Blue Microphones announces Tiki the first USB mic employing advanced DSP that mimics the intelligence of human hearing by focusing on desired sounds, minimizing background noise and knowing when to mute altogether. Combining proprietary noise-cancelling technology, Voice Isolation and Intelligent Mute, Tiki dramatically improves the intelligibility of communication in noisy environments and is as compact as a standard USB flash drive! Tiki offers two mode selections: Intelligent Speech Mode for superior intelligibility of communication as well as Natural Recording Mode for recording a wider range of sound sources including instruments, singing or location recording.
For unequivocally clear conference calls, Tiki’s Intelligent Speech Mode brings your voice to the forefront of any conversation, while Tiki’s noise-cancelling technology reduces background noise, computer fans, keyboard typing and other unwanted sounds. Also featuring Intelligent Mute, Tiki automatically soft-mutes the mic when you are not speaking, eliminating your contribution of background noise, while instantly detecting your voice to bring you back into the conversation seamlessly. Tiki’s cordless design plugs directly into a laptop’s USB port with driverless installation on both PC and Mac. MSRP $59, Tiki is a 2012 CES Innovations award winner in computer peripherals.
