Antimicrobial housing
The SpeechMike Premium’s housing and buttons are
made of antimicrobial synthetics, guarding it against
all kinds of germs. Antimicrobial materials work
against a wide range of different microorganisms
such as bacteria (e.g. pneumococcal bacilli and
multiresistant microorganisms such as MRSA),
viruses (e.g. HIV, influenza, etc.), fungi (e.g.
Aspergillus niger), or algae. The antimicrobial effect
on the SpeechMike Premium lasts for at least five
Barcode scanner
Link client or patient data to a recorded file simply
by scanning a bar code (SpeechMike Premium
barcode devices only). The scanned information is
automatically attached to the dictation file,
streamlining the documentation process. All
identifying information is entered accurately,
increasing security and potential for cost savings.
With the SpeechMike Premium, it’s possible to scan
barcodes from up to 60 cm / 23 inches distance,
twice the distance compared to its predecessor.
Ergonomically shaped
As the rear of a dictation microphone is as important
as the front, Philips put an emphasis on shaping it in
a way so that it perfectly fits the human hand and
reduces unintentional use of buttons. The trigger and
the “command” button on the rear housing are
engineered to be exactly where they need to be.
There has never been a desktop dictation device that
is as ergonomic as the SpeechMike Premium.
Free-floating microphone
The microphone in the new SpeechMike Premium is
decoupled from its housing for the most incredible
crystal clear recording performance ever to be
delivered by a desktop dictation device. The
completely redesigned microphone suspension
guarantees that almost no background, touch, click,
air or structure-borne noise is recorded. This
technique is derived from studio microphones to
make sure there are no sound distortions
whatsoever – and to guarantee outstanding speech
recognition results.
of situations this feature can be greatly beneficial; just
think of an incoming phone call or someone stepping
in your office. In addition to that, custom events can
be programmed, e.g., to pause and to continue the
Integrated pop filter
The microphone area of the SpeechMike Premium is
made of many different layers to make it sound as
clear and original as possible. One of those is a fleece
inserted above and below the microphone capsule.
The fleece filters out sound distortions such as pop
and hiss noise, guaranteeing perfect results even if
dictating closely into the microphone.
Larger speaker area
Compared to its predecessor, the SpeechMike
Premium is equipped with a double sized-speaker
area that enables it to play back recordings in clear
and crisp quality.
Laser-scanned steel trackball
The SpeechMike Premium includes a built-in
highprecision stainless steel trackball. Self lubricated
and abrasive resistant Teflon bearings guarantee a
smooth operation over the entire lifetime. In
combination with a laser scanner and self-cleaning
features, the trackball is as precise and durable as
never before. On top of that, the trackball can even
be taken out of the device for cleaning, if this should
ever be required.
Metal microphone grille
A well-engineered microphone grille is able to make
a high-end microphone as in the new SpeechMike
Premium stand out even more. The hexagonal holes
used for the metal grille feature three times more
open surface than its predecessor, engineered to
provide crystal clear recordings.
Optimized control panel
With four freely configurable function buttons
placed at the lower area of the control panel, the
SpeechMike Premium can be further personalized
for any user and application. Work the way you want
– a benefit that only a Philips SpeechMike offers.
Philips is the creator of the ergonomic zones design.
SpeechMike Premium has been tested and proven by
users to have the most comfortable fit in the human
hand. The dictation zone is optimized to keep thumb
movement to a minimum. The buttons needed for
the actual dictation functions are placed centrally, in
the area most convenient for the thumb,
guaranteeing perfect ergonomics and nonfatiguing
usage for the user. Less frequently needed function
buttons are clearly arranged above and below. All
buttons used are formed to give as much tactile
feedback as possible.
Integrated motion sensor
Polished surface
Freely configurable keys
Being on the cutting edge of technology, the Philips
SpeechMike Premium comes with an integrated
motion sensor, making it the first stationary dictation
device that can be controlled by the movement of
your hand. It detects when it’s put on the table,
mutes the microphone, and once it is being picked up
again it unmutes the microphone. There are plenty
The housing of the SpeechMike Premium is made of
high-class polymers. It is endued with a polished
surface and the material includes a pearl metal
additive providing a high quality metallic effect and
making it non-sensitive to touch noises and
