August 27, 2008 5:32 PM | Gadgets |
BlueAnt Wireless today announced the launch of the BlueAnt V1 Headset, the world’s first and only fully voice controlled Bluetooth headset featuring the BlueGenie Voice Interface and BlueAnt’s own Voice Isolation Technology.
Unlike other headsets that only support voice dial capabilities through q mobile phone’s voice features, the V1’s voice control is embedded in the headset itself. Beyond voice dial capabilities, the V1 enables the user to control all headset features such as pairing, volume and connection status using only their voice. The V1 supports such commands as ‘Pair Me,’, ‘Redial,’ ‘Call Back,’ ‘Answer/Ignore Call,’ and ‘Call GOOG-411.’
Users can even ask the V1, “What can I say?” and the headset will verbally list all features available on the device. And say ‘Teach Me’ and the device will talk users through its functions.
The BlueAnt V1 is the first standalone headset on the market to incorporate the Bluetooth version 2.1 + Enhanced Data Rate specification. Combined with the BlueGenie Voice Interface, the BlueAnt V1 takes usability to a new level in the headset industry. The small, stylish, lightweight form-factor clips neatly onto a tie, shirt or jacket when not in use, and new Comply Foam Tips and rubber ear gels provide additional comfort and help block peripheral noise.
The BlueAnt V1 also incorporates dual microphones using BlueAnt’s patented Voice Isolation Technology, a proprietary Digital Signal Processor (DSP) software solution. Voice Isolation Technology uses advanced techniques to separate the user’s voice signal from all other sounds, enhance the voice and remove external noise coming into and out of the headset. The result is outstanding environmental noise reduction, echo cancellation and wind noise protection.
