Product Description

Amazon.com

BlueAnt's V1 is the world's first voice-controlled Bluetooth headset, allowing you to control most phone functions from the headset thanks to the integrated BlueGenie Voice Interface. Talk to it and it will reply, ask it for assistance and it will assist you in getting the right function. This amazingly small and lightweight headset eliminates the combinations of button pushes, button holds and flashing lights synonymous with advanced Bluetooth devices. One activation button provides you with total control of the V1's entire function menu system via an easy to use voice interface.



Control your phone's functions--including answering and making call--with the BlueAnt V1.
No longer will you have to deal with lengthy or confusing button pressing to access functionality on your cell phone. Instead, the V1 can be controlled with simple phrases like "pair headset," "call home," "volume up" and "accept call." And BlueGenie's voice synthesis capability enables the V1 to speak back to you, letting you know device settings including successful pairing of the headset, battery power level, and more. With voice dial and call answering capabilities, drivers can keep their hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road.

The V1 also incorporates dual microphones allowing for BlueAnt's patented Voice Isolation Technology, a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) software solution that uses advanced techniques to separate the user's voice signal from all other sounds, enhancing and isolating all frequencies that affect voices coming into and out of the headset. This results in outstanding environmental noise reduction, echo cancellation and wind noise protection.

The BlueAnt V1 works with Bluetooth version 2.1. Automatic reconnect also finds the last cell phone or device paired, and automatically reconnects. It includes several ear gels for an optimal in-ear fit, as well as an over-the-ear clip for added security. It also offers an innovative tie clip lets you attach the V1 headset to your shirt or cuff when not in use.

  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Multi-function car and desk charger
  • USB Charger
  • Up to 6 hrs talk-time or 200 hrs standby
  • 2 year replacement warranty

Voice command is great & sound quality is very good.
John Stovall
First off, I called Blueant customer service before I ordered it and was told on different occasions by them on the phone that the V1 worked with call waiting.
Mark A. Stafford
Speed dial via voice commands prevents distraction from car driving for phone calls to favorite numbers.

UPDATE - after 18 months the earpiece on my BlueAnt V1 broke... BUT they sent me a free replacement!

Nothing lasts forever, right? So when the earpiece on my V1 headset began to separate from the body, I was disappointed, but figured I got my money's worth. So I went ahead and bought a replacement from Amazon cuz I still love this headset -- it's the best I've used, bar none. But before my replacement even arrived, I remembered BlueAnt offers a 2 year warranty, so I called them up on a whim and explained the problem and they gave me an RA number. I mailed my broken V1 in and about 1 week later, they sent me a free replacement in full retail packaging!!! By now, the replacement I ordered form Amazon arrived but I decided to keep both and save one as a spare. Moral of the story - BlueAnt has awesome customer service and is the V1 is still the best in my book!

And now back to my original review...

This headset is amazing!! I bought this primarily for the noise and echo canceling feature and I have to say it works like a charm. I checked out other noise & echo canceling headsets like the Motorola H710 but it looks exactly like my H700 which in my opinion has big design flaws. Motorola should've done more to upgrade the headset's look and function. As it is, the 710 is just a boring retread. But what really sold me on the BlueAnt was the dual microphones.

I've done a lot of recording work and know how difficult it can be to eliminate ambient noise, so the concept of dual mics was a revolutionary idea that made total sense to me. Liken it to having two eyes - you can see everything with just one, but when you look with both eyes, there's more depth, clarity and accuracy with what you're seeing.

I spend around 2000 minutes per month on my phone for work, mostly with an BT earpiece stuck in my ear. My previous earpiece was the Jabra JX10 (1st gen), and it was a small device that worked really well most of the time. After a couple weeks of using the V1, I can say the same about this headset. I had some initial issues with sound clarity (re-pairing helped) and with keeping it in my ear reliably (removed the black nub used for the over-ear plastics).

I am not a fan of plastic over my ear, and with the Jabra I was able to use Jabra softgels to put that earpiece in my ear - and it stayed all day if I wanted. With the BlueAnt V1, I had to work harder but finally found the solution. Softgels don't fit, and the included Comply soft tips alone were not enough. I use Comply tips with Shure headphones on my iPod, so I am already fine with foam in my ear. However, I couldn't get the foam tips far enough in my ears to stay put. Once I took off the black rubber nub that sits in the middle of the nice-idea-but-useless-in-practice 'tie clip,' I am finally able to get the V1 to stay in my apparently cavernous ear. That nub simply kept me from getting the last little bit I needed for the Comply foam to stay put.

As a user for a couple of years, I know these Comply tips wear out with any kind of regular use. They are dirt magnets no matter how clean you try to keep them and your ear, and so far they are not available from BlueAnt at the site mentioned in the included documentation. It's a very new product, so that's fair, I just hope they get them out soon. Contacting Comply directly has not elicited a response, although these tips seems to have the same larger hole as the Whoomp Earbud Enhancers for the iPod's standard mediocre earbuds.

Had about about 5 days now and I can say this is a BIG STEP forward over my previous headsets.

It takes a little getting use to but once you do the voice commands and all the helpful voice prompts make it so much more user friendly and accessible. It walks you through the pairing process by talking to you, then you can just say "Teach Me" a few times and it lets you practice the commands. They start to stick after 3 or 4 times of this. You can always ask it "What Can I Say" if you forget. You can do this all while driving, nothing you have to read and memorize the user guide for. Recognition accuracy seems good if you use the commands it asks you to use. Doesn't seem to work if you say "Battery" instead of "Check Battery"

I got extremely annoyed when trying to make calls with my old headset only to find out it had lost its connection and could not get it reconnected when driving. This thing tells you when its connected, and you just have to ask it "Am I connected" if you are unsure which will cause it to connect if it isn't already. 10x easier than having to stop and fiddle with buttons. Redial, Call Back are particularly useful voice commands as I seem to drop calls frequently and this makes it easy to reconnect quickly. I put my wife cell as "Call Favorite" and home # as "Call Home" so makes this much easier and quicker than using voice dial on phone for those 2 numbers which are half my calls. I haven't bothered to setup all the speed dial voice commands yet as I'm not sure I could remember the numbers. You can start Dial by name on your phone with a certain command, "Phone Commands" I believe.

The audible Caller ID and handsfree voice answer or ignore is pretty cool too.
