New Bluetooth(R) Headset for Professionals on the Go



    COPENHAGEN, Sept. 16 /CNW/ - Sennheiser Communications' latest
Bluetooth(R) headset, the VMX Office, raises the bar for sound quality, safety
and comfort, putting it into a class of its own. But it is ease-of-use that
makes the VMX Office really stand out, promising to make it the headset of
choice for the new generation of mobile workers.

    According to a recent survey(1), a quarter of the world's workforce will
be 'mobile workers' by 2009. To help professionals on the go feel connected to
their company and their colleagues, it's crucial that they are equipped with
the right communication tools. A typical 'road warrior kit' includes a mobile
phone, a laptop and a secure remote access to the corporate network - and one
headset to connect to all those communication devices, keeping calls
hands-free and easy to manage.
    Because the VMX Office connects via a base station to landline phones,
computers and Bluetooth(R) mobile phones, it is the only headset the mobile
worker needs, even if much of the working day is spent on the move. As Guido
Karbautzki, Sennheiser Communications' Head of Sales and Marketing
Communications, says "Now that more and more people are dividing their time
between desk and travel, they're becoming more reliant on mobile phones and
VoIP applications running on their notebooks. This emerging 'mobile worker'
demographic has a clear need for one headset that connects with everything."

    Comfort calls

    Thanks to a lightweight, well-balanced design the VMX Office is
comfortable to wear throughout the working day, making it especially suited to
heavy telephone or VoIP users. And compatibility with Bluetooth(R) 1.0, 1.1
and 2.0 makes it easy to toggle between desk phone, mobile phone and PC,
allowing users to make hands-free calls up to 35 meters away from their
nearest device.
    With just one button, the VMX Office is simple to use - essential to the
majority of headset users who want to set up and use their headset quickly.
The single button switches between phone and mobile devices, and controls
volume. The headset powers up automatically when opened, and switches off when
closed - so there's no need to worry about limited standby time.

    Sound control

    Mobile workers who wear their headset all day need to feel confident they
are protected from sudden loud or high-pitched noises. The VMX Office's
ActiveGard(TM) automatically reduces surges in volume in milliseconds - too
quickly for the human ear to detect. And because VoiceMax(TM) dampens
intrusive background noise and enhances the human voice, the VMX Office is
ideal for modern, open offices, too, so users never have to raise their voice
during a call. This means noise levels in a busy, open-plan office never
become intrusive - keeping stress levels low and productivity high.
    The VMX Office builds on the success of its sister headset, the VMX 100.
But while the VMX 100 is strictly for mobile phones, the VMX Office is
designed for both office and mobile use, making it perfect for busy
professionals and mobile workers. Guido Karbautzki explains "After the
successful launch of the VMX 100 headset last year, it was a logical step to
introduce an office version offering the same outstanding wearing comfort, but
with some extra bells and whistles."
    Due for general release in September, the VMX Office will finally give
professionals who make a lot of calls - and value their comfort and hearing -
a headset that does it all, no matter what device they use, or where they are.
