World first bone conduction michrophone by Temco
Picking up human voice in the inner ear by principled patent, Temco Japan Co, LTD was established in march 1985 on purpose of developing and manufacturing bone conduction products.
Bone conduction microphone used to be known and described as a higher tolerance to prevent picking surrounded noise and carry human voice most effectively. But it still lacked sound clarity to the market.
Succeeding in combining a speaker and microphone into a single case, Temco became the first manufacture to develop bone conduction ear microphone allowing two-way communications with single ear.
Furthermore, meeting an enhanced and unique bone conduction interface amp, Temco improved more user friendly product such as hands free VOX(voice induced circuit).
With acquisition of the patent for bone conduction speaker in 1988, along with bone conduction microphone, Temco organized a system to be able to produce every possible products related to bone conduction technology.
Company name Temco stands for Tokyo Ear Microphone Company. As its name suggests ear microphone has been always leading model of Temco from the starting business.
In the bone conduction market, Temco is known as one of the worldwide cutting edge.
For epoch making communication brought by Temco
Temco also succeeded in devising a patented high performance miniature bone conduction speaker to convert sound signals into vibrations.
This revolutionary new speaker helped to apply the new technology to variety product development.
Depending on how efficiently bone conduction mic’s picking up the vibration from the bone, the specification will be widely changed.
To improve better mic sensitivity does not really show its true strength of bone conduction. There are still many hurdles to overcome like a picking up surrounded noise or others.
Even in such a difficult condition, Temco has been developed new original method called VSCM, vibration sound conversion microphone, to solve above issues for better bone conduction production.
Now Temco distributes a lot of unique models by variety combination of Temco’s own bone conduction methods.
● Original bone conduction technology by Temco
● For epoch making communication brought by Temco
● Ear microphone picks up vocal cord vibration from auditory canal.
● You can communicate by wearing ear microphone in one ear.
● Bone conduction head set between bone conduction speaker and current microphone.
● You can hear surrounding sounds with ears free.Even under the high noise level, you can transit your voice picking up the sound from top of the head to temporal area .
Furthermore, Temco devotes main effort to upgrading variety interfaces.
Applying new bone conduction techniques of listening sound and picking up voice
to advanced communication, Temco provides cutting edged communication
tool with higher value-added in many markets.
For further information of other product lineup, like free communication tool(received / transmitted + received), welfare product (Kikuchan) and helmet type bone conduction (Shellshocker) etc, please check further information on each pages.
