Attention all Twirlingers! we are back!

After two years’ development we proudly introduce our upgraded Twirling720 Lite V2,

a versatile USB microphone embedded with powerful noise cancellation technologies

Twirling 720 Lite Highlights


1. On-chip Noise cancelling modes provide more than 20dB SNR boost with Twirling’s advanced beamforming technologies. Even when you are in a crowded place with people besides you talking, your audience at the other end can hear you, and only you.

2. The high quality modes provide mono (omnidirectional, cardioid, subcardioid, supercardioid, hypercardioid, figure-8) or stereo 48K/24bit outputs. Whether in a live musical performance or a dialogue, your charming voice and your string vibration, can be perfectly recorded and brought to your audience.

3. We do not forget where we came from. Our 720 Lite V2 now supports 48K 24bit native four-channel first order ambisonic (FOA) SN3D B format output. VR recorders can use it to generate VR content offline or stream VR audio directly to the compatible platforms, e.g. Facebook 360 and Youtube.

4. In a face to face interview, 720 Lite can separate your voice from your interviewee and save them into different channels for future automatic speech recognition (ASR) or documentation. Up to 4 channels are supported.

5. The microphone has Type-C USB output, which means it is both PC and mobile compatible.

6. The Twirling720 Lite smart microphone supports a whopping list of 18 output modes, probably the most of its kind. Whether you are in a live broadcast, dialogue, lecture, instrument performance, or conference, there will be one mode that just suits you fine.

7. All audio processing are real time with extremely low latency, thanks to our highly optimized built-in TwirlingVoice algorithm and newly upgraded processor, more computing capability yet lower power consumption. The new ECM microphones has SNR 78dB, more than 10dB higher the previous generation.

8. We also provide a free companion software Twirling720 Studio, allow you easily switching modes as well as doing other cool stuff such as converting B format to binaural. And we continue to provide the Android App for demonstating what you can do with 720 Lite on a mobile phone.
