Audio quality was pretty incredible, and we think it's on par with the Jawbone 2. The voice isolation technology really helps to isolate our voice so that callers can hear us really clearly, and the echo-cancellation means we can hear our callers' just fine as well. Like with the Z9i, the V1's voice-isolation sensor has two modes--Standard and Max. Standard is for everyday situations, keeping the regular noise suppression but also maintaining the sound of the natural voice. Max is for extremely noisy situations where natural voice isn't as important as increased noise reduction. We tested both situations: one in a car, while the other was in a busy food court. Indeed, the Max mode resulted in a more robotic sounding voice, but callers could still hear us just fine.
Aside from the features mentioned, the V1 also supports call mute, call waiting, and the capability to transfer calls from the headset to the phone and vice versa.
The BlueAnt V1 has a rated battery life of 5 hours talk time and 8.3 days standby time. It also comes with a USB charging adapter as well as an AC adapter.
