Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset

 

Plantronics is a well-established brand in the Bluetooth headset space, though it has so far mostly focused on mono Bluetooth headsets. As cell phones with stereo Bluetooth profiles become more popular, it is beginning to introduce more stereo...

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.

Lightweight; good call quality; excellent wireless range

Uneven headset cable; no Skype/VoIP support (not really expected though)

I found that the Plantronics Pulsar 260 was almost everything I had hoped it would be.

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??

The title of this article asks whether the Plantronics Pulsar 260 Stereo Bluetooth Headset is Nirvana or a "Near Missa". Of course, nothing is that black and white. These headphones are no exception. The design and form factor alone earned them a...

Lightweight, pendant design, easy to sync

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

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.

Your "music" weakness seems like your phone's. I'm looking at Softick Audio Gateway (AG) and this headset to potentially resolve the same with Treo 650. My rating is bogus/premature but req'd to reply

Great quality sound, I love it. I have been using this product for a year now. People thinks its an MP3 player. I prefer to use this product than the one ear bluetooth, I feel off balance when using the that kind. I can hear the person I am talking too...

For long drives if you want to hear the person your talking to in stereo. Listening to music and phone calls in both ears. Place your phone in the office and move around the building and still talk

With the Palm Smart Phone cannot listen to music wirelessly. Ear buds comes off

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.
