Posted on Fri, Nov 25, 2016 @ 06:00 AM

The holidays are upon us once again, so it’s time for the VXi Holiday Gift Guide. The truth is, just about ANY of our headsets will make a great gift, so you can’t go wrong if you go VXi. But we’d like to highlight a handful of hands-free helpers that the folks on your list are sure to love:

The even better BlueParrott. Introducing the VXi BlueParrott B450-XT.

Posted on Mon, Oct 17, 2016 @ 12:01 PM

B450-XT_Hero_2000x720_Lifestyle_100716.jpg

VXi is probably best known for two things, great sound and a legacy of innovation. We’ve earned that reputation over and over, over the past 26+ years. How? By never being satisfied. Our BlueParrott headsets, for example. When we released the B250-XT  in 2009, customers were plenty happy with it. So much so, it became #1 with truckers in no time. It sounded great, people loved it, and we could’ve just kept cranking them out. Why mess with success? 204010_B450-XT_3-Qtr_Right_02_600x400.jpg

But VXi doesn’t stand still. We like to keep moving ahead. Which is exactly what we’ve done with our BlueParrott line. Since 2009, we’ve introduced the B250-XT+, the B250-XTS and the B350-XT—all improvements over their predecessors, and all with loyal fans to this day. (They’re all still available for purchase, as well.)

And now there’s the VXi BlueParrott B450-XT, the even better BlueParrott. It’s got the most effective (96%) noise-canceling mic. A three-hundred-foot wireless range*. A bigger, cushier ear cushion, and a more comfortable, more durable padded headband. It’s even got more advanced Parrott Button™ features, like voice memo record, and VoiceControl™, which lets you handle incoming calls totally hands-free!

Of course, the B450-XT also has all the advanced features you’ve come to expect from BlueParrott: HD Voice™ quality. The customizable Parrott Button. Easy pairing with NFC (Near Field Communication). Music and GPS streaming. And more than 24 of talk time on a single charge. All of which makes the new B450-XT the most useful, most convenient and most indispensible BlueParrott headset yet!

Check out the B450-XT here.

Extend your possibilities. Introducing the BlueParrott Reveal Pro.

Here’s the simple truth about most Bluetooth headsets. They’re fine, as long as you accept their limits. Like their limited Bluetooth range. Their limited capabilities. And their painfully limited ability to deal with ambient noise.203835_Reveal_Pro_3-Qtr_Right_600x400-1.jpg

If you want more from your Bluetooth headset, VXi has some good news for you: the VXi BlueParrott® Reveal Pro™.  The Reveal Pro is the direct descendant of the VXi Reveal. In fact, it looks just like it. But the Reveal Pro features Class 1 Bluetooth, which gives it an extended, 300-foot range when paired with another Class 1 device. The Reveal Pro also adds VXi’s exclusive Parrott Button™, putting user-customization capabilities at your fingertip. And like the original Reveal, the Reveal Pro’s extendable microphone boom gives you the noise-canceling you need (up to 90%), depending on the noise level around you. 

You also get HD Voice™, for clear, easy to understand conversations. You can stream music or GPS instructions from any Bluetooth device. And enjoy over 7 hours of talk time on a charge.

So don’t settle for other headsets’ limitations. Do more, with the VXi BlueParrott Reveal Pro.

BlueParrott S450-XT lifestyle

Now there’s a stereo Bluetooth headset that even audiophiles will love—the VXi BlueParrott S450-XT! VXi BlueParrott S450-XTUnveiling at this year’s Great American Trucking Show (GATS), the VXi BlueParrott S450-XT is the first BlueParrott headset that gives you Hi-Fi stereo sound. With state-of-the-art aptX® technology for uncompromising wireless audio. And an AVRCP interface that gives you wireless control of media playback. With the new S450-XT, you can relax and enjoy great sound, as far as 300 feet away from your Bluetooth source.

But that’s not the whole story. The S450-XT also has a convenient pivoting microphone boom, equipped with VXi’s advanced noise-canceling microphone technology. So when a call comes in, you can flip down the boom and enjoy clear conversations—no matter how noisy the world is around you. At the end of the call, just rotate the boom out of your way. There’s also our exclusive customizable Parrott Button™ that you can set to the function you choose. And a battery that lasts 24 hours on a single charge, for uninterrupted tunes and talk! The S450-XT even comes with a 3.5mm cable, so you can enjoy a wired connection and save some battery power.

Your music is calling. To learn more, or buy your own S450-XT, just click here. Or pick one up at a travel center near you.

Gift Ideas for Dads and Grads

Posted on Wed, Jun 01, 2016 @ 09:00 AM

It’s that time of year again, and VXi has some great outside-the-box ideas for you to give dear old Dad (for Father’s Day) and/or your diligent graduate (for Graduation Day):

The VXi BlueParrott B350-XT. You may have seen this one on similar lists around the Internet. With good reason. The top of the BlueParrott line, the B350-XT was honored with an Innovation Award at CES last year. It has the industry’s best sound quality, with 96% noise canceling effectiveness. Works with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. Lets you stream music or GPS directions. And its customizable Parrott Button™ can be programmed to the function of your choice. It’s a winner.WiredBuds_Product_Gallery_Clip_600x400_092815.jpg

VXi BlueParrott Wired Buds. Our Wired Buds are the only in-ear headphones that sound good enough to be called BlueParrott. They’re truly durable, too (unlike so many other earbuds), and feature a convenient inline control fob/microphone that lets you start and stop music, adjust volume and answer and end calls. 

The VXi BlueParrott Point™. If the people on your list like to use a small Bluetooth headset, but aren’t crazy about the sound quality, here’s our first recommendation. The Point is small and stylish, and weighs less than half an ounce. But unlike most other small Bluetooth headsets, the Point actually sounds good.Lifestyle_Point_Male_01_082715_6x4.jpg

The VXi BlueParrott Reveal™. For folks who often find themselves in noisy places, like airports or city streets, the BlueParrott Reveal is the gift they’ll really appreciate. The Reveal is small and light, yet it still sounds much better than comparable headsets. But the Reveal really shines when life gets particularly loud. That’s when you slide out its extendable mic boom, and boost its noise canceling to an incredible 90%!  

The VXi Envoy™ Office. VXi even has choices for gamers. Take the Envoy Office. Don’t let the “office” in its name put you off. The stereo version of the Envoy Office is an ideal—and inexpensive—choice for gaming. Lightweight and comfortable, the Envoy Office also boasts great sound and the convenience of a USB connection.

That’s a short list. If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, take a look at our website. You’re sure to find something your Dad or Grad will love.

By popular demand: the VXi BlueParrott B250-XTS.

Posted on Wed, Apr 06, 2016 @ 02:30 PM

B250-XTS_Hero_2000x720_032316.jpgThe story of the new B250-XTS Bluetooth headset is the story of a company that listens to its customers. 

203890_B250-XTS_3-Qtr_Right600x400.jpgOur VXi BlueParrott B250-XT+ has been a very popular headset since we first introduced it. And while it continues to be a big seller, people started asking us if we could make a version with a micro USB charging port. We understood, because the micro USB has become a de facto standard for charging almost anything.

So what did VXi do?  We could’ve said “Just buy a B350-XT. It’s got a micro USB port.” But we understood that a good chunk of the B250-XT+ fans out there were very happy with their B250-XT+; all they wanted was a micro USB. So we gave it to them: the new VXi BlueParrott B250-XTS gives them everything they know and love about the B250-XT+, plus the convenience of a micro USB charging port. Enhanced Xtreme Noise Suppression™? Check. Wideband audio? Check. Audio streaming from any Bluetooth device? Check. It’s all there, along with the micro USB they asked for. That’s what you call customer responsiveness.

If you’re a B250-XT+ fan, or if you’re just in the market for a proven Bluetooth headset that sounds great, lasts forever, and features convenient charging, you’ll probably want to pick up a VXi BlueParrott B250-XTS, today.

Enterprise Connect 2016 Wrap-Up

Posted on Wed, Mar 16, 2016 @ 10:14 AM

Communicators and collaborators from all over came to Orlando in search of the latest business-transforming innovations, and a whole lot of them spent time with VXi. Enterprise_Connect_2016.jpgOur booth was buzzing from beginning to end, and our Enterprise solutions were a huge hit with attendees. Why not? People want to be more productive, and our clearly better-sounding products certainly transform the way the world works. 

Everyone loved the new VXi Envoy™ Office, the full-featured, truly affordable UC headset. Especially the inline Skype for Business™ controls. And the new low price ($119.99!) on our V150 Wireless Office Headset really had people talking. Those people obviously know a good deal—and a great product—when they see one.

People were also impressed by the BlueParrott line of incredibly versatile Bluetooth headsets that deliver the best sound quality and intelligibility in the business and enable mobile professionals to work from anywhere.

So, all in all, Enterprise Connect was another big success for VXi. Our thanks to everyone who contributed to it. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Post-CES 2016 Wrap-Up

Posted on Mon, Jan 18, 2016 @ 03:35 PM

What a show! CES 2016 was HOT, and VXi was in the thick of it. Booth_05-654992-edited.jpgThis year, we showcased the entire VXi line, so there was something for everyone—from CC&O (like the new VXi Envoy™ Office) to retail (VXi’s BlueParrott® Wired Buds, for one). And everyone must have gotten the memo, because our booth was abuzz with activity, pretty much every minute of every day. 

It’s hard to say which products got the most attention. The brand new VXi BlueParrott Point™, the small Bluetooth® headset with the big BlueParrott sound, certainly had its share of fans. So did last year’s big star, the extendable-boom Reveal™. The customizable B350-XT was another favorite. On the CC&O side, the VXi UC ProSet LUX, with the built-in presence indicator, continues to make its presence known. So there was plenty for visitors to get excited about.

Plenty of press came by, too. NewsWatch TV interviewed David Jaques, our Director of Product Marketing. Dave talked with them about the latest from VXi, and what’s in the pipeline for 2016. VXi will be part of their special CES airing on ION TV on Monday, January 25th.

Seeing our whole line laid out, you really got a sense of the evolution of VXi’s products—and how we’ve never wavered in our commitment to be the Sound Choice™. It was a great beginning to what promises to be a great year. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came by!
