Gadget Gal: Plantronics Explorer 210

Gotta love multitasking.

MUST I?

Indeed, you must. There is nothing I like more than talking on the phone and doing other stuff. When mobiles came along, walking and talking pleased me no end. Now I needed something to take the multitask thrill up a level.

YOU LIVE DANGEROUSLY!

I do not recommend chatting and driving, and anyone who does is breaking the law. Just in case you didn’t know. What I’m talking about is doing the dishes, sweeping the floor, maybe even going so far as to cleaning the bath while you’re talking on the phone. It makes these tedious chores go faster!

I SEE WHERE YOU’RE GOING.

So clever! Obviously, you need an earpiece in order to do all this, and I have to say, I’m quite impressed with the Plantronics Explorer 210. I’ve tried many a headset, and what I like best about this is the part that hooks over your ear. It’s so slim!

AND COMFY?

Yes. It connects to your phone in no time, and the reception is great. The only quibble I have also has to do with that slim hook thing — it, unfortunately, makes it easy for the bit that goes in your ear to wiggle around a bit — not a pleasant feeling, and kind of annoying when your friend’s voice is slipping out of your hearing.

A MINOR DRAWBACK.

Well, it’s annoying if you’re multitasking, and the headset keeps slipping. But once you get it set, you’re laughing . . . and chatting . . . and ironing the sheets. This is a fab accessory for those of us gals who are gadgety, and also very busy.

The Plantronics Explorer 210 is available from Meteor for €24.99
