We had the opportunity to attend Showstoppers 2012 and got an inside look into the latest technology on the market today. BlueAnt is a leader in bluetooth technology and we got a firsthand look into some of their new products.
STREAM TO ANY SPEAKER
Ultra-portable Sound You Wear
Twist and Go: With this simple action you can attach the Ribbon to your shirt, t-shirt or jacket and have streaming music at your fingertips without having to touch your phone.
Use Any Headphones
The Ribbon features a standard 3.5mm stereo output so you can use the supplied true-to-life earbuds or your favorite headphones*.
One Touch Music Control
Simply press the controls on the Ribbon to control the track and volume with no need to get out your phone.
The Ribbon includes aptX for ‘wired’ quality streaming Bluetooth music. This is as good as it gets for streaming audio fidelity. Simply pair and connect your aptX enabled device to the Ribbon and you will instantly hear the difference.
100% HANDSFREE DIALING AND TEXTING
Drive your phone while you drive your car!
Use your voice with the BlueAnt COMMUTE and there is no longer any need to touch your phone or speakerphone while driving.
Drivers can make and receive calls on the road using only their voice through our simple Siri and Google integration. Just say “Launch Voice Control”.
You can even hear and respond to messages simply by using your voice.
Move into the future with COMMUTE.
Use Your Voice to Make and Receive Calls
To activate the COMMUTE, all you have to do is say the hands-free trigger phrase “BlueAnt Speak to Me” and the COMMUTE will be ready for your voice commands.
To make a call, just say “Launch Voice Control” and the COMMUTE will activate your phone’s voice dialing feature. *
When the phone rings you won’t need to take your eyes off the road to know who is calling because the COMMUTE will read out the caller’s name or number and ask you if you want to take the call. All you have to do is say “Answer” or “Ignore”.
The BlueAnt COMMUTE makes it simpler and safer to communicate while driving by keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.
Hear Your Messages on the Go
The COMMUTE integrates with Siri or our Android application so that you can hear incoming text messages read aloud right on the COMMUTE. On the iPhone 4S, simply say “Launch Voice Control” followed by “Read My Messages” to have new messages read back to you. On Android* handsets you simply install our free application and it will automatically read the messages back through your connected COMMUTE.
The COMMUTE features integrated A2DP streaming audio functionality, so you can listen to music or podcasts and hear turn-by-turn direction information from a GPS application on your phone.
Free Android Application
Users with Android* devices can further enhance their BlueAnt COMMUTE by installing the BlueAnt Android application. The application provides text message readout directly into the COMMUTE and includes help and support for your product.

The COMMUTE Talks You Through It
The COMMUTE also features embedded audio help that talks you through the setup and pairing process, and if you can’t remember the voice commands you can ask the COMMUTE “What Can I Say?” and it will tell you the available options.
