Parrot SK4000

Parrot, one of the leaders in wireless peripherals around the mobile phone, has today launched the Parrot SK4000, a Bluetooth hands-free motorcycle kit that features FM RDS radio and wireless mobile remote control. The Parrot SK4000 stands out with a clear-cut noise reduction and echo cancelling and the widest range of features available in this market.

Motorcyclists can now switch between their favourite songs - whatever the format - and answering calls through the easy clip-on wireless remote fixed to the bike’s left handlebar. The Parrot SK4000 offers the motorcyclist the choice to listen to music via Bluetooth wireless technology (using the A2DP profile), on the FM radio (RDS inside) or from analogue sources via the line-in.

For calling, thanks to Parrot’s multi-speaker voice recognition software, there is no need to record voice tags anymore: the kit automatically recognizes the contact’s name spoken by whoever is using the kit, and makes the call automatically. Also, the unique Text To Speech feature (voice synthesis) on the Parrot SK4000 reads contact names from the user’s phonebook through the earpiece and is also able to name radio stations to help the driver identify the correct station.
