Sonim Partners with IASUS Concepts for Throat Mics
Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | Comments

Sonim Technologies and IASUS Concepts teamed up to provide a hands-free communications experience on Sonim’s XP8 and XP5s handsets.

The IASUS STEALTH Bluetooth throat microphone is the world’s first and most advanced of its kind, a statement said. Unlike regular microphones, throat mics convert audio signals from vibrations on the neck, making it an ideal communications system when wearing full-face and N95-rated respirators. The microphone has a fully modular system with a variety of headset options and a special “lights out” stealth mode for tactical missions. It can also be safely and quickly released from neck.

“With the increased use of PPE (personal protection equipment) in public safety and healthcare due to COVID-19, hands-free communications solutions are essential to help frontline workers make it through the day,” said Tom Wilkinson, CEO, Sonim Technologies. “This combined with the ability to thoroughly and properly disinfect your mobile devices and accessories is essential to reduce the spread of this virus and other pathogens.”

With the SNIPER PRO II heavy-duty wired throat microphones, first responders can communicate handsfree with integrated push-to-talk (PTT) support on the XP8 and XP5s, while wearing PPE. The large dome PTT button can be worn under clothing or protective gear and activated easily with gloves. For more precise PTT control, there is an optional finger PTT that can be fitted inside the glove for quick access and virtual “handsfree” activation. Both PTT options were designed to be used without compromising the ability to use both hands simultaneously, ideal for tactical and mission-critical operations.
