Continuing its mission to build a new category of Bluetooth Headsets that improve speech intelligibility in noisy environments, Sound ID today introduced the Sound ID 200 Bluetooth Headset.
The Sound ID 200, ergonomically designed for all-day wearing comfort, follows in the footsteps of its predecessors and offers functionality unique to Sound ID products, such as NoiseNavigation, which provides clear audio through the reduction of background noise thanks to dual adaptive beam-forming microphones and sound isolation algorithms. Additionally the headset, which is styled in a tactile soft-touch cobalt-blue material, offers Automatic Volume Control for seamless volume adjustment depending on a user’s environment.
“We’re excited to launch the Sound ID 200, as we believe it’s comfortable fit, compact size and easy-to-use features are qualities that today’s consumers are looking for,” said Michael Jones, President and CEO of Sound ID. “Most importantly, the 200 delivers the proprietary sound-enhancing features that make our headsets the best on the market for hands-free conversations in noisy mobile environments.”
