Over the past two years, Jabra and Red Bull Media combined their imagination and engineering talent to cook up a revolutionary microphone called the X Mic. The fuzzy puck-shaped mic is built to capture groundbreaking levels of sound in the most chaotic environments.
The action mic uses advanced digital signal processing (DSP) to eliminate unwanted audio from recordings so all your left with is the sound of the action. It was designed to be circular so the wind doesn’t get caught in any edges and uses a particular blend of fabrics to create an efficient wind guard. The water-resistant mic is also lightweight and Bluetooth friendly so athletes and thrill seekers can easily clip the mic on their helmet, gear, or various places on their body. The X Mic was engineered to be used in noisy environments, picking up intimate audio such as the fine details of a race car blasting down a watery track at blistering speeds. It’s the equivalent of using multiple action cams, but for various aspects of sound. Imagine having Daredevil’s marvelous power to focus his hearing on specific sounds around him. The current example of the X Mic is almost production ready.
