First Look: Plantronics Pulsar 260 Headset

1:35 /

The Plantronics Pulsar 260's excellent sound quality and user-friendly controls make it a great stereo Bluetooth headset.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> I'm Nicole Lee assistant editor for CNET.com and this is the Plantronics Pulsar 260, a stereo Blue Tooth headset with the pendant style controller as you can see here. On the front here is the music player controls, the volume rocker, the track shuttle keys and in the middle is sort of a call mute button. On the side is the power key. It also has a little clip on the back that you can use to clip to your shirt or your belt. In order to make and receive calls, it's actually connected to kind of a little controller here. This as I said is used to make, answer and receive calls, it has a built in mic here. So you have to bring it up to your mouth to speak. And it also has an optional lanner [assumed spelling ] that can hang around on your neck and it has these two ear buds that you can use. Unfortunately because of this attached controller here you can't use your own headset so you have to use the included ear buds in order to make calls. Overall comfort was really good, these two ear buds are really comfortable to fit in the ear. It's a little cumbersome to have all these wires and the two ear bud wires are of different lengths which can be a little cumbersome for some, it's supposed to hang around your neck like so. Overall it's a pretty decent headset from Plantronics. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Plantronics Pulsar 260. ^M00:01:22 [ Music ]
