Innovative dual microphone design to kill all noises

Using two microphones, i.VoicePRO(TM) was specifically designed and tuned for voice pickup applications. The microphones array technology in i.VoicePRO(TM) enables the pickup of near-field signal but excludes the pickup of undesired far-field noises. Signals from far-field are ignored while the desired signal remains clean and clear. Therefore, i.VoicePRO(TM) user does not need to speak louder and can keep talking elegantly all day long.

Voice separation technology in i.VoicePRO(TM) is genius in both hardware and software development.

i.VoicePRO(TM) has implemented a unique patented algorithm which is based on the physics of sound waves and also the different time of arrival. The astounding noise filter software intelligently recognizes the user voice and thus able to provide near perfect voice recognition without any distortion, even in very noisy environments. In addition, i.VoicePRO(TM) is also designed for wind resistance, speech totally insensitive to wind. As a result, the receiving end can hear every word from the user.

In addition, i.VoicePRO(TM) main microphone's surface is notched in the form of u-shape to further direct user's voice into the microphone.

Automatic volume control provides the true hands-free communications

i.VoicePRO(TM) speaker's sound delivery feature improves the speech intelligibility while dynamically adjusting the speaker loudness to accommodate the ambient noise level. The powerful combination of the microphone and speaker algorithms enables a high performance hands-free operation for users.
