Phone News: Griffin Technology Launches SmartTalk Bluetooth Headset
      01/06/09 07:54 PM

Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod and iPhone, today announced the SmartTalk Bluetooth headset. This new headset from Griffin incorporates STEP Labs' STEPvoice(TM) acoustic voice separation technology to eliminate background noise, reduce wind noise, and improve voice quality. This means phenomenally clear, hands-free conversations, even under noisy, real-world conditions.

The SmartTalk Bluetooth earpiece can be easily paired with iPhone or any Bluetooth-enabled phone. Human voice confirmations tell the user that the device is "Pairing," "Powered On," and other helpful functions.

STEP Labs technology uses the physics of sound propagation to define the shape and arrival time of sound waves to isolate voice signals from undesired noises. STEP Labs' software uses these distinctions to tell the difference between the user's voice and other voices, sounds, and noises, preserving the natural fidelity of the voice without distortion and producing near-perfect voice recognition performance, and impeccable noise cancellation.

SmartTalk Bluetooth Features and Benefits:
  • STEPvoice acoustic technology eliminates unwanted noise for outbound voice clarity (making you sound good to your callers)
  • STEPsound Intelligent Speaker Technology automatically enhances voice intelligibility & speech enunciation for the wearer (making your callers sound good to you)
  • Industry-leading 30 to 50 decibel improvement in signal-to-noise ratios
  • Dual-microphone acoustic design by STEP Labs
  • In-ear fit guarantees inbound audio clarity
  • Instant pairing with voice prompts for quick and easy setup
  • No extra power requirements for long battery life and talk time

Griffin's new SmartTalk Bluetooth headset will be available at major retailers and on Griffin's website in two varieties:
  • SmartTalk Bluetooth $99.99 - now shipping
  • SmartTalk Bluetooth with PowerJolt car charger $119.99 - available February '09
