VXi Corporation’s BlueParrott® B350-XT Bluetooth® headset with programmable Parrott Button™ wins prestigious 2015 CES Innovation Award in the Wireless Handset Accessories category
VXi Corporation announced that their latest Bluetooth® wireless headset, the BlueParrott® B350-XT, has been selected as a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Wireless Handset Accessories category. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories. The official announcement was made today at the 2015 CES Unveiled New York, held at New York City’s Metropolitan Pavilion.
Loud and Clear—and Customizable
The VXi BlueParrott B350-XT delivers clear, natural-sounding voice transmission, even in extremely high-noise environments. No other Bluetooth headset in the industry offers its combination of high-performance noise canceling and intelligibility—ensuring that users are both heard and understood. No matter where they go.
But what really sets the B350-XT apart is its exclusive Parrott Button™. Easily customized on the go with VXi’s BlueParrott Push-to-Talk App, the Parrott Button can be set to perform a range of functions, including mute, speed dial, launching the app, and more. By letting customers choose the function they need, the B350-XT’s programmability puts more functionality at their fingertips—and helps them keep their hands on the wheel.
A Legacy of Innovation
The B350-XT is the latest in a long line of popular—and groundbreaking—VXi BlueParrott products. The B350-XT builds on the cutting edge foundation of its predecessors, and adds a host of advanced technologies and capabilities. One-touch phone pairing using Near Field Communication (NFC) simplifies setup. Plus it offers extended range, over 24 hours of talk time, music streaming, multi-point connections and more.
“We’re very proud of the BlueParrott B350-XT,” said Mike Ferguson, president and CEO of VXi. “Being selected as a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree affirms our position as a communications technology leader and gives the B350-XT the recognition I believe it deserves. We’re looking forward to showcasing B350-XT and our other exciting new products at CES come January.”
The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present. Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.
Prior to the 2015 International CES (which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada), the BlueParrott B350-XT and other honorees will be featured at CES Unveiled New York and online at CESweb.org/Innovation.
