Jabra versus Plantronics

08/28/04 | by JAdP | Categories: Mobile and Wireless, Toys and Tools, TIA Tools & Toys, Bluetooth

Specifications - Plantronics

I had to search for these - they're not in the Plantronics manual.

  1. Bluetooth Compliance: Bluetooth v? devices that support the headset and hands-free profiles.
  2. Bluetooth radio power: ? (probably 2.5 milliWatts).
  3. Headset weight: 1+ oz./30 g.
  4. Typical Talk Time: 8 hours; Standby Time: 200 hours; Charging Time: 2 hours.
  5. Rechargeable NiMH user-replaceable battery.
  6. Not waterproof.
  7. The body has a length of ~ 3+ inches/8 cm and a width of ~ 1-1/8 inches/3 cm. At its thickest point near the speaker, it is ~ 1-1/8 inches/3 cm.

Controls/Displays: Power/Mute button, Talk button, Volume rocker switch and indicator light.

The power/mute button is a very small button along the side of the headset, raised up from a depressed "control panel" which also contains the volume control. Press and hold until the indicator flashes green to turn on. Press and hold to turn off.

The Talk button is a larger half-oval on top of the headset.

Press and release the Talk button to answer a call.

Press and release the Talk button to transfer a call to the headset from the phone.

Press and hold the Talk button for two seconds to initiate voice dialing.

Press and release the Talk button to end a call.

Mute function: press and release the power/mute button to mute a call. Two short beeps will sound when mute is initiated and every 60 seconds while mute is enabled. This is not a feature on the Jabra.

The volume control is a small rocker switch along the side of the headset in a depressed area. It has an arrow head pointing out at each end of the switch. The increase volume side has a raised arrow head; the decrease volume side has a depressed arrow head. The headset beeps when either the min or max volume is reached.

Indicator light: Red/Green LED. The indicator flashes green on power on and red on power off. It flashes green during a call.

Low battery warning: The headset will emit a beep every 20 seconds when battery is low and the indicator will flash red when battery needs to be recharged.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
