SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aliph, a leading developer of mobile audio products that deliver the best user experience in any environment, today announced that its Jawbone® Bluetooth headset with Noise Shield will be sold along with the iPhone at all 157 Apple Stores and at Apple.com beginning June 29, 2007.
Jawbone is a groundbreaking Bluetooth headset from Aliph that integrates the latest innovations in acoustics, audio processing and product design to provide users with best-in-class incoming and outgoing voice clarity. Using an advanced, military-grade noise-canceling system called Noise Shield, the headset eliminates background noise and seamlessly adjusts speaker volume throughout the call, resulting in uninterrupted and clearer conversations, even in the most extreme environments.
The iPhone brings new functionality to the mobile phone with innovative software applications, while the Jawbone provides unprecedented call quality, so it’s possible to carry on a conversation in even the noisiest environments. The combination of iPhone + Jawbone will revolutionize mobile communications by allowing consumers to truly talk, work, and play anywhere.
“As the leader in audio quality, it’s exciting for us to have the Jawbone paired with the most innovative mobile phone platform in history,” said Hosain Rahman, Aliph CEO. “We believe consumers will find that the marriage of these products delivers the best experience in terms of quality and sophistication.”
To maximize performance, comfort and functional simplicity, Jawbone blends superior technology and medical grade materials with premium design by internationally acclaimed industrial designer Yves Behar, principal of fuseproject and VP & creative director of Aliph. “Aliph, like Apple, believes in design perfection and a seamless human experience with the product,” commented Behar.
