Sound ID Launches New Bluetooth Headsets with Personalized Sound

Sound ID has announced the expansion of its Personal Sound System product line with the availability of the PSS-SoundFlavors and PSS-SoundMate. Leveraging the power of Bluetooth wireless technology and Sound ID's in-depth knowledge of how the human ear processes sound, the devices break new ground in the Bluetooth arena delivering wire-free connectivity convenience while simultaneously addressing users' specific hearing preferences.

Following in the footsteps of the PSS-Pro, PSS-SoundFlavors and PSS-SoundMate are designed for consumers looking to enhance sound quality in-person and in mobile phone conversations. Ready to use, right out-of-the box, the stylish and ergonomically designed devices ensure that consumers experience enhanced sound with maximum comfort and convenience.

Bringing new clarity to in-person and on-the-go mobile communications, PSS-SoundFlavors and PSS-SoundMate eliminate background and wind noise through the use of Sound ID's proprietary technologies Adaptive Noise Compensation, Voice Capture and Wind Noise Managements. All Sound ID Personal Sound Systems include a Bluetooth-enabled EarModule and a dual charging base, which will also accommodate the optional Bluetooth-enabled CompanionLink microphone.

SoundFlavors optimizes sound for each user's hearing preferences. Simply select from one of three self-adjustable "sound flavor" profiles. SoundFlavors options include: Mild sound enhancement, Mild to moderate sound enhancement and Moderate sound enhancement.

SoundFlavors operates in four modes:
- Amplification Mode Offering enhancement of sounds in your environment via use of a pre-configured SoundFlavors profile.
- Phone Mode Amplifying on-the-go conversations when paired with a Bluetooth-enabled handset.
- CompanionLink Mode Worn on a partner's lapel or placed on a table, CompanionLink dramatically improves one-on-one and group discussions in noisy backgrounds and is excellent for enhancing TV listening.
- One2One Mode Pairing two EarModules improves one-to-one speech intelligibility in adverse listening environments.
