Swiss Precision for excellent audio quality
You only learn from experience. This is common knowledge among most audio professionals. While theoretical approaches have their benefits in providing a deeper understanding of how sound behaves, how microphones work or need to be set up and what requirements the equipment has to fulfil, practical work experience is what truly builds know-how – and will sometimes result in entirely new findings. From practical applications spring new needs no one thought of in the lab. Why should a lavalier microphone be waterproof? Why would you change the capsule on a headset? And who would think of an integral helmet in acoustic research?
And yet exactly these special cases lead to particularly exciting technical advancements.
When audio professionals explain their requests and challenges to the Voice Technologies development team, the Swiss manufacturer strives to find the ideal solution. Sometimes, such cooperation for specific projects or individual pieces results in a new series of products for the benefit of a wider audience.
Successful products that resulted from customer requests:
When working with water in theatre performances, musicals or in broadcast, delicate technical devices like microphones need to be used most carefully. By applying a special treatment to the injection-moulded parts it is possible to waterproof the microphones to the point when they can even endure temporary submersion without taking damage. The popular VT500 lavalier microphone, for example, is also available as IPX-7 certified models VT500WATER or VT500WA. The VT500X provides even more protection against water and is IPX-8 certified. The waterproof designs proof advantageous even when no larger amounts of water are included in the production, as they also protect the electronics from sweat!
