, a leading provider of technology for personal audio products, announced the release of the nXZEN VoIP headset, its newest Bluetooth product offering. The nXZEN VoIP headset system is a Skype certified combination of Gennum's nXZEN 5000 extreme noise-cancelling Bluetooth headset with the new nXZEN USB audio dongle. Together, this nXZEN pair creates a powerful, plug-and-play VoIP solution that brings both the simplicity of Bluetooth and Gennum's extreme noise cancellation technology to IP telephony users.
The nXZEN VoIP headset system takes just minutes to implement and allows call answer/terminate and last number redial up to 10m (33ft) from the PC. In addition, the nXZEN dongle eliminates the need to install Bluetooth drivers directly on one's PC. The headset can be paired with multiple devices and offers a full seven hours of talk time and 100 hours of standby to accommodate
any user's VoIP and Bluetooth enabled mobile phone needs.
Furthermore, the nXZEN VoIP headset incorporates the newest version of the industry leading extreme noise cancellation technology found in Gennum's nXZEN 5000 headset. The nXZEN VoIP headset combines an integrated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) that can process more than 120 Million Instructions per Second (MIPS) with Gennum's patented FRONTWAVE EXTREME(TM) technology which utilizes a two-microphone array to sample two separate points in space. A custom engineered algorithm in the DSP creates a hyper-directional 'near field' pick-up beam to target the speaker's voice and cancel the signal created by all environmental noise. Users are able to make calls in loud settings where phone conversations would previously have been impossible, all while retaining natural voice inflections and eliminating unwanted noise.
"As communication options continue to expand, with Skype and other broadband telephony providers gaining a substantial user base, the demand for wireless VoIP headsets is growing," said Gora Ganguli, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Audio and Wireless Products Division, Gennum. "Bluetooth unties the VoIP user from the PC and provides the freedom to multi-task while the advanced audio processing and noise cancellation technologies in the nXZEN VoIP headset enhance mobility by providing users with the best audio communications experience whether they're using their computer in noisy places or at home."
Look for the nXZEN VoIP headset at online and in-store retailers where nXZEN headsets are sold.
