Plantronics introduces new Calisto portable speakerphones for PC and mobile

Plantronics has launched the new Calisto 3200 and Calisto 5200 portable speakerphones for PC and mobile devices.

With 360-degree audio in a compact device, the new Calisto 3200 and Calisto 5200 share a simple plug-and-play design so individuals or groups of people can have a professional audio conferencing experience from any room or remote location.

Both Calisto models integrate 360-degree microphones that transmit conversations with high quality audio and voice clarity. The speakerphones are intuitive to use with simple touch-sensitive controls and visual indicators, coupled with voice prompts and mute alerts that can provide immediate feedback of call status.

“More than two-thirds of people around the world are working outside the office at least once a week, and even those in the office need solutions for collaborating on the go,” said Shantanu Sarkar, executive vice president, Headset Business Unit at Plantronics.

“Our latest Calisto speakerphones enable conference calls from anywhere and provide the confidence that you’ll be able to hear, and, more importantly, will be heard clearly on the other end.”

The Calisto 3200 connects via USB to PC, Mac and tablet devices while the Calisto 5200 can also connect to smartphone devices using the 3.5mm cable.

To save battery life, the Calisto 5200 will auto power down when disconnected from the smartphone. It features up to 30 hours of listening on a single charge.

Both devices offer options to purchase USB-A or USB-C variants and come with cable management and a carrying case to make transport even easier.

Both Calisto 3200 and Calisto 5200 are compatible with Plantronics Manager Pro. This software-as-a-service allows enterprise IT managers to administer and support audio devices from a central location, as well as empowers IT decision making by providing valuable insights that ensure consistent and exemplary communication and audio performance on the device. Plantronics Manager Pro is sold separately.

The Calisto 3200 ($99.95) and Calisto 5200 ($149.95) will be available to purchase immediately in the US through distributors of Plantronics and Polycom and are currently available globally for order.
