BlueParrott’s new B450-XT noise-cancelling Bluetooth headset has been designed to be more comfortable to wear, offer more flexible charging via USB-C, and allows for better calls in high-noise environments.
The B450-XT is one of BlueParrott’s most popular headsets to date and the next generation model addresses two critical features for users: comfort and durability. They deliver improved comfort through the padded headband and large, cushioned earcups for all-day use. The headset is even more durable with an IP54-rating to protect against dust and moisture, and now comes with USB-C charging to streamline charging across devices.
The new headset also enables easy firmware updates on the go using the BlueParrott app and features Bluetooth 5.0 for better connectivity across devices.
Building on the success of the original B450-XT, the headset also has standard features like noise cancellation that blocks out 96% of background noise and up to 24 hours of talk time. With BlueParrott’s VoiceControl, users can answer or reject calls with just their voice, providing a hands-free experience. Users can also customize the headset using the exclusive Parrott Button for one-touch access to favorite features and applications.
“Those who work in high-noise, high-mobility environments shouldn’t have to make a choice between taking calls and everything else their job entails,” says Urban Gillis, Head of BlueParrott, N.A. “We created the next generation of the B450-XT to provide the noise cancellation, call quality, durability, comfort and convenience that these industries need to stay connected while on the go.”
The B450-XT offers up to 24 hours of talk time and operates within a wireless range of up to 300 feet. It has large, easy-to-press buttons.
The BlueParrott B450-XT is available for pre-order for $230 and will be available for purchase at major retailers and travel centers beginning June 1.
