BlueAnt says its V1 headset is the world’s first Bluetooth headset that is fully voice controlled for true hands-free cell phone operation. Built-in voice dial capabilities include redial, call-back and answer/ignore modes. Headset features such as pairing, volume and connection status also are voice-controlled, as is a “teach-me” feature that talks users through all functions. Dual microphones are harnessed to voice isolation circuitry to enhance the caller’s voice and reduce environmental noise and echoes. The headset weighs just 1/3 oz.
The suggested retail price is $129.95. Contact BlueAnt, Dept. FIN, 45 Belden Pl., Level 2, San Francisco, CA 94104, 866/891-3032.
