Optimized control panel for comfortable working
Philips is the creator of the ergonomic zones design. SpeechMike Premium has been tested and proven by users to have the most comfortable fit in the human hand. The dictation zone is optimized to keep thumb movement to a minimum. The buttons needed for the actual dictation functions are placed centrally, in the area most convenient for the thumb, guaranteeing perfect ergonomics and non-fatiguing usage for the user. Less frequently needed function buttons are clearly arranged above and below. All buttons used are formed to give as much tactile feedback as possible.
Ergonomically shaped for perfect fit in the hand
As the rear of a dictation microphone is as important as the front, Philips put an emphasis on shaping it in a way so that it perfectly fits the human hand and reduces unintentional use of buttons. The trigger and the “command” button on the rear housing are engineered to be exactly where they need to be. There has never been a desktop dictation device that is as ergonomic as the SpeechMike Premium.
A well-engineered microphone grille is able to make a high-end microphone as in the new SpeechMike Premium stand out even more. The hexagonal holes used for the metal grille feature three times more open surface than its predecessor, engineered to provide crystal clear recordings
Integrated pop filter for perfect quality
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 hiss noise, guaranteeing perfect results even if dictating closely into the microphone.
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.
Antimicrobial housing and buttons for hygienic working
The SpeechMike Premium’s housing and buttons are made of antimicrobial synthetics, guarding it against all kinds of germs. Antimicrobial materials work against a wide range of different microorganisms such as bacteria (e.g. pneumococcal bacilli and multiresistant microorganisms such as MRSA), viruses (e.g. HIV, influenza, etc.), fungi (e.g. Aspergillus niger), or algae. The antimicrobial effect on the SpeechMike Premium lasts for at least five years.
