Sonic Electronix providing car stereo equipment and consumer electronics announced that it is expanding the line of Bluetooth compatible products according to recent laws passed in California, New York and Washington.
The “Bluetooth laws” have driven an increase in demand for handsets and hands-free kits as the law prohibits drivers from holding phones while driving.
“Sonic Electronix added the JawBone II Bluetooth headset with noise cancellation to its lineup of headsets for use especially in vehicles, professional settings, or in noisy environments,” said Lucas Lazore, associate director at Sonic Electronix.
“Sonic Electronix is constantly expanding our product line in an effort to meet the needs of our customers, all while offering affordable prices,” added Lazore.
Aliph Jawbone comes in gold, silver and black colors and the headset features optimum noise canceling capabilities as it is equipped with NoiseAssasin technology. Bluetooth headsets like the Jawbone II enable users to talk on the cell phone while driving or when doing some other work. This is expected to increase driver functionality and responsiveness enabling a safer and more efficient lifestyle for Bluetooth users.
“The Bluetooth laws were passed because it’s a lot safer to drive in a vehicle using the Bluetooth hands-free kits,” said Sedric Arnold, marketing director at Sonic Electronix. “People who knew nothing about Bluetooth before the law was passed are now looking to add Bluetooth to their car. They will find that it is hard to beat our selection and prices on Bluetooth products.”
Sonic Electronix deals with top brands like Aliph Jawbone, Blueant, Dual, JVC, Kenwood, MoodooFree and Pioneer. This helps the company to offer Bluetooth products at competitive prices with warranty coverage. Sonic’s Bluetooth stereo lineup includes Bluetooth-ready car stereos and receivers besides in-dash head units with built-in Bluetooth hands-free capability.
The latest in-dash DVD players with built-in monitors featuring touchscreen dialing as an added convenience is also available with Sonic Electronix.
Besides these, other innovative products include Bluetooth kits and Bluetooth rearview mirrors with built-in Bluetooth for safe driving. These devices allow voice activated dialing using a digital voice to announce incoming callers. The callerID will be displayed on the rearview mirror which also enables the driver to keep his eyes on the road.
Sonic Electronix offers Bluetooth hands-free kits integrated with factory OEM stereos. Users will be able to take part in wireless conversations through the vehicle’s stereo system and also auto-mute the music or radio station when the conversation is taking place.
All these enhanced Bluetooth features are expected to make driving safe according to the new law which became effective from July 1st. The law states that drivers have to use their phone’s speakerphone, a hands-free kit or a Bluetooth headset while driving and prohibits drivers from holding a cell phone.
