Cool Stuff: JK Audio BluePack Wireless Interview Tool

A handy device gets handier

About a winner of the Radio World “Cool Stuff” Award:

BluePack, already a cool device, now offers improved 7 kHz voice bandwidth using Bluetooth HD Voice wireless technology. JK Audio notes that HD Voice is available on many third-party headsets and cellphones, offering “wireless freedom with improved speech quality.”

This interview tool combines Bluetooth with pro audio electronics in a beltpack. It allows live man-on-the-street interviews through a cellphone equipped with Bluetooth, pairing to your phone like a Bluetooth wireless headset; it incorporates a microphone preamp and headphone amplifier. A 3.5 mm stereo line input jack allows recordings to be mixed into the broadcast. The 3.5 mm stereo line output jack provides your microphone signal on the left channel and Bluetooth audio on the right.

It also pairs to Bluetooth-equipped sound cards and music players in full-bandwidth stereo A2DP mode.
