BlueAnt to launch Q1 noise cancelling headset

BlueAnt to launch Q1 noise cancelling headset
BlueAnt and their Bluetooth enabled products have achieved quite a reputable place in the market. The latest device which BlueAnt has planned to launch is named the Q1. The headset will feature a Dynamic Receive Signal Frequency Equalization, the ability to connect two phones at the same time, wind/noise reduction along with echo cancellation (enabled by the dual microphone), connections/pairing to take place automatically, auto volume control and 4 hours of talk time with 120 stand by.

Looks like that Aliph has set the bar high enough to have BlueAnt take on the Jawbone series.

The price of the headset is said to be around $129. It will be available from around summer 2009.

It looks like they are going after Jawbone here. The thing looks eerily similar to a Jawbone.

Is it A2DP? I can't believe in 2009 it is not a standard feature.

I think it is stupid that all these companies claim "Noise cancellation" and yet only one actually uses a physical technology (the VAS on the Jawbone series) to actually isolate your voice. All these other devices (blue ant, motorola, etc) only use dual mic and software to cancel the sound. Working in the industry of cell phone sales now for over 3 years I have tried them all for the most part and the only one that effectively reduces if not eliminates background noise is the jawbone. I don't know, it's just my opinion.
