Poly Headsets Have A Winning History

In the 1960s the airline industry had a problem. The headsets available were just too big and heavy to be practical and airline pilots were using handheld microphones rather than the uncomfortable headsets available at the time.

They needed something better to be hands-free, yet wearable with comfort. 

Two pilots in the industry decided to create headsets that actually delivered ease of use and the safety of hands-free technology. They managed to create a set that was basically small hearing aid style transducers attached to a headband, and their creation was approved by United Airlines.

The two pilots decided to incorporate their small business and Plantronics was born in 1961.

Their innovative headsets were produced for the aviation market in 1962. In just a few more years, Poly was the lone manufacturer of headsets to American air traffic controllers, and also supplied headsets to Bell Telephone operators (the early days of call centers).

The First Headset On The Moon!

In 1961, one of the founders of Plantronics was tapped by a NASA astronaut to design a communications headset to be used in the spacecraft Mercury. Plantronics formed an offshoot division they named SPENCOMM, Space Environmental Communications. This division designed a usable and wearable microphone headset in just 11 days that were to be used for the Mercury-Atlas 8 endeavor. These headsets were later used for the Apollo missions, and are still used in NASA to this day. In fact, Neil Armstrong spoke through a Plantronics headset as he stepped onto the moon.

Plantronics began going wire-free as early as the 1980s and entered the gaming industry with headsets for consoles in the 1990s. It has been a history-making company since its very inception!


An Evolving Workplace Calls For Evolving Headsets And An Evolving Corporation
