Out of all the concerns professional drivers face, safety is first. Telcom & Data, a leader in business phone systems, is pleased to introduce the Plantronics Blacktop 500 Bluetooth headset to enhance driver safety. The headset has been designed specifically to keep commercial drivers’ eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. The unit cancels road noise, stays comfortable all day, and lets drivers easily manage calls while complying with the federal law that bans handheld cell phone use.
The Plantronics Blacktop 500 headset delivers great features for in-vehicle use. To ensure the highest level of performance and sound quality, the unit is designed to cancel out road and engine noises. The Blacktop 500 features Plantronics’ Smart Sensor™ technology which detects when the headset is being worn and automatically routes the audio – both calls and media like iTunes and Pandora – from the mobile phone to the headset whenever it’s put on. An in-vehicle charging system delivers unlimited talk time while driving and the USB connection can also be used for Internet chat or movies while taking a driving break.
“Professional drivers, such as cabbies, delivery people and long-haul truckers, have to deal with incredibly challenging communications issues while on the road,” said Lori Langona, director of consumer marketing at Plantronics. “The Blacktop 500 pulls out all the stops when it comes to comfort, sound quality, noise cancellation and hands-free convenience, so that these driving pros can get the job done without missing a step.”
