The Monorean Pro kit includes an extremely sensitive microphone that will allow you to whisper with your partner during an exam. It is optional and simply requires a connection to the connector with the label: .
The microphone can be placed anywhere on your body due to the length of the cable.
How sensitive is it?
This is—understandably—a general question. The Monorean Pro’s microphone has been specifically designed to capture a slight whisper in a quiet environment, which is very common in an exam situation. However, you need to understand that you tend to stop vocalizing when you try to speak very low. Instead of talking, you emit a humming sound that will be incomprehensible even if you’d be literally speaking directly to your partner’s ear without a microphone. This is the trick to properly using the microphone; you should pay attention to vocalizing as well as speaking as low as possible.
Vocalize as much as possible when speaking—whispering into the microphone.
Using the Microphone Correctly
If you hold the microphone directly in front of your mouth while speaking, you might generate unwanted noise as a result of air hitting the microphone as you speak. Place the microphone slightly to the side of your mouth instead of directly into it.
If the microphone is covered with fabric (concealed under your shirt), you can talk directly into the microphone without generating unwanted noise. However, it would be best to avoid the microphone rubbing against your clothes as this would also generate unwanted noise.
Please do not put too many layers of clothing over the microphone, as this could make it less sensitive.
Hiding the microphone
One of the best places to put the microphone is on your wrist because you’ll be able to cover your mouth when speaking into it. Not only will you be able to hide your lips while whispering, but you will also be able to use your hand to create a “box” that will amplify the sound that reaches the microphone.
