CHATTANOOGA, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- Clarity, a division of Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), today launched Giant, an extra-loud speakerphone that provides 80 dBSPL of amplification and hands-free use. Ideal for the home office or work place, Giant fills up its space with crystal clear sound giving users the ability to have conversations from anywhere in the room.
Giant is now available for purchase at clarityproducts.com for $329.95 and sold at select retailers nationwide.
"Giant is one of the loudest speakerphones ever created," said Carsten Trads, president of Clarity. "The reason we developed Giant is because so many of us have experienced the poor sound quality of the speakerphones available in cellphones or standard home phones. So often people want an entire room to hear a conversation -- to wish Happy Birthday to a loved one or discuss details of a business venture with colleagues. Giant is one of the only phones developed specifically for this need, and we're excited to make it available to our customers."
More than just increasing the volume, Giant features digital technology that minimizes background noise and amplifies only the human voice. Through Bluetooth connectivity, it can be paired with wireless devices, including cellphones and headsets.
From a design perspective, Giant's look and feel is unlike any speakerphone on the market. Its large, color touchscreen delivers an easy-to-read font while the extra-loud ringer flashes so users never miss a call. If users are away from home, the digital answering machine makes for easy playback. Giant also features a talking keypad and talking Caller ID so users know exactly who they are calling or who is calling them. Additionally, the speakerphone is expandable with up to four handsets from Clarity's XLC series.
To enhance customer service, Giant is equipped with ClarityLogic, an innovative technology through which Clarity technicians can remotely access and make adjustments to a user's device. Clarity representatives can adjust the volume, program the phonebook and make upgrades -- all remotely.
Giant is based on Clarity's Fortissimo speakerphone. For more information, visit www.clarityproducts.com.
