What does it all mean?  

We have provided in simple terms what the acronyms mean and how they benefit you.

 

Microphones – The more microphones you have the better.  With each additional microphone sensing background noise, your headset can better identify your voice making your call more clear to your caller.

A2DP = Advanced Audio Distribution Profile lets you listen to music through your Bluetooth headset when connected to your mobile phone or mp3 player.

HFP = Hands Free Profile is what allows voice dialing activation, redial, call transfer and call answer/end capabilities.

DSP = Active Digital Signal Processing allows for seamless and pleasant wireless conversation regardless of environment.

Wideband = Gives you a clearer more natural sound to your voice.

NFC pairing = Near Field Communication allows for quick pairing of devices when active and in near proximity

Caller Announce = Will tell you who is calling from your mobile phones contact list.

Voice Alerts (Whispers) = You will hear the headset say power on, power off, talk time, battery low and so forth….

Voice Commands = You can tell the headset what you want it to do from a list of commands, like answer or ignore tone incoming call.
