The snail-like Tiki USB microphone from Blue that was revealed at CES 2012 has now been released.
This is a intelligent ultra-compact USB microphone designed to give you great audio for Skype calls and voice notes in rooms with even moderate ambient noise. The Tiki is less than 3″ long, and it connects directly to the USB port of your Mac or PC—perfect for bloggers, journalists, musicians and constant travelers. The mic even comes with an extended docking cable and a carrying case for versatility and convenience.
The new Tiki is the world’s first USB microphone that mimics the intelligence of human hearing by focusing on desired sounds, minimizing background noise and knowing when to mute altogether. The Tiki has two selectable operating modes to offer the best results for different applications.
For applications like Skype, and iChat, the “Intelligent Speech Mode” brings your voice to the forefront of a call or chat, while noise-canceling technology minimizes the competing background noise to make sure you’re heard properly.
For singers, musicians and others who need to record, the “Natural Recording Mode” is designed to capture high-fidelity, clear audio from wide range of sources from vocals to acoustic guitar.
The Tiki mic is available at a price of $59 from Best Buy right now, and it’s coming to Apple Stores as well as many other outlets within the next few weeks.Image source: http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/c0.0.402.402/p403x403/480455_10151083329551468_1770353927_n.jpg http://chonlauxanh.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/44d5a86470ophone.jpg.jpg http://cdn.thenextweb.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/2012/07/Screen-Shot-2012-07-05-at-12.05.30-PM-300×250.jpg
