Students in the back of the room won’t have to
strain their ears to hear the teacher with this
new classroom microphone system from
Audio Enhancement. According to the
company, its new Ultimate Pal is a
multispeaker system with a wireless
microphone that allows teachers to turn up the
volume equally throughout the entire
classroom.

The Ultimate Pal is equipped with four
portable speakers and a wireless microphone
that gives teachers and students alike the
opportunity to speak, present, and read from
anywhere in the classroom. Adjustable audio
controls for tone, balance, and volume allow
teachers to move about freely, without having
to worry about whether they can be heard
clearly by every student. The new system also
has volume controls for individual speakers,
so teachers can concentrate their voices on
one or more specific areas of the room. The
Ultimate Pal is different from past generations
of the company’s wireless audio systems
because, unlike its predecessors, it does not
operate on FM radio frequencies. Instead, it
uses infrared light technology. By eliminating
the need for radio channels, the newest
version allows a school to operate several
systems simultaneously without being forced
to use up a set number of
government-allocated radio frequencies, the
company said.

The Ultimate Pal also allows for group
teaching, giving instructors the chance to use
more than one microphone together on a
single system. There are inputs for TV,VCR,
and multimedia tools. The four-speaker,
one-microphone system costs $1,795. The
product is also available without the wireless
microphone for $1,595.
