EPOS launches new IMPACT 1000 Bluetooth headset series

Audio brand, EPOS has announced that the IMPACT 1000, an on-ear, future-proof Bluetooth headset, is available for purchase.

The company’s latest scientific research study sought to evaluate the potential benefits of noise attenuation, or noise reduction, in audio devices, while people performed a dual task consisting of understanding speech while reacting to a visual task. The results of the study indicate that noise attenuation, such as the hybrid adaptive ANC in IMPACT 1000 headsets, provides several benefits for participants when performing a dual task is required, including 67 per cent less listening effort and 48 per cent better recognition of speech in a noisy environment.

By minimising the brain effort spent on listening and understanding the elements of a conversation the IMPACT 1000 optimises user efficiency by up to 40 per cent, unlocking new levels of productivity and performance.

Theis Mørk, VP Product Management at EPOS said, “as the complexities of the modern work-scape continue to evolve so too must the solutions that we use to ensure productivity and communication. Backed by world-leading psychoacoustic data, the IMPACT 1000 is a trailblazing innovation for professionals and businesses operating in the New Open Office environment. Communication is at the core of business success and it's integral that leaders think intentionally about how they are optimizing the potential of technology solutions to empower their employees. Doing so will help improve productivity, accuracy, and efficiency.”

BrainAdapt is a group of pioneering technologies that work together to improve cognitive performance. IMPACT 1000 features EPOS BrainAdapt technology to reduce brain fatigue with hybrid adaptive Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and voice pickup powered by EPOS AI.

The IMPACT 1000 was awarded iF Design Award Gold as well as a Red Dot Design Award. These accolades are awarded to products of the highest calibre and represent outstanding examples of design excellence and innovation.

IMPACT 1000 is certified for Microsoft Teams and meets the Open Office requirements. Available from 1st June 2023.
