Voice Assistant
This headset gives simple one-touch access to voice assistants on your device such as Siri, Google Now, and Cortana. Utilize your device’s built-in voice assistant software to get answers to important questions, place calls, send text messages, navigate to the nearest restaurant, request your favorite song, and so much more while your device stays in your pocket or bag.

Clarity issues can be a major headache, especially when trying to use a voice assistant remotely. Phone microphones simply weren’t designed to pick up sounds from afar. The Smart Assistant Headset places a microphone right against the jawline, an optimal position to clearly hear your voice every time.

Enjoy hours of talk time and days of standby operation thanks to a built-in rechargeable lithium-polymer power cell and advanced sleep states.

Three simple buttons allow you to perform a multitude of functions without ever having to take your phone out of your pocket. Please see the information below for a summary of button functionality.

Weighing in at just 7 grams and designed to be used on either ear, the headset is easily pocketed or tossed in a bag when not in use. A mesh bag is included that protects the headset and all of its combined accessories.

This headset works with all phone, tablet, and computer operating systems that support the A2DP or HSP Bluetooth profiles. This includes most versions of iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, and Linux.
