Can I use external microphones or extender microphones with the Owl?
This article applies to the Meeting Owl and Meeting Owl Pro.
We don't currently recommend external microphones with the Owl.
- Meeting Owl has an 8 microphone array will reliably pick up audio within a 12’ radius
- Meeting Owl Pro has 8 has smart mics that will equalize speaking volume and reliably pick up audio within an 18’ radius.
For an even larger pickup range, we recommend using Owl Connect to link 2 Meeting Owl Pros, which can to extend the range of the Meeting Owl Pro by 8 feet in any direction. This has the added benefit of extending the range of the Meeting Owl Pro’s video as well, which external microphones could not give.
