Inputs & Outputs

The professional microphone preamp and powerful headphone amplifier make sure the message gets through. A 3.5 mm stereo line input jack allows recordings to be mixed into the broadcast. The 3.5 mm stereo line output jack provides your full bandwidth microphone signal on the left channel and Bluetooth return audio on the right channel. This allows you to make a full bandwidth backup recording using your favorite recorder.

*HD Voice: While standard phone calls have a narrow bandwidth of 300 Hz to 3.4 kHz, HD Voice calls offer 50 Hz to 7 kHz bandwidth. The additional 1.5 octaves on the low end gives voice a more natural sound, while the additional upper octave dramatically improves speech clarity and intelligibility.

*Wireless HD Calls: To take advantage of this extended bandwidth, both phones on the call must support HD Voice, and both phones must be on the same carrier, in coverage areas that support HD Voice.
