BlueParrott’s B550-XT wireless headset

BlueParrott’s newest wireless headset — the B550-XT — is powered by your voice. You tell it what to do and what you want, and the B550-XT does it.

Now if only everything and everyone else in your trucking life did the same.

Until then, you’ll have to be content in the knowledge that this robust, powerful headset uses Voice Control Pro to manage your calls, access voice assistants, and control apps, music and GPS directions. All you have to say is “Hello BlueParrott,” to make use of these and other features on the B550-XT.

Here’s the number for the B550-XT:

  • 24 hours of talk time
  • 500 hours of standby
  • 96 percent cancellation of background noise
  • 300 feet of range to pair with other Bluetooth devices,

The company says it’s the most comfortable over-the-head headset that the company has ever designed. The cushion size has increased over 10 percent, and that means drivers can wear the headset all the time they are driving without discomfort.

The B550-XT sells for $199.99 in select travel centers.
