Expert review by: Aoife M. McEvoy (



The BlueAnt V1 offers one feature that no other Bluetooth headset I've tested does: integrated voice control. The $130 (as of December 1, 2008) BlueAnt comes with its own voice-controlled interface, called BlueGenie. This technology, created by a...

Voice-control feature is easy to master Handy clip for attaching to clothing

No-hook option feels flimsy Dull color

If you're in a noisy environment, you can turn on the Max voice-isolation setting (by tapping the call button once), which will help remove noise and allow you to keep talking. When I had my tunes blaring louder than usual, the person on the other end...

BlueAnt V1 Voice Control


BlueAnt's stylish V1 Voice Control is a fun Bluetooth headset with novel voice-enabled controls, but competing headsets edge it out in overall sound quality.

Stylish. Lightweight. Plenty of volume. Transparent voice-enabled interface.

On the expensive side. Slightly unnatural voice timbre. Voice-dialing feature is a little buggy.

BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Headset


It's a very good Bluetooth headset for noisy environments, but we wish the voice recognition worked more consistently.

Excellent noise-canceling performance ; Good volume ; Variety of charging options ; Can pair with up to five devices at once

Loose fit ; Unreliable voice recognition

The BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Headset is one of the few noise-canceling headsets we’ve tested whose call quality rivals the Aliph Jawbone’s. The identically priced Jawbone is more comfortable, though, and still delivers slightly better voice quality....

BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Bluetooth Headset Review


Talk Bluetooth headsets and the two key names in the business are BlueAnt and Aliph. The two companies take it in turns to hold the top-spot, each trying to outdo the other with noise reduction, added features and general audio quality. For the past...

BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Headset


Cell phones have taken the world by storm and changed the face of how we do business. I can remember when I saw my first "portable" cell phone and it had to be carried around in a bag. That evolved to a Motorola "Brick" phone which my dad purchased for...

Very comfortable ; Good Noise Isolation DSP ; Good battery life ; Pairs with eight devices ; Attractive price ; Voice command reminders can be accessed by pressing the button then saying "What can I say

Voice recognition is not accurate in noisy environments

This is our third BlueAnt headset that we've looked at now and I'm glad to say it keeps getting better and better. The V1 ups the ante with voice control as well as better noise isolation and adds wind suppression to the mix. The voice control feature...

Read BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Bluetooth Headset


BlueAnt's newest headset, the V1, is a pretty unique Bluetooth headset. The feature set is almost exactly the same as BlueAnt's z9i Bluetooth headset with one major difference. The V1 is the only Bluetooth headset I could find that allows the headset...

Eliminates a lot of background noise ; Built-in clip for attaching to clothing when not being used ; 3 different charging options ; Upgradeable firmware

Voice commands need a lot of work ; Only includes ear buds that enter the ear

I had high hopes for BlueAnt’s V1 Voice Control Bluetooth headset. However, I was a bit disappointed with the results. I had problems with the voice command system on the V1 and ended up disabling them all together. The V1 does have upgradeable...

BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Bluetooth headset – Review


While I've long been a cellphone user, I've never taken to using a Bluetooth headset. Each time I see a person with one stuck in an ear, my first reaction is that they have some horrible growth on the side of their head, and why don't they get it...
