BlueAnt Wireless recently released its Z9 Bluetooth headset.
The Z9 features the company's voice-isolation technology that is designed to separate the voice signal from all background noise, "enhancing and isolating all frequencies that affect voices coming in to and out of the headset and resulting in noise suppression, wind noise reduction and echo cancellation," said the company in a release.
The headset also incorporates two voice-isolation modes that a user can switch between when making a call. Voice Isolation Standard is meant for use in normal everyday environments, while Voice Isolation Max is for use in extreme-noise environments.
The Z9 weighs 0.35 ounces and measures 1.5 inches in length, the Z9 and comes equipped with a translucent ear-hook. It features dual microphones for pure speech, automatic connection and reconnection with notification, different ringtones for known and unknown contacts and firmware update via USB. It reportedly has 5.5 hours of talktime or 200 hours standby.
The Z9 has a $99.95 suggested retail price.
