Default VOID Mic Boom Sensitivity Improvement

There has been a number of instances in which people have mentioned that our mic is too quiet. In most cases, this can be resolved by bending the microphone closer to the mouth and many users don’t know that the mic is bendable or are afraid of damaging the mic. The mic boom uses Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) AKA thermoplastic rubbers, allowing it to be flexible and keep its structural integrity. And bending the microphone can increase mic gain by as much as 10dB.

We did some testing with multiple mic positions for their sensitivity.

P0: P1: P2: P3: P4:

Mic sensitivity chart

P0 (out of the box): -42.7dBr
P1 (15°): -40.8 dBr (2dB improvement)
P2 (30°): -37.8 dBr (5dB improvement, recommended)
P3 (45°): -34.5 dBr (8dB improvement)
P4 (90°): -31.5 dBr (11dB improvement)
We suggest adjusting the mic similar to P2 for the best performance.
