PRESS RELEASE

MACSENSE ANNOUNCES FIRST 
MULTIMEDIA HEADSET FOR THE MAC

iParrott Patent-Pending Technology Provides Superior Noise Cancellation

SANTA CLARA, CA. (April 4, 2000) - Macsense, the leading developer of Macintosh peripherals, announced today iParrott, the first multimedia headset for the Mac. iParrott's patent-pending Translator provides superior noise canceling for voice recognition in even the noisiest environments.

The iParrott Translator is built directly into the headset, providing exceptional audio reception by canceling unwanted background noises that other headsets can't handle. This is a boon for voice recognition software, where distorted noises result in increased errors. 

Says Corey Happel, director or sales and marketing of Macsense, "The day is coming soon when we'll all be talking to our computers, asking for it to surf the Internet, send speech-mails, get stock quotes, make phone calls, write dictated documents, etc. And what users will discover is that the noise cancellation quality of their headset is what will make those applications accurate, efficient, and fun to use. That is that's the advantage that the Macsense iParrott will have over any competitor."

iParrott is used with voice recognition software, such as IBM's Viavoice and MacSpeech; for Mac OS commands; security applications, such as voice print security for MacOS9; and telephony applications, such as voiceover IP (VoIP).

Available immediately for $49.99 for Macintosh computers, iParrot can be purchased through several mail order catalogs, local and national retail outlets, and most Mac e-tailers. For more information, contact Macsense, 3350 Scott Blvd., Building 2, Santa Clara CA 95054, 800-642-8860.
