Chinavision’s Throat Mic Shames Your Bluetooth

Back in the day, Bluetooth earpieces were only for suits–now they’re a dime a dozen. Then the iPhone came and we all started to cock our heads into the little mic that’s built into the included earbuds. If you’re feeling like a run of the mill cookie, cut from the one size fits all mold that Steve Jobs and company shoot for, then maybe Chinavision’s throat mic will get heads turning on the street.

So why would you ever need a throat mic? According to Chinavision, the throat mic can reduce up to 90% of background noise because the mic is just a bunch of sensors that read the vibrations from your throat–making it a great tool in noisy environments.

Here are just a few jobs where the throat mic could come in handy:

  • Construction work
  • Nightclub / bar staff
  • Stadium staff
  • Helicopter staff
  • Racing driver
  • Convertible car owner

My favorite job on the list: Paintball enthusiast!

Less suit and more covert-op, Chinavision’s throat mic plugs into any 2.5mm or 3.5mm jack radios and most walkie talkies. Chinavision’s Throat Mic will set you back $71, but cool has its price.
