Plantronics today announced two new Bluetooth headsets which incorporate new technologies for better audio clarity during conversations. The Plantronics Discovery 645 will be available later this month for $149, while the Plantronics Voyager 510 is available now for $79.

The Plantronics Voyager 510, said Plantronics, comes in a black and silver color scheme and is reportedly the first Bluetooth headset to market to include both a noise-canceling microphone and wind-reduction technology. Other features include multipoint technology for easily switching between two Bluetooth devices, a lightweight, foldable design, one-touch call answer/end and up to six hours of talk time.

The Plantronics Discovery 645, which has the same look and feel as the Discovery 640, builds upon its predecessor by adding a digital sound processing chip which actively reduces background noise while talking. Other features include a AAA pocket charger which offers up to nine hours of talk time, a weight of less than two nickels and a chrome-finish carrying case.

“As Bluetooth headsets gain in popularity, consumers are using them in every imaginable environment — from the car to night clubs to baseball games,” said Renee Niemi, vice president of Mobile and Entertainment at Plantronics, in a statement. “By adding advanced sound technologies to the Discovery and Voyager products, we are providing consumers with the best of both worlds: products that look great and sound fantastic, regardless of where they are talking.”
