 2008. Most recently, the Plantronics Discovery 925 was designated a Consumer Reports coveted "Top 100 Products of 2008" (November 2008). As the only monaural Bluetooth headset to receive the honor, that Discovery 925 was lauded for its light weight and compact size as well as superior audio performance and ease of use.

The Plantronics Discovery 925 is also one of the highest rated headsets at leading consumer product review web sites.

High Design Meets Simplicity & Convenience

The Discovery 925 was crafted with simplicity in mind: a single diamond-shaped button operates all earpiece functions, such as turning the device on and off, dialing or ending calls, activating voice dialing, or kicking the headset into pairing mode. A second button on the underside cycles through three volume levels.

Soft, clear gel stabilizers comfortably balance the earpiece in the ear without the need for extra loops.

For added convenience, each Plantronics Discovery 925 also comes with a matching, soft textile carrying case that provides a full five-hour charge while safely storing the earpiece. The earpiece alone supports up to five hours of talk time and eight days of standby time.

The headset weighs a mere 9 grams and is compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled phones. Multipoint technology allows the simultaneous pairing of two handsets to the device, and QuickPair™ delivers an instant phone connection.

Availability and Pricing

In time for the holidays, the Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth earpiece is available in Onyx Black for $129.99 at AT&T retail stores nationwide.
