Mikme features a battery-powered high performance microphone with an integrated audio recorder which can be used via a person’s mobile phone, and which costs much less than comparable professional products. The idea developed by Philipp Sonnleitner, the founder of the Austrian startup, inspired more than 1,500 musicians, journalists and bloggers.
Mikme is a microphone which records in sound studio quality, and is very easy to use. The cube with the same size as a coffee cup has only one button for switching the device on and off. A patented Bluetooth transmission process enables data to be sent to the smart phone after recording (the device functions wirelessly), which can then be processed by a special App.
Sonnleitner has years of experience as a software and product developer for the former Austrian manufacturer AKG. His product has aroused interest on the part of media groups such as BBC and ProSieben.
