Bluetrek's Crystalline(TM) improves Bluetooth voice quality- Outstanding voice quality enabled with STEP Labs software
for Bluetrek’s next generation of headset and carkit.

January 5, 2009 Paris, France – BLUETREK, a leading wireless consumer electronics brand of
Bluetooth devices, announces two products using its new proprietary Crystalline™ Voice Technology for better sound and voice quality than every other Bluetooth product. The Crystalline Voice Technology is implemented on the Crescendo™ headset and the CompactVoice™ visor-mounted in-car speakerphone product families being introduced at CES.
· Crescendo is a high end sleek Bluetooth headset made for consumers who are picky
about the sound and voice quality of their calls.
· CompactVoice is a in-car speakerphone for mobile users who want superior hands-free
voice quality in the cars.
The technological superiority of the Crystalline™ Voice Technology (CVT) is based on improvements in hardware and software. Devices with CVT have multiple microphones, advanced
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms, and STEP Labs’ patented STEPvoice™ microphone
array technology and STEPsound™ intelligent speaker software that automatically enhances voice intelligibility and speech enunciation, while dynamically adjusts volume according to the ambient noise in the user’s environment.
“BLUETREK is committed to improving the performance, style, and usefulness of Bluetooth
devices,” said Henri-Nicolas Olivier, CEO of ModeLabs Technologies. “We choose STEP Labs
because they are committed to improving voice quality in consumer electronics regardless of noise
and wind conditions and they have the best tuning and acoustic software solutions that
BLUETREK customers and demanding Bluetooth users will appreciate for our new generation of
Crystalline-enabled products.”
This new generation of advanced Bluetooth products features voice control and voice prompts,
superior noise cancellation, long battery life, caller name announcement, mobile phone address
book synchronization, set and forget volume control, and near–perfect voice recognition even
above 90dB background noise.”

“BLUETREK devices are among the select few who meet the acoustic quality standards required
to carry the STEP OnBoard™ seal,” said Robert F. Mitro - CEO of STEP Labs. “The acoustic
performance and voice quality of Crescendo and CompactVoice are among the best in the
industry.”
