V1

 

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

 

We've grown to be pretty big fans of BlueAnt headsets over the past year, especially with the BlueAnt Z9 and the BlueAnt Z9i . Both Bluetooth headsets impressed us with excellent sound quality, while the Z9i improved upon the original with extra...

The BlueAnt V1 is the world's first voice-controlled headset. It does not require voice recognition training and is easy to comprehend and use. The built-in capability to call GOOG-411 is a nice bonus. The audio quality is excellent, with top-notch...

The BlueAnt V1 doesn't feel secure without the ear hook, and the ear tip may fit a little too deep in the ear for some people. Its design is also a little on the boring side.

The BlueAnt V1 may not wow us designwise, but its voice controls and excellent audio quality more than make up for it.

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...

What’s revolutionary about the BlueAnt V1 is the BlueGenie voice control engine. Nothing else on the market can come close to it, and that’s backed up with sound quality that’s the equal of Aliph’s Jawbone 2. If we had any criticism, it would be about...

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...

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...

Product Specifications

BlueAnt's V1 Voice Controlled Bluetooth Headset introduces the revolutionary BlueGenie Voice User Interface, letting you control most functions with the sound of your voice. Amazingly, the headset will actually talk back to you too! Pushing one button activates the voice recognition technology and gives you control of all the functions of the V1, just by talking. If you need assistance, ask for it and the headset will verbally help you get the commands you want.
