Launched: Jabra SUPREME, first Bluetooth mono headset with Active Noise Cancellation technology

Jabra, a GN Netcom brand today announced the launch of SUPREME – world’s first Bluetooth mono (non-stereo) headset to incorporate Active Noise Cancellation. This, coupled with digital signal processing (DSP), proprietary Noise Blackout 3.0 and Wind-Noise Reduction technology, allow exceptional audio quality at both ends to heavy users of hands-free communication, irrespective of the noise environments they are in. 

jabraActive Noise Cancellation uses one dedicated microphone and an electronic chipset to generate an “anti-noise” sound, removing ambient noise around the user that he would otherwise hear as well. The end result for the user is call quality that is excellent in sound no matter the noise setting he happens to be in. Before Jabra SUPREME, Active Noise Cancellation was been available only in high-end stereo headphones. While Active Noise Cancellation eliminates ambient sound on the caller’s end while receiving a call, Jabra’s latest generation of Noise Blackout™ technology included in Jabra SUPREME – Noise Blackout 3.0 – dramatically reduces background noise that is transmitted to the caller on the other end of the line, so the caller also hears you better and clearer.

Working in combination with the new patent-pending Wind-Noise Reduction technology developed for calls in outdoor, windy conditions, Jabra SUPREME promises the best-sounding conversation possible on both ends. Jabra has invented a unique new way of reducing wind noise by ‘capsuling’ the dual microphones in the boom arm tip. The capsule is made of foam, letting all sound waves through, but stopping almost all wind. That leaves the microphones in a wind dead chamber, only focusing on capturing the voice.

Jabra SUPREME with black leather finish preferred by most users, features a patented boom arm that ‘flips’, enabling users to power on and off by simply flipping the headset open and closed. This advanced design combined with a state-of-the-art adjustable ear hook and selection of ear cushions makes for one of the most comfortable and easiest headset carrying solutions in the market. What’s more, it is equipped with a 24mm speaker for powerful sound.

Jabra SUPREME is HD voice ready as well. Being HD voice ready will ensure that the conversations sound as natural as if the user is standing right next to the person he is talking to. As and when the mobile operators start offering high-definition (HD) voice on their networks, it shall be able to deliver rich, crisp and clear HD voice with just a simple software upgrade while other Bluetooth products would require hardware changes to achieve the same.

Voice Control: With Jabra SUPREME, users can make, answer, end, redial, ignore and reject a call (even call back) via their voice. They just have to say the right function-related word like “Call Dad”, “Answer”, “Ignore” etc., to enjoy complete hands free communication.

Voice Guidance: Users get to hear the name of the caller (for example, “Mom Cell”, “David’s Office” etc.), exactly how they have stored the name in their phone. If the caller’s number is not stored in the phone, Jabra SUPREME shall read out the phone number. It says “Connected” as and when it pairs with the mobile phone. In fact, it even guides you through to the set-up or the pairing process. It says “Low Battery” when it needs to be charged.

Using the advanced MultiuseTM technology, it can connect to 2 Bluetooth devices simultaneously. With its A2DP capabilities, it can stream multimedia content and GPS application data from your phone. Single swipe of a finger is all it takes to adjust (increase /decrease) the volume through a touch sensor placed on top. The device can be upgraded as well and when new firmware is announced by Jabra through the in-built micro-USB port on top near the volume control. On one side it has StatusDisplayTM – that shows the battery as well as Bluetooth connectivity status. It has 6 hours of talk time and 15 days of standby time.
