Mountain View, Calif. - Sound
ID unveiled its app-enhanced 510
Bluetooth headset, which will become available through AT&T stores
beginning June 6.

510 is optimized for Sound ID's new Earprint iPhone app. The app, available
free from the iTunes App Store, enables iPhone users to customize sound
settings to their own hearing preferences and control sound quality on both
sides of the call.
The app's Personal Sound feature
allows a user to drag an icon across the phone's screen during a call to adjust
sound quality or enhance listening levels. The user stops dragging when the
audio sounds best and the setting is automatically saved.
The headset features Sound ID's
3X NoiseNavigation, a fine scale noise-canceling algorithm and sound-processing
feature that helps eliminate background noise. It is delivered through three
internal microphones. The 510's Environmental mode amplifies surrounding sound

volume adjustment, an on/off switch that helps to conserve battery life and

Battery life is more than five
hours of talktime and 135 hours of standby time, according to the company, and

locate a misplaced headset with a press the icon. The iPhone and the headset
emit a beeping sound until located.
Sound ID CEO and president
Michael Jones told TWICE that while A2DP technology is not included yet, a
firmware upgrade will be available immediately after launch. Jones also shared
plans for versions of the Earprint app for Blackberry and Android 2.0 phones to
debut in August.
"Sound ID strives to develop the
most advanced Bluetooth products on the market, and we think the 510 paired
with the new Sound ID EarPrint app for iPhone users sets a new standard," said
Jones. "On its own, the 510 has excellent audio and noise-reduction
capabilities and is extremely comfortable. The 510 can be paired with any
Bluetooth-enabled phone, but when used with the EarPrint app, it delivers new
levels of personalization and convenience for iPhone users."
The Sound ID 510 will be
available for $129 at AT&T stores nationwide and at www.soundid.com
ships with a small universal AC travel charger, USB charging cable, clip
holster carrying case, three sizes of RealComfort EarLoops and an ear hook for
an alternative over-the-ear wearing option.
The Sound ID EarPrint app will be
available free from the App Store for iPhone 3G S, iPhone 3G and iPhone at
