Price: $59.95

Buddy USB 7G™ Sound Pod is our seventh-generation USB adapter with a built-in high-quality sound card that replaces a desktop or laptop computer’s sound card for high performance speech sound input and output. Speech Recognition applications on the PC rely on good-quality sound input to perform at peak efficiency. Plug-And-Play operation works right out of the box.

System Overview

Most PCs today have a built-in sound card or chipset, often placed close to noisy electrical circuitry such as the power supply or chips working at very high frequencies. This problem is particularly common in laptop computers.

Buddy USB 7G™ has the unique advantage of being largely immune to these noises as it is external to the computer chassis.

It offers full duplex operation for connection with a microphone and speakers that are well-suited to speech recognition applications

Buddy USB 7G Sound Pod has one programmable button. Customization for the button can be performed using MyBuddyMic Software.
