Tech Industry: Invisio Q7

1:09 /

At CES 2008, Brian Tong takes a look at the Invisio Q7, a hot, new bluetooth headset which uses bone conduction, a technology that pulls from the vibrations running along your jaw.

[ music ] ^M00:00:05 [ background music ] >> What's up guys? I'm Brian Tong here at the CNET stage at CES 2008. I've got a hot new Bluetooth headset in my hand, it's called the Envisio Q7. Now there's a lot of headsets out there, but this actually has some different tech that makes it unique. So a lot of headsets, they have external microphones, but not the Envisio Q7. What it does is it uses a tech called bone conduction. So let's say you're on the CES floor, everything's getting crazy around you. It actually pulls from the vibrations back here, running along your jaw, and that's where it gets the sound. So that's really unique and hot. Now if we look in here under the camera, you also see this little, kind of like, they call it the soft spring. It's a little almost rubber claw. And the way I put it into my ear is I kind of bend it down, pop it in, and it feels great. Like I was kind of skeptical when I first saw it, but once I popped it in, it feels nice. Another thing is that it has six hours of talk time. You can charge it up, it comes with a standard charger. [ background music ] And the fact that it's gonna be one forty nine, available in February. So there you have it, the Envisio Q7. I'm Brian Tong at the CNET stage, CES two double oh eight. ^M00:01:04 [ music ]
