Plantronics Pulsar 590A Bluetooth Headset ReviewWed, May 03, 2006 - 12:00 AM
Using the headset with an AV System
We wanted to experience wireless freedom when listening to our AV system so we took the Pulsar 590A for a quick tour with some of our favorite AV devices. It was incredibly easy to hook up the 3.5″ stereo jack to my AV receiver and get in my own wireless world. The volume on the headset was very good and the stereo sound was far superior to that of the Moto HT820. If you are an audiophile like me, you will appreciate hearing your CDs and DVD Audio using the Plantronics set. Don?t get me wrong, it is not the best headset that I have used ? Sony?s $250 MDR-SA3000, but it clearly does wireless very, very well.
We used this same setup for a number of different devices; a portable DVD player; an Apple iPod; playing NBA Live 2006 on a Sony PSP; and Mario Kart on the Nintendo DS. Each of these were designed specifically for use with headsets and work extremely well with the Pulsar 590A. For users who are looking for a dedicated wireless headset for their AV system or portable system, the Pulsar 590A ? along with its included Universal Adapter ? should work with under any situation.
