Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset review: Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset

 

The Plantronics Pulsar 260 is easy to use, has a comfortable fit, and can be used to stream music to your home speakers too.

The Plantronics Pulsar 260 has a rather uneven and cumbersome headset cord.

The Plantronics Pulsar 260's excellent sound quality and user-friendly controls make it a great stereo Bluetooth headset.

Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Stereo Earphones

 

Lately, it seems that media players and Bluetooth radios are more or less standard features within mobile phones. Individually, these two features can

Great battery life ; Simple to use ; Reciever is a small, pocketable pod

Some static noticed ; Still involves wires ; Loud confirmation "beeps

The concepts works, as with the product. My major issue with this item relates to the use of wires. I realize there's no getting around it (for now), but I wish there was a better way to deal with them. Some devices may receive static when using this...

Review: Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Stereo Headset — Nirvana or Near Missa??

Expert Review

 

The Pulsar 260 aims to allow the convenience of music listening and hands-free phone calls, but its poor quality for music means it's not recommended.

Lightweight, pendant design, easy to sync

Mediocre sound quality for music, below average call quality, delay in resumption of music after a call

Works great with Apple iPhone

 

There are other earphone options from Plantronics. The other 2 are earbuds that don't go in the ear and over each ear headphones. You would have to buy those separately. I haven't used the mic much to test for sound quality.

This works with my Apple iPhone 2G via bluetooth very well. I can even leave my phone in the next room and still get great reception

The clothing clip can be easily lost

Works poorly

 

At 50 bucks, I'm annoyed I can't return it for a refund... oh well.

Not many -- the range is OK when it's working properly

The microphone quality is terrible -- it drops out and has poor fidelity otherwise. It's quite temperamental, too- it is always losing the association with the laptop (a Macbook). Other people aren't able to get a stable association either

great for music

 

Paired up easily with my Samsung Sync cellphone for playing music. Several different sized earbud plugs are included in the package. With the right size, the earbuds fit nicely and the fidelity is satisfactory for me

This device can also be used for phone conversations since there is a mic located along the middle of the earphone cable. However, people have told me that they have a hard time hearing me via the mic

Product Specifications

The Pulsar 260 is a compact, high-performing pod with Bluetooth technology and corded stereo ear-buds - custom designed for the increasing number of people who want to use their mobile phone as a music player but don't want to miss calls. The pod enables you to change track and volume without touching the phone (or other Bluetooth stereo device). When a call comes in, the music is paused automatically and you answer the call simply by pressing a button on the corded headset. It is lighter and more discreet than over-the-head or behind-the-neck style headsets, plus you can also use the headset in-car simply by removing an ear bud.
