LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- GN Netcom, the world leader in innovative headset solutions, today announced the Jabra EXTREME, a Bluetooth® headset that features a fantastic new innovation: Noise Blackout(TM) Extreme. Noise Blackout Extreme builds on Jabra's distinguished heritage in noise cancelling technologies using dual microphones and automatic volume control to dramatically enhance call quality, providing twice as much background noise reduction (24 decibels) as previous Noise Blackout(TM) technology (12 decibels). In addition, a unique new Ultimate-fit Eargel(TM) has been developed to guarantee superior comfort for all day use. The Jabra EXTREME will be shown for the first time this week at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The Jabra EXTREME makes poor quality calls a distant memory. To create the clearest call possible, dual microphones capture sound while intelligently filtering out background noise. This eliminates ambient noise even in the loudest environments, enhancing the call clarity and ensuring the caller never sounds like a robot.

The Jabra EXTREME is designed for comfort and style - users won't even realize that they are wearing a headset. Specially developed Ultimate-fit Eargels(TM) mold to any ear shape to ensure a snug fit: one size really does fit all with the Jabra EXTREME. The headset also comes with two rotatable ear hooks that are contoured to fit the ear perfectly, ensuring a comfortable fit all day long. Maintaining the good looks of its predecessor, the Jabra BT530, the EXTREME features a sleek, updated style which appeals to music fans and road warriors alike.

Delivering the ultimate user-friendly experience, the Jabra EXTREME truly allows users to be hands free by eliminating the need to fiddle with any buttons while on a call or making calls. While on a call, the headset automatically adjusts the volume of the call to suit both the environment and the in-coming voice, intelligently amplifying a quiet voice and reducing a loud one. In addition, a technology called Acoustic Shock Protection protects the user's ear from any sudden blasts of noise. The headset also allows a user to manually fine-tune voice and music volume to their liking. The EXTREME can also be connected to two devices at the same time, making the transition between PC and mobile phones, or music and talk, much easier.

The Jabra EXTREME is now available at Best Buy retail stores and at BestBuy.com for a suggested retail price of $79.99.
