beyerdynamic Releases Updates for Phonum Wireless Bluetooth Speakerphone

Farmingdale, NY. – May 5, 2021 – beyerdynamic, one of the world’s leading audio industry manufacturers of headphones, microphones and conferencing products, announces a firmware update for Phonum, their wireless Bluetooth® and USB speakerphone with high-quality sound transmission honored with the Best of CES 2021 Award. This firmware update brings new features to their ultra-versatile conferencing tool.

One of the most notable updates is the improved button synchronization using Microsoft® Teams. This improvement includes optimizing the joint operation between Phonum and Microsoft® Teams when a USB connection is active (including easier answering/hanging up calls and synchronous mute function). It also has a USB auto power-on: as soon as Phonum is connected to a powered-on laptop via a USB cable, the device starts automatically and is immediately ready for operation. When connected to a charging device, an automatic announcement of the battery status is made.

There were also several audio enhancements: The volume levels have been set to maximum sound with minimum distortion and the last used volume is saved for the next session. Regarding the voice call enhanced routing engine, the voice output has been prioritized (over music), independent of the connection source. If the Phonum is connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth in addition to an active USB connection (laptop), the existing voice application is prioritized. Secondary voice calls are now possible; the device will provide user notifications with blinking LEDs. Active calls via the communication platform will not be interrupted by incoming calls via Bluetooth® anymore.

A notable bug fix is that no possible distortion noise from Bluetooth® devices during voice call via a USB connection.

beyerdynamic’s Phonum combines three capsules in the microphone for high-quality sound with proprietary technology that captures all spoken words and eliminates echo sound or background noise. Designed for mobile conferences over the internet, the Phonum operates through Bluetooth with a PC, laptop or smartphone. For increased functionality, the Phonum features a USB port for applications with poor radio communication. Phonum enhances large conferences, including video and teleconference, for up to eight people with three microphone modes, including omnidirectional, cardioid and beamforming. The beamforming mode automatically adjusts the microphone in the direction of the person speaking.

Phonum is powered by a lithium ion battery that lasts up to 12 hours and can be charged through the USB port. Users can operate Phonum through intuitive touch sensors, allowing the user the accept or end calls, increase or decrease the volume, select polar patterns, and mute or active the microphone. Phonum includes a hard case for conference on the go and a USB-C cable for quick charging and conferencing.
