BlueAnt Q1 headset ships

BlueAnt Wireless has announced its newest Bluetooth headset, the voice controlled BlueAnt Q1. Previously introduced at CES in January, the device offers dual microphones for noise reduction, and contains multipoint support to connect two mobile phones at the same time. Containing some features found in the company's V1 headset, users can control the Q1 with their voice using the BlueGenie Natural Voice Interface. This enables them to make commands such as volume adjustment simply by saying "volume up" or "volume down."

The headset has the ability to pair with up-to eight devices, and offers roughly 4-hours of talk time or a maximum of 100-hours in standby. With the dual microphones and voice isolation technology, the device helps ensure the persons voice is heard in noisy environments, and can handle winds up to 10mph. The firmware of the headset can also be upgraded via USB cable on the users PC, and supports Bluetooth 2.1 or later, which allows users to listen to music from compatible devices.

Additional voice controls allow users to ask what the battery level is, to answer or reject phone calls, to open the settings menu, and to dial contacts. The BlueAnt Q1 is currently being shipped and is priced at $130.
