BlueAnt T1 Headset Is Super Rugged, Super Smart
The latter company has just introduced a new Bluetooth headset today, and unlike most of the others, this one actually has something to differentiate it. The T1 is actually "rugged," boasting "groundbreaking durability and wind noise reduction" that isn't found on most "normal' headsets. It's the first headset the company has shipped with Wind Armour Technology, which is described as the following: this solution combines patent-pending design features with BlueAnt’s proprietary noise cancellation software to deliver clear audio in wind speeds up to 22 mph—the best wind noise reduction of any Bluetooth headset on the market.
As for durability, the T1 features removable and interchangeable patent-pending, soft-touch silicon covers that protect and cushion the headset from minor bumps and accidental impact. The smarts continue on as well, as the T1 is also the first and only Bluetooth headset to offer caller name announce, so you will always know who is calling because the T1 will read out the name of the incoming caller. Responding to the call is as easy as saying the words “Answer” or “Ignore,” leaving the user hands free to focus on their task at hand. The Text To Speech engine will store up to 2,000 phone book entries per paired device for caller name announce. The T1 also offers A2DP for streaming audio of podcasts and turn-by-turn directions from GPS applications on your mobile phone.
No price has been listed, but given just how robust this is, we doubt it will be cheap.
