Jabra has announced the shipment of its Jabra JX10 designer Bluetooth headset. Created especially by Danish design company Jacob Jensen, the Jabra JX10 is set to establish a standard in Bluetooth headset design.
Available in a silver colour, the Jabra JX10 is among the smallest and lightest headsets in the industry. It weighs less than 10 grams (one ounce) and measures less than four centimetres (one and a half inches) in length. Fitting securely either with or without the thin ear-hook, users will barely notice they are wearing it.
“The Jabra JX10 lives up to our three main design philosophies that form should follow feelings, the noise should be taken out of technology, and that every product should have a feel of magic about it. When people put on the Jabra JX10 they will feel as though they are putting on a piece of jewellery, not just a Bluetooth headset,” said Timothy Jacob Jensen, chief designer, Jacob Jensen Design.
“No longer seen as niche, Bluetooth mobile headsets are now experiencing mass market acceptance with consumers seeking headsets that go beyond functionality and act as an enhancement to their own appearance,” said Andrew Doyle, country manager, Jabra UK & Ireland. “We have already had fantastic feedback from our partners in the industry and are confident that the Jabra JX10 will boost the popularity and adoption of Bluetooth headsets even further.”
Mobile phone calls can be voice-activated, answered and ended directly from the headset using controls located on the side of the headset.
The headset uses Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, which reduces background noise. The Jabra JX10 compensates for noisy surroundings by automatically adjusting the volume control so that conversations will be heard more clearly.
The Jabra JX10 comes equipped with a matching silver desktop charging cradle. For added convenience, the Jabra JX10 also comes with a USB charging cable so that it can be directly charged from a PC or laptop. In addition, the Jabra JX10 has a special carrying case for safe and convenient storage when not in use.
The rechargeable battery offers up to 6 hours talk time and 200 hours standby, while a multi-coloured LED light indicates status on Bluetooth, battery and charging. The Bluetooth 1.2 compatibility supports headset and hands-free profiles.
The Jabra JX10 will be available at selected retail outlets across the United Kingdom from the end of November, with a suggested price of £99.
