Neckmike is a Swedish invention. It was initially designed for those riding motorbikes and snowmobiles in our sometimes harsh northern climate. The customers needed a robust and reliable solution they could use, with or without a helmet, at high speeds.
The microphone picks up speech directly from the throat, thus avoiding disturbing sounds like wind and engine noise. Together with the noise cancelling headphones, Neckmike provides a powerful communications system now used by industrial companies, rescue services, helicopter personnel, and the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV). The system is also popular in, for example, parachuting and other extreme sports.
Because Neckmike is worn by its user, it becomes more flexible than other solutions. The user can choose which helmet to wear, or if only the in-ear headphones and throat mic are sufficient. Another advantage of Neckmike is the advanced audio processing, which means that the user does not have to adapt the headset to his or her activity.
Syncore’s mission was to develop the dynamic voice filtering and wireless Bluetooth communication.

We already had much of the mechanical design in place when starting our collaboration with Syncore. With their help, we quickly established a flow for developing and integrating mechanics and electronics. This enabled us to develop the prototypes in very little time.
