Gennum today announced the release of the nX6000 Bluetooth headset. The nX6000 is an evolution in headset design that incorporates industry-leading noise cancellation technology previously introduced in Gennum's nXZEN Bluetooth headset.
Stylish, small and comfortable, the nX6000 introduces new features and functions to the Gennum headset lineup that make the headset both easy to use and versatile.
In step with advances in Bluetooth standards, nX6000 adopts Bluetooth version 2.0. The new design utilizes a standard mini-B-USB charge port, providing a common charging solution and the ability to "future proof" the headset. With this element, Gennum plans to allow users to download features to the headset from the company's website after purchase. Users will also be able to monitor battery charge levels with a multicolored LED battery status indicator located around the USB port.
The nX6000 introduces a new multifunction button design, allowing the user to quickly and easily access the most commonly used features of the headset. In response to constructive feedback from nXZEN users, Gennum has significantly improved the nX6000 volume control.
The headset includes Gennum?s patented FRONTWAVE Extreme TM noise cancellation algorithm, running on Gennum?s custom Digital Signal Processor (DSP), which processes more than 120 million instructions per second (MIPS). FRONTWAVE Extreme TM is now combined with Digital Voice IsolationTM, a dual microphone array that isolates the user?s voice from ambient noise so callers can hear each other clearly even in the loudest environments. The combination of these two technologies creates a hyper-directional near field pick-up beam that targets the speaker?s voice and eliminates background noise. The technology works to cancel the complex noise found in noisiest situations, such as factories, while retaining natural voice inflections.
?The technology behind the Bluetooth market has developed dramatically over the past three years,? said Don Shaver, Director of Product Development Audio and Wireless Division, at Gennum. ?The nX6000 is Gennum?s answer to this growth, designed to meet the evolution of style and fit and deliver function for the future of the headset industry. Its comfort, superior noise cancellation, and stylish design make the nX6000 the solution for mobile users in most any environment, be it sporting events, crowded malls, driving with the windows open or factory floors.?
The nX6000 headset?s weight has been dramatically reduced to 10.9 grams and offers six hours of talk time and 90 hours of standby time. The headset has slimmer removable ear loops that are compatible with eyeglasses and improved ear tip design to increase comfort.
Look for the nX6000 headset at online and in-store retailers where nXZEN headsets are sold.
