Bluetooth Enabled Glares Sport Style and Tech

Tri-Specs Inc. is a company that is trying combine high-tech and high-fashion in user-friendly consumer electronics. Their offering is Bluetooth-enabled eyewear that combines the best possible acoustic technology for noise cancellation and voice quality in mobile communications with acoustically enhanced, premium stereo sound for a better MP3 music experience. This is not the first time, of course, that a company has tried to incorporate technology into eyewear. Other examples are VuZix iWear and MyVu.

TriSpecs are styled glasses that use STEP Labs’ noise elimination acoustic technology. They combine dual microphones, dual speakers, and Bluetooth connectivity in a mobile accessory which aims to produce the best voice quality and intelligibility on the market.

“Beyond the form and function of these glasses, their performance is without equal,” said Isaac Levy, CEO of Tri-Specs, Inc. “Once you try them, you’ll know why TriSpecs are a must-have accessory in every wireless and fashion accessory manufacturer’s product line.”

TriSpecs integrate the patented STEPvoice software from STEP Labs. STEPvoice uses the physics of sound propagation to define the shape and arrival time of sound waves to isolate voice signals from undesired noises. STEP Labs’ software is able to tell the difference between the wearer’s voice and other voices, sounds, and noises, preserving the natural fidelity of the voice and producing near-perfect voice recognition performance, and impeccable noise cancellation.

“The form factor of TriSpecs glasses allowed our acoustic engineers to design a dual-microphone solution that produces an unbelievable Bluetooth headset experience,” said Michael Hickerson, President of STEP Labs.
