Beyerdynamic has officially launched PHONUM, its Mobile Wireless Bluetooth speakerphone for meetings. It basically turns any space into conference room and easily connects with smartphones and laptops wirelessly for bidirectional speech transmission.
Main feature of Beyerdynamic PHONUM is its GECKO 360° technology which makes up of three components – FUNCTION, VOICE and SOUND. With its three modes – Fix, Follow and 360°, the microphone directivity can be adjusted to a point in one fixed direction, dynamically follow speaker or cover the whole room.
The GECKO 360° also takes care of playback thanks to its down firing loud speaker. The speaker itself is compact, easy to carry, easily connects with mobile devices and runs on a battery. It has specially arranged 360° three high quality microphones which ensure clear transmission of words in perfect intelligibility. It has best-in-class echo cancellation.
