NASHUA, N.H., Feb. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Jabra, the world's leading
manufacturer of wireless audio solutions, announced a state-of-the-art
headset, Jabra Motion™, designed to suit the rapidly growing group of mobile
workers that are multi-tasking at the office, in the car and at home using
smart phones, tablets or laptop with "presence everywhere" apps and Unified
Communication (UC) solutions.

"We aim to help the mobile worker gain the full benefits from their mobile
devices and UC solutions. It is our experience that one of the most important
factors for users, embracing these communication platforms and devices, is the
headset which bridges the gap between the users and the promise of efficiency
and flexibility with sound," says Mogens Elsberg, CEO Jabra.
The intuitiveness of the Jabra Motion design features allow you to concentrate
on the job at hand; not having to give second thought to the surroundings when
picking up a call. With a combination of motion sensors and intelligent
microphones, Jabra Motion automatically adapts to the sound environment and
adjusts to ensure the optimal and clear sound throughout a conversation,
whether in a noisy office or on the road. The headset registers any movement
instantly; when you pick up the headset - the call is answered simultaneously;
when you start walking, the speaker volume is automatically adjusted; just as
it will turn off and takes a power nap when laid down.
"We are pleased to have Jabra onboard with the Jabra Motion for the new
Microsoft Lync 2013," says Giovanni Mezgec, General Manager for Lync Product
Marketing at Microsoft Corp. "Jabra's long history in UC and their knowledge
about audio perfection and innovative design will add value to the end-user
experience of Lync customers."
Jabra devices enable users to derive the full audio experience with all the
flexibility- and efficiency benefits they expect from mobile devices and UC
solutions through enhanced voice collaboration.
Jabra has had a continued collaboration with Microsoft and has been a
Microsoft Gold Certified Partner since 2007, when Jabra launched its first
optimized headset for Microsoft Office Communicator. Today, Jabra carries a
broad portfolio of UC hands-free audio solutions - optimized and qualified for
For the Jabra Motion, the Jabra design team opted for the 'behind-the-ear'
circular shape; mimicking the back of the ears' semi-circle shape; a
simplistic, yet aesthetic design element. The folding boom adds
"pocketability" - the ability to carry it in a pocket without breaking the
boom arm – a key feature in the new design. The folding boom is at the same
time used to take and end calls with a simple flip of the boom arm.
The Jabra Motion 'behind the ear' Jabra design is the 8(th) generation of a
legendary headset wearing style that has become a Jabra trademark. Since 2000,
when Jabra launched the world's first Bluetooth® headset, the
'behind-the-ear' design has been setting industry standards with more than 4
million devices sold.
Jabra Motion will keep you up to speed and in touch, any time and everywhere -
it intuitively follows your every move and with the latest Near Field
Communication (NFC) technology for fast pairing, you simply tab the headset
with your NFC enabled devices to connect.
The launch of Jabra Motion follows the recent announcement of another new
Jabra innovation - the Bluetooth® enabled speakerphone; Jabra Speak™ 510.
Together these two devices offer a powerful package of connectivity for both
personal and group conversations, turning any space into a conference room.
With the increased mobility of the global workforce the Jabra Speak 510 was
the natural next step from the award-winning Jabra Speak™( )410 that won
best in test in a 2011 Sound & Design survey.
To highlight Jabra Motion's importance to the mobile worker target audience,
its launch coincides with the launch of Microsoft Lync 2013 (February 19-21,
Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego, CA). Jabra is excited to be a Gold Sponsor at
the Lync Conference 2013. Partner and Customer attendees may visit Jabra at
Booth #7 to view and test the full range of Lync Optimized Audio Solutions for
the mobile worker, home and corporate office and contact centers.
