2021 Resolutions: Two Products That Make Your Home Office Sound Better
Instantly Upgrade Any Office With Shure’s MV5C Home Office Microphone and AONIC 50 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
CHICAGO, Jan. 11, 2021– With a larger portion of the global workforce now adapted to working from home, having the proper setup to communicate virtually is essential to productivity and collaboration.
Audio technology company Shure recently commissioned a survey by Illuminas that found poor audio impacts one third of all virtual meetings. The study also found that four out of five video conferencing frustrations stem from poor audio quality – intrusive background noise, echoes, and audio drop outs – making it difficult to hear other meeting participants.
Selecting the right microphone or headphones with an internal microphone is crucial to ensuring professional quality sound and hearing every detail during remote video conferences with clients and colleagues.
Communicate With Confidence
Unlike laptop microphones that pick up every sound in the room, the new Shure MV5C Home Office Microphone is a directional microphone that prioritizes the user’s voice, not the environment. An ideal solution for any teacher, student or professional, the MV5C is a sleek, digital microphone that provides pristine, studio-quality audio for conferencing and video calls.
Set-up is intentionally simplified, so anyone can unbox the MV5C, plug it into their computer, and that’s it. Featuring Shure’s Speech Enhancement Mode, the microphone enhances the user’s voice for an even clearer sound. Presenters can speak with assurance knowing that their voice will be heard clearly during virtual pitches, presentations, and lessons without having to repeat themselves or be asked to talk louder. The MV5C is also compatible with software video conferencing applications like Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
“Whether you’re an employee presenting to leadership or a teacher tackling the world of distance-learning, everyone requires high-quality audio to help deliver their message,” said Eduardo Valdes, Senior Director, Global Marketing, Pro and Consumer Audio, at Shure. “We developed the MV5C to be a one-step set-up and limit any additional audio frustrations that take away from focusing on the details at hand. Now, remote work doesn’t have to feel distant anymore.”
The MV5C features a retro design that easily fits on any desk. The adjustable stand allows users to easily tilt the mic toward the talker’s mouth. Headphones are optional when using the MV5C, allowing users to take a break and listen through the computer’s built-in speaker or external speakers. The microphone is compatible with Mac or Windows devices by using the supplied USB-A or USB-C cables for a direct connection.
Tune Out Background Noise
For those who need to be mobile while on a call or need to tune out noise in louder environments, the latest AONIC 50 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones are the right solution. AONIC 50 provides studio-quality sound with exceptional comfort and durability while helping eliminate audio distractions. Engineered from decades of professional audio experience, the wireless noise cancelling headphones prioritize comfort with a design based on Shure’s pro headphone line - developed for audio engineers who wear them for hours at a time during long recording sessions.
Now available in White/Tan, AONIC 50 is beautifully crafted with elegant stitching on an adjustable headband for a precise ear-to-ear fit. Equipped with two unique listening options, a simple flip of the switch toggles between blocking out the noise with Noise Cancellation or interacting with the outside world in Environment Mode. Both modes are adjustable, allowing anyone to select the best experience whether they are participating on a video conference from home or listening to their favorite album.
With up to 20 hours of battery life, users can make it through their work week with minimal charging time. Fingertip controls provide quick access to answer calls, adjust volume, or pause music for maximum efficiency. AONIC 50 Wireless Headphones offer Bluetooth® 5 wireless technology for enhanced stability and a range of up to 30 feet.
AONIC 50 Wireless Headphones can connect to wired sources when wireless isn’t an option. The headphones include a 3.5mm analog audio connection and USB-C cable for charging and high-resolution audio, to ensure an uninterrupted connection to any device.
AONIC 50 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones are available in three color options (white/tan, black, brown) and retail for $349 USD at select retailers and www.shure.com/aonic50.
