ONVOCAL Brings First Alexa-Connected Headphones to CES 2018



ONVOCAL is the creator of OV – the first ever Alexa-connected headphones that were designed and tested for road warriors and music lovers. OV offers the best phone conversations, uncompromised audio, and the most advanced voice commands.

One headphone for work, play and travel! No need to buy different headphones for different uses. OV works everywhere, in the air, in the gym, and on the street. Use it to take calls, listen to music, or to give voice commands to Alexa.

The OV neckband is so light, you’ll forget that its even on. It has Flex zones that can be adjusted to your neck size, and sleek metal trim pieces that match any outfit. OV also has Comply foam tips that shape to your ear canal for a perfect fit and seal. Silicone ear tips also included. Form fit Earbud Cables hug the side of your neck for a discrete look.

OV is the world’s first wearable assistant that puts the most popular voice assistants: Alexa, Siri, and Google right in your ear. With a simple command, text or call people, ask for songs, navigate while driving, control your smart home, and order food, products or services.

OV’s dedicated Alexa button provides one-tap access to millions of songs, audiobooks, and radio stations. Alexa has over 15,000 skills (and growing) that range from simple information requests to interactive games, recipes and fitness apps.

OV is priced at $199 USD.

ONVOCAL is at CES 2018 at the Venetian Tower Exhibit Suites – Floor 29, Suite 122


ONvocal Mix360 Combines Music, Voice and Ambient



ONvocal

Anyone who has worn earbuds or in-ear headphones will know that (a) they are very effective in blocking out external noise and (b) phone conversations sound a little strange if you use them with your smartphone to take a call. ONvocal have a solution to these problems….it’s a little unorthodox and pricey so Don finds out more from company president, Bob Spanner.

The Mix360 personal audio device combines microphones with signal processors to mix sound from three sources – music, phone call and environmental noise. The benefit in the first instance is that you can hear the world around you and avoid getting run over by buses plus when you are on a phone call, you hear your own voice, which makes it much more natural. The exact level of each audio source can be adjusted via complementary app. The interview video doesn’t really make it clear but the band is a neckband not a headband and is worn at collar level.

The Mix360 will be available in May with a price of $349 and can be pre-ordered at ONvocal’s shop.
