BlueAnt introduces the BlueAnt V1 voice controlled Bluetooth headset
BlueAnt Wireless Australia is launching the BlueAnt V1 Headset, the world's first fully voice controlled Bluetooth headset featuring the BlueGenie Voice Interface and BlueAnt's own Voice Isolation Technology.

The company says this is the most sophisticated and advanced headset available in the market today, possibly changing the way consumers interact with technology and providing an authentic hands-free calling experience. By sing the BlueGenie Voice Interface from Sensory, Inc., the BlueAnt V1 allows users to easily control their headset with voice commands rather than pressing multiple buttons or even looking at the phone.

Unlike other headsets that only support voice dial capabilities through a 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," Users can even ask the V1, "What can I say?" and the headset will verbally list all features available on the device.

The BlueAnt V1 is the first standalone headset on the market to incorporate the Bluetooth version 2.1 + Enhanced Data Rate specification.

The small, stylish, lightweight form-factor clips 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.

According to BlueAnt CEO, Taisen Maddern, "The V1 is by far the most advanced headset on the market today with the superior sound quality and wearability you expect from BlueAnt, enhanced by new and unique voice control capabilities. The intuitive voice interface not only appeals to technology power users, but also first-time Bluetooth headset users looking for a simple yet effective hands-free solution."

The BlueAnt V1 also incorporates dual microphones using BlueAnt's patented Voice Isolation Technology, a proprietary Digital Signal Processor (DSP) software solution. The 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 device comes with three charging options (car, phone & USB chargers) and can be paired with up to 8 Bluetooth devices. The battery can provide up to five hrs talk-time or 200 hrs standby.
