Plantronics launches K100 in-car speakerphone

Plantronics has expanded its family of Bluetooth products with the new K100 in-car speakerphone.

The Plantronics K100 offers a robust combination of advanced audio technology, ease of use and enhanced features for convenient, hands free conversations in the car.

This is part of a range of smart communications devices that are geared for the growing mobile worker and is encased in environmentally sound packaging featuring a new brand identity.

The Plantronics K100 includes dual microphones and digital signal processing (DSP) technology that keeps the user’s voice sharp and clear, while limiting surrounding noise. Echo-cancellation improves listening on both sides of the call, while a high-quality speaker ensures every call is heard clearly. The Plantronics K100 also includes an integrated FM transmitter so users can hear conversations, stream music, podcasts, GPS navigation from their smartphones, straight to their car stereo system.

The device is very easy to setup and use, and features convenient voice alerts for pairing, low battery, mute, and connection status. A dedicated one-touch mute button with voice confirmation provides confidence that the feature is engaged.

Large buttons let the user control the K100 while keeping their eyes on the road, and a handy micro USB charger means the speakerphone never has to leave the car.

“The K100 is the perfect in-car solution for users to take calls, listen to music and be productive, while keeping both hands on the wheel,” said Stuart Bradshaw, EMEA Consumer Marketing Manager at Plantronics. “We think consumers will be delighted by the K100 speakerphone’s great audio performance, simplicity and affordability.”

The Plantronics K100 features a slim design with a sturdy clip that stays securely in place on the visor. The Plantronics K100 delivers up to 17 hours of talk time and 15 days of standby time.

The Plantronics K100 has a price of £59.99 RRP and will be available from November at Carphone Warehouse and other leading retailers.
