    So a couple years ago I bought a VXi BlueParrott B450 xt and I absolutely love it, but I was a little too careless with it and now it's falling apart to the point where I basically can't use it anymore. So I decided to just get another one and try to take better care of it since I loved it so much otherwise. I noticed when putting the old one away that it says VXi on the side of it and my new one doesn't.

    My question is, what does that stand for? The headset seems exactly the same besides that logo and they're both priced the same as well.

    Easiest way to explain this is TX is an acronym that is used for telecommunications transmission, hence the (T), therefore VX is sort of a way to distinguish (V) voice transmission. Most handheld radios also carry a VX prefix. As to the (i) in VXi, I would assume that to mean it has some form of “intelligent” system software aka voice recognition, etc...

    Ah, thank you. That was the answer I was looking for. It all makes sense now. Fortunately this headset is identical to the VXi one like I said, so still really good quality.

    I had always assumed VXi is just marketing name. I have the Blue Parrot Vxi 250+
