Voice Technologies presents the VT DUO at ISE 2015: Earhanger headset developed in cooperation with monitoring expert InEar

published February 2015

The best of two worlds: This is the guiding principle of the VT DUO, presented for the first time at the Integrated Systems Europe 2015 convention in Amsterdam. The earhanger headset combines an excellent InEar monitoring system with the omni-directional miniature microphone VT901 MKII. The development is based on extensive research: To achieve perfect wearing comfort, ear impressions have been digitally analysed and numerous test subjects were involved.

Being based on the VT901 MKII, the VT DUO stages voices and singing in a very natural way and with great presence. The frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz reproduces the full range of the human hearing capability. In addition, it features an omni-directional polar pattern to perfectly capture the voice of the wearer.

To achieve the design of the VT DUO, impressions of more than 500 human ears were analysed, guaranteeing a precise fit. Extensive field tests with experienced test subjects were conducted to further optimise the results. This led to an earphone that perfectly fits the anatomy of the human ear and offers maximum stability through its shape. For the development, Voice Technologies joined forces with the German monitoring specialist InEar.

InEar has more than 25 years of experience when it comes to designing individual monitoring solutions and is renowned throughout the world for its products used in broadcasting and on stage. By joining forces with InEar, Voice Technologies has achieved unrivalled wearing comfort and a perfect fit for the VT DUO.

“The VT DUO completes our extensive portfolio of earhanger solutions and offers unparalleled wearing comfort to the user thanks to thorough research”, explains Michael Hausammann, managing director of Voice Technologies. He adds: “InEar enjoys an excellent world-wide reputation. We are glad we were able to cooperate with the team around Andreas Schmitt and rely on their expertise to create a superb product.”
