A throat microphone, also called a laryngophone, is a type of contact microphone that absorbs vibrations directly from the wearer's throat by way of single or dual sensors worn against the neck. The sensors, called transducers, can pick up speech even in extremely noisy or windy environments, such as on a motorcycle or in a nightclub...Advanced laryngophones are able to pick up whispers, and therefore perform well in environments where communicating with others at a distance in silence is required, such as during covert military or law enforcement operations. Throat microphones are also very useful when helmets or respiratory protection is required. Many full-face SCBA, CABA, SAR respirator, PAPR, or re-breather masks do not have a provision for a microphone inside the mask. The throat microphone can be used safely, as it is positioned outside the mask's face seal and as such does not compromise the respiratory protection provided by the mask, nor does it violate mask approvals and certification.
For esophageal speakers; Microphone is worn around base of neck with the microphone resting in the "sweet spot" of your neck for more sensitive voice response
Low profile look perfect for field operations, surveillance purposes and sports
Allows users to transmit voice singals even at a wisper with superior sound quality, no interference and without ambient noises
Felxible neck rim comfortable wearing less pressure on the throat/neck
Requires a firm fit to operate properly
Works with all MiniBuddy Voice Amplifier. Absorbs vibrations directly from the wearer’s throat, therefore equires a firm fit to operate properly. Sounds naturally generated in the nasal cavity and by the tongue and lips are muffled. Voice clarity can be affected by the amount of adipose tissue and facial hair on the user’s neck.
