As most of you would know by now, driving around in your car while talking on the phone without a hands-free device of any sort is dangerous, not only to yourself but other road users as well. This is why there is such a thing known as a Bluetooth headset or a hands-free kit for your car, so stop being miserly and invest in one already. Of course, a hands-free kit isn’t only limited to in-vehicle use, but can also come in handy at home or in the office. In case you’re short on ideas for a particular model, you can always look towards Plantronics and not go wrong. This manufacturer has been a pretty solid performer in the past, and their releases are full of quality as well. The latest would be the Calisto 800 Series, which is the first speakerphone in its unified communications product portfolio which will merge multi-device hands-free connectivity with intuitive visual call management. Specially optimized for use with Microsoft Office Communicator and Lync, this series is meant for private and home office workers who depend on multiple communication devices in order for them to collaborate effectively. The Calisto 800 Series will comprise of the Calisto 825 that can manage calls between a PC and a cell phone, while a wireless microphone delivers unparalleled speakerphone audio quality and freedom of movement.
