Mobile Reportophone
The S25 Reportophone connects to your current or future mobile phone. It has the same features as
the world famous S20A for 2-wire phone lines use. If you have used an S20A before, you will be
immediately familiar with the features of this truly mobile version. A number of interface cables are
available to connect the S25 to the majority of mobile telephones. See cables listed overleaf.
The housing is a heavy-duty but lightweight metal case. Neutrik connectors are used for audio
connections, locked XLR (MIC) and 1/4" Jack (HPH) avoids accidentally unplugging. Recording
(LINE) in/outputs are also on 1/4" Jack. All audio connections are balanced and filtered against HF
pick up. Together with the shielding of the metal case this gives a very good attenuation of all sorts
of external noise, enabling the use of a mobile phone in close proximity to the S25.
High signal quality is achieved by using dedicated signal processing (mixing, equalizing and
compression) to make optimal use of the available bandwidth. This provides the studio with an
exceptionally good sound quality with a minimum of noise and distortion especially when used with
HD-voice. The overall signal delay depends solely on the existing delay in the network.
The high-level headphone monitor output provides good communication with the studio, even in
noisy environments. The user can adjust his own balance in his headphones between the send
signal and the return signal coming from the studio. Setting input levels is very easy with the help of
an LED display with a clear good/bad indication (green/red).
Dedicated processors control the state and fast charging / conditioning of the 4 AA size NiMh
batteries. A 5 segment blue LED bar indicates the charge-state of the batteries, a flashing led acts
as a final reminder. With a one hour fast charge the unit can be used continuously for more than 10
hours, a 5 minute "rush” charge gives you more than one hour of use. Intelligent power management
avoids discharge when not in use. Non rechargeable long life batteries can serve as a backup
solution. The unit comes with a wide input voltage range power supply with user interchangeable
Euro, US and UK style mains plugs. As an option a car battery power cable is available.
Weight: approx. 700 gr. with batteries.
Dimensions (w x h x d): 120 x 48 x 160 mm.

S25 Mobile Reportophone
The S25 Reportophone is the perfect tool to use in combination with the AMR-WB HD-voice
telephone system.
A growing number of carriers around the world have rolled out HD-voice services based on
this G.722 wideband standard that offers a 7 kHz bandwidth.
The combination of the S25 Reportophone a good microphone and a suitable mobile
telephone will offer you a very good audio quality at a seasonal price.
The S25 Reportophone can also be used as a high quality “front-end” to record your comment
on your Smartphone or tablet.
Interface cables are available for a wide variety of mobile telephones, smart phones and tablets:
Older models of Motorola, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Mitsubishi, LG, Alcatel, Sagem
Older models with PopPort connector or 2,5 mm jack.
Latest Nokia phones all use the Nokia AV connector.
Minijack, tip, 2 rings, sleeve
Nokia 2,4 mm and Samsung use the same connector but are wired differently.
Sony Ericsson:
2 versions are available with different connectors, see list.
iPhone 3Gs, iPhone4, iPad.
Most versions of the HTC Smartphone.

This information is not in the user manual!
The audio bandwidth of S25 Reportophone in combination with a standard mobile phone is limited by the capacity of the GSM connection: 8 kHz
sample rate / 8 bit. The quality is comparable with that of S20A Reportophone as it has the same kind of processing inside. Some people tell us
it is even better than POTS.
More and more telephone companies are now offering "HD-voice" / G722.2 also known as AMR-WB ("Adaptive Multirate Wideband"). This
system offers 8 kHz bandwidth and is currently available in a number of countries. Some broadcasters are already using it with very good
Most modern mobile telephones are equipped with this codec - certainly the more expensive ones - and the S25 Reportophone and EA916
journalist unit are supporting this also.
You can set up such a system with an S25 unit as a stationary hybrid or an EA916 Journalist unit with suitable mobile telephone in the studio.
Very soon the new Eela Audio EA816 GSM stationary hybrid supporting HD-Voice will be available too. Preliminary information about the EA816
can be found on www.eela.n/EA816
Available mobile telephones with AMR-WB codec as of August 2012:

New models of mobile telephones and Smartphone’s are introduced almost weekly. Most of the new models are based on the same internal
hardware so interfacing stays the same. Nevertheless it is a challenge to keep up with those developments, the list of cables for the S25 and
mobile phones is never complete. If in doubt or your model is not in the list please contact us. For the current list se the download pages of the
Eela Audio website.
We found that there are different Nokia telephones using the same connector but with different wiring.
The 1100 series, 1600 series and HS47 series requires a slightly different cable than the older HDC5. With the standard HDC5 cable these
telephones are not recognised by the S25 Reportophone. We do offer special cables for these telephones, for details see price list.
For many mobile phones it is relatively easy to make your own cable. You can contact us for a diagram for your telephone.
The Apple iPhone and iPad do have the same connector as the Nokia AV3,5-series but are wired differently.
Important information on NiMH batteries and built-in charger
Always discharge new or really empty batteries before use!
A full discharge / charging cycle will take between 7 - 8 hours for 2000 mAh batteries.
A full charge of 2000 mAh batteries as supplied will allow you the use of minimum of 10 hours.
(We have tested these with high level music on headphones for up to 18 hours)
New S25 Reportophones are shipped with 2700 mAh batteries.

Pictures how to disable the auto shut off function. The standard versions of the unit will shut off automatically if not active for approx. 10 minutes.
The timer circuit will retrigger if the input level reaches a level between the 2 green LEDs of the level display. If the input level stays below that
threshold for approx. 10 minutes the unit will shut down to preserve battery power.
You can disable this function by soldering 2 points together.
Also learn how to use the unit as a stationary hybrid (V2 only, SN > 0100).

The S25 is built with this in mind. The aluminium case is chromium plated on the inside and outside thus forming a Faraday cage.
When opening the unit, make sure that you re-establish the contact between the cover and base unit upon assembling. This is done with the 4
screws holding the top cover. Also the connectors on the back must have an electrical connection to the base unit.
The input electronics are specially designed to eliminate the typical radiation noise of the telephone. Always use a symmetric, screened signal
cable for the microphone and make sure the screening is connected to pin 1 on both sides. We also found that there is a huge difference
between various types of microphones. Popular reporter microphones like the Sennheiser MD21 or MD42 are good as well as the Beyer
Dynamic M58 Reporter microphone.
