Bluetooth News: iVoice Releases the Baby-ai BT Headset and R1 BT Car Kit
      #32119 - 12/13/08 02:23 PM

iVOICE Technologies enters the mobile marketplace with the announcement of its new R1 Bluetooth Handsfree Kit and Baby-ai Dual Mic Bluetooth Headset. Using the Bluetooth Profile v 2.1, the R1 and Baby-ai incorporate iVOICE technology for advanced noise cancellation, multi-microphone noise suppression and echo reduction. Here is more info on these Bluetooth products:

The R1 Bluetooth Handsfree Kit is an advanced solution for hands-free calling when in the car. The R1 portable visor speakerphone is compatible with all Bluetooth enabled cell phones and provides a talk time of up to 30 hours on a single charge. The R1 can be paired with up to eight devices at once and supports two simultaneous Bluetooth connections through iVOICE iCONNECT 2 technology. In Isolation Mode, the microphone picks up only the voice from the driver?s seat and the background noise in the passenger areas is eliminated. When in MobileConference Mode, the microphone array is 360 degrees and picks up all voices in the calling environment. The R1 utilizes a 3 watt speaker, making the product loud enough to hear callers in various driving conditions. The sleek and compact R1 comes packaged with a mini-USB power adapter, car adapter and wall adapter for charging.

The Baby-ai is a light, dual microphone, noise cancellation headset solution that works in synergy - with one microphone to optimize speech intelligibility and the other to remove background noise. With a modern teardrop design, the Baby-ai has a talk time up to six hours and a standby time of 200 hours. The Baby-ai can be paired with up to eight Bluetooth devices and, through iCONNECT 2 technology, can connect to two mobile phones simultaneously. The Baby-ai includes three different size sets self-stabilizing silicon ear gels for better noise filtration and a comfortable fit. Like the R1, the Baby-ai also comes packaged with a mini-USB power adapter, car adapter and wall adapter.

The iVOICE Technology incorporated in the R1 and Baby-ai is a highly-directional remote signal pickup system that uses the vector characteristics of signals to find and capture the clear, clean voice while ignoring the noisy portion of the signals. Equipped with dual microphones, the software inside the R1 and Baby-ai enables a natural, high-quality and bi-directional conversation with acoustic echo cancellation and full duplex control. This patent technology dynamically controls and processes an incoming voice and the echo, as well as the noise signal power levels, to deliver clear and natural audio.

The R1 and Baby-ai feature iNTELLIGENT VOICE OPERATOR technology, which reports the Caller ID phone number of the caller when the cell phone rings, as well as Voice Guided technology, which provides user-friendly voice prompts to guide consumers when pairing with a mobile phone.

The R1 and Baby-ai are now available in a variety of colors at J&R stores ( and online at, and The R1 Bluetooth Handsfree Kit retails for $99 and the Baby-ai retails for $79. For more information, please visit
