Kensington lock slot to prevent theft.

There are no buttons on the right side of the main unit.

There are no buttons on the upper side of the main unit, but you can check 4 out of the 8 microphones installed on the main unit.

So, to check the noise suppression technology of the Ankerwork SR500 Speakerphone, I recorded while turning the circulator on and off. The comparison target is the built-in microphone of a notebook PC.

The movie that was verified is below. While the sound recorded with the PC's built-in microphone contains a 'goo' wind noise, the sound recorded with the Ankerwork SR500 Speakerphone can be confirmed that the wind noise is suppressed and the background noise is suppressed. .
