Use your voice to play a song, order groceries, and check the news,
then switch between music, calls, and real-world conversations, without
skipping a beat or touching your phone
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ONVOCAL™, a software and hardware innovator focused on enhancing mobile
entertainment, communication and commerce experiences, launched OV
today, the first intelligent headphone that connects you to the physical
and digital worlds through the power of voice and sound.
With the tap of a button, OV allows you to easily interact with your
favorite voice assistants including Amazon (NASDAQ:
AMZN) Alexa, Siri and Google, unlocking a world
of entertainment, communication, shopping, on-demand services,
information and more. Plus, you can use OV with Amazon Alexa to
access Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Music, Audible, Kindle
books, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn Radio1, all
controlled by the sound of your voice.
“We’re excited to work with ONVOCAL to bring Alexa to the all-new OV
headphones — the first headphones available with the Alexa voice service
built in,” said Aaron Brown, Director, Amazon Voice Services. “Now
customers can use their OV headphones to access over 5,000 Alexa skills
such as Lyft, Domino’s, and 7 Minute Workout. Plus, if they’re on the
go, they can use Alexa to quickly check for nearby movie show times,
manage their shopping lists, control their smart home and much more —
all just by using their voice. We can’t wait for our customers to try
OV’s patented and patent pending innovations include a unique and useful
suite of intelligent Sound Controls. OV is the only headphone to offer Ambient,
Voice and Chat sound controls so you can boost, block, mix
and customize exactly what you hear. The Ambient control allows
you to hear what’s happening around you in true binaural 3D sound. The Voice
control allows you to hear your own voice in real time for better calls,
voice commands and even for singing along to your favorite tunes. A
double-tap of the Chat button automatically dips music volume and
turns on Ambient and Voice, which means you don’t
need to remove earbuds to have a face-to-face conversation with the
fight attendant, barista, friend or colleague.
OV features the finest audio components including balanced
armature speakers tuned to deliver rich, powerful bass, smooth vocals,
and crystal clear detail. And when you need to be heard, a pair of
beam-forming microphones reduces background noise when making calls or
talking to voice assistants.
“We created OV to make daily life easier and more enjoyable,” said Bob
Spaner, President of ONVOCAL. “We’re passionate about sound and driven
by creating seamless user experiences that connect us to each other and
a vast array of cloud services. OV doesn’t just let us listen to high
fidelity music on the go, OV empowers us to control a world of content,
information, services, and communication with the sound of our voice.”
For the best OV experience and access to Amazon Alexa,
download the free OV app, available for Android and iOS. Use the OV app
for fine adjustments of Audio, Ambient, and Voice
levels for music and phone calls alike.
