Philips SpeechMike Premium LFH3500

Features of the SpeechMike Premium

With a decade of experience testing, evaluating and working with all types of digital dictation, transcription, speech recognition and various audio headsets, I’m proud to say that the new Philips® SpeechMike Premium is hands-down the best handheld, programmable microphone that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

As the SpeechMike Premium has reached ELECTRIC status in my book, I’ve compiled a list of the top 15 reasons to upgrade.  Essentially, this is a list of enhancements the SpeechMike Premium microphone has over its predecessor, the Philips SpeechMike III.

1. Enhanced Barcode Scanner – Increased distance barcode scanning offering up to 60cm/23inch barcode scanning.

2. New Ergonomics – New pearl-metal colored polished casing and buttons along with doubled-wall thickness in vulnerable areas, ensures durability while preventing unwanted operational noises.
