Jabra announced their 8th generation behind-the-ear bluetooth headset. The new Jabra Motion offers a combination of motion sensors and intelligent microphones, which automatically adapts to the sound environment and adjusts to ensure the optimal and clear sound throughout a conversation, whether in a noisy office or on the road. The headset registers any movement instantly; when you pick up the headset – the call is answered simultaneously; when you start walking, the speaker volume is automatically adjusted; just as it will turn off and takes a power nap when laid down. Dual Microphones with Noise Blackout have an aggressive noise filter utilizing Digital Signal Processing (DSP) software to remove noise.
For the Jabra Motion, the Jabra design team opted for the ‘behind-the-ear’ circular shape; mimicking the back of the ears’ semi-circle shape; a simplistic, yet aesthetic design element. The folding boom adds “pocketability” – the ability to carry it in a pocket without breaking the boom arm – a key feature in the new design. The folding boom is at the same time used to take and end calls with a simple flip of the boom arm.
Jabra Motion will keep you up to speed and in touch, any time and everywhere – it intuitively follows your every move and with the latest Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for fast pairing, you simply tap the headset with your NFC enabled devices to connect.

The Jabra Motion will be available in two additional models with unified communications which come with a nano-sized USB adaptor for full integration with your PC using Microsoft Lync or Skype. When used with your UC client you get full integration, including automatic updating of your UC presence status when on a smartphone call. The headset’s Busylight indicator also ensures that you avoid interruptions.
The Jabra Motion features the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology with 7 hours of talk time, and up to 360 hours of standby time. Recharging takes up to 2 hours.
