pauses media or rejects an incoming call when removed, and automatically answers calls as you place the headset on your ear.
Spill, splash, and sweat-proof exclusive P2i nano-coating means that your conversation can continue through a light rain, and an untimely spill won’t mean the end of your calls for the day.

Activate voice control for smartphone assistants such as Siri with a touch of a button, so you can tap into the power of your phone while working hands-free.
