Plantronics’ Latest Headset Talks You Through the Set-Up

I still think headsets look dorky, but at least Plantronics’ latest model is dead simple to set up.

Turn it on and the Marque M155 literally talks you through the process of setting it up for either Android or iPhone. What’s more, there are apps for both smartphone platforms, aimed at showing you other things you can do with it.

Once you have it set up, the Marque M155 is kind of like other such devices. One nice touch: It is designed to allow calls to be answered simply by saying “answer.”

The headset comes in either black or white and will sell for around $60. The white model, though, is set to be exclusive to Verizon for a bit; the company is bundling it with the new HTC Rhyme.
