The eS704 was selected for its superior noise suppression capabilities, Audio Focus technology and also cutting edge VoiceQ technology to instantly wake the phone up when the user speaks a keyword.

"We are very pleased that this close collaboration is allowing Coolpad to deliver cutting edge features, like VoiceQ that consumers are clamoring for along with the crystal clear call quality that is Audience's signature," said Zhang Guangqiang, Vice President of Yulong Group.

"We are pleased that Coolpad shares our vision that Always-on capabilities and features like VoiceQ will pave the road to truly compelling natural user experiences."

Audience VoiceQ keeps the Coolpad Bodun in an extremely low-power and Always-on "listening" mode so it is ready to understand and immediately act upon verbal commands without the need to touch the phone. With the new Coolpad Bodun, the eS704 allows the user to take individualization a step further and personalize the device's wake-up keyword.
