Nashua, N.H. — Jabra took the wraps of its next Bluetooth headset, the Motion, mean for use in unified communication (UC) environments.
The device features motion sensors that let users answer calls by picking up the headset, adjust the volume while walking using intelligent noise control, and turn it off by placing it down. It has a foldable boom, behind-the-ear design and nearfield communications (NFC) pairing. The speaker can be rotated for left- or right-ear wearing, and three sizes of ear gels are included.
Talk time will be up to seven hours, with standby time up to 15 days. Other features include spoken caller announcement, “busylight” indicator to avoid interruptions, mute button, Jabra’s Noise Blackout 3.0 technology, digital signal processing and a USB adapter.
Jabra has partnered with Microsoft for its Lync UC platform. Giovanni Mezgec, general manager for Lync product marketing at Microsoft said of the Motion: “We are pleased to have Jabra onboard with the Jabra Motion for the new Microsoft Lync 2013. Jabra's long history in UC and their knowledge about audio perfection and innovative design will add value to the end-user experience of Lync customers.”
