Motorola Introduces Oasis™: Redefining Headset Comfort
Motorola’s Oasis™ coming to AT&T stores nationwide
Sept. 27, 2010
LIBERTYVILLE, ILL. – September 27, 2010 – Motorola, Inc., the world leader in Bluetooth® headsets, today announced Oasis™, a Bluetooth® headset that redefines comfort and performance. Oasis features a unique, behind-the-ear design that creates a comfortable, stable feel and dual-mics for superior noise cancellation. Oasis will be available starting October 3 through AT&T.
“We designed Oasis with a customizable fit, so it is comfortable enough for consumers to wear all day, every day,” said Wayne White, corporate vice president, Companion Products, Motorola Mobility. “Motorola recognizes that no two ears are alike, so our engineers and designers, after extensive trial and testing, created a headset that not only looks and sounds good but also feels great.”
Designed with You in Mind
Oasis was designed using the feedback Motorola received from consumers during an ongoing series of proprietary studies on ergonomics and comfort that have been taking place since 2006. The largest of these studies involved evaluating more than 500 consumer’s ears and hours of one-on-one interviews. Motorola then used the consumer ear molds to digitally create 15,000 ear measurements, 22 times more measurement points than traditional methods using calipers to measure. When developing Oasis we considered all aspects of the ear – literally inside and out – to guide our designers on how to create the most comfortable headset design available today.
Feel and Hear the Difference
The behind-the-ear wearing style for Oasis is the most comfortable design available and when worn the headset looks and feels like nothing is there. Adjust the boom and choose from three cushy ear gels to create a headset experience that is just right for you. The unique behind-the-ear wearing style disguises the headset and counter balances the weight, making it the lightest headset available. The extended boom has dual-mics for outstanding noise cancellation and suppresses wind up to 12mph, which is 2X better than leading competitors’ wind suppression technology.
We learned that consumers want frequently used buttons in more convenient locations. For Oasis we designed and integrated the answer/end call button and the dedicated mute button in intuitive locations, that don't impact the comfortable fit. Staying connected has never been easier with voice prompts that automatically guide you through pairing the headset, as well as the MultiPoint technology that provides the ability to connect and receive calls from two Bluetooth-enabled devices at the same time.
Oasis Bluetooth® headset will be available in the U.S. beginning October 3 at AT&T stores and online for $79.99.
