BlueAnt Wireless Releases Z9 Bluetooth Headset

BlueAnt Wireless has released the Z9 Bluetooth Headset as part of the company's first step into the global distribution of its products. The Z9 leads the next generation of Bluetooth headsets with its stylish design and use of dual microphone, noise reduction technology via BlueAnt's patented Voice Isolation Technology, a revolutionary proprietary Digital Signal Processor software solution. Voice Isolation Technology uses sophisticated techniques 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.

In addition, the Z9 incorporates two 'Voice Isolation' modes that a user can switch between when making a call 'Voice Isolation Standard' for use in normal everyday environments providing a natural sounding voice while removing mild background noise and 'Voice Isolation Max' to provide superior intelligible voice clarity for use in extreme noise environments.

Weighing in at only 0.35 ounces and measuring just 1.5 inches in length, the Z9 is also one of the smallest Bluetooth headsets on the market today. It can be clipped neatly onto a tie, shirt, blouse or cuff when not in use and comes equipped with a stylish, translucent ear-hook further reducing its presence when worn.
