The world's best communication device Bonx Boost

"BONX BOOST" is a dedicated Bluetooth earphone for the voice communication platform for the team.

Combined with the group talk app "Bonx" and its business version "BONX WORK", you can enjoy a new communication experience from the business to the private scene.

Bonx, which started with snowboarding, is used not only for extreme sports but also for various purposes.

Connect Bonx Grip / Bonx Mini / Bonx Boost to a smartphone (Bluetooth), and connect the person to speak by the Internet (Voice Over Internet Protocol).As long as you can connect to the Internet, the distance is unlimited and you can use it anytime, anywhere.

The main features of Bonx Boost

Furthermore, smaller and lightweight

The weight has been reduced to the ears by about 10g small/lighter.

Continuous calls for more than 10 hours are now possible.You don't have to worry about charging even if you use it all day.

Furthermore, the attached cradle with a battery supports quickly charging.It is safe in case of something.

Can be attached to both the left and right ears

By adopting a symmetrical design, it can be used in either ear by reversing.

Abundant optional parts

Technology supporting "BONX"

Patent "Inseparable" technology

If you go to a place with a poor communication environment, we will inform users who are calling on the screen and voice that the radio wave has deteriorated.Even if the communication is expired, it will automatically detect it and continue the automatic reconnection process until the communication returns.Calls are possible immediately after the return of the communication environment.

Measures against wind sounds with the utterance detection function

Machine learning is performed according to the user's audio environment, and it does not pick up the shortness of breath, the surrounding environment sounds that are "gacha gacha", and the voice of distant people.It is also possible to adjust the noise filter in manual.

Minimize data communication and battery consumption with lean design

Save communication and battery because you communicate only when you are talking.When conversation (*1) using BONX during activity, data communication is performed only about 20%compared to other companies' calling apps.*1: 60 minutes speak: Listen: Silence = 2: 2: 6 conversation.

Bonx x Road Bike

If you have BONX, you will not be able to get out of your friends with glue pride.You can talk without lining up, making cycling more fun.

"Can you speak even in the headwind?"

Due to the utterance detection technology, we do not communicate when not speaking, so we do not basically hear the wind noise from the other party.In addition, by the unique wind sounding mechanism, you can talk without any problems with fan ride.However, if you are going to compete, it will be difficult to pick up your voice when a speed of 30-35km/h or more appears during conversation.Furthermore, if it exceeds 40km/h, conversation will be difficult.For this problem, we recommend countermeasures with optional parts.

"Is it okay to pass through poor radio waves?"

When your smartphone is out of range, you will temporarily leave the talk room, but when you return to the area, you will automatically return to the talk room, so you do not need to take out your smartphone and re -enter the room.However, in the case of frequently outside the area and within the area, the entry and exit announcement of the room may reach your friends and it is troublesome.In that case, you can turn off the audio announcement from the talk settings, so please try it.

"I want to open the ears on the roadside side..."

With BONX BOOST, you can use it without optional parts on both the left and right ears for the upper and lower symmetrical design.Therefore, you can use it on the right ear or the left ear without any problems.

Bonx x Snowboard

「イェー!"「ヤバイね!"「最高!"このような仲間の声もBONXなら100m先でも聞こえてきます。BONXを使うことによって、自分が飛んだ時の情報や仲間の臨場感を共有することができ、楽しさを何倍にもしてくれます。

"I'm going to lose and lose..."

For the earpieces of three sizes, you can select the size that suits the ears of the user.In addition, if you use the ear hook of optional parts, it is safe even if it moves intensely.

「周りの音はどのくらい聞こえるの?"

BONX BOOST has a gap in the earpiece and is not completely sealed.In other words, it is a mechanism that can incorporate environmental sounds from the ears with BOOST.Therefore, there is no problem if you slide on the switch.

Bonx x fishing

Even if you are far away, you can instantly share the hit moment with a hands -free.Bonx is a mechanism that automatically starts with communication by speaking of the utility detection technology, so there is no need to operate button at all.

「釣り場って電波あるの?"

Basically, it can be used if the radio waves of the smartphone enter.It can be used without any problems except for places where the radio wave conditions are severe, such as the headwaters that enter the mountains, the wild pond, or the Ikehara Dam where the basting tournament is performed.Even if the sea goes 10-20km offshore, radio waves often enter unexpectedly, so it seems that there are many cases where it can be used without any problems.For example, wading and sea kayaks do not go offshore so much, so there is almost no need to worry about radio waves.

「バッテリーはどれくらい持つの?"

BONX BOOST ではContinuous calls for more than 10 hours are now possible.You don't have to worry about charging even if you use it all day.さらにバッテリー付きの付属のクレードルで急速充電にも対応しているので例えバッテリーが切れてしまってもすぐに充電可能です。「水濡れは大丈夫?"

It is a waterproof design equivalent to IP 55.Depending on the degree, it can be used without any problems with splashing in the state attached to the ear.

Bonx x work

Use at construction sites

Use in remote work

Bonx Boost is perfect for remote work.Bonx employees are actually used in remote work.

A bidirectional call can be made at the same time with more than 30 people, and the Bonx application can be made for 10 people in the free version and 30 or more for BONX WORK.Unlike a transceiver, a two -way communication (simultaneous call) is possible like a mobile phone.

It is possible to use two modes and use two modes.In addition, since the mode can be used properly, you can use it not only in everyday use but also for work.

(1) Hands -free mode Automatically detects the voice you talked about and communicate only when you talk.This mode is effective when both hands are blocked, such as when you are doing housework or when you want to have a conversation while hitting your computer.

(2) Push -to -talk mode (income mode) Bonx Boost's earphone physical button or button on the application screen is a mode in which the microphone reacts only.This is an effective mode if you can speak only when you need it, or if you can talk only when you need it.In business, it can be used in the same way as income.

Comparison with BONX GRIP

Designer's Comment

プロダクトデザイナー 百崎 彰紘Grip、miniに続き「BONX BOOST"のデザインも担当しました。創業初期はスノーボードをはじめとするアクティブスポーツをメインとしたサービス展開で、激しい動きにも耐え得る装着性の実現などで相当頭を悩ませましたが、今では個人ユースだけでなく医療現場やアパレル店舗、倉庫、航空会社などさまざまな事業でも使用されるようになり、デザイナーとしても非常に喜ばしく思う一方で、これまでにはなかった悩みや課題も明確に出てきたことで、新しいプロダクト開発でそういった悩みを早く解決したいと願っていました。

In the design, I was very worried about how to take the three balance between small size, driving time, and usability, and how to achieve functional expansion, but ultimately compared to other companies' products compared to conventional models.I think it has become a very unique design, and I am proud that there will be no other one that can experience the same as Bonx Boost for the retrofitting microphone function.From now on, we will work on the development of optional items, but I think it will be a more convenient and easy -to -use product.Please stay tuned.

PROFILE: After a wide range of experiences from product planning to actual manufacturing as a product manufacturer, Battles Design was established in 2013.It is a wide range of support, from product planning to product design, and production, focusing on digital devices, peripheral accessories, and IoT -related devices that are good at it.Currently, it supports hardware as a member of BONX members.

He has won many awards such as good design award, IF Design Award, Red Dot Award, JIDA DESIGN MUSEUM SELECTION.
