The microphone area of the SpeechMike Premium is made of many different layers to make it sound as clear and original as possible. One of those is a fleece inserted above and below the microphone capsule. The fleece filters out sound distortions such as pop and hisses noise, guaranteeing perfect results even if dictating closely into the microphone.
Free floating, decoupled for precise recording
The microphone in the new SpeechMike Premium is decoupled from its housing for the most incredible crystal clear recording performance ever to be delivered by a desktop dictation device. The completely redesigned microphone suspension guarantees that almost no background, touch, click, air or structure-borne noise is recorded. This technique is derived from studio microphones to make sure there are no sound distortions whatsoever – and to guarantee outstanding speech recognition results.
Optimized grille and pop filter for crystal clear sound
The metal grille comes with specially designed hexagonal openings which allow three times more sound to reach the microphone than its predecessor, engineered to provide crystal clear recordings. A fleece inserted above and below the microphone capsule filters out sound distortions such as pop and hiss noise, guaranteeing perfect results even if dictating closely into the microphone.
Integrated motion sensor mutes microphone when not in use
Being on the cutting edge of technology, the SpeechMike Premium Air comes with an integrated motion sensor, meaning it can be controlled by the movement of your hand. It detects when it’s put on the table, mutes the microphone, and once it is being picked up again it unmutes the microphone. In addition to that, custom events can be programmed, e.g., to pause and to continue the recording.
Large speaker area for premium playback
Compared to its predecessor, the SpeechMike Premium is equipped with a double sized-speaker area that enables it to play back recordings in clear and crisp quality.
Ergonomically shaped for perfect fit in the hand
The device is designed to fit perfectly into the hand and reduce unintentional pressing of buttons. The trigger and the ‘command’ button on the back of the device are engineered to be in easy reach for the fingers.
Trackball for integrated mouse function
The device comes with a trackball. This allows the user to easily control and navigate within applications while recording, without having to switch between the mouse and microphone. The trackball can even be taken out of the device for cleaning, if this should ever be required. The self-lubricated and abrasive resistant Teflon bearings guarantee a smooth operation over the entire lifetime.
Wear-free slide switch and push buttons for operation
The SpeechMike Premium Air comes with slide-switch or push-button operation. The slide switch is ergonomically shaped with a softly ribbed surface for smooth tactile feedback and comfortable and intuitive utilization.
Configurable function keys for a personalized workflow
The Philips SpeechMike Premium is the most advanced dictation microphone to date – and to give the user even more room to personalize their devices, Philips has added an instruction key at the top of the control panel – of course fully and freely user configurable, especially useful for programming speech recognition commands.
The hygienic surface of the SpeechMike housing physically hinders the colonization of germs and thus improves the efficiency of the usual measures for disinfecting the device. The polished, high quality pearl metal surface also makes the device non-sensitive to touch noises and fingerprints.
