The Philips Boundary Layer Microphone not only boasts an elegant design, it is also highly practical. Its plate-shaped foot provides the ideal conducting surface for enabling sound to reach the microphone. Unwanted reverberations are minimized by a rubber lamination, and the microphone also sits on flat surfaces without being effected by any vibration. The cable rewind is situated under the plate and can be operated intuitively, allowing cables to be stored without the danger of tangling. Moreover, wires can be kept taut during recording. Together, the cable coupling and the microphone give the device a sleek and elegant look.
