Plantronics has launched its new portable Calisto 3200 and 5200 speakerphones for PC and mobile devices. The devices come with, among other things, 360-gauge audio and microphones. That’s what UCToday reports.

The devices also contain simple touch-sensitive buttons and visual indicators. Users can also use voice commands and mute alarms that can provide direct feedback on the status of the call. Most interesting, however, is that the phones are fully portable. This allows users to participate in conference calls on the go.

The Calisto 3200 connects via USB to PC, Mac and tablets. The speakerphone works together with applications and softphones from Avaya, Cisco, IBM and Microsoft, among others. The Calisto 5200 comes with an extra option, namely to connect to a smartphone via a 3.5 millimeter aux cable.

The Calisto 5200 saves battery life by automatically turning off when disconnected from a smartphone. This prevents a phone call from being started and disconnected halfway through due to a lack of power. The Calisto 5200 will last 30 hours on a full load.

Both devices appear in USB-A and USB-C versions. The devices are supplied with cable management and a carrying case. Both devices also work together with Plantronics Manager Pro, the company’s cloud solution for business IT users. The SaaS app lets IT administrators add and support audio devices from a central location. It is also possible to gain insight into the audio performance of the devices within the company environment.

“Our new Calisto speakerphones make it possible to hold conference calls anywhere and ensure that you can hear the other side well,” said Shantanu Sarkar, executive vice president of the headset business unit at Plantronics.

The Calisto 3200 costs $99.95 and the Calisto 5200 costs $149.95. Both devices are immediately available worldwide.
