Communications headset vendor, Plantronics, has released its smallest and most stylish Bluetooth headset offering yet with the Savor M1100.
The first thing you will notice with the Savor M1100 is the effort put into making it comfortable.
The V-frame is lightweight, weighs around nine grams in total, and keeps a subtle profile against your jaw when worn, and there are three different sizes of silicon ear gel tips for a personalised and secure fit.
The other area the headset excels in is sound clarity, which is aided by three inbuilt microphones that have been optimally placed to protect from wind noise.
AudioIQ and DSP technology also helps to reduce background noise, and echo cancellation also improves the overall quality of the call.
Testing of the headset resulted in just under four hours talk time and seven hours stand by, and iPhone users will find the onscreen battery meter very useful in tracking the battery life.
For people who use more than one mobile phone, the Savor M1100 has multipoint technology that allows it to be paired with two or more devices.
The launch of the Savor M1100 in Australia also marks the rollout of Plantronics’ Vocalyst service in the region.
The Cloud-based voice service has been designed by Plantronics to enhance the user’s Bluetooth experience with extended voice capabilities.
The Vocalyst service is accessible from the headset, and all the user needs to do is say a voice command and the Vocalyst service will do what you ask.
In addition to recording and listen to reminders, and updating social networks such as Facebook and Twitter with the service, the other useful aspect of Vocalyst is the ability to listen to the news, finance, sports and weather directly from the headset.
Savor M1100 sells for $129 and comes with one year free Vocalyst voice and text service, and is available now through Telstra and other stockists.

Fun fact: The words spoken by US astronaut, Neil Armstrong, as he stepped on the moon, “That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind”, were uttered through a Plantronics headset.
