Griffin debuts sound-isolating Bluetooth headset

updated 06:40 pm EST, Wed January 7, 2009

SmartTalk BlueTooth

Griffin Technology has launched its latest audio offerings at Macworld with the SmartTalk Bluetooth headset. Equipped with dual-microphones in the earpiece, the device compares sounds between the two microphones to figure out what is the user's voice and what's background noise. This helps the headset filter out any unwanted background and wind noise to provide better quality sound for the listener. With the in-ear fit and sound isolation capabilities, users are also expected to receive improved inbound audio clarity.

Other features added involve replacing the usually beeps and bleeps users would hear while setting up the earpiece, for a human voice that confirms every operation. Compatibility for the headset includes any iPhone or Bluetooth-enabled phone.

Priced at $100 for the headset, a combination package containing a PowerJolt car charger is said to be available in February for $120.
