i.Tech Dynamic announced the launch of i.VoicePRO Bluetooth
Headset which has dual microphone using Bluetooth Profile v2.1 for the delivery of professional voice quality. It comes equipped with an advanced noise filtering technology and other enhanced features. i.VoicePRO is expected to be a gold standard for wireless communication in Bluetooth Headsets.
The innovative dual microphone design which removes noises in the i.VoicePRO was designed and tuned specially for voice pickup applications. The array technology in the microphones is capable of picking up only the near-field signal, but does not pickup undesired far-field noises. The far-field signals are omitted keeping the desired nearby signal clear and clean. This allows the i.VoicePRO user to speak softly and elegantly with no need to shout.
The Voice separation technology in i-VoicePRO is a uniquely patented algorithm and an important development in hardware and software. It’s based on the physics of sound waves and the different time of arrival. The noise filter software recognizes the user voice and offers near perfect voice recognition with no distortion in spite of surrounding noise.
It’s also designed for wind resistance and speech insensitive to wind. This gives high clarity to voice at the receiver’s end. The main microphone’s surface is notched like a U for directing the user’s voice into the microphone.
Automatic volume control enables hands-free communications. The i.VoicePRO sound delivery feature make the speech intelligibility better and adjusts speaker loudness dynamically for accommodating ambient noise levels. This combination of microphone and speaker enable the hand-free operation.
i.VoicePRO headset uses the latest technology built with Bluetooth profile v2.1 and it is combined with the Bluetooth IC and enhanced data rate (EDR). i.VoicePRO offers optimum audio performance and its low power design gives 5 hours talk time and 100 hours standby time. It is designed with prism beauty and is stylish. The ear hook is ergonomically designed and the device weighs only 12g.
