This is a new and interesting alliance which includes the Quiksilver and Roxy brands and Plantronics which is recognized as a leader of Bluetooth voice and stereo technology. On a side note: In 1969, a Plantronics headset carried the historic first words from the moon: â€œThatâ€™s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.â€
