Inspired by modern aesthetic sensibilities, the Plantronics Replacement Discovery 975 Headset is an affordable "replacement" Bluetooth headset that's only compatible with the Discovery 975 fully-accessorized headset system. Designed for tech-savvy professionals who appreciate clean lines and understated elegance, the Discovery 975 earpiece and boom mic sounds great, but also has a unique, eye-catching appeal. Since this is only the "replacement" model, it comes without all of the full headset system accessories, which includes the Discovery 975 Charging Case, its specific power adapter, and its alternate small/medium/large gel ear tips that fit perfectly with the earpiece. When the replacement headset is united with all of its accessories, it can easily be worn all day. It even features an integrated lithium-polymer rechargeable battery that facilitates up to five hours of talk time or 168 straight hours of standby time. Plantronics' stylish, comfortable and lightweight headset also supports superior wireless communication via its Bluetooth V 2.1 connectivity with a maximum transmission range of 32.8 ft (10m). Bluetooth V 2.1 technology affords ultra-clear communication, speedy transfers, secure connections, headset compatibility and hands-free control and operation.

Bluetooth version 2.1's list of various profiles and features yields even more benefits for the Discovery 975 Headset. Its improved Bluetooth features include Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) for speedy transfers, Extended Synchronous Connections (eSCO) for improved voice quality and Secured Simple Pairing (SSP). SSP improves the pairing strength between two Bluetooth enabled devices, while also boosting the wireless signal security at the same time. Plus, for added versatility, the headset features two additional Bluetooth profiles - Bluetooth HFP V 1.5 and Bluetooth HSP V 1.1. The Hands-Free Profile or (HFP) V 1.5 allows you to answer calls, make calls, talk, hang-up the phone, adjust the volume and much more - all without using your hands. This profile is most commonly associated with Bluetooth hands-free car kits, which use HFP V 1.5 to facilitate hands-free mobile phone operation, so you can talk on the phone, control the phone and drive safely - all at the same time. The Headset Profile or (HSP) V 1.1 is the profile that actually allows your mobile phone to work with the Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset. HSP V 1.1 supports all the headset controls including answering the phone, hanging-up the phone, turning the volume up, turning the volume down and of course - making a call.

Even though this Discovery 975 Headset model is a replacement model for use with an already purchased complete headset system, it's still outfitted with the same outstanding audio clarifying features. Just like the headset you've lost, this replacement model automatically eliminates unwanted noise using AudioiQ2 Noise Canceling technology, while still retaining the natural sound of your own voice. There's also a three-layer protection system that features WindSmart technology to aggressively block any intrusive wind noise. The replacement headset supports whisper-level Voice Alerts as well. The Plantronics Voice Alerts use a whispering voice reminder that actually whispers into your earpiece whenever the battery is low or a connection is lost. Plus, to improve the headset's flexibility and ease-of-operation, user's will benefit from the Plantronics Multipoint technology. This function allows you to pair and maintain a wireless connection with two independent Bluetooth enabled devices simultaneously - which means no switching, reconnecting and switching again whenever you are using the headset with two Bluetooth enabled devices at or near the same time.

      Comments about Plantronics Replacement Discovery 975 Headset:

      My wife and I both have this headset. If you knew my wife you might think that it was surgically attached to her she loves it that much. I mainly use it while I'm in the car and get great clear sound even with the top down. The noise/wind cancelling feature allows the people I talk to hear every word. But the best of all is the ability to plug it into its holder and recharge it on the fly. This gives both my wife and I incredible talk time. I just need a phone that will last as long. I wish it was a little more durable, my wife is kinda rough on hers and this purchase was to replace hers. I have had mine for I think 3 or 4 years now and still works great. Hers lasted about 2 years.

        Comments about Plantronics Replacement Discovery 975 Headset:

        If there was any criticism I could offer on this headset would be that it's FAR too easy to lose! I've already lost one, and have no idea when it fell out of my ear. It's comfortable and I prefer this type of headset without the uncomfortable and bulky "earhook", but I wish there was some way to secure it better so it wouldn't fall out. Otherwise - best bluetooth headset I've ever owned. I normally use it while driving, and people on the other end say it's fine - a far better cry from previous units that picked up the road noise. Has a better range too.
