BlueParrott has introduced the B550-XT wireless headset, designed to be completely voice-controlled for a hands-free Bluetooth user experience.

The headset can tie into a smart device’s voice assistant – Google Assistant for Android devices and Siri for Apple’s – without requiring any button presses. It also features BlueParrott’s Voice Control Pro with multiple functions that can be voice controlled for true hands-free use. The voice activated B550-XT headset can control calls, access voice assistants, and control apps, music, and GPS directions.

The headset is IP54 rated for water and dust resistance and was designed for all-day comfort, offering 44-hours of talk time on a charge.

The headset also features noise cancellation, a customizable Parrott Button for one-touch access to a user’s favorite features, 300 feet of Bluetooth range, A2DP for media streaming and NFC for quick pairing with compatible devices.

“For the professional driver seeking to connect easily, safely and comfortably with the outside world while on the road, BlueParrott’s B550-XT headset makes it as easy as possible to achieve ultimate connectivity with just their voice,” said Urban Gillis, head of BlueParrott, North America. “The latest BlueParrott headset is engineered to simply talk to talk, requiring users to only say, ‘Hello BlueParrott’ to facilitate all-day conversations or business interactions with noise cancellation that filters out background noise for clear audio on both ends for superior call quality in high-noise environments.”
