Launch marks first-time industrial application of Bluetooth-enabled eyewear

SMITHFIELD, R.I. – Today, Honeywell Safety Products introduced Uvex AcoustiMaxx Stereo Bluetooth eyewear, an all-in-one solution combining maximum impact protection with hands-free voice communication. Uvex AcoustiMaxx enables workers in remote or noisy environments to focus on the task at hand while remaining protected and in contact with their teams, improving safety and productivity on the job. This marks the first time Bluetooth-enabled eyewear is available for industrial applications.

“Uvex AcoustiMaxx is ideal for safety managers faced with protecting workers in environments where communication is challenging, yet essential,” said David Iannelli, senior product manager for Honeywell Safety Products. “This launch underscores our commitment to addressing specific occupational needs through leading-edge technology and innovation, and to supporting a safety culture in every workplace.”

Uvex AcoustiMaxx Stereo Bluetooth eyewear features a wrap-around lens design for maximum versatility and meets the ANSI-Z87.1-2010 standard for impact protection. It comes with Genesis® S lenses in both clear and gray to serve a variety of applications, as well as Uvextreme® high-performance anti-fog lens coating for long-lasting wear. An easy, economical lens replacement system extends the product’s lifetime value. At only 52 grams, the dual-purpose eyewear offers lightweight comfort.

In addition, Uvex AcoustiMaxx end-users enjoy crystal-clear, acoustically isolated, in-ear voice communication. Uvex AcoustiMaxx allows communication with cell phones, smartphones and any other Bluetooth-enabled voice communication product. Dual-microphone technology reduces ambient noise pick-up, while a high-performance balanced armature driver delivers superior stereo sound. Howard Leight® SmartFit® and Accusonix™ replaceable eartips ensure sound isolation for extremely clear communication.

Uvex AcoustiMaxx provides six hours of continuous talk and approximately seven days of standby service. Its lithium-polymer rechargeable battery lasts up to 12 months. Water resistant, the product is FCC and Bluetooth SIG certified.
