EPOS Announces the IMPACT 1000 headset series for the open office

EPOS, the premium global audio and video brand, today announces the IMPACT 1000 – an on-ear, future-proof Bluetooth® headset. The IMPACT 1000 Series is the first headset designed to meet the challenges of a call in the New Open Office[1]* workspace. This headset for talk-centric professionals ensures that all sides of the meeting can stay focused for an impactful dialogue while minimising the brain energy spent on listening and understanding the essentials. EPOS IMPACT 1000 is designed to help the brain listen and understand with at least one on the call being in a noisy environment. This reduces brain fatigue on both sides of the meeting through hybrid adaptive ANC and industry-leading adaptive voice pickup powered by EPOS AI™.

The IMPACT 1000 leverages industry-leading speech intelligibility technology. By harnessing machine learning technology, the IMPACT 1000 works to identify which sounds should be suppressed in a user’s environment and which sounds should be enhanced. Together, this first-of-its-kind solution addresses the challenges of modern work environments, empowering workers in open plan offices to block out unwanted noises and create disturbance-free work experiences for both sides of a call.
